Explaining how it works!
A heat pump is essentially an air conditioner that can provide both heating and cooling. Heat pumps are generally highly efficient. The only real downfall to this type of system is that because there are coils on the outside, they collect ice. That means that the pump must melt this ice from time to time, switching it to being an air conditioner so the coils heat up. Then, as the ice finally melts, the switch goes back to the heating side.
The heating and cooling functions of a heat pump each have their own measure of efficiency. A heat pump's cooling efficiency is measured by its "Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating," or SEER. Its heating efficiency is measured by its "Heating Seasonal Performance Factor," or HSPF.
One of the most important choices you will make in buying a heat pump is which contractor to hire. A good contractor will correctly size your heat pump, help you calculate the payback period of high- and low-efficiency equipment, and ensure that the equipment is installed properly. In addition, they will respond promptly when you have an HVAC crisis, provide ongoing maintenance, and act as a go-between with the manufacturer to replace failed parts under warranty. Much like choosing a lawyer or an accountant, you should approach the choice of an HVAC contractor carefully.
Approach your selection of an HVAC contractor the same way you would hire an employee: interview several, get references, and decide slowly. Probably the best way to start is to call friends who live in your town, and ask them who they would recommend. Small businesses (such as the typical HVAC company) live and die by word-of-mouth referral. If a contractor knows that one of their current clients referred them to you, they will work harder to make you happy.
Make sure to ask to see your contractor's certification and proof of insurance. Ask for references from three previous customers and then call to followup with those references. You’ll learn more from talking to a past customer about questions they wish they had asked than from simply reading testimonials. In addition, make sure that there's a good fit between personalities you want to be sure that you feel comfortable asking questions.
While price is usually an important consideration, make sure that if you hire the low-cost contractor, it is because they have an excellent reputation!
Think of your heat pump as the car you drive. At least once a year you should have a scheduled inspection to make sure it's "safe". The same concept applies to any piece of heating, cooling or ventilation equipment that you have installed in your home. Especially something that involves your health and the air your breath. The number one cause of equipment failure is lack of preventive maintenance. For a small fee you should have your heat pump and air exchanger inspected and maintained by a qualified company.
New Brunswick cost per kilowatt/hour = $0.1025 (May change)
Average baseboard heater size 1500 watts = 1.5 kw/hour
Average of 8 baseboard heaters on main level of your home (count them)
12000 BTU LG HSV4 heat pump power consumption max in heat = 2.37 kw/hour
Here is how you figure out exactly how much power your are consuming with baseboard heat:
1.5kw/hour x Number of baseboard heaters X Cost per kilowatt/hour X Average on time in hours
1.5kw/hr x 8 x .1025 cents x 10hrs = $12.30 per day x 30 days = $369.00
Here is how you figure out exactly how much power your consuming with a High Efficiency Heat Pump
2.37kw/hr x 1 (12k heat pump) x .1025 cents x 10 hours = $2.23 per day x 30 days = $70.88
Lets assume that a heat pump will work harder (20 hours per day) than the baseboards to allow the heat to pass thought your entire floor of an average 1200 sq ft house and maintain 21 C / 70 F
2.37 x .1025 x 20 hours = $4.89 per day x 30 days = $145.76
That's an average saving on your electric bill of $224 per month during the cold New Brunswick months
