When deciding, you need to think about the size of the area that your new unit is going to serve. A large house may struggle to properly warm its rooms if the heat pump isn’t big enough, while a smaller home may wind up wasting energy if the model is more robust than it needs to be.

The best way to make sure you have the right size is to call Dent. We'll send one of our local cooling and heating professionals to evaluate your home and take measurements for what size of heat pump will be needed. The experts at Dent Air Conditioning can determine what you’ll need based on the square footage your system needs to accommodate.

Different heat pumps to choose from

There’s more than one type of heat pump, and each one offers its own advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your home, you’ll want to choose from one of the following systems: split ductless, air source, or geothermal.

Split-ductless heat pumps are perfect for houses with additions or unbalanced heating, where some rooms receive less warmth than others.

The air-source variety is the most common, and improvements over the years have made these units better for air quality and efficiency.

The third option is not used as often as the alternatives because geothermal heat pumps have specific requirements for the condition of the soil. Geographic region and climate can play a big part in this type’s applicability.

Better energy-efficiency

Your new system should do an excellent job of conserving energy. This is both good for the environment and for your wallet. An efficient heat pump can significantly impact the amount you spend on utility costs.

Equipment should be Energy Star rated. Efficiency is measured in two metrics: SEER and HSPF; the latter is more important in climates that are typically cooler throughout the year. Consult the cooling specialists at Dent Air Conditioning if you’re unsure which efficiency grade is appropriate for your home.
