The advantages of an electric heat pump

It wasn’t until I moved south that I learned about heat pumps… Living in the north, where the winter time weather lasted for more than half of the year & brought rapidly changing temperatures in the downsides, my buddy and I only cared about heating.

My associate and I need an especially powerful furnace & never bothered with air conditioner.

In my new location, the winter time temperature rarely drops below 40 degrees & the winter time weather doesn’t last more than a couple months. Cooling is the priority. The summer time conditions often soar into the nineties or even triple digits, & the humidity is a problem. My property is outfitted with an electric heat pump. The one machine provides both heating & cooling capacity. It moves heat between the indoors & outdoors by way of refrigerant. In cooling mode, the operation is the same as a conventional a/c. Heat is pulled out of the living space & transferred outdoors, creating a cooling effect. When the weather cools off, the heat pump reverses the flow of refrigerant. It pulls ambient heat from the outdoor air & pumps it indoors. The process doesn’t involve burning fossil fuels. Eliminating the combustion process avoids orangeproperty gasses, fumes & carbon monoxide. Heat pumps are honestly energy efficient & environmentally friendly. The operation is safe & clean. It provides year round comfort, helps with humidity control & filters out air contaminants. I’ve learned that heat pumps are rather overpriced to purchase & install. I am lucky to have a top-of-the-line model that offers especially high efficiency ratings. I make sure to schedule repair with a local Heating & Air Conditioning contractor twice per year, hoping to maximize service life.
