I am no longer shy about publicizing the fact that my buddy and I rely on a geothermal heat pump for our heating and cooling comfort, and i think I was a bit hesitant to broadcast that fact because I wasn’t so sure just how well it would do in the Winter… Prior to replacing our outdated Heating plus A/C device with the geo heat pump, my buddy and I used a gas boiler for heating, and the gas boiler heating was definitely nice and I never felt chilly even on the coldest of mornings.
I also made sure that the household was sealed up narrow and I was getting the maximum efficiency from the gas heater; But everyone I knew that had a heat pump as their heating method, just didn’t like it, and we’re right on the cusp between having a heat pump for heating or having gas boiler do the task, our winter season can give some fiercely chilly temperatures but it’s not as bad as a bit further north.
So I was skeptical to say the least when it came to heating our property with the geothermal heat pump. Yet, my buddy and I were deadset on improving the efficiency and sustainability of our central air conditioner, my great friend and I wanted to pay far less when it came to the heating and cooling bills that have only gone up and up and up, and the geothermal checked all those boxes along with having the most longevity of any other Heating plus A/C equipment. So my buddy and I decided to go for it and I was a bit uneasy when winter season rolled around. But let me tell you, the radiant floor heating from the geo heat pump has been nothing short of amazing in comfort. And while I haven’t yet added all the final heating cost numbers, I suppose we’re saving close to 40 percent over that outdated gas heater.
