Interested in the GREENER HOME GRANT for heat pumps?

A heat pump also provides easy heating and cooling operation with more precise temperature control (when paired with an appropriate HVAC system). A heat pump is the perfect addition to a HVAC system that contains an oil, propane, or electric heater. These customers are the ones that benefit the most from a heat pump product.

 

AirZone HVAC Services installs virtually any type of heat pump system on the market. This includes geothermal, water source, condo packs and air source.  Our three most popular heat pump options for Ottawa homeowners are all of the air source variety, these units move heat from the outdoors to the indoor setting (even at temperatures of -25 and colder)!

Heat Pump Cost Ottawa

The average cold climate heat pump installation cost in Ottawa in 2022 is $6,000 – $10,000+HST. This price can vary drastically depending on a number of factors including home size, unit efficiency and installation parameters.

 

If you are aiming to receive the Greener Home Efficiency Grant you may need to replace your existing furnace/ air handler which increases the overall cost of the project. If you are looking to install ductless heat pumps you may be looking at as low as $3000+HST for a single zone standard heat pump. Other clients that are completely retrofitting the home with cold climate ductless heat pumps may be looking to spend $25,000 +.

The Three Most Common Heat Pump Types Installed In Ottawa

DUCTLESS HEAT PUMPS

These units can be utilized in homes that are equipped with ductwork or not. Enjoy perfect comfort with the added benefit of total customization. We can install indoor distribution heads in 1-8 rooms connecting to one outdoor heat pump!

 

These units allow for full zoning and you can control each room’s temperature completely independently. Don’t forget that these units operate as air conditioners and heaters, with some cold climate products producing heat down to -30C!

STANDARD DUCTED HEAT PUMPS

Standard heat pumps are units that look very similar to a traditional air conditioner. These devices replace your standard air conditioner and tie into your current furnace/air handler infrastructure(ductwork).

 

Most standard heat pumps produce heat down to about -15C, this means your air conditioner can now supplement your furnace in heating season to provide a environmentally friendly heating solution.

COLD CLIMATE HEAT PUMPS

Cold Climate heat pumps are similar to standard heat pumps in that they replace your air conditioner and also supplement your current furnace/air handler infrastructure (ductwork). The major difference between a standard heat pump and a cold climate heat pump is its ability to operate at very low temperatures.

 

We install units that can produce heat down to -30C, meaning much less run time on a gas furnace. This is the ultimate solution for those that are trying to do their part in curtailing global warming and slashing their carbon footprint.

Mitsubishi Hyper Heat - Heat Pump Ottawa

The Mitsubishi Hyper Heat

 

The Mitsubishi hyper heat is a versatile heating and cooling system that can be installed on nearly any home. With ductless options available that can produce heat down to -30C and the flexibility of 2-8 indoor heads, Mitsubishi hyper heat is a perennial favourite for Ottawa homeowners.

 

The full ducted options of the hyper heat allows for homeowners to completely switch to electric heat by installing a Mitsubishi air handler that ties into the current ductwork infrastructure. With 100% heating capacity at -15C and nearly 75% capacity at -25C, this unit is an ideal candidate for our harsh Ottawa Winters.

 

This unit also provides incredible efficiencies in air conditioning season and a whisper quiet operation that will make you the envy of the neighbourhood.

Bosch BOVA 2.0

 

The Bosch BOVA 2.0 is our most popular fully ducted heat pump. Bosch has managed to strike an incredible balance of efficiencies, technology and price point with this state of the art unit.

 

One of the only fully variable, cold climate heat pumps that can be installed with a Bosch gas furnace or air handler to receive full rebates but can also be installed with any existing furnace and not hamper its functionality.

 

If you are someone who has a relatively new furnace but wants the added benefit of a variable speed, cold climate heat pump, the versatility of the Bosch BOVA 2.0 will allow you to achieve this goal without replacing the furnace (something many other manufacturers cannot offer!).

Mitsubishi Standard Heat Pumps

 

Historically, one of our most popular heat pumps has been the standard Mitsubishi ductless units. These appliances operate at staggeringly high efficiencies in cooling mode, utilizing about half of the electricity of a standard air conditioner.

 

Combine this with the ability to produce heat down to -15C and you get an industry leading heat pump that will not break the bank.

 

Boasting some of the industries best warranties you can be sure that you will have reliable summer cooling and great supplemental heat in the winter. As an added benefit you can use these units to simply heat and cool that hard to reach bedroom, create a perfectly conditioned garage or design a full home solution that has independent thermostats in each room!

Heat Pumps do work well in Ottawa Ontario but there needs to be many considerations when your HVAC professional designs your system. Even the best cold climate heat pumps require some sort of back up heat for the frigid temperatures of mid winter.  That being said, the majority of the year, a high heat pump is an excellent choice to acclimate your home.

Heat pumps are worth the increased cost over air conditioners for numerous reasons. Especially if you heat your house with propane, oil or electricity! Supplementing your home heating with an ultra efficient heat pump is a great idea. Furthermore, these units are generally 1.5-2.0X more efficient in cooling mode than a standard air conditioner. Finally, they are environmentally friendly and help you reduce your carbon footprint. At AirZone HVAC we believe in environmentally sustainable technology and building a better future for our community.

Central heat pumps can heat your whole home for the majority of the year. Ductless heat pumps can achieve the same goal if designed properly. There are so many factors in a properly designed heat pump system that it is crucial to work with a professional.
