Do you believe everything you hear about residential HVAC systems?
Lots of people seem to think they know everything about residential HVAC systems. If you have asked friends or family for advice before purchasing a new system, you already know that nearly everyone has a strong opinion on the matter.
Unfortunately, a lot of that “useful advice” being tossed around is completely false. Here are three things about residential HVAC systems everyone thinks are true but actually aren't:
- You have to buy a furnace and an air conditioner separately. This is not always true. For some homeowners, an all-in-one packaged system can be an excellent option. A packaged system bundles heating and cooling capabilities in one convenient unit.
- A heat pump just moves warm air into your home. Wrong again. A heat pump can pump warm air into AND out of your home, depending on your needs. Therefore, a heat pump can fulfill the functions of a furnace and an air conditioner.
- Having big, noisy machinery is part of the experience of having residential HVAC systems. Not necessarily! In fact, most packaged systems can be entirely installed outside the home, and the newest models are often extremely quiet. You might be surprised by how peaceful residential HVAC systems really are.
