If you’re a homeowner in Venice, Florida, optimal indoor comfort is essential. If your heating and cooling system isn’t performing as well as you’d like, it’s time to consider an upgrade. From energy-efficient geothermal heat pumps to high-tech smart thermostats, take a look at four Carrier products to improve your home comfort.
If your home has a central air system, you may never have considered investing in a ductless heat pump system. You might be surprised to learn how helpful these systems can be for cooling light-filled sunrooms, new additions to your home, and finished attics or garages.
Like their name, ductless systems don’t require ducts, so they’re remarkably easy to install and won’t require an expensive reworking of your home’s ductwork. Ductless systems also can be very energy-efficient, so you won’t have to budget for a substantial increase in your electric bills.
At Aqua Plumbing & Air, we often recommend investing in a Carrier Infinity 38/40GRQ ductless heat pump, which offers superior energy efficiency and up to seven fan speeds so you can customize the cooling power. This innovative Carrier heat pump can switch to heating mode during the winter months, so you won’t need multiple systems to keep your home comfortable.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
When you really want to take your Venice home’s HVAC system to the next level, it’s time to consider a geothermal heat pump. A geothermal system draws energy from the ground in your backyard, where a network of coils taps into the thermal energy that’s naturally present underground. Geothermal systems are known for being some of the most energy-efficient options on the market, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to sacrifice comfort.
In fact, Carrier’s Performance Geothermal Heat Pump GP works with a variety of geothermal systems and offers both two-stage compression and a variable-speed blower for superior comfort in the winter or summer. With the right upgrade, this type of system can even produce hot water, making a Carrier geothermal pump a multipurpose solution to your most pressing home comfort needs.
Along with an advanced heating and cooling system, you’ll need a high-tech smart thermostat to make sure that your home is always at the right temperature. These innovative devices can perform a range of comfort-related functions, such as allowing you to set an automatic heating and cooling schedule for your home and letting you adjust the temperature settings from your smartphone. That means you could log in and change the settings whether you’re in the living room, at the office or at the beach, which is especially helpful if you’re also concerned about energy efficiency.
A smart device like the Carrier Côr Wi-Fi Thermostat can help you save energy and money while keeping your home at the perfect temperature. You can even take advantage of the thermostat’s smart setback feature, which automatically adjusts temperature settings based on your family’s habits. Pair it with Carrier’s Hybrid Heat package system for seamless indoor comfort no matter the season.
If you’ve lived in the Venice area for long, then you’ve undoubtedly experienced Florida’s hot, sticky summers. Although the humidity can be pleasant outdoors, it doesn’t feel quite as comfortable inside your home. In fact, excess moisture in the air can make your home feel hotter than it really is, which might prompt you to turn down your thermostat, making your air conditioner work overtime.
High humidity levels can also damage carpet and woodwork and cause mold to thrive in your home, but a whole-home dehumidifier can help. Unlike portable dehumidifiers, whole-home models, like the Carrier Performance DEHXX, work with your HVAC system to improve indoor air quality in every room of your home. Not only can a Carrier whole-home dehumidifier improve your comfort level in the summer, but it can also give your air conditioner a break and help it last for years to come.
