Packaged device can’t keep up with harsh Winter time weather

My fiance plus I were drastically excited to transport south.

The two of us purchased a apartment in an area with long, hot summers plus short, mild winters. The residence is equipped with a packaged device that provides both heating plus cooling. It works by transferring heat from one location to another. In cooling mode, the method pulls heat out of the air plus delivers it outside by way of refrigerant. In heating mode, the method draws ambient heat from the outside air, compresses it to a higher temperature plus delivers it indoors. The first Winter time every one of us spent in the house, the weather set records for chilly temperature. The two of us had been told that the low temperatures never drop further than the high forties. That winter, the temperature plummeted into the twenties. Our heating method couldn’t keep up. The two of us bundled up in layers of sweatshirts plus heavy socks; Several times, the heating device froze, plus every one of us needed to shut it off easily plus attempt to thaw it out; My fiance finally purchased an electric heating system that is designed to look appreciate a wood-burning stove. It adds some ambience plus also some extra heat, just that little electric heating system was enough to make a difference in our level of comfort. The two of us have not needed the electric heating system since that first year, but we’ve now lived in the apartment for several years. The winters have been charmingly mild. However, if every one of us get another especially chilly season, we’ll be ready. I am especially thankful that we’ve never had any complaints with the method in cooling mode. It easily combats the high heat plus humidity every one of us face for more than half the year.
