chart 227x300 Does size matter for choosing a heat pump? The determination of heat pump’s size is key for the right selection of a heating system, along with considering several other factors such as energy efficiency rates and outdoor humidity. In other words, an adequately sized heat pump is inevitable to ensure the optimum comfort level of your building. For instance, if you install an oversized heat pump for heating your home, it may sometimes result in the wastage of energy and money, in addition to causing inappropriate dehumidification of your home. Similarly, an undersized heat pump will not be able to properly heat or cool your home and waste money by running more often than necessary.

It would be better to perform some leg work for choosing a right sized heat pump. As the first step, measure the length as well as width of all rooms in order to find the total square feet of your home. It is recommended to have a heat pump with 2 tons of service for every 1,000 square feet.  For example, if the estimate of your home is 3,000 square feet, then you will require a heat pump with 6 tons. Besides these, other factors such as the age of home, its insulation type, and climatic conditions must also be taken into account for choosing a heat pump with right size.

Since the purchase as well as installation of a heat pump requires huge amount of money, it will be a good choice to seek the assistance of a professional contractor for the selection of a suitable heat pump. An expert HVAC not only helps to choose an appropriately sized heat pump but also helps you to properly fix the system to ensure its efficient performance, comfort and above all, low maintenance.
