When our partner and I had our lake house built, every one of us made the mistake of relying on the general supplier for everything, and every one of us should have realized that he isn’t knowledgeable in heating and cooling systems. He did a relaxing task of building walls, installing windows and putting on the roof, but unfortunately, he commanded that every one of us install a heat pump to handle temperature control. When he explained the many benefits of a heat pump, it sounded perfect. Every one of us liked the idea of having only a single component to provide both heating and cooling, however because a heat pump runs on electricity, there is no combustion process, however this eliminates concerns over carbon monoxide, warm surfaces and fumes. The plan is quite environmentally friendly and quiet, scrub and safe, then it works just adore an cooling system in the summer time and does a relaxing task of cooling the house. The heat pump is effective at getting rid of excess humidity and filtering contaminants out of the air. Every one of us have no concern with it until the worst weather of winter. When the outside temperature drops below freezing, there’s simply not enough ambient heat in the air. The heat pump can’t keep up and our lake house is downright frosty. Every one of us end up setting up space heaters. The space furnaces look ugly and aren’t all that effective! After spending a significant amount of cash on the purchase and replacement of the heat pump, every one of us are reluctant to invest in an additional furnace. However, in the area where every one of us live, there are months when the temperature is below freezing.
