Even in Las Vegas, the winters can get cold. Even though it is rare that there is snow, it can still get pretty cold, especially with the wind. You want your home to be a place that is warm during this time. If you have a heat pump or are considering a heat pump you will want to get the most out of your purchase of a heat pump. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning will talk about a few ways that you can achieve this goal.
Choose the Right Heat Pump for Your Home
If you decide that you want to have a heat pump in your home you need to research to try to find the right one for you and your home. Talking to a professional and seeing what they recommend is a wise choice. Some companies may have a certain brand of heat pump that they like more than others. A smart way to go is to get an Energy Star model heat pump. These are energy efficient and will save you money on operating costs. It is important to know that for the pump to qualify as an energy star model it has to have a baseline rating of 8.2 HSPF (heating seasonal performance factor).
Proper Installation of Heat Pump
When it is time to install your heat pump it is best to hire a professional technician who knows how to install it. Location and installation are very important when it comes to optimal performance. There are some things that you want to know before you install it. You want to make sure that it is the correct size. You do not want it too big or too small. It needs to be the correct size for your home size. Even though Las Vegas is hot it can still have some cold winters. The best way to keep your home warm is to make sure you have good insulation throughout your home. This will also help keep your energy bills down.
How to Get the Most Out of Your Heat Pump in the Winter
With a heat pump, you want to take good care of it so that it will last a long time. With a heat pump, you don’t need to have it run all day if you are not home. You also don’t have to heat the whole house. If you are not using certain rooms, don’t heat the room, just keep the windows closed and curtain shut to help keep it warmer. Use that thermostat. A portable thermostat is great to help you adjust the temperatures when you leave, come home, or go to bed. The best thing you can do to help take good care of your heat pump is to schedule a regular maintenance check and change air filters. Making sure that your heat pump is taken care of by a professional will ensure that it will last longer and continue to warm your house up properly.
