Heat Pump System:
An environmentally conscious option

In Canada, heat pumps provide year-round comfort by handling all of your home's heating and cooling needs. You can save energy and reduce your carbon footprint while improving indoor comfort with a ductless heat pump system.

Suitable for use in a variety of applications, a heat pump system is a good option for new constructions or retrofitting existing homes with heating and cooling systems. A heat pump is also a viable alternative when replacing an air conditioner, since the cost difference between a cooling-only unit and a heat pump is often quite small. A heat pump can be a good option for your home, but given the variety of different systems available, it is often not easy to decide.

What is a heat pump...and how does it work?

Heat Pump SystemCompared with furnaces and air conditioners, heat pumps offer a more energy-efficient alternative in climates that require moderate heating and cooling. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps move heat from one place to another. Heat pumps move heat instead of generating heat, making them an efficient means of cooling and heating homes and buildings for less than a quarter of the price of conventional heating and cooling systems.

The three kinds of heat pumps are air-to-air, water-source, and geothermal. Heat is collected from the air, water, or ground outside your home and concentrated for indoors use.

The technical stuff

By extracting energy from a source, the temperature of the source drops. When the home is used as the source, thermal energy will be removed, cooling the space, and vice versa when the house is acting as a sink. As a result of its fully reversible nature, heat pumps can heat and cool your home all year long.

Heat pumps extract heat from low thermal places (sources) and deliver it to higher thermal places (sinks). In the winter, heat is lost from inside the building to the outside as a result of natural flow from places with high temperature to places with low temperature. Heat pumps use additional electrical energy to counteract the natural flow of heat and transfer heat from a colder place to a warmer one. 

Reduce your carbon footprint

With a heating system from TBS, you can stay warm and comfortable while reducing your carbon footprint and energy costs throughout Toronto's brutal winters. With our ductless heat pumps, you'll get both the energy savings and sustainability that you need while also elevating your indoor comfort level.

Regardless of your current heating system, ductless heat pumps bring incredible benefits to your home that you can enjoy for the whole year. The system is mounted on an outside wall, eliminating the ineffectiveness of ducted systems. Consequently, your carbon footprint is minimized, your energy bills are lower, and your comfort is improved.

Ductless heating and cooling systems

A ductless unit has one unit outside and additional units in the rooms you want to heat or cool. Some of the benefits are:

  • Savings on utility bills - It is much cheaper running a ductless system. ‘Normal’ systems lose thermal energy, resulting in higher bills. One of the benefits of a ductless system is that it's cheap to run. A ductless system does not have that problem, as it only heats and cools the rooms you want to use. You don't have to worry about losing air through your vents.
  • Maximum energy efficiency with minimal waste. Environmentally conscious people will love this option.
  • Fewer moving parts and greater efficiency than normal ‘traditional’ systems.
