Heat Pump Installation
by Nashville’s MJ Frick Co.
Heating in Nashville is important. Installing a heat pump will make a big difference where it counts – your bank account. The monthly amount you pay for cooling and heating your business or home can be seriously reduced when you install a heat pump. Why? Because the heat pump replaces not only the furnace but also the air conditioning unit. Yes, it is more expensive to install than a conventional system, but in the long run, it will save you a significant amount of money in energy expenses.
Heat Pump Installation Factors to Consider
Size of Your Home: The main factor determining the cost of your heat pump is how large your house is. The size pump you need is calculated based on the square feet of home space. Of course, the bigger your heat pump, the bigger the expense. But don’t try to cut expenses by installing a smaller pump. The cost savings in buying a smaller pump will be offset by inefficiency and higher operating costs to generate the same amount of energy.
Kinds of Heat Pumps: There are two principal kinds of heat pumps.
1. Geothermal Heat Pump
2. Air-source Heat Pump
What’s the Difference?
The Geothermal Heat Pump takes heat from the earth, while the Air-source Heat Pump takes heat from the outside air.
The Geothermal pump costs more to install, but maintenance is usually less than the air-source pump. This is because they’re placed underground, thus protecting them from the weather. When you compare the cost of installation to your overall savings in maintenance and energy bills, the geothermal is the winner. It pays for itself twice as quickly as the air-source pump. Air-source pumps, however, are more effective in cold to mild weather.
Installation Expense: The installation expense is greater for the geothermal than the air-source because it must be installed underground. Issues like excavation will impact the cost of installation. Be sure to have a professional HVAC company with many years of experience and know-how handle this installation.
