A heat pump is an ideal means of delivering warm temperatures to your Cincinnati home during a mild winter. If you are shopping for a new heat pump, there are certain considerations that you must take into account to get the best system.
Today, many heating systems on the market use advanced system technology that helps to improve home comfort, cut down on energy bills and prolong the life of your system. That being said, it is advisable to look for high-tech features in a heat pump before buying one. Here are some of the advanced heat pump features that you should consider:
- Dual-speed compressor: This feature helps in the reduction of wear and tear on your system. It runs slowly when the temperatures are moderate and runs at top speed when temperatures are more extreme. Consequently, it helps in cutting down electricity bills.
- Variable-speed motors: They are also referred to as electronically commutated motors. Their energy consumption is low when compared to the standard permanent split capacitor motor. ECMs run slowly and quietly. They automatically change speed based on the temperature needs of your house.
- Scroll compressor: This consists of two scrolls; one remains stationary while the other rotates around it. This mechanism helps to compress refrigerant into smaller areas. It helps in creating warm air in your house during the winter.
- Desuperheaters: This component helps in heating water more efficiently and effectively than your ordinary water heater by using waste heat in your home.
In comparison with a standard heat pump, an advanced heat pump is designed to help in cutting down the use of energy. Choosing the best heating system has tremendous benefits, and we can help you make the right decision.
