If you are like many Central Florida residents, you don’t consider a home heating system essential for indoor comfort. Orlando can get chilly, but a few space heaters or a heat strip system are usually enough to fend off any chill. However, if your air conditioner is 10-15 years old and nearing the end of its current incarnation, you might want to consider how Florida heat pump installations give homeowners more for their money than air conditioner installations alone.
They Are Multi-functional
They will heat and cool your home. If you want high-powered cooling and heating, heat pumps provide all the chill you need when the temperature spikes and all the warmth you need when the temperate dips. You will be impressed with the advanced air filtration and humidity control technology.
They Are Energy Efficient
Space heaters and heat strips use a significant amount of energy. They can provide warmth, but if a cold front comes through Orlando for a few days, space heaters and heat strips will be used to their max capacity. A high-efficiency heat pump installation can transfer three times more heat energy than the electricity it consumes. Today’s heat pump systems are as energy efficient as most air conditioning units.
Their Ductless Models Deliver Zoned Heating and Cooling
Ductless systems, also known as mini-splits, can give you custom heating and cooling. These systems come with one outdoor unit and up to four indoor units, each with its own thermostat. You should heat and cool only the rooms you use, not the whole house. This is an excellent way to achieve the most comfortable temperature setting in specific rooms of your home.
