Air Source Heat Pumps Best Practices – From Retrofit to New Construction

Consumer interest in air source heat pumps (ASHPs) is growing rapidly, especially interest in the highly efficient variable capacity mini- and multi-split (“ductless”) systems. While sales are exponentially growing, there are still many misconceptions around this technology across the industry.

Consumer interest in air source heat pumps (ASHPs) is growing rapidly, especially interest in the highly efficient variable capacity mini- and multi-split (“ductless”) systems.
