My condo uses a heat pump system for both heating plus cooling.
I simply need to press a button to change between the two settings. Since I upgraded to a smart control unit, even that is easier. I like my system plus it does a good task, but I am hopeful that it dies soon. The reason is that I don’t like that I have the benefit of a heat pump, however it is affixed through the HVAC duct. I constantly have issues with dirty plus dry air quality. That is due to the air going through the ducts, and once my system fails, I will change it to a ductless model. I want every room of the dwelling to have its own indoor air handler with a control unit. They will be affixed to one outdoor air compressor plus that is it. With this type of heat pump replacement, I can have Heating plus A/C zone control. I want my son’s room to be the ideal temperature range for babies. I want my kitchen a little warmer plus I know my spouse wants his room frigid cold. I additionally have a laundry room plus second bathroom that doesn’t need heating plus cooling most of the year. Why am I paying to supply temperature control there? This is my long-range plan. Sadly my heat pump is currently only around 7 years old. I still have around another ten years left. So anytime there is a slight mishap, I call for heat pump repair plus it gets the task done. Once it no longer can be fixed, I will absolutely be gleeful about upgrading to a nicer model.
