The technology that goes into a new heat pump keeps getting better and better. These all-in-one heating and cooling systems are leading the way in energy-efficient climate control and now work effectively even when outside temperatures dip below freezing. Whether you’re researching your first heat pump installation project or looking to replace an existing unit, Trane has some impressive new features to consider.
Heat Pump Basics
A heat pump operates similar to an air conditioner. It uses a refrigerant to transfer heat out of the air indoors during summer and captures heat energy from the air in winter to warm the home even on chilly days. Heat pumps can be used year-round in mild climates and do not require natural gas for efficient heating.
Comfort Without Sacrificing Energy Efficiency
Top-of-the-line heat pumps bring a number of benefits to make your home more comfortable while conserving energy. For example, a variable-speed compressor allows the unit to run at a lower speed to better maintain a consistent temperature in your home. The system runs longer on the hottest days but uses less energy since it isn’t cycling on and off frequently. A variable-speed compressor can hold the temperature within half a degree of your desired setting. The extended running time with this technology also gives you superior control over humidity.
For mid-range budgets, a two-stage compressor is a great option. The heat pump can run on a low setting or on high. Compared to a typical single-stage compressor, this technology offers better comfort and temperature control in the home, reduces humidity and boosts energy efficiency.
Durable Heat Pump Components to Weather the Test of Time
Heat, humidity and salty air take a toll on heating and cooling equipment in Florida. Trane’s engineers put every component through extensive testing to find the best materials to hold up through heat, cold and everything else Mother Nature comes up with. On the outdoor unit, the fasteners are coated with zinc, the base pan won’t rust or corrode, and the louvers are made of galvanized steel to protect the internal components. Trane units also include a number of features that act together to reduce the noise level when the compressor is running. The quietest units run at a level comparable to the sounds in a library or during a conversation at home.
Convenient, High-Tech Controls
With the right thermostat, you can control your Trane heat pump from a smartphone or tablet in the next room or across the country. WiFi-enabled thermostats offer insight into energy usage, simplified programming and remote access. Trane’s innovative thermostats also integrate with the Nexia Bridge for even greater convenience as you connect your home’s systems and devices together.
