ACHP vs. Typical Heat Pump
people find our product when they are looking to replace an older typical air
source heat pump. Why should you choose the All Climate Heat Pump over a
typical system? We’ll explain below.
pumps have become a dominant heating source in the Southern United States. They
have proven efficiencies that far surpass those of fossil fuel systems and,
unlike fossil fuel systems, heat pumps can provide both heating and cooling.
with the proven efficiencies of heat pumps, there are still some lingering
stereotypes about comfort in the home. We talk about each of these issues in
the sections below.
Low Delivery Air
One complaint that we hear regularly about typical air source heat pumps is
that the temperature of the air coming out of the ductwork feels cold. This is
because at certain outdoor temperatures, a typical air source heat pump doesn’t
have the capacity to provide enough heat output to keep the delivery air at a
temperature that feels warm.
patented Opti-Cycle™ Technology, the All Climate Heat
Pump is able to provide delivery air temperatures as high as 120°F without
degrading its efficiency. This is heat that you can feel, even at very cold
Back-up Heat Source
Since a typical heat pump cannot
effectively heat your home when temperatures are below 30°F, a secondary heat
source is required.
cases, this backup heat is in the form of electric resistance strips which are
expensive to use. This resistance heat is about 1/3 as efficient as the All
Climate Heat Pump and it can be very expensive to operate. In many cases, a
typical heat pump is turned off and the home is heated entirely
with the electric resistance source.
cases, the heat pump is married with a fossil fuel system to take over in
heating the home. These fossil fuel burning systems are not efficient and can
tie the owner to the volatile oil market.
Climate Heat Pump is specifically designed for heating. It does not require
these types of backup heat because it can maintain high heating capacity even
at low outdoor temperatures.
difference in low-temperature performance can be attributed directly to a large
difference in cost of operation. Heating your home with the All Climate Heat
Pump instead of a typical heat pump will lead to savings of up to 60%, right
from the start.
Outdoor Unit Noise
Many typical heat pumps have their
operating components open to the fan plenum of the outdoor unit and this makes
these components, including the compressors, clearly audible outside the unit.
In many cases, the noise from these outdoor units can be heard inside the home,
in the yard or even in a neighboring home.
taken extra steps with the All Climate Heat Pump to make sure that the units
are as quiet as possible. The main way that we achieve quiet operation is by
installing the compressors within an insulated enclosure inside the unit. This
means that they are not exposed to the outdoor air and the noise from these
compressors is significantly attenuated. Additionally, both compressors
are isolated from the heat pump structure, minimizing the amount of energy that
is transferred into the cabinet that could rattle and radiate out in the form
other main noise from a typical air source heat pump is the outdoor fan. Our
fan blade was specifically designed for efficient and quiet operation. We use a
swept wing type fan that minimizes the air turbulence that causes loud fan
noise while optimizing fan efficiency.
down, the All Climate Heat Pump can provide better performance with less hassle
and less noise than a typical heat pump.
