Homes come in all different shapes and sizes and you will need a unit that is tailored to your specific needs. Here are some things to consider when purchasing your heat pump in Tampa:
Most air conditioners and heat pumps in Tampa use a refrigerant known as R-22. Emissions of this refrigerant into the earth’s atmosphere are known to be harmful to the ozone layer. The Clean Air Act of 1990 prohibits the production of HCFC-based air conditioners and heat pumps by 2010 and bans Freon-22 production by 2020. As Freon production reduces, its cost will increase, as we have already seen.
Consider Puron Refrigerant. This refrigerant is environmentally sound and won’t deplete the ozone layer. There are over 2,500,000 homes in the U.S. alone that are using Puron refrigerant and are enjoying enhanced comfort, more reliable products, money savings and environmentally sound operation all at once. You will also protect yourself from the potentially rising service costs associated with R-22 refrigerant.
Make sure you purchase a heat pump in Tampa that is durable. Your unit needs to be built tough inside and out. Look for things on the outside like:
- Weather Armor protection and galvanized steel cabinets. This will keep your system looking its best for years.
- Louvered Coil Guard looks great and will help keep your system operating its best by protecting your coil from sticks, rocks, lawn equipment and more.
- Baked on powder paint that evenly coats all exterior surfaces to protect from rust and corrosion.
Make sure you purchase a heat pump in Tampa that has a filter drier on the inside that removes moisture and debris from refrigerant to protect the compressor and help maintain performance. Look for a copper micro tube aluminum fin coil that provides corrosion resistance and heat transfer.
