Let’s dive into some specifics about the Tempstar Heat Pump and all of the benefits of owning one:
A heat pump is a mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system that can be used to either heat or cool a controlled space. While functionally acting as an air conditioner, the main difference between an AC unit and a heat pump, is that the cooling process can be reversed to provide heating when needed. Air conditioners, heat pumps, and refrigerators all use a similar system to transfer heat energy. A compressor circulates refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat when it travels between the indoor and outdoor units.
A heat pump system, in temperate conditions, can serve as the only heating system in a controlled space; no need for a furnace; however, in extreme climates, all Tempstar heat pump models can be used in dual fuel systems in conjunction with a gas furnace. With settings that allow the heat pump to provide heat until a ‘switch point,’ both the heat pump and furnace work together to provide the correct amount of heat for a home.
Another great benefit of a heat pump system is the savings on energy costs. While some balk at the high purchase price and installment, their long term benefits on home-owners wallets are worth the investment. Because the pump only uses electricity for power rather than the physical generation of heat, it wins high efficiency ratings. Overall, a heat pump system will reduce your carbon footprint as they do not run on natural gas or fossil fuels.
Finally, Tempstar, a national well-known brand, manufacturers furnaces, air handlers, air purifiers, and heat pumps. They provide integrated performance and overall optimal efficiency due to the breadth of their industry expertise and manufacturing history. Warranties ranked among the best on the market and the ability to obtain parts also add to Tempstar’s positive aspects.
