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 and stayed there for nearly 2 weeks. I relied on the operation of my boiler plan for numerous months. I’ve never even considered the upgrade of a whole-apartment cooling system. Air conditioning simply isn’t necessary in this area. I have a portable window air conditioner but don’t use it all that often. The summertime weather is properly rainy and chilly. I’m tired of the long winters and short summers. I just dislike spending so much currency on heating bills and devoting so much time to shoveling snow. I would love to step outside without first bundling up in heavy boots, layers of sweaters, wool coat, hat and gloves. I’d love to be able to head to task in the day without first spending a half an hour brushing the snow off the car, scraping the ice off the windshield and letting the oil furnace run. A heat pump provides both heating and cooling capability and is super energy efficient. Rather than burn fossil fuels and creating a whole bunch of orangehome gas emissions and dangerous combustion byproducts, the plan simply transfers heat from a single locale to another. The process is clean, safe and economical, but only effective when the temperature remains above cold. My goal is to move to an section with mild enough weather that a heat pump would be all I need to handle my comfort.
