Heat Pumps: Cincinnati Ohio

Amana heat pumpsHeat pumps are an all-in-one cooling and heating system that offers an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. A simple explanation is that a heat pump can extract heat found in the air (or ground) outside your house and transfer that heat into your house instead. Under the right conditions, a heat pump can heat and cool a home for less than a gas or oil furnace.

Consider the following questions when considering a heat pump for your Cincinnati home:

  • Is a heat pump the best choice — or would you be better off buying a furnace and a central air conditioner based on the type of heat produced, the cost, the installation, etc.?
  • What size heat pump should you buy to deal with the coldest days of the year? Larger heat pumps cost more but have lower operating costs.
  • How efficient (SEER rating) should your heat pump be? The higher the SEER rating the more efficient the heat pump.
  • Which brands of heat pumps are considered best? The best heat pumps can retrieve energy from the air down to a temperature of -20° C.

The installation is more important than a new heat pumps’ energy rating. Heating and cooling equipment are part of a home comfort “system” tied into ductwork, piping, air cleaners and other parts of the home. Here at Apollo Home our installers are required to attend Apollo Home University, a comprehensive training program certified by the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) Association. This continuing HVAC training is required to keep up with all the changing technology.

So when buying new home comfort equipment, remember: you’re not just buying the equipment, you’re buying the company behind the equipment too.
