EN Webinar: Micro Heat Pumps – Window, Portable and Saddleback

September 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Electrify Now

Micro heat pumps come in 3 configurations – Window units which look like window air conditioners, Portable units which are ducted to the outside through windows with vent kits, and Saddle Bag heat pumps that straddle the window ledge with part of the device inside and part outside which allows the window to close more fully. These units are lower cost than full home heat pumps and can be installed DIY by plugging into a 120V outlet. They provide energy efficient heating and cooling which can be ideal for apartments or single rooms in larger homes.

Saddle Bag Heat Pumps are an emerging technology that could be vitally important to help building and homeowners heat and cool rooms more cheaply with faster installation times and without completely retrofitting a heating system. Cold climate versions are expected to become available in 2024.

Join us as we dive into the world of micro heat pumps with our panel of experts. We will answer the following questions and more:

  • What are the options available and how do they compare?
  • What is a saddle bag heat pump and how are they different from window air conditioners?
  • What are the different models coming to market?
  • What are the ideal use cases for micro heat pumps?
  • What should you know before shopping for a micro heat pump?
  • What has research shown about the effectiveness and consumer satisfaction with micro heat pumps?
  • What are the costs of micro heat pumps and what rebates and incentives will help lower the cost?
