Staying warm in winter used to mean frequent trips to your thermostat, repeated calls to HVAC service contractors, and higher utility bills — even in Montgomery, Alabama. New technologies have changed the landscape for heating during the winter and cooling during the summer. Combine a heat pump with a variable speed motor and a smart thermostat, to get one of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems for your home.
You’ve probably heard that heat pumps aren’t efficient in extremely cold weather, but this is no longer the case. Updated heat pumps have overcome the limitations that used to plague the old models. Now, the newest advancements in heat pump technology use that heat exchange even more efficiently. Air-source heat pumps used to lose efficiency when temperatures dropped, but new technologies mean heat pumps can handle temperatures well below freezing while using less energy overall than oil or gas furnaces.
Carrier’s newest heat pump technology uses Greenspeed intelligence. Greenspeed intelligence further focuses on the electricity usage of heat pumps by varying the capacity at which the units run. These heat pumps aren’t always on at full capacity. Instead, Carrier’s Greenspeed heat pumps run at partial capacity when heating and cooling needs are less demanding.
Greenspeed intelligence goes hand in hand with smart thermostats from Carrier. Thermostats like those in the Infinity line can efficiently manage indoor temperatures. The thermostat adjusts the heat pump’s energy usage accordingly. The Infinity thermostat also adapts to your preferred home comfort settings, and then adjusts how the entire system runs to reduce your electricity consumption.
