I’m not at all taking the heat pump for granted any longer.
For the longest time, I just neighbor the heat pump with heating plus A/C cooling.
This comes with the territory when you live in a region like mine. Our summers can simply be brutal. It’s not enough that all of us spend numerous weeks straight with the temperatures hovering around a hundred. No, all of us also deal with an enormous amount of humidity as well. It’s love being super sizzling 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 plus A/C temperature control down to where I felt really 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 a/c. This is a definite fact. But do you ever notice that the cooling air also comes with a particular crispness to it? Yea, that’s simply the magic of heating plus A/C technology. The heat pump genuinely is an amazing combination of physics plus genius engineering. And essentially, the heating plus A/C technology for residential heating plus A/C has been the same since the 50’s. The cooling process starts with the heat pump actually moving heat energy out of the current home to make room for cooler air indoors. But it’s also automatically balancing the humidity level as a lot of moisture is exhausted outside in the process. And that’s why the air is so crisp inside when the a/c is on… Like I said, I will no longer be taking the heat pump for granted. Instead, I will simply be celebrating the heat pump for the amazing heating plus A/C technology it employs.
