High efficiency heat pumps - often called Cold Climate heat pumps are a key technology in helping individuals and communities move towards rapid electrification and decarbonization no matter where they are located. Because they are designed to maximize heating efficiency, they are able to keep houses warm in cold climates where temperatures fall well below zero.

Our panelists from two of the leading heat pump suppliers, Mitsubishi and Daikin, will share the latest research and updates on cold climate heat pumps. We will also hear from Efficiency Maine who has been installing heat pumps in one of the coldest states in the US for years. We will answer questions such as;
- What is a cold-climate heat pump and how is it different from other heat pumps?
- What are the outside temperatures that these systems will operate in?
- What are good applications for this technology and where are they not required?
- How much more do these systems cost?
- Are there special building requirements for them to work?
- What do studies from Maine say about cold climate heat pumps?
- What should buyers consider before buying one?
- What incentives are available for cold climate heat pumps?
