“As consumers and governments aim to reduce their carbon footprints, heat pumps are growing in popularity as a way to cut emissions associated with the way we heat our homes.
Heating air and water for buildings was responsible for 12% of the world’s energy-related carbon emissions in 2019, according to the International Energy Agency, roughly half the amount produced by the entire global transportation sector.
To curb those emissions, governments in the U.S., and across Europe, are encouraging the use of heat pumps as part of broader net-zero plans, by offering subsidies, tax breaks and rebates. Consumers from Vermont to Louisiana are embracing the devices, despite the costs involved in buying and installing them. In many cases they are awkward to retrofit.”

Since the main benefit of heat pumps are their ability to pull hot (or cold) air from the ground, water, and even surrounding air they do not need to generate heat. This means no need for burning fossil fuels like gas, oil, or coal. Heat pumps serve a dual purpose since they can heat your home during the winter and cool it during the summer months. While installation costs might be pricey, they will save money on energy bills in the long run.
