A heat pump is a heating and cooling system all-in-one. It’s the perfect heating and cooling system for so many reasons: the fact that you only need to keep up with maintenance for a single system, their high efficiency ratings, long lifespans, and much more.
If you’re considering a heat pump for the first time, it may seem a bit overwhelming. Our experts are here to help with a quick guide to finding a heat pump that works for your space.
Did You Know? Ductless Heat Pumps Are Available
One thing to note if you’re someone who only has ductwork leading to certain rooms of the house—or has no ductwork whatsoever—is the availability of ductless systems. Ductless heat pumps move heat into and out of a home, just like conventional systems. They have an outside unit and individual blowers mounted high on walls throughout the house.
Sizing and Efficiency Go Hand in Hand
We always recommend that homeowners choose a high-efficiency heat pump. Heat pumps are already efficient because they move heat around, a more efficient process than heat production by standard means like combustion or electric resistance. But a higher efficiency still means bigger savings.
Check the SEER (seasonal energy efficiency rating) for cooling efficiency and the HSPF (heating seasonal performance factor) for heating efficiency.
You should also know that the efficiency rating means nothing if a heat pump is the wrong size for your home. If it is even only slightly undersized or undersized, it may have performance issues ranging from short cycling to complete system breakdowns.
Let a Qualified Technician Do the Work
Finally, make sure that you leave the work up to a qualified heating and cooling technician for your heat pump installation. You will ensure that the heat pump is the right size. And you will know that it is installed safely and securely. You get information on potential warranties and rebates, and you can get setup on a maintenance program to save money through the years.
