A few months ago when looking for information on heating and air conditioning options for the home I came across two distinct types of heat pump. Heat pump and forced air both are extremely popular, but they are not the same. In this article we will compare them and see which is right for your home. It is best to get a few price quotes and compare the features to ensure you end up with the best choice. There are also a few things to consider if trading up.
Heat Pumps & Air Conditioning Units
Heat Pumps or Air Conditioning Units are central air conditioning units that use liquid-based (usually) refrigerant to provide cool air in a hot area. The units run by electricity and are a good choice if your house is not located in a very warm part of the country. They are available in both stand alone and installed units. The Central Illinois area has a lot of mild winters and because of this they are one of the most popular heating options for homes in this area of the country. They are also very economical.
Similar heat pumps
Forced Air Heaters or Portable Heaters are similar to heat pumps. They use a refrigerant to provide heat to an outdoor area. The forced air heating capacity is what determines how much heat is produced and how long the unit will last. Because they operate by burning fuel, central air conditioning in this region can be expensive.
So, what have I learned from my research?
First of all you must evaluate your situation and decide what you need. Do you want a central air conditioning unit, a portable unit, or both? Also, are you interested in saving a little originality by choosing a company who offers something no one else does?
If you are ready to get started, then it is time to contact someone with some knowledge about Heating and Air Conditioning systems. Perhaps you should start by penning down your questions so you can have an answer ready when you speak to someone in person. This will give you a chance to get some fresh ideas on which type of system will work best for your needs. It also gives you a chance to share some of your unique original thoughts with the consultant.
Now it is time to share the new information you have about forced air vs. heat pump prices. I took note of some things that made the price difference between these two systems seem very insignificant in comparison. One of those things is the overall size of the system. Even though the components of each system are the same, the bigger size of the system generally translates into a better performance.
The other thing that made the difference in price for the two systems was the BTU output. If you look at the prices of the two systems side by side, you will see that the difference in output is really just negligible when you compare them side by side. However, if you compare the BTU’s of the two products, you will find out that the Central Illinois Heating and Air Conditioning system have a higher BTU output than the Heating and Air Conditioning system from Lowrance HDS. This is the first real test that we can use to determine which one is really like the others.
The trick that I used in determining the answer to which is the better trading system was simply by carrying out a very simple test. I downloaded the operating systems on both the machines and compared their results using this simple test. In this test, I actually performed three different tests, all from the same exact settings, all with identical new information. I then carried out a mathematical calculation to determine the value of each one of the results. Once I had the data, all three tests showed exactly the same results, meaning that it was just a simple calculation of each machine’s advantages and disadvantages.
