Central air conditioning is the norm throughout the country. They are often paired with a gas or electric furnace for year-round heating and cooling that utilizes an extensive network of supply and return ducts. Central AC works fine for many folks. But for those looking to save money during the summer, there are other ways of approaching your home comfort. Here are some reasons why a heat pump might be a better match for your Pikeville, KY home.
One of the chief benefits of owning and operating a heat pump, rather than a central air unit, is that you can get both heating and cooling within a single system. That means there are fewer components that could malfunction, and it's easier to keep in prime condition with regular maintenance. For many, the heat pump is just a simpler way to about home comfort.
The heat pump is renowned for its high-efficiency. Because it is both a heating and cooling system, every model has two different ratings: a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), which estimates cooling efficiency; and a HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor), which estimates heating efficiency. The systems are designed to give you, the homeowner, a means of estimating which models are more efficient. The higher the number, the better.
We also offer ductless heat pumps for installation, which are often recognized as the most highly energy efficient systems around. As its name suggests, a ductless heating and cooling system avoids the use of ductwork entirely to reduce thermal loss.
