Heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners in Canada due to their energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness. In general, air-source heat pumps cost between $6,000 and $15,000, including the appliance and installation. Specific quotes are based on home size, heating and cooling needs, and the type of heat pump you choose.
Geothermal vs. Air Source Heat Pumps
When it comes to heat pumps, there are two main types: geothermal and air-source. Geothermal heat pumps are more expensive to install, with costs ranging from $20,000 to $40,000 or more, but they are more efficient in extreme cold. On the other hand, air-source heat pumps are generally more affordable, with costs well below half the price of a geothermal system. These appliances can still provide significant energy savings compared to traditional heating and cooling systems and work well in most climates. Fortunately, both systems are eligible for grants and loans from the federal government.
