Hybrid, a powerfully versatile idea.

You’ve probably heard of hybrid cars before, but what is hybrid heating? Put simply, hybrid heating is an approach to heating that allows a system to choose the source of energy used to heat a home, switching between the heat pump and furnace.

What is a heat-pump?

A heat pump is the next evolution in mainstream heating and cooling. They are known to be the most efficient and sustainable way to heat a home because they transfer more heat energy than they consume. In cooling mode, a heat pump acts similar to a standard air conditioner. In heating mode, rather than burn fossil fuels or using inefficient technology, a heat pump runs on electricity to efficiently extract heat from the air outside and move it inside.

Multi-Zone Comfort

With the Hybrid Heating and Cooling System, you have the option to heat and cool specific zones to their own unique comfort levels. We call this “Multi-Zone” heating and cooling, and you can create up to 8 different zones, each with their own unique temperature. The bedroom, your children’s playroom, the kitchen, and other areas can be set to be cooler, warmer, or even off entirely for greater efficiency. With our Multi-Zone system, you can have the best of everything – both central cooling and hybrid heating as well as individual room comfort.

Multi-Zone configuration

Hybrid systems consume less energy and produce less GHG emissions than gas furnaces alone.

It’s the right time to flip the switch.

Green initiatives like Canada’s 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan are right around the corner, making it the perfect time to switch to a more carbon-efficient electric heating and cooling system. Heat pumps do not produce any greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to our reduction goals.

A solution for any home

Our Hybrid Heating and Cooling System is designed to provide unparalleled levels of flexibility in home comfort. In addition to providing central heating and cooling, there is also the option of addressing hot and cold spots in your home, like that room over the garage that tends to get very hot in the summer.
