What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an energy efficient heating system that many of AP&T’s customers are installing in their homes, business, and community facilities. A heat pump works like an “air conditioner in reverse” – it uses a refrigeration cycle to extract heat from a cold space (outdoors) and move it indoors. Heat pumps use electricity to run a compressor and fan motors, but for every 1 unit of energy used to operate the system over the heating season, more than 3 units of heat energy are delivered into the home.

Why Make the Change?

  • Many of AP&T’s customers on Prince of Wales Island have been switching to heat pumps to obtain a variety of benefits:
  • Potential for cost-savings and more predictable pricing for home heating bills.
  • Increased energy efficiency, and use of cleaner renewable energy.
  • Eliminates the need for on-site fuel storage and delivery, and associated risks of spills, theft, etc.
  • More affordable maintenance.
  • Provides air conditioning in the summer.

How Much Money Will I Save?

That is a question which AP&T cannot easily answer, and which will differ for each consumer. How much money you will save depends on the age/efficiency of your old heating system, your home heating habits, the cost of fuel (which changes over time), the type and cost of your new system, and more.

Some of our customers have reported they are saving 25% to 50%, depending on the cost of oil. Others have indicated that as long as the cost of heating oil is over $2.00 / gallon, their heat pump is saving them money. However, AP&T strongly encourages our customers to do their own research and analysis based on their individual circumstances. This might include getting quotes from an installer, and examining your home energy bills and heating costs.
