2 Reasons an Air Source Heat Pump Is a Good Choice for Your Home
When you live in Kinston, NC, you get to enjoy nice temperatures for most of the year. Winter can bring a lot of challenges with freezing temperatures and snow storms. When summer rolls around, you want to face the warmer temperatures without fighting to keep comfortable or seeing high energy bills. A heat pump is a great option for our area. It gets you through the harsh conditions of winter and summer and does a great job of getting you through the shoulder seasons.
Energy Efficient Systems
We carry Bryant systems with SEER ratings as high as 20.5 SEER. SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio reflects the cooling efficiency of your heat pump. It divides the cooling output for the cooling season by the amount of energy used in that period. A higher SEER indicates greater energy efficiency. Greater performance at lower levels of energy consumption makes a heat pump a perfect option.
Versatile HVAC Option
Heat pumps are great for cooling your home. However, you get more bang for your bucks because they also heat your home. A reversing valve changes the flow of refrigerant to deliver warm air indoors. They also provide heat efficiently. The aforementioned Bryant Evolution® Extreme Heat Pump also has an HSPF of 13. The Heating Seasonal Performance Factor is the ratio of heat output to electricity used over the average heating season.
When you find it difficult to heat and cool different rooms or areas in your home a heat pump can provide an excellent solution. Heat pumps can be incorporated with zoned systems, allowing you to install heating and cooling units exactly where you need them. Modern heat pumps are ideal for hot climates as well as areas where the temperature dips below freezing. Variable-speed operation makes them perfect for the shoulder seasons when temperatures tend to fluctuate regularly.
