Heat Pumps – An Energy-Efficient Alternative to Furnaces and Air Conditioners

Heat pump Auckland offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners in all climates. They use electricity to transfer heat from the air or ground, and push it indoors during the heating season.

Mitsubishi Electric ductless mini splits and ducted heat pumps can keep your home comfortable even during the cold North Shore winters.


Heat pumps are a cost-effective alternative to air conditioning and furnaces in most climates. They are powered by electricity, which is more affordable than the fuels used in furnaces and boilers. They absorb the heat from the air or ground and move it indoors during the winter, and they push the heat outdoors during the summer. This saves you money on energy bills, and it also helps reduce carbon emissions.

Air-to-air and geothermal heat pumps are most common, but there are other types of ductless heat pumps, including solar and wind-powered models. These systems are rated by their SEER and HSPF ratings, which measure how efficiently they cool or heat your home.

If you’re ready to make the switch to a high-efficiency heat pump, Cranney Home Services can help. We offer installation, price comparisons and maintenance for this innovative heating solution. And if you meet income requirements, you can tap into state-administered rebates that can cover up to $13,000 in combined costs.


Using electricity to heat and cool your home, a heat pump system saves you money without compromising comfort. Thanks to recent improvements in technology, these versatile systems cost less to run than they used to. In fact, you’ll save up to 50 percent on energy costs when you opt for a Mitsubishi Electric ducted heat pump.

While a heat pump is perfect for moderate climates, it does struggle on particularly cold days. To help overcome this problem, hybrid heat dual fuel systems combine it with a gas furnace to keep you warm without consuming nearly as much energy.

The result is crisp, clean air in the summer and gentle, welcoming warmth in winter.

Energy Efficiency

Heat pumps don’t use combustion to create heat, so they are more energy efficient than furnaces. They also run on electricity, which is cleaner than fuels like oil or propane. They can reduce your heating costs by 30% to 60%, depending on the temperature difference between your home and the air outside.

In fact, today’s air-source heat pumps can trim your electricity used for heating by as much as 50% compared to electric resistance heaters like furnaces. In addition, high-efficiency ductless heat pumps dehumidify more efficiently than standard central ACs, so they can save you even more energy in the summertime.

If you are ready to replace your furnace, consider Kearney HVAC’s ductless or ducted heat pump from Mitsubishi Electric. In fact, we can help you get up to $15,000 back through the Mass Save residential heat pump rebate and incentives program.

Environmentally Friendly

At a time when environmental responsibility is a top priority for homeowners, it is important to consider the energy efficiency and eco-friendly performance of any appliance that is purchased. Traditional gas and electrical systems require a lot of power to operate, which results in high electricity bills and increased carbon dioxide emissions. However, heat pumps are able to produce four times as much energy as they consume in electricity. This is because they use the same technology as refrigerators and air conditioners to transfer thermal energy from the surrounding environment.

Unlike boilers and furnaces, they do not burn any fossil fuels to generate heat. Instead, they recycle heat from the air and ground to keep homes warm during winter. Using the same refrigeration cycle, they can also reverse this process during summer to cool homes. This reduces the need to rely on traditional fossil fuel heating, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, it is important to note that heat pumps still rely on electricity to operate, which means they cannot be considered completely carbon neutral.
