When you’re in the market for a new heat pump for your Manatee, Florida, home, not just any system will do. Instead, invest in a heating and cooling system that will keep your family comfortable and your utility bills low for years to come. From superior energy efficiency to smart thermostat capabilities, look for these three features in your next heat pump.

Superior Energy Efficiency

If more than a decade has passed since you last purchased a heat pump, you’ll be pleased to find how much energy-efficient technology has advanced. Choosing a high-tech heat pump that’s eco-friendly and that will keep your energy bills as low as possible is a no-brainer.

For superior energy efficiency, the Aqua Plumbing & Air team recommends looking for a heat pump with Energy Star certification. This certification indicates that the system has a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating of at least 15 and a heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) rating of at least 8.5.

Variable-Speed Compressor

Some heat pumps have just two modes: off and on. Many newer heat pumps boast variable-speed compressors and adaptable-speed technology, which allow them to operate at a range of speeds. When your heat pump can run at a low speed most of the time and kick into high gear when the weather really heats up, you can rest assured that you’ll always be comfortable indoors.

Our team recommends a high-tech Carrier model like the Infinity 20 heat pump with Greenspeed Intelligence. This model’s innovative Greenspeed intelligence ensures precise temperature control no matter the weather.

Smart Thermostat Capabilities

When you want to streamline your home’s heating and cooling setup, a smart thermostat is essential. While many Carrier heat pumps work with high-tech Infinity controls, don’t hesitate to ask our team for details before choosing. You’ll want to make sure that your heat pump and thermostat work seamlessly to improve energy efficiency and comfort while providing maintenance reminders and system diagnostics.
