All About Variable Speed Heat Pumps for Huntsville & Madison Residents

All About Variable Speed Heat Pumps for Huntsville & Madison Residents

When it comes to your home’s heating and cooling system, you can trust us to recommend the best units for your individual needs. Variable Speed Heat Pumps are a great technology because they keep your home cool and comfortable in the summer and warm and toasty in the winter. They can even regulate your home’s humidity, making them the most efficient choice on the market.

AccuComfort™ Heat Pumps avoid the peaks and valleys of conventional systems by varying its output in 1/10 of 1% increments in order to stay within a 1/2 degree of its set temperature. The result is ultimate comfort and a quietly powerful way to satisfy your idea of home sweet home.

Energy Consumption

The Department of Energy states that over half of energy usage in homes is attributed towards heating and cooling the home. Variable Speed Heat Pumps greatly reduce your home’s energy consumption by not cycling off completely but instead keeping the temperature within 1 degree of your desired temperature. Since the system doesn’t completely power off and then back on, your home stays more comfortable and your energy bills get lower.

From the graphic below, you can see that it takes more than 8X the energy for a system to start and stop. Most systems can start/ stop up to 72 times per day during the hottest and coldest days of North Alabama. That’s a lot of wasted energy!
