A ducted air-source heat pump is a highly efficient electric heating and cooling system. It uses traditional air ducts and room registers throughout a home to distribute warm or cool air. New systems are much more efficient than electric furnaces, electric baseboards, electric ceiling cable or electric wall cadets. To heat a home, they absorb heat from the outdoor air, then move the heated air into the home. During the summer, they dissipate heat from the home to the outdoors to cool the home.
