With the amount of technological advances the HVAC industry has experienced in the last few decades, every Dunwoody, GA homeowner should have a system that perfectly suits their heating and cooling demands. Among the many HVAC systems available on the market, a variable speed heat pump is one of the best options.
What makes this HVAC system such an attractive option? Unlike a one-stage or a two-stage unit, a variable speed fan motor operates at varying speeds, which allows you to incrementally increase or decrease its output depending on your heating and cooling needs. Here are four of the biggest benefits of introducing this technology into your home.
Biggest Benefits of Installing a Variable Speed Heat Pump in Your Home
- Lower energy costs. Unlike a one-stage or two-stage system, there’s rarely a need to operate a variable speed motor at full capacity. In fact, you can usually operate the system at 50 percent capacity to reach your desired indoor temperature. As a result, you conserve more energy and save money without sacrificing comfort.
- Take more control. A one-stage system can only operate at full capacity, and a two-stage system offers one extra setting. Since you can incrementally increase or decrease the output capacity on a variable speed fan motor, you gain more temperature control over your home’s comfort environment. This helps save money, too.
- Improve the air you breathe. There’s no doubt the summers in Chamblee, Georgia, are hot and humid. To maximize your comfort at home, it’s important to keep your humidity between 30 and 50 percent. Since variable speed fan motors operate in longer cycles, they allow homeowners the ability to reach that optimal humidity range.
- Create a quieter home. Hearing a one-stage or two-stage system turn on and off all day can get annoying. They just aren’t the quietest of systems available on the market. On the other hand, a variable speed heat pump doesn’t cycle as frequently, so noise is never an issue.
