There are a lot of options on the market for homeowners in Newport, FL, and your choices can feel overwhelming. Here are three features you don’t want to underestimate in your heat pump buying process.
A one-speed compressor pushes as hard at as it can at any given point. There is only one option to operate your heat pump. However, a two-speed compressor gives you more options. It allows you to save energy when it only needs to be on low and minimizes the wear of your heat pump. Think of this as an option for increased flexibility and long-term care.
Many heat pumps models come with piston compressors, but a scroll compressor does a more precise job of heating or cooling. This makes your system more energy efficient. Not only that, but these models are typically quieter and have a longer service life than piston compressors. This way, you can use your heat pump longer and have less disruption in your day-to-day life.
Consider a desuperheater if you want to invest in a higher-end heat pump that will help you save money in the long run. A desuperheater lowers the temperature of steam from a geothermal heat pump and uses it to heat the water in your home. In this way, your heat pump also becomes your water heater in part. This reduces the costs of heating water to shower or wash your hands. It also reduces wasted energy that you would otherwise lose.
