It’s pretty cool to get all of our heating and cooling from just one source.
Since we’ve moved way down south, we no longer have a need for the gas furnace as part of the winter. Actually, there really isn’t much call for very much HVAC heating in this area. And when we do need a bit of the HVAC heating, the heat pump is more than capable of coming through for us. I wasn’t so sure what we were going to be getting into when it came to trusting both the heating and cooling to the heat pump. But it sure seemed like the vast majority of other homeowners were making the same bet. I honestly don’t think I’ve seen a different form of residential HVAC since I moved down here other than the heat pump. And obviously, it works well or it wouldn’t be quite so universal. Still, when we got that first cold snap, I wanted to find out just how warm the heat pump could be. And it only took a few minutes to realize that our HVAC heating needs were in good hands with the heat pump. Of course, the main output for the heat pump comes in the summer. It’s so much more hot and humid down here than I’ve ever experienced. Yet, the HVAC cooling provided by the heat pump does a stellar job of keeping us comfortable enough to manage the summer. I have to say that given what I know now, I would definitely trade a gas furnace for the heat pump again. That’s as long as it came with a move to warmer winters like the one I’m experiencing now.
