Choosing a heat pump instead of an air conditioning system

When my husband as well as I purchased our home, the home was already equipped with a furnace as well as HVAC duct.

In our local area, heating is definitely a priority.

We need to turn up the control equipment as well as rely on heating from early October until the end of March. We experience temperatures down to downside twenty degrees, brutal wind chill as well as record-breaking snow accumulation. While the summers tend to be short, my good friend and I can expect high heat as well as humidity. For a couple of years, my good friend and I struggled with window air conditioning systems in the kitchens as well as box fans in the rest of the house. We weren’t glad with the level of comfort or aesthetics of the portable equipment. We decided to invest into centralized cooling. Initially, my good friend and I planned to purchase a conventional air conditioning system to pair with the furnace. However, once I started researching the odd makes, models as well as features, I came across electric heat pumps. I learned that this type of system operates identically to a central air conditioning system in cooling mode, however the equipment pulls heat out of the home as well as transfers it outside by way of refrigerant. The benefit of a heat pump is that it can reverse the flow of refrigerant to supply heating. While a heat pump costs more to purchase as well as install than an air conditioning system, it offers lower energy costs, and plus, the heat pump can supplement the furnace. When the outside temperature cools off, my good friend and I can use the heat pump to keep our home sizzling as well as minimize our expenses. The heat pump effectively handles comfort until conditions drop below frosty, but at that point, the furnace automatically starts up as well as fulfills demand.
