Air Source Heat Pump

Air source heat pumps (ASHP)–often known as “mini-splits”–are electric appliances that provide heating and cooling by moving heat into a building (for heating) or out of a building (for cooling).

Today’s cold climate air source heat pumps can extract heat from the air all the way down to -13°F. In the summer, the process is reversed, and heat is absorbed from the cooler indoor air and moved to the warmer outdoor air.


What are the benefits?

  • Almost 75% of energy used in a typical New York home is for heating and cooling. Heat pumps can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars a year on your heating bill.
  • Heat pumps also provide air conditioning and dehumidification more efficiently than window units and most central air conditioning systems.
  • The filtration provided by heat pump systems can significantly reduce allergens in your home, benefiting sensitive individuals.
  • Eliminating or reducing the combustion of fossil fuels in your home improves home safety as well.
  • Converting from systems that burn fossil fuels to electric powered air source heat pumps will help reduce your carbon footprint and dependence on imported fossil fuels.
  • Using solar PV or other renewable electricity sources can further offset emissions from the electricity powering your heat pump.
  • Air source heat pumps can be installed in applications ranging from central solutions to providing heating and cooling to individual rooms.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

What will it look like in my home?


Ductless air source heat pumps can be installed as a primary source of heating and cooling or installed to heat and cool specific rooms. This could include, for example, installing ductless units in the most frequently used rooms like family rooms or master bedrooms to displace heating or cooling from your existing system, or placing ductless units in rooms or new additions that never seem to be warm or cool enough.

What will it look like in my home?


Ducted air source heat pumps have an outdoor unit that is connected to a building’s ductwork, which is used to distribute heating or air conditioning throughout the home. Ducted (also known as central or unitary) use your home’s existing ductwork, though not all ductwork is sized adequately for heat pumps. A HeatSmart partner installer can tell you if your ductwork is sized adequately and what modifications may be necessary during a free site visit.
