When my husband and I bought a new HVAC for our home, we really debated about getting a heat pump.
We had heard a lot of horror stories about heat pumps.
They told us that it gets too cold in our area to have a heat pump that would work efficiently. Someone else told us that a heat pump wouldn’t heat or cool our home efficiently because of the way it was laid out. I was told that they were also very noisy. I thought they were all crazy and I did my own research. I found out that they now make a heat pump that is made just for colder climates. There are several different types of heat pumps that are made for areas that need different air handlers. You have one or two condenser units that are outside and the air handlers that go inside. They were also made to be less noisy now and they didn’t even get as loud as a window air conditioner. I was determined that we were going to get a heat pump system, but it was my husband that was so unsure. He had to do his own research. After another week of going online and mulling it over, he soon decided that I may be right. He also thought a heat pump would be good for us. Having a heat pump for our heating and air conditioning needs has been one of the best decisions we have ever made.
