Getting a hybrid heating combination

The average temperature in Tuscaloosa swings from the mid thirties into the upper nineties! While it periodically soars into the triple digits, conditions rarely drop below chilly.

When I bought a apartment in Tuscaloosa, it was already equipped with a boiler and central air conditioner combination.

The heating unit was nearly brand up-to-date and a top-of-the-line model. The cooling unit was seriously outdated and struggled to manage the summer time heat and brutal humidity. The air conditioner seemed to run non stop and yet I wasn’t satisfied with the level of comfort, then plus, it consumed a good deal of energy, resulting in super high energy bills; I started looking into up-to-date air conditioners. When I consulted with a local Heating, Ventilation plus A/C corporation in Tuscaloosa, he suggested purchasing a heat pump instead, however a heat pump is quite a bit more pricey than an air conditioner. This is because the single unit provides both heating and cooling. It operates by simply transferring heat between the indoors and outdoors. The process is especially clean, quiet and energy efficient. It costs a lot less to operate a heat pump than a boiler, for the local weather conditions, the combination of a heat pump and boiler is ideal. The heat pump handles demand for the majority of the year, but during the summer time months, it operates just like an air conditioner. The system is especially effective at dehumidifying. When the weather cools off, it reverses the flow of refrigerant to bring ambient heat indoors. If the outdoor temperature should drop below chilly and the heat bump begins to have difficulties measuring up, the boiler automatically starts up.
