When it’s time to replace your heat pump, there are many things you should consider before making a choice on a particular replacement heat pump. With your house and your family’s needs in mind, A2Z Air Inc can help you select the heat pump that will keep your home comfortable season after season.
Your heat pump could have a standard compressor or a two-speed compressor. With a standard compressor, the heat pump will work continually to keep your home’s air comfortable. A two-speed compressor can be a more efficient choice; it will run only as needed to sustain your pre-set temperature. Because it’s not running as often, a two-speed compressor will generally last longer and need fewer repairs than its standard compressor counterpart.
Whether you want to factor in a zoning system with your replacement heat pump is another consideration. You could save on your energy bills by more efficiently using your heat pump to condition the air in the areas you commonly use, rather than trying to keep the entire home at the same temperature. If you want additional information about zoning solutions for your house, A2Z Air Inc can help.
Another important part of picking the best heat pump for your home is confirming it’s the right size. If your heat pump is too large for your home’s comfort needs, it will waste a lot of energy continuously cycling on and off. If your heat pump is too small, it won’t have the ability to provide sufficient heat on the coldest or warmest Boynton Beach days.
Last, but certainly not least, you need to understand your heat pump’s energy efficiency rating. Heat pump efficiency is calculated by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). According to Consumer Reports, a higher SEER is more important in warmer climates, but a higher HSPF is ideal in colder climates. According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, you should consider buying a heat pump that is at least 15 SEER and 8.5 HSPF. For the most efficient heat pumps, look for 18 to 27.5 SEER and 8.5 to 12.5 HSPF.
As you can see, many factors come into play when looking for a replacement heat pump. But, you’re not in this alone.
