North Shore municipalities team up with CleanBC

We’re working with the other North Shore municipalities and the Province’s CleanBC program to help homeowners make the switch to heat pumps for heating and cooling, and energy efficiency upgrades to their homes.

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an efficient heating and cooling system that uses electricity not to create heat, but to move it from one place to another. In the winter, a heat pump captures heat from the outside air and transfers it indoors through a cycle of compression and expansion of a refrigerant. In the summer, it operates in reverse and transfers heat from inside your home to the outdoors, like an air conditioner.

To find out if a heat pump is the right fit for your home, sign up for a free homeowner information webinar.
