Homeowners who want to install a heat pump in their zoned HVAC plan should beginning by contacting a qualified HVAC rep.
The heat pump will be used as the primary heating source, with the electric furnace and radiant furnace serving as backups.
The furnace can also be used to supplement the heat pump if desired. The heat pump is a critical part of the heating plan and if not installed properly can cause a fire or other complications, so it is best to not try to tackle this yourself unless you entirely suppose what you are doing. The HVAC rep will help determine the best localement for the heat pump and install it according to manufacturer’s directions. HVAC reps have been trained in this field and suppose the common type of heat pump for each different HVAC system. They will also make sure that the other components of the zoned HVAC plan are compatible with the heat pump and that the entire plan is respectfully balanced. It is not an self-explanatory job making everything work together perfectly however if you get the right pro to help you it can be an self-explanatory fix. Once the installation is complete, homeowners can care about efficient heating all Winter long. If you are a fireplace person then you don’t have to worry about heat pumps or any of this for that matter, the only thing you entirely need to do is find a source of wood and clean the fireplace on a correct basis. Also, remember to clean the flue of the chimney too. Good luck.
