With newer generation 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.

Importantly, 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.

What are Heat Pumps

Heat Pumps are devices that use electrical power to drive heating and cooling processes, extracting heat from a low-temperature location and transferring it to a higher-temperature one. 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:

In fact, Air-Source Cold Climate Heat Pumps can deliver 2 to 4 times more heat energy than the electricity they consume. Undoubtebly, 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: canada greener homes grant

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:

Despite the slightly higher initial investment compared to a conventional heating system, an Air-Source Cold Climate Heat Pump offers substantial long-term savings. Homeowners and businesses can expect to recoup their investment through reduced energy bills, often within 5 to 10 years.


Heat Pumps serve dual purposes, functioning for both heating and cooling, thereby eliminating the necessity for distinct systems. This integration can result in additional energy savings and decreased maintenance costs.
