Electric heat pump is perfect solution


It takes advantage of ambient heat available in the outdoor air, compresses it to a higher temperature and pumps it indoors

I absolutely love the year round weather in Tampa, Florida. From May through October, the conditions are hot and humid, with temperatures climbing into the nineties. From November until sometime in April, the weather is milder and a bit cooler. The temperature seldom drops below fifty degrees. Having grown up in the northern part of the country, I appreciate sunny days and balmy nights. I am delighted to never need to shovel snow, scrape ice or bundle up in layers of sweaters. Instead of a giant furnace 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. 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 conditioner. It uses refrigerant to transfer heat outside and create a cooling effect. The heat pump is especially beneficial for handling excess humidity. When the weather cools off, the system reverses the flow of refrigerant. It takes advantage 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 adaptable-speed technology, operation is wonderfully energy efficient and affordable.
