New Construction in Clarksville Tennessee
Heat pumps are wonderfully efficient ways to heat and cool homes in warm climates. Since they use the heat exchange process to heat and cool the air for your home, they work in both summer and winter, switching the direction of the heat exchange accordingly. Heat pumps are more efficient than electricity as long as the outdoor temperature is above 32 degrees. If the temperature goes below freezing, that’s when heat pumps fall short. They either use so much energy heating the air that they stop being energy-efficient, or they can’t exchange enough heat to give you warm air at all. The temperature doesn’t go that low very often in Georgia, but it’s not unheard of. So, should you risk just going with a heat pump, or do you need a backup furnace?
