We in Baton Rouge are no strangers to summer after brutal summer. In addition, our winters can pretty cold, even if only for a few months. We at Central Works recommend using one HVAC unit to deal with both seasons: the heat pump. Below we will show you how to select a heat pump for Baton Rouge.<!—more—>
1. Why Get a Heat Pump?Many property owners often refer to their cooling system as their air conditioning. This can be for many reasons such as coming from a different part of the country, confusing a residential or commercial HVAC unit with the one on their car, or other. However, most properties in our area use a heat pump. This is because it can be used in place of an air conditioner and traditional heater in one easy and efficient unit. Heat pumps work by “pumping heat” out of the property in the summer and into it during the winter. Heat pumps are easier to install than two different units and are as or more energy efficient than the alternatives.
2. What Brand of Heat Pump Should I Get?Many manufacturers make top quality heat pumps. Be sure to do your research on heat pumps before making any sort of purchase. One of the first things you should look at is the square footage of the property along with how much power is needed to cool and heat it. It can be disastrous to select a heat pump for Baton Rouge that is too small or too large. You should also speak to experts in the area who know heat pumps and just aren’t out to “make a sale.” For example, we at Central Works have worked on and installed a variety of heat pumps and recommend:
- Beryant heat pumps.
- American Standard heat pumps.
- Mitsubishi heat pumps (traditional and ductless).
