How To Choose The Right Heat Pump In Central Oregon
Heat Pumps – How To Choose The Right One
Choosing a heat pump for your home can be the most important choice for your home. Heat pumps have the potential to provide you with exceptional comfort in every season, influence your indoor air quality AND save you money. There are a number of things that we take into consideration when helping identify the right heat pump for your home.
- Do you have hot or cold spots in your home?
- Does anyone in the house have allergies?
- Where do you spend most of the time in your home?
- Would you like to save money on your utility bill?
- How long do you plan on living in your home?
These are just some of the questions we’ll ask to make sure we size your new heat pump properly. Sizing is extremely important. Consider that a unit that is too small will lack the ability to give you the comfort you desire. A unit that is too large will end up not only costing more money up front, but more money to operate. Over-sized heat pumps will kick out more heat and will most likely overshoot the thermostat by 2 degrees, making you too warm and costing you more money. Make sure you find the right contractor that will help you make the right choice.
What is efficiency? In brief, an efficiency rating tells you how much of the total energy used is delivered to the home as heat. The higher the efficiency, the better the furnace functions. For example, a furnace that is 80% efficient delivers 80% of the fuel consumed by the house as heat. The rest, 20% or 20 cents on the dollar, goes up the chimney flue. Your heating bill, therefore, depends on the cost of the fuel and the efficiency of the furnace.
