I told my dad that my hubby as well as I were looking into heat pumps for our Couples Retreat Shed, as well as he gave me such a lecture! He thought that if all of us got a heat pump, it would be totally useless where all of us live. Well, a few years ago he would have been right, however now times are changed, however still, I understand where he’s coming from, so I just took a breath on the PC as well as let him get it all out of his system. The main point he kept getting back to was the splitting point for a lot of people with heat pumps more than four 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 hot air. Fortunately, recent advances in Heating as well as A/C technology have made heat pumps far better than ever before, not only can this weeks heat pumps derive energy from the water or the ground, as well as 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 more than four years ago, and once I explained to my dad that the technology was so much more advanced as well as it would run just that low, he was relieved as well as totally supportive. He’s even going to supply us some currency 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 he can read, separate from the kids screaming every more than four thirds.
