Save energy and money

If you heat with electricity, a heat pump can reduce the amount of energy you use for heating by as much as 30-40 percent. A ductless system can save even more: 25 to 50 percent on the heating portion of your electric bill. Heat pump water heaters can be two to three times more energy efficient than traditional water heaters.

Reduce your carbon footprint

With EWEB's nearly 90 percent renewable power, efficient heat pumps and heat pump water heaters powered by EWEB are cleaner, greener and cheaper than any other fuel option.
