A heat pump is a big investment

When the weather warms up, the heat pump reverses the process, drawing heat out of the home to create a cooling effect.

I live in an section that demands just about year round temperature control. The Springtime and Summer seasons are both extremely warm and humid. The fall and Wintertide temperature never falls below chilly, but the chill absolutely requires heating. Trying to maintain a comfortable home can be a large drain on the budget. When I started shopping for a heating and cooling system for our modern home, energy efficiency was our main focus. I hoped to find a type of Heating and Air Conditioning system that would keep running costs low and minimize our carbon footprint. I looked into forced air gas furnaces and central cooling systems and high velocity Heating and Air Conditioning and ductless options. Despite the higher purchase and replacement price, I eventually settled on an electric, air-source heat pump. The heat pump was rather extravagant, but it combines heating and cooling capacity into a single unit, however plus, this type of system trims costs all year round. During the winter, the heat pump finds ambient heat in the outdoor air and transfers it inside. It doesn’t burn fossil fuels to generate heat, making it certainly environmentally responsible. There’s no greenbeach house gases, fumes or carbon monoxide to worry about. When the weather warms up, the heat pump reverses the process, drawing heat out of the home to create a cooling effect. It acts just enjoy an a/c but is more energy efficient and better at combating humidity. The heat pump features variable-speed operation, allowing it to adjust capacity anywhere between 40 and 100%. The longer running times at lower speeds achieve lower sound levels, more consistent temperature and amazing energy efficiency levels.
