Are Heat Pumps A Good Choice for Niceville Homes and Businesses?

Though Florida is known for its mild temperatures year-round, you may sometimes need heating for your Niceville, FL home or business in the winter. While furnaces are the traditional way to heat a home in more northern states, they are quite expensive to operate. Gulfshore Air recommends our customers choose heat pumps to heat and cool their homes because they are more energy-efficient and better suited for our climate.

How They Work

Heat pumps move heat from one place to another, making them more efficient for heating in the Niceville, FL area and other warmer climates. The heat pump consists of an outdoor unit and indoor unit. To heat your home, liquid refrigerant moves through the outdoor evaporator coil, absorbing heat from the outside air. The refrigerant is compressed into a gas, and moves into the inside heat exchanger coil where it releases the produced heat then converts back into a liquid. The heat released is distributed through the home by an air handler.

Benefits In Our Climate

This process works best in areas where the temperature is always above freezing, like Destin, Rosemary Beach, Seaside, and Niceville! 

Because heat pumps do not generate heat, they are more efficient, especially in warm climates. An air-source pump can generate up to three times as much heat energy as the amount of electricity it takes to operate the unit. High-efficiency heat pumps are also effective at dehumidifying Florida homes, making your house more comfortable year-round.

Heat pumps also work to condition the air in your home in the summer, so you won’t have to worry about two separate systems for heating vs cooling.

Efficiency Ratings

Heat pumps are rated with a heating seasonal performance factor, or HSPF, with the highest ratings falling between 8 and 10. Gulfshore Air specializes in high-efficiency, high SEER HVAC equipment. We always recommend what will work best for your home, your family, and your budget.
