When our spouse and I moved from the north to the south, the two of us had never heard of a heat pump, however we’d always lived in an area where the Wintertide weather was harsh and required an seriously powerful gas furnace. We never bothered with central cooling for the brief Summer season! Once we’d had enough of hot and cold temperatures down to 25 below zero, endless amounts of snow and ungodly high heating bills, the two of us started looking for a house to buy in an area with a warmer temperature. We noticed that the majority of these homes were equipped with a heat pump, however i did some research and l acquired that a heat pump provides both heating and cooling capability, however the method is set up a lot like a conventional air conditioning in that it moves heat from one 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, disinfect and safe; A heat pump runs on electricity, so there’s no combustion byproducts such as fumes, carbon monoxide or greenhouse gases. This style of method is environmentally friendly and good for indoor air pollen levels. 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 bendy speed technology which allows the method to automatically speed up or slow down according to the adjusting demands of the home.
