When our husband and I bought our first house together, it was already equipped with a duct plan and a rusty forced air gas furnace. The heating plan was relatively modern and effectively managed to handle the severe Wintertide weather. Although quite energy efficient, our initial weekly heating bills were still rather high. At that time, there was no particular means of air conditioner. For a couple of years, the two of us got by for a while with box fans and a portable air conditioner in the old master family room window. All of us eventually decided to invest in central cooling and we both hired a local Heating & A/C dealer for a recommendations. When he then recommended that the two of us add a heat pump, I figured he was just trying to go ahead and make some extra cash. Purchasing and installing an efficient electric heat pump was a far more extravagant project than a conventional central air conditioner. I then did some research and realized the distinct advantages of the heat pump. Partnering an electric heat pump outright with a gas gas furnace is called a dual fuel system, and saves a significantly large amount of cash on annual temperature control. During the summer, for instance, the heat pump serves as a cooling plan but is far more energy efficient than using one. Along with costing less to operate, the heat pump effectively handles all these loads of excess humidity and also uses a multi period filtration plan to professionally optimize air quality. When the weather cools off, the heat pump reverses it’s directional operation to supply heat. Rather than a combustion process to efficiently generate heat, the plan takes advantage of ambient heat in the outdoor air and then brings it inside. For me, the best part is that the heat pump costs far less to run than the gas furnace.
