Heat Pumps are gaining steam: Bosch

Techstination feature for Thursday, May 11, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Heat pumps are gaining steam…now outselling gas furnaces in the U.S.    The technology can be used in a variety of ways but basically works by taking heat from the outside and bringing it in during colder months…and reversing that process during the summer.   Bosch, in Germany, has been among the innovators.   Product manager Jakub Kytka says it is efficient and is good for the environment and your wallet…

“And usually the ratio of the overall heating energy that you get out of the system compared to the electrical energy that you put in ..between 3.5 and 5 times more energy out of the appliance than you put in in terms of the electrical energy which you pay on your bill.”

And with new incentives from Washington and many states…demand for heat pumps continues to grow.
