Heat pumps have become an essential part of improving energy efficiency and renewable energy production.
Using heat pumps helps reduce energy costs and can even provide a cost-effective and sustainable solution to increase comfort and efficiency.
With the growing number of technologies and solutions available on the market, it is important to understand the different types of heat pumps available. Air source heat pumps like those from Kanartic are the most commonly used and offer the best value for money. They are powered by a heat pump and work by drawing in outside air and heating it to distribute it throughout the home. These pumps can be installed inside or outside the home and are perfect for areas with milder temperatures, except high-efficiency versions like those from Kanartic which operate down to -30C.
Water heat pumps are also very popular and are generally more efficient than air source heat pumps. They use a heat pump to extract heat from surface water or groundwater and can be installed indoors or outdoors. These pumps are perfect for areas with colder climates because they can operate at lower temperatures. More expensive to install and maintain than air pumps.
Floor heat pumps are another type of heat pump that is becoming more and more popular. They are powered by a heat pump and work by drawing heat from the ground and distributing it indoors. These pumps are generally more efficient than other types of heat pumps because they can operate at lower temperatures and are also quieter.
Hybrid heat pumps are a relatively new type of heat pump that combines several technologies. These pumps are powered by a heat pump and work by drawing in outdoor air, surface water or groundwater and heating it for distribution indoors. These pumps are highly efficient and offer a cost-effective solution for colder climate regions without renewable energy-based electricity. Absorption heat pumps are designed to operate using a refrigerant and a fuel, such as natural gas or propane, and are generally considered more efficient than other types of heat pumps but be careful with energy consumption.

In short, in Canada the least expensive solution happens to be the air-air heat pump, which makes Kanartic an innovator in the field with our “do-it-yourself” solutions. We contribute to the well-being of Canadians by providing them with affordable heating and cooling.
