If you currently have a house with no air conditioning but you don't think you want to pay to have a central air conditioning unit installed, there are different considerations you want to make. If you don't use the air conditioner that much, only when the temperatures are scorching hot, then that may not be the right appliance for you. A geothermal heat pump could be the best choice. Here are a few reasons why you want to talk with the heating professionals about this type of pump.
Is An All In One Appliance
A central air conditioner is a large investment to make when you only use the unit for a couple of months out of the year, which is why it isn't the best for your property if you don't need air conditioning often. The geothermal heat pump can be used to:
- Bring heat into the home
- Heat water if needed
- Pull warm air out of the space to cool air
This appliance can be used for heating, cooling, and to get hot water, so it's an all-in-one appliance for the home.
Remove Moisture from the Space
The geothermal heating pump keeps the space cool by pulling warmth and moisture out of the home. When you extract moisture out of the home, it doesn't feel as muggy when the temperatures are high and prevents condensation from becoming a problem and damaging the home structure and other materials.
Save Money with Heating Costs
Not only does the unit heat the space, but it also works more efficiently than your heater to do so. This means you can install the unit to use it primarily for your cooling needs, but it will also come in handy when you want to save money on heating costs and when you want to use it instead of having to run the furnace.
With a thermostat it's easy to control the temperature throughout the house, and the geothermal heating pump will be connected to the thermostat. You can chose to just run the heating pump when it's early fall or late spring and you don't want the furnace running, and you can decide to turn it on when the summer temperatures become unbearable and you want the moisture out of the space.
