What People
Wonder About Heat Pump Installation

Facts About Air Source Heat Pumps

What is a ducted heat pump?

It’s a heat pump that uses a centralized ductwork system to condition the air. A heat pump provides both heating and cooling in one unit.

What is an air source heat pump?

An air source ducted heat pump is a type of heat pump system that uses an air handler or gas furnace to distribute conditioned air through the home’s ductwork. It’s similar to a traditional forced-air HVAC system but with the added efficiency of a heat pump.

Is an air source heat pump right for me?
If you have ductwork (usually paired with a furnace and central air conditioner), the heat pump for you will be likely the “air source” aka ducted heat pump. If you have no ductwork, ductless minisplits are likely your path.

Are heat pumps more expensive than central AC?

Heat pumps have a higher upfront cost compared to traditional HVAC systems. However, CO residents can take advantage of rebates and incentives like Denver CARE, Xcel Rebates, and Federal & State tax credits to offset the initial investment. Plus, heat pumps are energy-efficient, leading to significant savings on energy bills over time.

What are the benefits of air source heat pumps?

Air source heat pumps provide energy savings, operate more quietly, and deliver more even comfort throughout the home.

How expensive is air source heat pump installation?

With rebates and incentives, the cost is comparable to installing a traditional furnace and air conditioning system in Denver. In other adjacent cities, air source heat pumps are roughly 10-25% more expensive compared to a traditional furnace and air conditioning system.

heat pump installation costs

If you’re wondering how much heat pump installation cost, Denver Heat Pump installation cost can range from $8,200 to $22,500 on average, which can include the installation of an outdoor heatpump condenser, materials, labor & tax. 

Most Air Source Heat Pump units require a new or compatible furnace to function at high efficiency. We do not recommend installing an air-source heat pump on an old furnace; however, if your furnace is newer than 5-years old, it may be compatible with an airsource heat pump system.

What properties are best for air source heat pumps?

Homes with existing ductwork and forced-air heating systems are the easiest to retrofit with ducted air source heat pumps. The heat pump can connect directly to the existing HVAC system, simplifying the installation process.

If your home lacks ductwork, a ductless mini split heat pump system is likely the best option. Mini splits work similarly to air source heat pumps but are designed for homes without forced-air heating.

Combining a ducted air source heat pump with a solar array can maximize energy savings. The heat pump can use excess solar power, reducing grid electricity consumption and lowering energy costs.

However, even without solar, air source heat pumps are a smart choice for homeowners wanting to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and electrify their HVAC systems. Installing an air source heat pump is a positive step towards a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly home.

Standard vs Cold Climate Heat Pump

When choosing an air source heat pump for your home, you may encounter both standard and cold climate models. The main difference lies in their performance in lower temperatures.

Standard heat pumps work efficiently in milder climates but may struggle to maintain comfort and efficiency when temperatures drop below freezing. Cold climate heat pumps, on the other hand, are designed to operate effectively even in sub-zero temperatures.

If you live in an area with harsh winters, a cold climate heat pump is likely the better choice for your ducted air source heat pump installation. These models use advanced technology, such as variable-speed compressors and enhanced defrost cycles, to ensure reliable heating performance throughout the coldest months.

While cold climate heat pumps may have a slightly higher upfront cost, their improved efficiency and performance in lower temperatures can result in significant energy savings over time, making them a wise investment for homes in colder regions.

I want to keep a gas backup?

what does dual fuel air source heat pump mean?

A dual fuel air source heat pump, also known as a hybrid heat pump system, offers the flexibility to choose between electricity and natural gas for heating, depending on energy prices. This system combines an electric air source heat pump with a backup gas furnace, allowing you to take advantage of the most cost-effective fuel source at any given time.

When electricity prices are low, or during milder temperatures, the air source heat pump operates as the primary heating source. Heat pumps are highly efficient in transferring heat from the outdoor air to warm your home, providing energy-efficient operation and cost savings.

If natural gas prices become more favorable, or when outdoor temperatures drop below a certain threshold (typically around 30°F), the system can switch to the backup gas furnace. This ensures that you always have access to the most economical heating option while maintaining a comfortable home.

Some cold climate air source heat pump models are designed to handle even lower temperatures, potentially providing up to 80% of your heating needs. These advanced units can co-exist with your gas furnace, minimizing the need for gas heat and allowing you to rely more heavily on the efficient heat pump operation.

By installing a dual fuel air source heat pump system, you gain the flexibility to adapt to changing energy prices and weather conditions, ultimately leading to significant energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint.

Your Common ❓

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is a type of heating and cooling system that uses electricity to transfer heat from one location to another. Heat pumps work by using a refrigerant to absorb heat from the air or ground outside and transfer it inside to heat the home. In the summer, the process is reversed, and the heat pump removes heat from the inside of the home and releases it outside, cooling the home.

What is the downside to a heat pump?

Heat pumps have several benefits, but there are also some potential drawbacks to consider:

  1. Upfront cost: Heat pumps can be more expensive to purchase and install than other types of heating systems, especially if you need to make modifications to your home to accommodate the heat pump.

  2. Limited heating capacity: Heat pumps are generally less effective at heating homes in very cold climates, and they may struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature during extreme cold spells. Some heat pumps have a backup heating source, such as a gas furnace, to help overcome this limitation.


Is installing a heat pump worth it?

Installing a heat pump can be a good choice for homeowners who are looking to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint. Heat pumps are generally more energy efficient than other types of heating systems and can help to lower energy bills over the long term.

Heat pumps also have a number of other benefits, including:


  1. Quiet operation: Many air source heat pumps operate quieter compared to other types of forced-air systems.

  2. Versatility: Heat pumps can be used for both heating and cooling, making them a good all-in-one solution for many homes.

  3. Environmentally friendly: Heat pumps do not burn fossil fuels, which makes them a more environmentally friendly choice compared to other types of heating systems.

How long does it take to install a heatpump system?

In general, you can expect the installation of a airsource heatpump systems to take anywhere from a half-day to a full day or more.

Here are some of the factors that can impact the length of time it takes to install a heat pump system:


  • Complexity of the installation: If the installation requires extensive modifications to your home, such as adding ductwork or installing new electrical wiring, it will take longer to complete.


  • Accessibility: If the installation requires access to tight or hard-to-reach spaces, it will take longer to complete.


  • Experience of the installer: A skilled and experienced installer will generally be able to complete the installation more quickly than a less experienced one.
