None of years ago, I decided to add a central cooling plan to our home.
- I already had a furnace installed but was exhausted of struggling with the Summer heat plus humidity, then window A/Cs block the view from the window plus are a hassle to install in the Springtime plus remove at the end of the summer, then fans don’t work very well to supply a cool environment.
In our local area, we experience every style of weather extreme. Along with Summer temperatures in the high eighties, there are sub zero conditions in the winter. When I tied up a free quote from an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company, he recommended a heat pump rather than an A/C. Although a heat pump is quite a bit more luxurious than an A/C, it provides both heating plus cooling capacity, but combining a heat pump with a natural gas furnace is called a dual fuel system. In cooling mode, the heat pump operates similarly to a conventional A/C. The important fortune is that when the outdoor weather cools off, the plan switches over to heating mode. It works by pulling ambient heat out of the air plus transferring it indoors, however because there is no combustion process, there’s no complication with fumes, carbon monoxide or any greenhouse gasses. Heat pumps are appealingly clean, safe plus environmentally responsible. They are also especially energy efficient. It costs a lot less to operate the heat pump than the furnace. We can rely on the heat pump for the majority of the year. When the outdoor temperature drops below freezing, it struggles to manage demand. At that point, the furnace automatically starts up, takes over plus provides comfort.
