Benefits of an Air-Source Heat Pump (ASHP)
An ASHP can provide efficient heating and cooling for your home. Since they have the ability to provide both cooling and heating, they serve as a single solution to keeping your home’s internal temperature comfortable year-round.
One of our Dakota Electric members, Greyson W., recently installed an ASHP at his home. Here’s what he had to say about it.
What made you decide to purchase an ASHP? “I was in need of a new cooling and heating system and wanted an option that was effective, efficient, and sustainable. I did a lot of research and decided on the ASHP. This is my first step toward beneficial electrification.”
Have you noticed a difference in your home’s temperature? “I’ve noticed that the heating and cooling are more consistent than before. The ASHP has longer run times at lower speeds which allows for more even heating and cooling. The unit is also very quiet, which is a plus.”
How did you pick the make/model of your ASHP? “I chose a variable-speed ASHP because it has a high-efficiency rating under ENERGY STAR®, optimal dehumidification capabilities with the control system, and senses operating conditions and adjusts to enhance system reliability.”
How did you find an installer? “I searched online and found a few places to get estimates and Angell Aire in Burnsville got back to me quickly with a competitive estimate. Angell Aire also took care of submitting my rebates to Dakota Electric so that was an added bonus.”
