“Heat pumps have risen steadily in popularity for people in Maine. Often a device used primarily for its cooling capabilities in warmer climates, those in colder areas, like northern Maine, have warmed up to the idea of using heat pumps as a supplemental heat source in the winter.
According to the Efficiency Maine website, more than 25,000 high-efficiency ductless heat pumps have been installed in Maine homes and businesses over the past three years.”

It’s important to realize that heat pumps do not generate heat. Rather, they move heat around from one source to another. It is recommended that homeowners have another primary heating source as a backup just in case.
