Heat pump installation is a lot more work than it is worth to do in my opinion. After the fact, I am now wondering if our heat pump was more cash spent and more work put in due to it being a geothermal design. From the commercials on TV I discovered that Geothermal Heating and Air Conditioning units utilize the heat energy in the air quality. A standard heat pump plan has an indoor and outdoor system! While the indoor device sits in the house, the outdoor device remains in the grass. The geothermal heat pump outside device is concealed under the ground. It is not covered up by a few feet, more like hundreds of feet. I had to employ a supplier that specializes in gouging for heat pump systems. From what they say on the commercial, the outdoor device being underground is more logical. The heat pump puts to use heat energy, and it is used better under the ground. In the Wintertime, under the cold ground is more snug. That means further heat energy for me to look forward to use and better quality heating! In the Summertime, the outdoor air might seem to be warmer, but nevertheless, the ground under is quite colder than using that air. Because of that, you can have better air conditioning in the Summer and the benefits are supposed to be way better. It most definitely should be the ultimate Heating and A/C system on the planet. The geothermal heat pump by itself was very high-priced and the installation could have been much better. The digging and refilling process was ghastly. I had hired a Heating and A/C technician to merge the heat pump plan to my condo and thermostat. The whole approach took more time than expected and tons of cash. I am praying for some noticeable energy deductions, If I don’t, I am not going to be a happy customer!
