Greener Homes Grant FAQ

An air source heat pump is a HVAC system that moves heat from the outdoors to the interior of your home. This heat is then distributed throughout the home by a fan located in an air handler or a gas furnace. Certain cold climate heat pumps qualify for the greener homes rebate due to their efficiency and reduction in carbon footprint.

A cold climate heat pump is a type of forced air heat pump that is built to produce heat in Northern climates. This technology has been around for decades and can effectively heat a home with exterior temperatures as low as -25 Celsius. It differs from standard heat pumps due to its ability to produce heat at these low temperatures. It is able to meet this requirement through increased surface area on coils and high end technology such as variable speed compressors and communicating electronic expansion valves.

The most common type of heating and cooling system that we are installing is a hybrid heat pump system. This system utilizes an air sourced heat pump outside that replaces a traditional air conditioner. This unit is paired with a natural gas furnace inside that provides a secondary heating source allowing customers to lower their utility bills in the winter and ensure complete indoor comfort levels. Other typical systems that we are installing in Ottawa include a ductless air source heat pump paired with either boiler or electrical systems best suited for clients without ductwork in place. AirZone is highly qualified HVAC contractor specializing in custom air source heat pump systems. Our team of comfort experts will clearly lay out the specific available options for your home that qualify for the greener homes heat pump rebate.

This is a complicated question to answer because it will be up to the homeowner to decide how efficiently the system will run. In the summer time the heat pump acts as one of the most efficient air conditioners on the market. We are seeing consumer energy savings up to 40 percent in Ottawa over the summer months. The best results from these heat pumps are in homes that have upgraded insulation, newer windows, and other energy efficiency improvements since they can adjust the electrical to gas tipping point to a more efficient setting. In the winter a typical customer will change from the heat pump to backup heat (furnace or electric backup) around -5 to -15 Celsius. This choice is left up to the homeowner to balance cost to run versus comfort levels and increased utility bills. To clarify, a heat pump in the winter is more efficient but can cost more than a natural gas furnace to heat a home. We have clients in Ottawa who are heating their homes solely with the heat pump at temperatures lower than -20 Celsius!

In an ideal world the system can replace a gas furnace completely. There are options that eliminate the gas furnace completely that utilize electric backup heat however we find that a typical consumer wants to balance cost, comfort, and environmental sensibilities. That being said natural gas prices continue to increase along with an ever inflating federal carbon tax which may bring operating costs for electric systems closer to natural gas systems in the near future.
