Should Oklahoma Residents Choose a Heat Pump or Air Conditioner?

Welcome to cowboy country! Like the rough and tumble lifestyle that comes with living in Oklahoma, you need a cooling system that can durably and effectively tackle your heating and cooling demands. But, what should you choose - a heat pump or an air conditioner? Both have their merits, you are going to receive powerful cooling performance either way, but a heat pump offers something a little extra.

It's the great cooling debate - should you purchase a heat pump or air conditioner? What are the perks of an air conditioner? Well, the up to 25.5 SEER iQ Drive air conditioner is one of the most efficient air conditioners on the market. Homeowners further south and west should seriously consider investing in this high-efficiency air conditioner - temperatures there tend to soar more than areas further north and east. In those other areas, it can be a good idea to invest in a heat pump for those seasonal transitions. The most efficient heat pump, the iQ Drive, up to 22-SEER heat pump, is nearly as efficient as its air conditioner counterpart and it will be much less expensive to operate than other electric heating methods when temperatures get cooler (it transfers heat from one air stream to another as opposed to creating original heat from electricity). High-efficiency cooling and this less-expensive heating can help homeowners save money keeping their home comfortable year round.

Always consult your contractor when it comes to the heat pump or AC system for your home - whether you live in Oklahoma City or Elk City, if you have a higher cooling demand, an air conditioner may be the way to go. On the other hand, a heat pump will be able to address some homeowner's year-round heating and cooling needs. Regardless of whether you decide to go with a heat pump or an air conditioner, you will experience superior indoor home comfort when temperatures outside are not so great.

Find a Quality Oklahoma Contractor

You can stress over the right system to choose for your home, or you can seek the advice of the heating and air conditioning specialist in your area. After all, they are the ones that are exposed to the different heating and cooling systems every day and will be the ones to actually install it in your home. They will be familiar with what other homeowners are having installed in their homes and can lead you in the right direction. But, make sure that you spend some time on the contractor search process. Examine their reputations with past clients and see whether or not they have maintained a reputation for quality. At the end of the day, so much of your total system performance levels are going to rely on the quality of the initial installation - even if the AC or heat pump rating is high. It doesn't matter if you choose an air conditioner, heat pump, high efficiency, standard efficiency, a complete HVAC system overhaul, etc., if they aren't installed correctly you will never be satisfied with your new unit.
