Between the initiative to move away from fossil fuels and the growing demand for high-performance, high-efficiency systems, heat pumps are quickly becoming the go-to for both residential and commercial systems. In an article from Plumbing & Mechanical Magazine, Ian McIver, product manager for Bosch, stated that "people are turning away from fossil fuels...and moving more toward heat pump systems simply because they are so much more efficient." Hydronic heat pumps, specifically, have begun to take the HVAC industry by storm as they start to replace traditional boiler systems.
Heating the home in winter is one of the biggest household expenses. According to the EPA, 42 percent of the energy we use at home is for heating. While energy costs have risen, the improved energy efficiency of today’s heating systems can offset those energy prices.

In the past couple of months we have had an increasing number of people who are calling us about adding central air conditioning, strictly as a benefit for resale of their homes. The majority of these calls are older homes with hydronic heating with either baseboards or radiators and no existing duct work. In most cases these people are looking for high velocity or Mitsubishi ductless splits systems which our company has come to specialize in. These systems use no duct work at all or use compact air handlers and small 2 inch duct work which can be installed in existing homes with little or no modification to the existing structure.
