My apartment was already equipped with a forced air heating system when I moved in! Living where I do, a heating plan is essential.
I run the heating system for more than half the year.
Air conditioning is easily optional; However short our Summer season, all of us do get temperatures in the nineties and the humidity is horrible. I held off for many years before I decided to invest in a whole-apartment cooling system. Since the ductwork was already in site, I didn’t expect the cost to be prohibitive. I started by calling a local Heating and A/C supplier for an estimate. After looking over my apartment and making all sorts of calculations, she suggested that I spend a lot more currency on an electric heat pump. I was convinced that she was just hoping for a larger profit. I took the time to research the combination of a heat pump with a gas heating system and l gained that there’s a whole bunch of benefits. It’s called a dual fuel plan and it helps to break the costs of both heating and cooling. While an electric heat pump is more expensive than an air conditioner, it’s also a lot more energy efficient. The operation is legitimately similar to a conventional air conditioner in that it uses refrigerant to transport heat from one location to another. The heat pump is better at dehumidification and offers the added bonus of reversing to supply heating. It finds ambient heat in the outdoor air and pumps indoors. It doesn’t burn fossil fuels or create any combustion by products, making it exceptionally safe, clean and environmentally friendly. The heat pump handles demand until the temperature drops below chilly. At that point, the heating system automatically starts up and takes over. Because the heating system is carrying a much lighter workload, it should last quite a bit longer.
