Heat Pump, Heater, Furnace Installation
When you are in need of a new heating system, you may wonder what type of equipment is the best option for your home. At Climate Design, we install both heat pump and gas furnace heating solutions for Florida residents. Our expert technicians will perform a free evaluation of your home and present you with the ideal home heating solution that fits your home’s needs.
Heat Pump Systems
In Florida, the most common type of home heating solution is the heat pump system because it operates on electricity and is ideal for moderate climates. The following information highlights the advantages to having a heat pump system as a Florida resident.
Efficiency. Electric heat pumps are very energy efficient. This is especially true in Florida’s moderate winter zones.
Installation cost. Heat pump system installations usually cost less than the installation of a furnace. Furnaces require an extensive ventilation system, which can increase the cost of installation if your home is not already fitted with a proper ventilation system.
Operating cost. In most of the Tampa Bay area, electricity rates are lower than natural gas, meaning that a heat pump system will cost less to operate than a gas-fired furnace.
Safety. With a heat pump system, there is no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning because it runs on electricity.
Cleanliness. With an indoor and outdoor unit associated with the electric heat pump system, you do not have to worry about the dust and soot that can be the product of the gas furnace system’s combustion.
Gas Furnace Systems
Gas furnace systems have been used for decades to warm homes in extreme climates, but due to Florida’s sub-tropical climate, these systems are not as popular as the heating pump systems. The following information includes some of the pros and cons of a gas furnace system.
Efficiency. Because a gas furnace system is built for extremely cold environments and uses gas, they are often less energy efficient than heat pump systems.
Installation Cost. Gas furnace systems require a good ventilation system in your home, so if your home is not already equipped with adequate ventilation it will need to be installed. This adds an extra upfront cost to your heating system’s installation.
Operating costs. Because gas furnaces run off of natural gas, they are often more expensive to run than the electric heat pump system.
Safety. A gas furnace is quite safe, but it is subject to all the risk associated with natural gas in a home, which includes possible leaks that could result in an explosion or fire.
Cleanliness. The products of gas combustion can result in dirtier air and less desirable indoor air quality in the home.
