Recently, Dr HVAC was featured in an article by the Globe and Mail that discusses rebates and programs to encourage energy efficiency. Brendon Aldridge, President of Dr HVAC also offered some insight into energy efficient solutions for cooling and heating a home by installing an air source heat pump.
Also known as a hybrid system, air source heat pumps are impressively adaptable appliances—in the summer, they’re a hyper-efficient air conditioner. In the fall, they reverse direction to bring the warmth in, so you don’t need to turn on your furnace until it’s colder. You have complete control as to when to switch on your gas furnace.
