Houston’s warm climate and mild winters make it a perfect candidate for heat pumps. These HVAC systems specialize in transporting warm air wherever it is needed – outside in the summer and inside in the winter. Let Terry’s A/C and Heating help you choose a heat pump unit that will last for years to come, maximizing your home’s overall energy efficiency. Most Carrier heat pumps are ENERGY STAR-rated and their top rated heat pump is rated 20.5 SEER (air conditioning) and 13 HSPF (heating).
Having an air conditioner and heater all-in-one system comes with a higher price point, though the savings from energy efficiency can make it a good buy. As with other systems, heat pumps can be installed as a split unit (an indoor and outdoor unit), as an all-in-one package unit, or in a ductless mini-split system. Though less common in our area, we also install geothermal heat pumps which take advantage of mother nature to boost a system’s efficiency even more.
Heat Pumps consist of the following parts:
- Outdoor heat pump (which releases heat in the summer and releases cool air in the winter)
- Indoor air handler (which dehumidifies the air and circulates cool or warm air as the thermostat indicates)
Depending on your heating needs, heat pumps can be paired with a furnace to add supplemental heat during cold snaps (which in our area do not typically last long).
