When you live in part of the country where the heat can be blazing for an entire quarter of the year, it can get to you if you let it! The only way to brave the situation is with a trusty Heating and A/C heat pump system. My Grandparents got by, somehow, with an evaporative cooler and just a few fans. I can remember that we never moved around a lot during the heat of the day in the summertime. There is just no way that I could deal with that now that I have become so accustomed to my awesome Heating and A/C and the current heat pump. My fiance and I decided back when we first obtained this house that all of us wouldn’t skimp on Heating and A/C. It was our intention to invest in an Heating and A/C unit not just get the cheapest one there was. So we did our research and were absolutely stunned by all the current technology that is going into the Heating and A/C units these days. The heat pump was the clear option for us since all of us don’t have much of a Winter most years. But, all of us absolutely need something that can deal with heat for more than half the year. Our heat pump is state of the art and it is so efficient that it was tough to believe at first. It has a SEER rating of over 21 which nearly tripled the efficiency value of our aged heat pump. The savings were astonishing after just the first full month. While I love the savings, I also am very thrilled with just how eco friendly the current heat pump is. It was designed with our planet in mind plus our comfort. I just could not be more satisfied with my new HVAC unit! .
