So I was supposed to meet my friend yesterday, but she had to cancel early, because she was planning on having a heat pump installed. I thought this was an odd idea, and so I asked my friend about it. Just off that bat from what I knew, I thought getting a heat pump was a bad idea because we have really hot summers and I knew that heat pumps are more for mild climates. My friend didn’t seem that worried, and they also told me that they didn’t do much research into it. They figured that since it was a type of air conditioning system, it must be able to work well. I tried to tell them otherwise, but they wouldn’t listen. However, when summer came and visited their home, I noticed a HVAC van in their driveway. Apparently they were getting rid of the heat pump, and getting another central air conditioner installed. It was really hard for me not to say I told you so, but I resisted. While the HVAC specialist was working away at the HVAC installation, my friend complained about the heat pump while I just shook my head. Always do your research before buying anything, but especially for something expensive like heating and air conditioning. I thankfully won’t need to have my furnace system or A/C unit replaced for a long time, but when I do, I will be doing my research as well as getting professional HVAC advice from the local businesses around me.
