The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates, on average, space heating and air conditioning account for over half of an American household’s annual energy consumption as of 2015. Household-level decisions, including home and vehicle energy use, drive 40% of energy-related carbon emissions.
Many Americans can help reduce GreenHouse Gas (GHG) emissions while saving on operation costs and enjoying greater comfort control – when they choose to use an all-electric, all-climate heat pump, like those from Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US LLC (METUS), instead of an existing air conditioner or fuel-burning furnace.
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA), a new federal law, offers eligible Americans unprecedented opportunities to potentially save money on qualified heat pumps and home energy improvement projects with tax credits and rebates.
Mitsubishi Electric’s inverter-driven compressor technology was introduced 20 years ago, revolutionizing the heat pump. Now, these variable-capacity, all-climate heat pumps deliver reliable cold-climate performance, efficiency, and precise comfort control using a smartphone app. Mitsubishi Electric has continuously improved this technology, while METUS has educated utilities, local governments, public officials, non-profits, homeowners, and private sector collaborators on the environmental and economic advantages of all-climate heat pumps.
