As they always say, it is a wonderful thing to have a few choices when doing anything these days. And this came into play for me recently when I was online checking out numerous types of Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C units when I happened to see an article about this thing called a heat pump… I found it quite interesting and although it is called a heat pump, this HVAC component can give hot as well as freezing air, and a heat pump is generally installed in the ground, however this kind of HVAC installation is overpriced but is a whole ton of times more effective than an electrically powered heater. A heat pump absorbs and transfers heat from a source known as the heat pit. The heat pump uses a condenser, an evaporator as well as a compressor to accomplish what it does, but when heat is transferred over from the heat pit, the space it goes into is called a heat sink… So, basically, the heat pump transfers and moves around the hot air from a hot source, into a colder space. And, as mentioned before, the heat pump can totally reverse this process to give cool, air conditioned air. And though it is not by any means cheap to install like I was saying, using a heat pump will greatly reduce your monthly electric bill. All of us in my household are using heat pumps at our new home for the freezing weather coming up this winter. They work and task fairly well since our temperatures seldom go below 45 degrees. With regular financial planning, though, we all around here could be using a heat pump next year with ease and pride! God bless the heat pump!
