Save Energy, Reduce Heating Bills
Go Green with Air Source Heat Pumps
N.E.T.R., Inc is proud to have been selected as the air source heat pump provider for the Solarize Mass Plus program to help Needham residents save money on the upfront costs of embracing clean energy technology.
Through this program, you can move away from heating your home with unsustainable fossil fuels. Air source heat pumps are excellent when paired with solar energy! You can drastically reduce your energy consumption and overall carbon footprint, which saves you money and helps to save the planet.
Why Choose an Air Source Heat Pump?
Air Source Heat Pumps:
- Reduce energy consumption. Air source heat pumps transfer energy instead of generating it, which uses far less energy than other heating methods.
- Heat and cool. Heat pumps also function as an air conditioner by reversing the transfer process in the summer.
- Provide precise climate control. Lower the thermostat only in rooms that are not in use, reducing electricity consumption by 50%.

Air Source Heat Pump FAQ
Thinking about switching to more energy efficient heating? Wondering how air source heat pumps work? We answer your questions:
What is an air source heat pump?
An air source heat pump takes heat from the air outside your home and moves it inside. In the summer, the process gets reversed as the heat pump moves heat from the inside to the outside of your home.
How do air source heat pumps work?
The process relies on a compressor, copper coils, and refrigerant. It works very similar to the way a refrigerator does. As the refrigerant pulls heat from the outside, it becomes a high-pressure liquid. This moves through the system to the coils housed in the indoor air handling units. At that point, the refrigerant condenses into a low-pressure liquid, and as air passes over the warm coils and blows out of the unit, your home gets warm.
Why are air source heat pumps energy efficient?
Air source heat pumps are energy efficient because they move heat rather than generating it, which takes significantly less energy. Additionally, because these systems are ductless, you don’t lose heat through inefficient duct work.
How do air source heat pumps work with solar energy?
Air source heat pumps rely on electricity, and when you connect solar panels to your home, the system can use the energy generated by your solar panels. This drops your energy consumption drastically!
Do air source heat pumps cool too?
Yes! Air source heat pumps cool by simply reversing the process. When you need to heat your home, these systems move heat from the outside to the inside, but when you want to cool your home, they move heat in the opposite direction.
Are there rebates on air source heat pumps?
Rebates are available through Mass Save when you install air source heat pumps in new homes and when you augment or replace existing heating systems with heat pumps.
What should I look for in an air source heat pump provider?
When choosing a provider, look for a team with extensive experience with air source heat pumps. They can ensure that you choose the right size heat pump to meet your needs and guide you through the process of applying for rebates and special financing.
Are air source heat pumps available for businesses too?
Commercial properties can also benefit from installing air source heat pumps. Not only can a ductless system be designed for single family homes or even just additions, but they can also be configured to meet the heating and cooling needs of large multi-unit commercial buildings.
