Alright! So you want to buy a heat pump for your Tampa home, and you aren’t sure what to do next. There’s so much information out there that it can seem overwhelming. It might be tempting just to buy whatever is least expensive, or the first one you see, and hope for the best, right?

WRONG. You should educate yourself. In this article, we’ll cover what a heat pump does, why you may want one, and why a Carrier heat pump installation might just be perfect for your home. Let’s dive in.

First, off, what’s a heat pump, and why would you choose one over an air conditioner?

A heat pump looks like an air conditioner. And it’s primary function – changing the temperature of your home – sure sounds like an air conditioner. But it isn’t an air conditioner. It’s not really a heat pump, either – or at least that isn’t a name worthy of this little trifecta. It’s a heater. It’s an air conditioner. It’s a dehumidifier. It’s an all-in-one comfort factory – of course people want them.

Whether you buy some other brand or a Carrier, heat pumps work the same way. They move hot air around, pumping it outside in the summer, or pulling it indoors in the winter. Unless the temperature drops well below freezing in Tampa, these little beauties can do the work of three major home appliances, and even then, they can work in tandem with a traditional heating system.

They cost a bit more upfront than a standard air conditioner, but they can work in conjunction with (or as a replacement for) your gas or oil heater to drastically lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

So what’s the big deal with Carrier?

Do you like air conditioning? Do you like walking in out of the summer heat and saying “Ahh!” in front of those vents as they blow cool air in your face?

Of course you do. And that’s all thanks to a man named Willis Carrier. Over a century ago, he invented the technology that would become modern air conditioning, filed a few patents, and started the Carrier Corporation.

During the century and change since that time, his company has established a long tradition of excellent customer service, reliability, consumer-friendly pricing, and equipment that just does what it says it’s going to do. If you’re considering a Carrier heat pump for your Tampa area home, any HVAC professional will tell you it’s a safe bet. Best of all, Carrier trains and educates dealers and air conditioning installationcontractors, maintaining close relationships that spell many years of comfort for you, the consumer.
