Reasons To Consider A New Heat Pump
Efficiency, age, heat pump size, and refrigerant type all weigh in on the need to upgrade your heating and cooling system. Older heat pumps use refrigerant types that have been phased out by the government due to environmental concerns.
Your current heat pump may also be running at a less or lower efficiency rate, leading you to be noticing higher energy usage on your utility bills. Worse yet, all of that energy consumption may not even be doing a proper job of conditioning the air in your home. If you find yourself battling hot or cold spots and uneven temperatures, it may be time to be thinking about heat pump replacement.
Recently, there’s been a shift in the way some Americans view the usage of fossil fuels. If you are looking for a way to minimize your carbon footprint, and move toward the electrification of your home, a heat pump system might be something that could help you reach your energy usage goals by reducing or eliminating your usage of propane, oil, or natural gas.
If you currently live in an all-electric home, it’s important to invest in a heat pump paired with an electric furnace (otherwise known as an air handler) that will heat and cool your home at the most efficient level. In Cincinnati, Ohio, it’s expensive to heat with electric since electricity burns at a cooler temperature.
Trane heat pumps have a top SEER (or seasonal energy efficiency rating) of 20. This means if your 20-year-old, existing heat pump has been labeled a 10 SEER you could potentially double your efficiency with a new system.
A new heat pump that has been built to be energy efficient, amd paired with either a propane or oil furnace, can dramatically reduce the amount of fuel consumption needed to heat your home. After a certain temperature is reached, the heat pump will enter ‘lock out phase’, and the oil or propane furnace will provide backup heat. This is more efficient during colder temperatures. However, a new heat pump will give you the capability of not burning up all of your fuel on milder days.
For example: At zero degrees, the outdoor unit can only produce about 7 degrees of heat for your home. If your return air temperature is set to 70 degrees on your thermostat, and you’re using a heat pump only, you’ll only be adding 7 degrees of heat with a heat output of 77 degrees. This is not an efficient way to heat your home since in contrast, the average heat output of a natural gas furnace is about 120 degrees all the time.
However, let’s say the outdoor temperature is 50 degrees. The outdoor unit output would be 94 degrees; this scenario offers a better opportunity for adequately heating the home. It’s still not 120 degrees but it is a much warmer heat than the 77 degrees within the first scenario.
Efficiency has everything to do with how you control your set lock out temperature. At 30 degrees we typically lock out the heat pump, knowing that it’s not going to do a good enough job of heating the home.
The newer high efficiency heat pumps can put more heat in the home at lower temperatures. This is due to variable speed operation. It could give a homeowner the ability to run the heat pump down to 15 degrees rather than 30-40 degrees which will reduce the need to use backup heat (such as electric heat strips, oil, etc.).
A heat pump serves as an air conditioner in the cooling months since technology allows the system to reverse its refrigerant cycle. When acting as an air conditioner, multi-stage or two-stage heat pumps have the capacity to wring out more humidity from your home’s air by operating longer run times. This gives the indoor air more time spent running through the indoor evaporator coil, leading to more moisture removal from the air. Humidity removal is what makes your home feel cooler in the summer months. The cool air this technology provides will allow you to possibly keep your thermostat set a degree or two higher since the air in your home will feel more comfortable.
A new heat pump will not only help you save money on your heating and air conditioning costs through energy savings, but it will also provide you with the peace of mind that you won’t be facing another breakdown or repair. Trane has built its brand by manufacturing reliable and durable equipment. When you have a heat pump installed by Logan Services, you’ll also be working with a team that is well trained in the latest heat pump technology and local installation codes provided by your municipality.
Trane also offers a 10-year parts warranty on all heat pump systems. Higher efficiency heat pumps have two extra years on the compressor (12 years).
Last, reliability very much depends on how well a system is maintained. A system that receives seasonal maintenance is more likely to last longer than a heating system that gets neglected over time.
Clean air promotes better indoor air quality, and this is good for your health. Clean air is also a great way to prolong the life of your system. Before the air even reaches the indoor evaporator coil, it will flow through your air filter. With longer run times on two-stage or multi-stage heat pumps, the air filter will have a greater opportunity to trap and eliminate more dust that could enter the system and clog up your indoor coil.
By using a heat pump as both a cooling system and for heat, you also reduce your carbon footprint by burning fewer fossil fuels. That’s a great way to keep the air fresh and clean.
