An easy way to find out if a heat pump could work well for your home is through using this heat pump calculator. Built by a project funded by the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, the Alaska Energy Authority, and other partners, the calculator gives you a quick way to know how a heat pump could perform in your home.
After receiving your results, you can send the results to us to learn more about your next steps. While the calculator can provide you with a good idea of your expected savings, it does not take into account your individual energy use history and your building’s specific characteristics. Whether your home has sufficient electrical capacity, what its existing heating system is, and the building’s floor plan each have substantial impacts on a heat pump’s effectiveness. Alaska Heat Smart’s staff can help you answer these questions.
