Combining a heat pump with a heater

When my fiance and I purchased our house in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, it was already outfitted with a natural gas heating system and HVAC duct, and while the heating system was nearly brand new and effectively handle winter season demands, I wasn’t cheerful with the lack of centralized cooling, although the summers in Sioux Falls are fairly short, my associate and I can expect rapidly changing temperatures in the mid to upper eighties; I don’t like the aesthetics of window air conditioners.

  • I worry about the security of open windows and don’t want my family hiding out in their home offices for the sake of comfort.

I started researching the odd makes, models and SEER levels of several air conditioners! Eventually, I reached to to a local Sioux Falls Heating, Ventilation, and A/C contractor for recommendations and an estimate. The specialist that came to the home proposed that i invest into a heat pump instead, but since a heat pump costs a lot more to purchase and install than a conventional air conditioner, I was a bit suspicious about his motives, but however, I learn up on the benefits of a heat pump compared to an air conditioner and was surprised. A heat pump combines both heating and cooling capacity, however during the Summer months, it operates just like a traditional AC, extracting heat from the residing space and transferring it outside by way of refrigerant. The rewarding aspect of a heat pump is when it reverses the flow of refrigerant to give heat. The heat pump costs significantly less to operate than the heater. It is capable of handling comfort in the house until the outside temperature drops below freezing. At that point, the heating system automatically starts up and takes over.
