I wish heat pumps weren’t so expensive.
I hate my current HVAC unit and want to change it out with a heat pump.
Look up the stats on these things, it is extremely impressive. Rather than create heated air, it simply uses it in the existing air. It takes fresh, clean outdoor air and pumps it inside for a heating effect in the winter. For the summertime the reverse happens. You get a constant stream of new air. That means no dirty indoor air conditions or smelly, stuffy air anymore. You also reduce your energy bills quite a bit with this method of heating and air conditioning. They say a heat pump pays back for itself in energy bill savings in under a year. That is good since the initial cost is supremely high. It is shocking when you price check a heat pump with a typical central HVAC unit. It is so much more money and if you want an even better heat pump, more of an installation job. Geothermal heat pumps are way better. They use an underground loop system to get that heat energy. Think about in the wintertime what is warmer, the air outside or the ground temperature. The same goes for cold air in the summertime. It makes sense to bury the unit. It is also neater and less of an eyesore. But now you are digging into the lawn and doing a more complicated HVAC installation job. It isn’t cheap to do this at all. Is a heat pump worth the cost? That is the question I come back to time and time again.
