Heat pumps have come a long way in the past several years. Today’s models keep you more comfortable than ever without sacrificing energy efficiency. Whether you’re shopping for a replacement heat pump or researching the benefits of getting your heating and cooling from separate systems for your Simpsonville, SC home, prepare to be impressed.
For comparison purposes, heat pumps are labeled with a SEER, or seasonal energy efficiency ratio, to show their cooling efficiency. Base models are 14 SEER, and high-end heat pumps can achieve 20 SEER or better. Many value-minded buyers find that a 16-17 SEER model fits nicely within their budget and gives a good balance of purchase price versus energy efficiency. Replacing a 10- or 15-year-old heat pump or AC could cut your summer cooling bills by 20 percent or more.
Your home is more comfortable when the temperature stays consistent. Choose from heat pumps with two-stage compressors or variable-speed motors that allow your heating and cooling system to use less energy while maintaining your home at your desired temperature. As a bonus, these units also run quietly enough to fade into the background sounds of your home. Some buyers ask how well a heat pump works when it’s cold outside. New units are designed to pull warmth from the air even when the temperature outside drops, reducing your need for backup heat. When temperatures drop below freezing, many heat pumps have a heat strip that will provide backup heating.
A new heat pump comes with a comprehensive warranty for your peace of mind. With a Trane Comfort Specialist installation team, you can rest assured that the job has been done to the highest standards. With proper maintenance, your new system should make your home comfortable and inviting for many years to come.
