Are you looking over your home heating bills with shock? Are you still reeling from the high cost of running your air conditioning this past summer? Are you wondering if there is any way to get those costs down?
“Nearly two thirds of the energy used in Canadian homes is used for heating and cooling. A heat pump can be a great way to get your heating AND cooling bills down, while keeping your home comfortable year-round,” advised Mark Pooles, Oosterveld Heating and Air Conditioning General Manager.
How do heat pumps work? Pooles explained, “In the winter, a heat pump extracts heat from the cold outside air and transfers it to inside our home. Then, a compressor uses electricity to increase the temperature of the heat extracted from the outside air. In summer, heat pumps provide cooling by transferring warm indoor air to the outside.”
Poole added, “The energy provided by the outside air is free: consumers only pay for the electricity used by the compressor. This is where the savings lie.”
Oosterveld Heating and Air Conditioning can supply and install ducted heat pumps, or ductless mini-split systems. And, there are currently large government rebates available to those who would like to switch.
‘The government of Canada is offering rebates of up to $6000 to homeowners who are switching from gas or oil-based heating systems to a heat pump,” explained Pooles. “Our team at Oosterveld can walk homeowners through these rebates and make sure that they get the money they are entitled to, as well as the quality of workmanship that Oosterveld is known for.”
Pooles continued, “There are so many upsides to switching to a heat pump. They are more efficient, they are a cleaner system, your air quality is better, they provide both heating and cooling, they are long lasting… it’s all a win/win.”
To make the decision even simpler, Oosterveld is offering an exclusive, limited time offer that includes the up to $6,000 in rebates and savings, PLUS no payments and no interest on your new home heat pump system.
“The team at Oosterveld really believe that these heat pump systems are a great option for our clients, so we want to make that decision something that anyone can make. Contact us today to get your heat pump installed as soon as possible. You will love it!” said Pooles.
