NEEP ccASHP Product List


Welcome to the homepage for NEEP’s High Peformance Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) regional initiative. Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pumps (ccASHPs) and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems offer households and businesses a super-efficient clean energy solution to dramatically reduce the use of less efficient, carbon-intensive space heating systems while also offering efficient air conditioning. Smart controls bridge ASHP systems with other heating systems to maximize efficiency and occupant comfort while also enabling real-time demand response in thermally-efficient homes to support efficient, reliable grid operation. NEEP's regional initiative is focused on long term market transformation of these technologies. Guiding the Initiative's work are two NEEP reports: The Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Air-Source Heat Pump Market Strategies Report and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Market Strategies Report.



By 2030:




of Northeast homes use high performance ASHPs for heating. of Northeast homes are “energy smart” with at least two “energy smart” systems (HVAC, water heating, plug loads) of Northeast homes with high performance ASHPs are retrofitted to improve thermal efficiency performance.


More details on NEEP's 2021 work in this space can be found in the Project Brief Here.
