If you need a new air conditioning system, it may be difficult to decide whether a heat pump or a smart-system HVAC installation is best for you. Both heat pumps and HVAC units share energy-saving technology such as variable-speed compressors that operate at lower speeds most of the time but jump into high gear when extra cooling is needed. The result is lower utility bills, better humidity control and a more comfortable indoor environment.
High-Tech Heat Pumps
Instead of using energy to heat and cool like a standard HVAC unit does, heat pumps move heat from one place to another. During summer, heat is removed from the interior. During winter, the heat from outside is moved inside.
In temperate climates like Titus County, Texas, heat pumps work well for both heating and cooling almost year round. When temperatures dip toward freezing, heat pumps can become inefficient and alternative sources of heat may be needed. Dual-source heat pumps solve this problem by combining the energy efficiency of a heat pump with the heating power of a gas furnace all in one unit. Heat pumps operate until a pre-determined temperature threshold is reached. At that point, the furnace automatically begins. The result is ultimate efficiency without loss of comfort.
Smart HVAC Systems
Traditional HVAC systems heat and cool an entire house to one temperature. Smart systems provide conditioned air to zones that are controlled independently. In smart systems, a control panel regulates temperature, humidity, air quality, air flow and ventilation in each zone. Bryant’s Evolution System offers remote access through the Internet or telephone and notifies the dealer about maintenance or needed repairs. Smart systems can save up to 20 percent on heating air conditioning costs over a year.
