Eco-Friendly Comfort in the Woods of Strafford

Recently, a customer approached East Coast HVAC hoping to find an affordable and energy efficient way to heat and cool their home in the woods of Strafford, New Hampshire. East Coast proposed an eco-friendly electric heat pump solution that will both save money and keep them comfortable year round. Here is their case study.

The Problem: Our Strafford, NH customer was looking for an energy efficient way to heat and cool their 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 1300 square foot home. Before the installation of the heat pump, the client had no way of cooling their home, other than window units.


How Do Heat Pumps Work?

Electric heat pumps transfer–rather than generate–heat, making them far more energy efficient than traditional heating systems like furnaces and baseboard heaters. A heat pump transfers warm air from the outside into your house in the winter, and transfers warm air outside in the summer, providing comfortable indoor temperatures year round. Heat pumps also dehumidify the air more effectively than standard air conditioners, meaning they use less energy to keep your home cool. In this way, heat pumps are good for the planet and your wallet.

The Solution: The client was recommended a heat pump unit with 3 indoor wall units; this consisted of a 30k BTU Hyper Heat outdoor unit, a 6k BTU indoor unit, and two 12k BTU indoor wall units. Client requested the outdoor heat pump be mounted to the foundation to avoid any flooding, falling, or damage from unexpected pests.

Why the Hyper Heat Pump?

Standard heat pumps struggle to heat your home when the outside temperature dips below 25 degrees–not uncommon for New Hampshire winters. The Hyper Heat System uses newer technology that allows the heat pump to keep your home warm and toasty when temperatures outside are as low as –13 degrees Fahrenheit! The Hyper Heat Pump eliminates the need for supplemental heating on even the coldest days, and is not affected by wind chill.

The Savings: After the installation of the heat pump, the client in Strafford was able to redeem a New Hampshire Saves Rebate of $592.00. And thanks to their new, highly efficient heat pump, over time the client will see significant savings on their electric bill. Find out about available rebates in New Hampshire.
