Since the system does not have any ductwork, it can be used for zone control too
I want a heat pump so bad. The cost of a heat pump is the only thing holding me back. You get what you pay for though. Since a heat pump is totally awesome, I would have to pay out the butt for it. The heat pump has both heating and cooling functions. So it makes sense the cost of the actual system to be a lot. The HVAC installation is quite involved. The HVAC contractor has to create a vertical or horizontal loop system for the outdoor component. If I got a geothermal system, the guy would have to dig into my lawn for this. So I get it, HVAC installation for a heat pump is not easy so it will cost more. Due to these high initial prices, I can’t afford the heat pump. I want it terribly though. The energy savings are enough to make anyone want one. Rather than create heat energy, the heat pump finds it in the air quality and uses it. In the winter, heat energy outside or underground is pumped indoors. For summer cooling, the heat energy inside is pushed out to create a cooling effect. It saves so much energy and the air quality is way cleaner doing this. Since the system does not have any ductwork, it can be used for zone control too. Each room in the house can have a thermostat that determines the temperature for only that single space. This saves even more energy. Rooms that go unused or need less HVAC, don’t have to get it.
