Heat Pumps for Edmonton and Calgary

Many homes in the Edmonton and Calgary areas can rely on air source heat pumps for heating or cooling year-round. With newer generation air-source heat pumps, cold-climate heat pumps, there have been dramatic improvements to Heat Pump performance in the colder temperatures of Canadian winters. This improved performance vs. conventional air-source heat pumps reduces the need for auxiliary heating sources.

Heat Pumps have the potential to revolutionize the heating and cooling industry in Alberta by providing a sustainable, energy-efficient, and cost-effective solution to both a home’s heating and cooling needs.
Air-source cold climate heat pumps are a type of air-source heat pump (ASHP) designed to operate efficiently in cold climates like Alberta. These type of cold climate Heat Pumps are engineered to extract heat from the air even at very low temperatures, down to even -20°C to -30°C or lower.

As Heat Pumps continue to gain traction, they are poised to become a critical tool in both Canada’s and Alberta’s pursuit of energy efficiency and climate-resilient development and NetZero.

When considering a heat pump, it’s important to choose a reputable brand with a track record of quality and reliability. Legacy Heating & Cooling cold climate Heat Pumps are all excellent options that are sure to provide homeowners with the comfort and energy savings they are looking for in the Edmonton and Calgary markets.

What are Heat Pumps

Heat Pumps are electrically driven heating and cooling devices that takes heat from a low temperature place and delivers it to a higher temperature place. In the winter, they absorb heat from the outside air and transfer it into the home to provide warmth. In the summer, they reverse the process, absorbing heat from the indoor air and transferring it outside to cool the home.

As such, a Heat Pump can handle both your home’s heating and cooling needs, plus help towards being NET-Zero Energy Ready. One of the main advantages of ASHPs is their energy efficiency. Therefore, they can provide up to 400% more energy than they consume. This makes them a cost-effective heating solution for many homeowners. Additionally, Air-Source Heat Pumps do not produce any harmful emissions, making them a more environmentally friendly option than traditional heating systems.

Cold Climate Heat Pump Benefits

Energy efficiency:

Air-Source Cold Climate Heat Pumps can deliver 2 to 4 times more heat energy than the electricity they consume. This makes them a highly efficient heating solution, especially when compared to traditional systems like furnaces, which can lose up to 30% of their heat through ducts and vents.

Environmental benefits:

By reducing the reliance on fossil fuels, Heat Pumps lower greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to a cleaner environment. This technology aligns with Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan, which aims to reduce emissions and develop a low-priced, investment-friendly energy market. The government of Canada provides Greener Home rebates on certain Heat Pumps and is working towards NetZero initiatives. 

Cost savings:

While the initial investment in an Air-Source Cold Climate Heat Pump may be slightly higher than a conventional heating system, the long-term savings can be significant. Homeowners and businesses can expect to recoup their investment through reduced energy bills, often within 5 to 10 years.


Heat Pumps can be used for both heating and cooling, eliminating the need for separate systems. This can lead to further energy savings and reduced maintenance costs.
