Information & Tips

 

An ENERGY STAR certified ground source heat pump is a low-maintenance and environmentally friendly heating and cooling option for your home or business that’s over 45 percent more energy efficient than standard models. Because it’s mechanically simple and all its outdoor equipment is below ground where it’s protected from the weather, your maintenance costs are often lower than other heating and cooling systems.

    Ground source heat pump systems have three main parts: a closed loop, which circulates fluid through an underground field in vertical and/or horizontal trenches; single or multiple pumps, fans, and compressors that provide heating and cooling; and a distribution system, typically ductwork, that carries air throughout your home or business to maintain an even temperature.

    To pick the right heat pump for your home or business, consult with a qualified contractor that participates in the Energize CT Heat Pump Installer Network. If you find a system that meets our minimum efficiency criteria, claim your rebate once the installation is complete.

    Compare the annual cost and carbon emissions savings from investing in a new heating and cooling system. The Clean Heating & Cooling Calculator can help you see how much upgrading your system to a heat pump would reduce your carbon emissions – and what it would mean for your home’s budget.

    ENERGY STAR is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency, providing credible, unbiased information that you can rely on to make well-informed decisions. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ensures that each product that earns the ENERGY STAR label is independently certified to deliver efficiency, performance, and savings.

    How Ground Source Heat Pumps Work

    A ground source heat pump uses the earth’s constant temperature to provide efficient heating and cooling. In the winter, fluid circulating in underground pipes carries the earth’s heat to your home or business, and in the summer, the process is reversed so heat from your home or business is carried back to the earth to provide cooling.
