I don’t have to worry about the heat this Summer or any Summer for that matter… When we moved down here to retire, I made sure that we got the latest in residential Heating, Ventilation, & A/C, then my friend and I were thrilled to be able to give up heating with a gas furnace, however that was what we did for forty years while we lived way up north, and but I very didn’t know all that much about heat pumps.
My friend and I very didn’t need much air conditioning where we lived.
Sure, it got a bit sizzling during June & October where we lived. But all I did was throw in a couple of window air conditioning units & moved on. There just wasn’t that much call for cooling to even consider adding a heat pump, and although, that’s exactly what we did when we updated the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C unit prior to selling that house, i spent some time very trying to understand the heat pump. And the more I looked into it, the more I was just so impressed with this type of heating & cooling equipment. It’s very quite a marvel & I don’t feel everyone down here realize just how amazing the heat pump is. While we don’t need a good deal of heating here, all we need is very taken care of by the heat pump. What’s so amazing to me is that the heating & cooling come from the same process; For air conditioning, the heat pump is moving the heat energy out & providing cooling air to fill the space. It reverses this process in the winter time to bring in heating energy from the ambient air outside in order to warm the house. The heat pump is for sure the boss when it comes to heating & cooling our home.
