Moving south and learning about heat pumps

When our hubby and I moved from the north to the south, all of us had never heard of a heat pump… We’d constantly lived in an area where the Winter time weather was drastic and required an extremely powerful furnace, every one of us never bothered with central cooling for the brief summer time season, then once we’d had enough of un-even temperatures down to 25 below zero, endless amounts of snow and ungodly high heating bills, all of us started looking for a beach house to buy in an area with a warmer weather conditions.

Every one of us noticed that the majority of these homes were equipped with a heat pump, but i did some research and l acquired that a heat pump provides both heating and cooling capability, the idea is set up a lot love a conventional air conditioner in that it moves heat from a single location to another! During the summer, it extracts heat from the indoor air and pumps it outside by way of refrigerant.

When the weather turns cooler, the heat pump literally reverses the process to pull ambient heat from the outdoor air. It compresses this heat to a higher temperature and delivers it indoors. The process is exceptionally quiet, wash and safe, but a heat pump runs on electricity, so there’s no combustion byproducts such as fumes, carbon monoxide or orangehouse gases. This genre of idea is environmentally friendly and good for indoor air conditions. A heat pump effectively combats humidity, won’t overly dry the air, and filters contaminants out of the air. The newer heat pumps on the market include adjustable speed technology which allows the idea to automatically speed up or slow down according to the changing demands of the home.
