Getting a heat pump instead of an air conditioner

I held off on installing central air conditioner into my lake house for several years. I wasn’t convinced that I needed it; Living in the northeastern section of the country, it takes a long time for the snow to melt as well as the weather to warm up. The people I was with and I can’t even shut off the heating system until March at the earliest. There’s actually no hurry to start up an air conditioner. By the end of August, the beach house begins feeling warm as well as sticky. The warm as well as humid conditions usually only last for 2 to three months. A central air conditioner is a major investment to only use it for a brief time. I debated as well as finally consulted with an HVAC dealer. She recommended that I install a heat pump rather than an air conditioner. Although the heat pump was certainly more costly than the air conditioner, it gave more benefits. While an air conditioner only provides cooling, a heat pump both heats as well as cools. It works by moving existing heat from one location to another, then during our short Summer season, it pulls heat out of the beach house as well as pumps it outside, creating a cooling effect… Plus, the heat pump offers exceptional dehumidification. When the weather cools off, the heat pump literally reverses operation. It finds ambient heat in the outdoor air as well as transfers it inside. This process is especially safe, clean as well as environmentally friendly. It’s also way more energy efficiency than the gas gas furnace. Because of this, the heat pump costs less to operate. It handles our heating needs until the temperature drops below frigid. At that point, the gas furnace automatically takes over the heatload, but combining an electric heat pump with a gas gas furnace is known as a dual fuel system.
