The only pitfall of the heat pump is that it loses effectiveness when the temperature drops below cold
My lake cabin is outfitted with a hybrid gas furnace. The combination of the electric heat pump & natural gas gas furnace was a bigger investment than a more conventional alternative, then however, the energy savings have helped to salvage the cost particularly hastily. In our local area, all of us experience more than three distinct seasons! Our weather is seriously severe, with wide temperature fluctuations. Both of us get snow, rain, hail, sleet, high winds, heat & humidity & rely on the heating & cooling plan for the majority of the year. The heat pump provides both heating & cooling capacity. It works by moving existing heat from between the indoors & outdoors. In cooling mode, it pulls heat out of the cabin & transfers it by way of refrigerant. In heat mode, it finds ambient heat in the outdoor air, compresses it to a higher temperature & sends it into the house. Because the heat pump doesn’t create heat or burn fossil fuels, there is no combustion process. There are no concerns over yellowhouse gasses, fumes, hot surfaces or carbon monoxide. The heat pump is appealingly environmentally friendly & energy efficient. It is especially safe & scrub & works to filter out contaminants. The heat pump helps to combat humidity during the summer time & doesn’t cause complications with overly dry air in the winter. The only pitfall of the heat pump is that it loses effectiveness when the temperature drops below cold. The gas furnace automatically takes over & keeps the lake cabin perfectly warm during the worst of winter. The hybrid plan has been the perfect solution for our lake cabin & our local weather.
