Which Is Better for Your Kalispell Home: Air Conditioning Installation vs. Heat Pump, Columbia Falls, Montana

When deciding on the best cooling system for your Kalispell, MT, home, you have to weigh a number of factors, including efficiency, cost, and the projected life span of the system. If you are trying to choose between a central air conditioning installation or a heat pump, let the team at All Valley Mechanical in Columbia Falls, MT, help you decide. Their heating and cooling experts will explain the pros and cons of each so you can make the choice that is best for your home.

air conditioning installationIt might sound odd to consider a heat pump for cooling your home, but heat pumps and air conditioning work in virtually the same way. The main difference is that a heat pump can both heat and cool your home. A heat pump has a reversing valve that allows this to work. 

Central air conditioning installation is another option for your home, and many systems are designed for maximum energy efficiency. The higher your system’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER), the more efficiently it will run.

So, what is the best option for you? If you have an electric furnace you may consider a heat pump due to the rebates available from BPA and Flathead Electric. If you have a natural gas furnace then you may consider straight A/C.  As a cooling option, heat pumps run as efficiently as an A/C does.

Another incredibly efficient and affordable option is a ductless heat pump. Great rebates are currently available for these systems as well.
