How to Cool a House with a Heat Pump

The term “heat pump” can be a little confusing given that heat pumps aren’t just for heating. These powerful systems provide heating and cooling in a single unit and can be used to keep your home comfortable year round. 

Trying to decide whether heat pump installation is the right move to keep your home cool this summer? Neeeco is here to help! In this post, we’ll explain how mini-split heat pumps work and how you can save up to $16,000 on mini-split heat pump installation with Mass Save® heat pump rebates.

How Do Heat Pumps Work in the Summer?

Air source heat pumps work by moving heat from one place to another. In the summer, they capture heat from the air inside your home and transfer it outside. This is the same process traditional air conditioners use, which is why air source heat pumps are often referred to as heat pump air conditioners. Unlike air conditioners, however, heat pumps can provide heating, too. In the winter, they extract heat from the outside air and bring it into your home. 

There are two different types of air-source heat pumps:

  • Ducted heat pumps, which connect to your home’s central duct system 
  • Mini-split heat pumps, which are ductless and can be installed anywhere in your home  

Because they are ductless, mini-split heat pumps are easier and more affordable to install than ducted heat pumps. A mini-split is ideal for targeting rooms that are difficult to heat and cool, like a finished basement, sunroom, or addition.
