1. What Technology is Involved?
Heat pumps. Building electrification is an attractive alternative to fossil-powered appliances. Heat pumps are the enabling technology of widespread building electrification. Unlike conventional furnaces or boilers, which burn fuels to produce heat, heat pumps use electricity to send heat where it’s needed or remove it from where it’s not. Interestingly, heat pumps can either expel heat from the indoors during the cooling season or capture heat outdoors from the ground or air and draw it indoors in winter. This amazing technology offers a two-for-one benefit: heating and air-conditioning from the same equipment.
Moreover, heat pumps are much more efficient than the equipment they replace. Air-source heat pumps or heat pump water heaters are three to five times more energy-efficient than their natural-gas alternatives.
2. Do heat pumps work in extreme cold?
Yes, and the technology continues to improve each year. A common misconception people have about heat pumps is that they will fail in extreme cold. However, a recent Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) report found that cold-climate heat pumps can heat homes even when the outdoor temperature plunges to -12 degrees Fahrenheit.
Maine is so confident in the performance of cold-climate heat pumps that the state adopted a target to install 100,000 heat pumps in the next 3 years!

3. Is it more expensive to run a building on 100% electricity?
Full electrification is typically a cheaper option in new buildings. Builders avoid the cost of installing natural-gas lines and meters. Additionally, it improves energy efficiency which can keep rising electricity bills in check.
Research has found that in many cases building owners can reduce overall energy use, lower their energy bills and reduce emissions when they replace traditional fuel sources with electric heat pumps. This includes replacing oil and propane furnaces, boilers and water heaters.
