What is a heat pump and why is it a suitable investment for you?
For starters, heat pumps essentially move hot air around to suit each season of operation. So, in the summer, a heat pump works to remove the hot air from your home and, in the winter, works to take whatever warm air is present outside and bring it into your home. Technically speaking, a heat pump is a mechanical compression cycle refrigeration system that can be used to either heat or cool a space.
It's likely that you have chosen a heat pump to cool and warm your home because a heat pump tends to be more energy-efficient and kinder to the environment. The only downside exists in colder climates, where a heat pump likely won€™t be able to perform the same duties as a furnace. So, in most cases, we recommend that only those living in milder or warmer invest in a heat pump versus in a system with an air conditioner and gas furnace.
Picking out the Perfect Heat Pump:
Though it is best to speak to a qualified HVAC technician when on the hunt for a heat pump, we can give you a rough estimate of the tonnage that you will need to cool or heat your space, keeping in mind that any space that is 1,000 square feet or less can simply benefit from a 1.5-ton heat pump:
1,000-1,250 square feet: 2 Tons
1,250-1,500 square feet: 2.5 Tons
1,500-1,750 square feet: 3 Tons
1,750-2,000 square feet: 3.5 Tons
2,000-2,500 square feet: 4 Tons
2,500-3,000 square feet: 5 Tons
