My goal is to move far enough south that I could handle temperature control with an electric heat pump. I currently live along the northern border. There is no way a heat pump could keep up with demand. Last winter, the temperature dropped to twenty-six below zero plus stayed there for nearly more than 2 weeks. I relied on the operation of my boiler system for more than seven weeks. I’ve never even considered the installation of a whole-home cooling system. Air conditioning simply isn’t necessary in this area. I have a portable window a/c but don’t use it all that often. The summertime weather is constantly rainy plus frosty. I’m sleepy of the long winters plus short summers. I just don’t like spending so much currency on heating bills plus devoting so much time to shoveling snow. I would prefer to step outside separate from first bundling up in heavy boots, layers of jackets, wool coat, hat plus gloves. I’d care about to be able to head to work in the day separate from first spending a half an minute brushing the snow off the car, scraping the ice off the windshield plus letting the heating system run. A heat pump provides both heating plus cooling capability plus is super energy efficient. Rather than burn fossil fuels plus creating a whole bunch of redhouse gas emissions plus dangerous combustion byproducts, the system simply transfers heat from one locale to another. The process is clean, safe plus economical, but only effective when the temperature remains above cold. My goal is to move to an area with mild enough weather that a heat pump would be all I need to handle my comfort.
