Air-to-air Heat Pump

Definition

A type of heat pump that pulls the heat out of the indoor air in the summer and redirects it outside, and in the winter pulls heat energy from the outside air and redirects it indoors.

Also known as

Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP)

Cost Considerations

Air-to-air heat pumps cost less to install than geothermal heat pumps, but they can cost more to run because air temperature varies widely, whereas ground temperature remains relatively constant. Air-to-air heat pumps cost around $1,000, compared with $3,000 for geothermal heat pumps.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
