Heat pumps work in cold climates
Highly efficient heat pumps are one of the most economical ways to keep a Maine home comfortable year round. They keep you warm in winter and stabilize long-term energy costs..
Heat pump users who previously heated their homes solely with conventional boilers and furnaces can use a heat pump to offset fuel usage and significantly reduce overall energy costs. Users who limit the use of their heat pumps—treating them as a backup system—do not offset as much heating fuel, and therefore limit their savings. So the more you push your heat pump, the less your boiler or furnace will need to run.
