Why I got a heat pump for the remodeled addition to my home
When my spouse Alex and I first purchased this house, it was the perfect size for the several of us and our dog, while still having a small guest room and an upstairs office.
However, once Alex found out that both of us were expecting a baby, both of us realized that both of us wanted to add more area to our home. Alex decided to convert our garage to a modern master kitchen and washroom, so that both of us would have room for a huge walk-in closet, and “his and hers” sinks, everything went according to plan, and the remodel was looking prefer a success, but Alex had to make a decision on how to heat and cool the modern room. Extending the HVAC ductwork was going to be upscale and complicated, and both of us didn’t want to use ugly, inefficient window units, so both of us made the choice to go with a heat pump. A heat pump works the same as a traditional air conditioner, in the sense that it has as evaporator and a condenser, but unlike a more traditional air conditioner, the flow of coolant can be reversed, so that it can cool our room when it is super hot outside, and warm our room when it’s chilly outside. The upgrade was quick, and Alex only had to drill a small hole for all of the necessary components for our heat pump. Now that our child was born and both of us are living in our modern master kitchen, the heat pump has worked for us perfectly, whenever both of us need it, and since the heat pump is so efficient, both of us have saved hundreds of dollars on our energy bills each month.
