I come from the South where the heat pump is basically king.
I didn’t assume many people who were not using a heat pump, it was just the smartest type of Heating and A/C to use in our area. The weather would get especially tepid in the Summer heat and those heat pumps truly kick butt when it comes to removing the heat from your home! When I moved to another section up north, I had to adjust myself a little bit. I asked an Heating and A/C professional if I could have a heat pump installed. He thought about it and then said I could go for a geo heat pump. I asked him what that was, and he explained that the geo heat pump would pull heating energy from underground pipes where the heat remains relatively stable throughout the year. In the Summer season, the heat would be pushed out underground as well. This was not something I had heard of before, but it sounded great. When I l acquired about the expensive cost, I was a little bit hesitant. It was explained to myself and others but that these geothermal Heating and A/C systems last a very long time with minimal maintenance. They are harshly energy efficient and even better than the heat pumps I was accustomed to! So I went for the replacement and now our heating and cooling bills are lower than ever. I care about the comfort in our home, and I guess I will be fine living in the North. Now I’m just going to have to invite friends and family to visit, and maybe they will want to transfer up here with me.
