How to choose your Heat Pump system?
- Source of fuel Type to use, such as Eclectic, oil, Propane or Natural gas Heating source
- Heating Systems such as Forced Air vs. Hot Water or a Heat ump
- The efficiency of the existing and new Heating system
- Capacity needed for your project
- Cost of new heat pump and Maintenance
- Furnaces band and quality
- Furnace DC or Ac Motor
- Electric Heat Pump
How do we size a heat pump?
Time to buy a heat pump, and you’re wondering what capacity unit you’ll need for your home. You only need to know two things before buying a furnace; your home size and the climate zone you are in. We advise customers that your heat pump should provide a minimum of 25-30 BTU of heat per square foot; geographic location may change a little calculation. For instance, a medium-sized home of two-thousand square feet would require approximately 60,000 BTU capacities to heat efficiently.
How much does a Heat Pump cost?
A new heat pump costs depending on the size of your home, the efficiency of your new heat pum , type, brand & the model of a heat pum you choose. Canadian homeowners can expect to pay between $5000 and $9000 including furnace installation. There are few different Gov energy savaging rebate that will help you to choose your best hvac system.
How long does it take Heat pump replacement?
The amount of time it takes to replace a Heat pump depends on many different factors, including the skill of the technicians, the size of your home and the type of hvac system you are planning to replace, but it usually takes between 4 to 10 hours. Please reach out to learn more about the variables that will increase Heat pump installation time such as home layout, etc.
About heat pump efficiency
Air-Source Heat Pump (ASHP):
An air-source unitary heat pump model is a product other than a packaged terminal heat pump, which consists of one or more assemblies, powered by single phase electric current, rated below 65,000 Btu per hour, utilizing an indoor conditioning coil, compressor, and refrigerant-to-outdoor air heat exchanger to provide air heating, and may also provide air cooling, dehumidifying, humidifying circulating, and air cleaning.1
Central Air Conditioner (CAC):
A central air conditioner is a product, which is powered by single phase electric current, air cooled, rated below 65,000 Btu per hour, not contained within the same cabinet as a furnace, the rated capacity of which is above 225,000 Btu per hour, and is a heat pump or a cooling unit only.1
A single package unit is an air source heat pump or central air conditioner that has all major assemblies enclosed in a single cabinet.2
A split system is an air source heat pump or central air conditioner that has one or more of the major assemblies separated from the others.2
Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF):
HSPF is the total space heating required in region IV during the space heating season, expressed in Btu, divided by the total electrical energy consumed by the heat pump system during the same season, expressed in watt-hours.3
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER):
SEER is the total heat removed from the conditioned space during the annual cooling season, expressed in Btu, divided by the total electrical energy consumed by the air conditioner or heat pump during the same season, expressed in watt-hours.2
Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER):
EER is the ratio of the average rate of space cooling delivered to the average rate of electrical energy consumed by the air conditioner or heat pump. This ratio is expressed in Btu per watt.h (Btu/W.h). 2
