While the weather of late may not seem like it, summer really is right around the corner. In just a few weeks, we’ll be cursing the heat & humidity of Ontario summers and seeking refuge inside our air-conditioned homes.

For some, it’s time to replace aging, unreliable air conditioning systems this year. If you’ve been considering installing a new air conditioner this season, we can certainly help you with that. However, we’d like to make you aware of a better option – a heat pump. While heat pumps have recently grown in popularity, Atel Air has been working with heat pumps since the 1970s. We know heat pumps!

Here are a few great reasons to consider a heat pump instead of an air conditioner:

The Technology – Heat pumps have come a long way! A heat pump acts as both a heating source and a cooling system, which means you’ll only need one unit. That’s only one unit taking up space, one to service & repair and only one to pay for. They work better too. A heat pump will make your home more comfortable and reduce humidity better than a basic air conditioning system. They are quieter and more efficient too. Modern heat pumps are also suitable for the cold winters experienced here in Eastern Ontario, keeping your home comfortable all year round.

Energy Efficiency – If you’re tired of skyrocketing electricity bills in the summer months, a heat pump may be the answer. A heat pump offers a much more energy-efficient solution. Rather than using a large amount of energy to produce cooling, heat pumps use energy to transfer existing heat. Heat pumps consume significantly less energy than an air conditioner to keep a space at the desired temperature, making them one of the most energy-efficient cooling solutions available. Because heat pumps today offer such incredible energy efficiency, you’ll not only save money but also take a step towards more sustainable living.

You’ll Save a Bundle – Sure, nobody likes having to pay for new HVAC equipment. It’s a big commitment, whether it’s a new AC system, furnace or a heat pump. But hear us out. A new heat pump can help you save money in a variety of ways:

  • An energy-efficient heat pump will use less energy, saving you money year after year in utility bills.
  • You’ll only need to pay for annual maintenance on one system, not two. The same goes for repairs.
  • Many new heat pumps qualify for up to $6,500 in government rebates.
  • Many new heat pumps have longer warranties than traditional air conditioning systems.
  • We offer special financing deals to help you make the switch to a heat pump.

Canadian winters are growing more challenging, while our summers are hotter than ever. As the climate changes, having an efficient home HVAC system is more important than ever. While air conditioners are a popular choice, there is a compelling reason why more and more people are choosing heat pumps instead. Heat pumps offer many benefits that air conditioners can’t compete with. All these features and advantages make the decision to buy a heat pump an easy one. For energy-efficient cooling and convenience, it simply makes more sense than relying on an air conditioner.

Heat pumps are more energy efficient and work all year round, providing heat during colder months and cooling during the summer. Contact Atel Air to learn more about how you can benefit from installing a heat pump today!
