Dual Heating & Cooling
Unlike traditional heating and cooling systems that require separate units for each function, central heat pumps offer both heating and cooling capabilities in a single unit.
This dual functionality not only saves on installation and maintenance costs, but also provides greater convenience for homeowners.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Central heat pumps are high efficiency, low emission systems that utilize electricity to provide heating and cooling to your home.
Did you know that residential energy use is responsible for about 20% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the US (UC Davis, 2022)?
Switching to heat pumps can help you reduce your carbon footprint while improving comfort and efficiency in your home!
Plus, in support of Massachusetts’ goal to achieve Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, many municipalities also offer energy incentives when you make the switch to heat pumps!

What are central heat pumps?
Central Heat pumps are high-efficiency, low-emission systems that provide dual heating and cooling through ductwork in your home.
When designed and installed to fit your home, central heat pump systems can reduce your heating and cooling costs, improve comfort and create a positive impact on your indoor air quality.
I had a whole house heat pump installed in place of my old AC unit. Everyone that I dealt with at this company from the owner, to the office staff, along with the technicians were helpful, friendly, and professional at every interaction.
They have answered all my technical questions regarding this new type of system and have been proactive assisting me through the rebate process with MassSave.
I can’t speak highly enough about Jay Moody HVAC. I will definitely use them again in the future and recommend them to anyone needing this type of work.

What is the difference between central heat pumps and mini-split heat pumps?
The primary difference between central heat pump systems and mini-split heat pump systems is that central heat pumps utilize ducts to distribute air, while mini-splits do not.
Both systems operate efficiently and have the ability to offer heating and air conditioning to your home.
How do central heat pumps work?
Central air source heat pumps work by transferring heat between the indoor and outdoor air. They consist of two main components: an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. The outdoor unit contains a compressor and a heat exchanger, while the indoor unit contains an evaporator coil and a fan.
During the winter, the outdoor unit extracts heat from the outdoor air and transfers it inside the house through the indoor unit. The compressor compresses the refrigerant, which heats it up. The heated refrigerant then flows through the outdoor heat exchanger, where it releases its heat to the outdoor air. The refrigerant then flows to the indoor unit, where the evaporator coil absorbs the heat and releases it to the indoor air. The fan blows the warm air through the home’s ductwork, into the home.
During the summer, the process is reversed. The indoor unit extracts heat from the indoor air and transfers it outside through the outdoor unit. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the indoor air and carries it outside to the outdoor heat exchanger. The heat is then released to the outdoor air, and the cooled refrigerant returns to the indoor unit to absorb more heat.
Central air source heat pumps are an efficient and environmentally-friendly way to heat and cool homes!

Can heat pumps heat my home in the winter?
Yes! Contrary to popular belief, cold-climate heat pump systems CAN offer you efficient heating throughout the winter.
Is a central heat pump or mini-split heat pump system best for my home?
Before quoting any HVAC system, a Jay Moody HVAC engineer will come to your home to discuss what you are looking for in a system, to assess your home’s layout and to run a Manual J Calculation. From there, we can better recommend the best system for you!
That being said, here are a few questions that can help you choose the type of heat pump system that is best for your home.
- Does your system have existing ductwork? If your home has existing ductwork, a central heat pump system may be a more viable option for you, Likewise, if your home does not have existing ductwork, we recommend mini-split heat pumps for a more cost-effective and lower impact installation!
- Are you looking to heat/cool your whole home? If you are looking for a whole-home comfort solution and have existing ductwork, central heat pumps are likely the perfect solution for you! Alternatively, if you are looking to only heat/cool certain rooms in your home or don’t have ductwork, a mini-split system is likely better for your home.
- Are you looking to control the temperature of individual rooms in your home? If you are looking to control the temperature of individual rooms in your home, mini-split systems will likely be a better fit for your comfort needs.
- While central heat pumps tend to distribute warm/cool air to multiple rooms at one temperature , mini-splits allow you to adjust the temperature of each room’s unit.
