I’m not at all taking the heat pump for granted any longer. For the longest time, I just used the heat pump with heating, ventilation, plus A/C cooling. This comes with the territory when you live in a region as extreme as mine. Our Summers can simply be brutal. It’s not enough that the two of us spend several months straight with the temperatures hovering around a hundred. No, the two of us also deal with an enormous amount of humidity as well. It’s about being super hot plus then having a warm, sticky, wet blanket thrown on top of you. This is Summer where I live. And I just tended to push the heating, ventilation, plus A/C control unit down to where I felt good. But what I didn’t realize was that there is a lot more to what the heat pump is doing in the Summer. Sure, it’s cooler inside thanks to the air conditioning. This is a serious fact. But do you ever notice that the cooling air also comes with a certain crispness to it? Yea, that’s the magic of heating, ventilation, plus A/C technology. The heat pump is an amazing combination of physics plus genius engineering in its use. And essentially, the heating, ventilation, plus A/C technology for residential heating, ventilation, plus A/C has been the same since the 50’s. The cooling process starts with the heat pump truly moving heat energy out of the house to make room for cooler air. But it’s also automatically balancing the humidity level as a lot of moisture is sleepy outside in the process. And that’s why the air is so crisp inside when the air conditioning is turned on, however like I said, I will no longer be taking the heat pump for granted. Instead, I will be celebrating the heat pump for the amazing heating, ventilation, plus A/C technology it employs.
