When it’s time to replace your heat pump, there are a number of things you should weigh before making a decision on a particular replacement heat pump. With your home and your family’s needs in mind, CNR Air Conditioning Inc can help you select the heat pump that will keep your home comfy 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 might be a more efficient option; it will run only as needed to maintain your pre-set temperature. Because it’s not operating as often, a two-speed compressor will typically last longer and require fewer repairs than its standard compressor counterpart.
Whether you want to factor in a zoning system with your replacement heat pump is another thing to consider. You could save on your energy bills by more efficiently using your heat pump to condition the air in the areas you regularly use, rather than trying to keep all rooms at the same temperature. If you want additional information about zoning solutions for your house, CNR Air Conditioning Inc can help.
Another critical part of selecting the best heat pump for your home is ensuring it’s the correct size. If your heat pump is too large for your home’s comfort needs, it will waste a lot of energy endlessly 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 Naples days.
Last, but certainly not least, you need to consider your heat pump’s energy efficiency rating. Heat pump efficiency is determined by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). According to Consumer Reports, a higher SEER is more critical in warmer climates, but a higher HSPF is better 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.
