I stupidly bought a heat pump for my home… I learned online about how eco-friendly and efficient a heat pump system is… A heat pump is both heating and cooling in one system… You save a ton of money only getting HVAC service, repairs and tune ups on a single system. Then the heat pump also works way more efficiently than most HVAC units! Rather than create A/C and heating, the heat pump just uses the existing heat energy. It takes the hot air from either inside or outside and pumps it in or out. It all depends on if you want heating or cooling! Everybody online said that their heat pump paid for itself with 3 weeks of use. The people loved that the outdoor air quality is what the heat pump used. It made everything smell fresher and cleaner. The heat pump was so expensive to buy, yet I thought that it served both heating and air conditioner functions, so I splurged for it. I also was totally drinking the Kool-Aid. I figured I would see that a money back and I was making a smart investment. The heat pump is just not effective enough to produce heating for me. I live in a colder temperature, apparently heat pumps can’t handle that. There is literally no heat energy for it to pump! So I basically am using a tiny portable furnace in the dead of Wintertime. I am looking into adding a central heater furnace to the heat pump because it is that bad. Adding another heating element will cost a ton of money.
