Electric heat pump is perfect solution


I easily love the year round weather in Tampa, FL, but from May through September, the conditions are warm and humid, with uneven temperatures climbing into the nineties.

From September until sometime in May, the weather is milder and a bit cooler, but the temperature seldom drops below fifty degrees; Having grown up in the northern part of the country, I care about sunny afternoons and balmy mornings! I am glad to never need to shovel snow, scrape ice or bundle up in layers of jackets.

Instead of a giant boiler and no need for air conditioning at all, my house in Tampa is outfitted with an electric heat pump. This all-in-one temperature control option is the ideal solution for a humid, subtropical climate. I like that the heat pump is environmentally responsible and keeps my utility costs reasonable, but rather than burn fossil fuels to create heat, the heat pump works by moving existing heat between the indoors and outdoors! During the warmer season, it operates exactly like a central air conditioning system. It uses refrigerant to transfer heat outside and create a cooling effect. The heat pump is especially beneficial for handling excess humidity, but when the weather cools off, the system reverses the flow of refrigerant. It takes fortune of ambient heat available in the outdoor air, compresses it to a higher temperature and pumps it indoors. Having a single system managing year round comfort reduces maintenance needs and saves on space… Because I invested into an Energy Star rated heat pump featuring flexible-speed technology, operation is charmingly energy efficient and affordable.
