I told our dad that our hubby as well as I were looking into heat pumps for our Couples Retreat Shed, as well as she gave myself and others such a lecture! She thought that if every one of us got a heat pump, it would be totally useless where every one of us live. Well, a few years ago she would have been right, however now times are changed! Still, I understand where he’s coming from, so I just took a breath on the iPhone as well as let him get it all out of her system. The main point she kept getting back to was the splitting point for a lot of people with heat pumps five years ago–the operating temperature. Back then, a heat pump was only fantastic to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. After that, anything colder as well as it just wouldn’t work. Instead of bringing in nice sizzling air, it would bring in luke warm air. Fortunately, recent advances in Heating and Air Conditioning technology have made heat pumps far better than ever before, but not only can todays heat pumps derive energy from the water or the ground, plus the air, however they can do so in temperatures as low as 17 degrees! That’s incredible, especially considering the difference of 23 degrees just five years ago! Once I explained to our dad that the technology was so much more advanced as well as it would run just that low, she was relieved as well as totally supportive. He’s even going to give us some money towards the heat pumps as our Christmas gift this year. I can’t wait to have the Couples Retreat Shed totally heated, so I can write as well as she can read, without the teenagers screaming every five minutes.
