Heat Pump Installation in Ottawa

We Work with a Variety of Heat Pump Systems in Ottawa

A heat pump is a wonderful option for your home comfort system. If it’s time to start considering a replacement for your present heat pump or you’re thinking of installing one for the first time, consider heat pumps for a variety of heating needs.

For those looking to economize, a heat pump can provide comparable heating and cooling more efficiently than electric baseboards, oil furnaces and electric furnaces. The Canadian climate does not allow for a heat pump to be used a single heating source. However, the modern high efficiency heat pumps can be added to any propane or oil heating system and offer considerable savings.

A heat pump does exactly what its name implies–it pumps heat into your home during the cold months and pumps heat out of your home during the warm months. How it works is that it absorbs heat from one location and moves it to another. Therefore, it acts as an air conditioner and a heating source.

  • A heat pump installation comprises two parts: an indoor component and an outdoor component
  • The indoor component is normally known as an air handler and looks similar to a typical gas furnace
  • The outdoor component looks exactly like a central air conditioning system – it can improve the air quality in your home by moving air from outside into your home and vice-versa

People often think that heat pumps in Ottawa are expensive to run since they operate on electricity. That’s a fair assumption to make since electricity is more expensive than natural gas in this region. However, the truth is that heat pumps can help reduce your total utility expenses every month! Heat pumps have a much higher coefficient of performance (COP) rating than gas, propane or electric furnaces. This means that heat pumps generate more heat (or remove more heat in the summer) for each unit of energy that they use. So even though electricity costs more than natural gas, using a heat pump in your Ottawa home will bring you significant savings!



One of the main reasons that gas furnaces need to have annual maintenance done is to make sure that the home doesn’t experience a dangerous and potentially deadly carbon monoxide leak. Carbon monoxide is a by-product of the combustion process that gas furnaces use to generate heat in the home. Heat pumps don’t use this combustion process as they use electricity to pump heat into the home. Combining a heat pump and an electric furnace can ensure that you have a heating system that has no risk of leaking carbon monoxide, and is energy efficient.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a heat pump?2022-01-05T15:51:27-04:00

A heat pump is an electrically driven device that’s installed outside of your home and provides heating and cooling for your home. A heat pump is powered by electricity and transfers heat via refrigerant that provides comfortable temperatures in a home all year round. Heat pumps offer high efficiency for temperature control without the need for duct work. A heat pump system is often referred to as a “ductless” heating and cooling system.

What kind of maintenance is needed for heat pumps?2022-01-05T15:51:24-04:00

One of the major benefits of a heat pump is that they require little maintenance to operate efficiently and effectively. It’s important to keep indoor filters clean and they should be washed or vacuumed every couple of months. For the external portion of a heat pump system, they should be cleared of snow in the winter months to prevent any potential for malfunctions. Lastly, an annual coil clean should be performed by a certified technician. Contact us to learn more or to get a quote for a heat pump for your home!

How do I know what size of heat pump to buy for my home?2020-10-23T19:56:25-04:00

There are a number of variables to consider before deciding which size of heat pump is best for you. On top of the size of the space you are looking to heat/cool, it is important to know if the heat pump will be for a ducted system, a mini-split, how important cooling is, and whether you will need a variable speed compressor. That is a lot to figure out on your own, so we suggest you contact us today to speak with a certified HVAC professional. We can help you figure out exactly what you need.

How are heat pumps rated for efficiency?2020-10-23T19:55:50-04:00

Heat pump efficiency is commonly measured using the HSPF, or Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. The higher the HSPF, the more efficient a heat pump is. HSPF is a ratio of the total heat pump output over the entire season divided by the electricity it used during the time. If you want to know more about heat pump efficiency, contact us today.

What is the average lifespan of a heat pump?2020-10-23T19:55:15-04:00

How long your heat pump lasts depends on a few factors, such as the type of heat pump and how well it is maintained. On average, you can expect your heat pump to last 18 years. Regular maintenance of your heat pump will increase its lifespan, saving you money in the long run. If you believe a heat pump is the right option for you, contact us today.

What is the benefit of having a heat pump?2020-10-23T19:51:56-04:00

Because a heat pump only uses electricity for moving air rather than heating/cooling it, it is extremely efficient. When you use a heat pump along with a primary heating system such as oil, gas, or electric, you will see the heat pump offset the amount of primary fuel use. One heat pump can offset hundreds of litres of oil in a typical home over time, saving money and reducing your environmental impact.

How do heat pumps work? How are they different from furnaces?2020-10-23T19:50:42-04:00

Simply put, heat pumps extract heat from one place and transfer it to another. They circulate refrigerant through a cycle of evaporation and condensation. The main difference between heat pumps and furnaces is that furnaces create heat while heat pumps simply transfer it. When in heating mode, a heat pump absorbs energy from outside (even in cold temperatures) and transfers it inside. When in cooling mode, a heat pump acts as an air conditioner and absorbs heat from inside and releases it outside. Because they are not creating heat, heat pumps are super efficient.
