Posted November 27, 2023 By Gita Subramony

Momentum to consider heat pumps as a key solution for the decarbonization of the residential sector has grown to fever pitch. By electrifying space heating equipment, customers can avoid oil, propane, or natural gas as a heating fuel and leverage increasing renewable generation to meet home heating needs. However, ensuring heat pump technology can provide thermal comfort in the most severe cold conditions remains a challenge. Many industry experts expect dual fuel, hybrid, and backup systems to be part of the heat pump play. This presentation, presented at BECC 2023, will focus on the role of integrated controls in enabling residential customers to adopt heat pumps to replace or displace existing fossil fuel heating systems.
