Heat Pump Air Conditioning Systems: Are They Right For You?
It’s no secret that summers are blistering hot in the San Antonio area. It’s also no secret that cold weather here is pretty rare. You want to keep your family comfortable as the mercury rises and falls, and you may be looking into what your options are to do just that. Heat-pump air conditioning units may be the answer to keeping your home cool this summer and warm when the temperatures drop. This type of air conditioning is part of a heat-pump unit that delivers warm air in the winter and cool air in the summer.
In the winter, a heat-pump air conditioning unit passes the air over condenser units and draws out the heat from the outside air. This heated air is then sent into your home through the ducts and vents. Heat pump air conditioning units work like traditional air conditioners. Warm air is passed over the condenser units and the heat is drawn out, expelled out of the unit and then the cool air is sent into your home. One of the biggest advantages of a heat-pump air conditioning unit is the price of the unit and the cost of operation. This type of heating and cooling unit is relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain; your energy bills will be lower with a heat pump unit than for a traditional central heat and air unit.
A heat pump may be the right fit for your home. Since you will not be using the heating side of the unit much, you don’t need a large furnace. The Beyer Boys can answer your questions and help you decide if a heat pump is the right choice for your home.
