When my spouse, Dave, and I built our home, we relied heavily on the ideas of the building supplier. We should have either completed a lot more research ourselves, or brought professionals in the heating fields. Unfortunately the building supplier just had general knowledge of plumbing, wiring & heating/cooling. We took her recommendation while investing in an electric heat pump to manage our year round temperature needs. The general supplier told us that the heat pump should effectively & efficiently mitigate the local weather. This is definitely not the case. The heat pump is absolutely underwhelming while I was in the Summer months. It operates so much like a central cooling system, extracting heat from the air while pumping it inside through the use of refrigerant. The device is extremely quiet and energy efficient, while it successfully reduces humidity levels. During the cooler months of the Autumn, the heat pump is able to provide comfort. The device undoubtedly reverses itself to find ambient heat in the outside air and then convey it into the home. This process was exceptionally energy efficient, plus keeps our heating costs very low. We get into a problem when the outside temps drop below freezing. At that point, there is no acceptable ambient heat available and the heat pump can’t maintain It won’t matter how high all of us set the thermostat or how much the heat pump struggles, our home is completely chilly. Since the heat pump keeps running non stop, it costs us a ton in our heating bills. We’re not gleeful spending a fortune on heat plus then bundling up in coats to keep warm.
