Heat Pump Air Conditioning Systems For Mild Climates

May 23, 2011 | Blog

One of the most economical ways to heat and cool your home is with a heat pump. The unit does not generate heat on its own so it does not require the electricity that other systems will burn up. While it might not be able to effectively warm a home in northern locations where it stays below freezing for several days in the winter, it works very well in southern and milder climates.

The weather in Corpus Christi, Texas is perfectly suited for the use of a heat pump. The average low in the coldest month of the year, January, is 46 degrees so heat pumps are very effective in the winter and operate just like a conventional air conditioning system in the summer. If you have electric heat now a switch to this type of HVAC system will result in significant savings on your electric bill, especially if you are upgrading from a system that is more than 10 years old.

A heat pump is basically an air conditioner that is capable of going both ways. In the summer, the pump takes the warm air out of your home and sends it outside but in the winter the process is reversed. Warm air is brought in through the outdoor condenser unit to heat your home. As long as the temperature outside is above 35 degrees, this process will normally provide all the warmth you need. For those rare times when it dips below freezing in Corpus Christi, a back-up heat source will kick in and provide the extra warmth necessary to keep your home comfortable.

The amount of money that can be saved on your utility bill will vary depending on the type of system you choose but the savings can be significant. If you would like to learn more about how a heat pump system can work for you, consult the skilled professionals at Mathews CCAC Air Conditioning.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
