Air-Source Heat Pumps

With increasing concerns about climate change, moving away from a fossil fuel-based heating system was an important decision for James Michel in Hyde Park. Once his natural gas boiler needed replacement, James installed an air-source heat pump system for his home. Now James heats his entire 120-year-old Victorian home with an air-source heat pump system. The rebates he received from MassCEC’s Residential Air-Source Heat Pump Program helped to offset some of the cost of his new system. According to James, he wants to do his part to reduce climate change and fossil fuel usage.
