The main reason I believe anything at all about HVAC is because I became a homeowner.
If that hadn’t happened I would still be ignorant about HVAC and genuinely putting up with awful HVAC in some rental.
As a kid, all I knew about HVAC was that there was this massive, startling piece of equipment in the basement. That was a sizable oil fired furnace that was super extravagant to run. That’s why my dad installed a wood stove to supplement the furnace HVAC in the Winter season. I ended up getting a good lesson in how extravagant heating is. My dad and I split and stacked many cords of wood while I was living at my parents house. There was nothing but fans for the summer season but, where we lived the summer season heat always died down at night. In fact, our region just didn’t have too many heat pumps if any. I didn’t actually get to savor the HVAC heat pump until I moved south for my first job after college. Then, I owned a single once I got married and we bought our first home. The HVAC heat pump was brand modern on the home and is still getting it done many years later. The key to our HVAC needs has to do with keeping cool. This area doesn’t experience any kind of Winter season and cares about the ones that I once knew. So, it is perfect for a heat pump. The heat pump does a pretty great job of keeping the home nicely cooled throughout the worst the summer season can throw at us. And all it has to do to heat us when we need it is to reverse the refrigerant flow.
