BTUs = Heat
Heat output is rated in BTUs. Heat Pump BTUs are calculated by Tonnage x 12,000, so a 3 ton unit will make about 36,000 BTUs. To compare, the typical furnace installed with a 3 ton A/C systems would be about 100,000 BTUs. This translates into two to three times faster heating.
Gas Furnace vs Heat Pump
For a Clearwater (Tampa Bay) area home
- Heats without drying the air
- No Harmful combustion gasses
- More Energy Efficient then gas
- A/C system not idle in winter
- 40s and below has trouble making heat
- Blowing air can feel cold during defrost cycles
- Supliments with expensive electric heat
- Makes powerful heat regardless of outdoor temp
- Can quickly warm cool spaces (see BTUs = Heat)
- Quiet – no outdoor unit running during heat
- Heat cycles may keep the cooling coil cleaner
- Deadly carbon monoxide must be monitored
- Can make the air and your skin very dry
- Cost of fuel more expensive per BTU
Information about gas furnace efficiency and our area.
Furnaces group into two efficiencies: 90% and 80%. The 90% are a condensing style furnace which require special combustion air venting. Retrofitting to a 90% can be quite expensive. The base cost of 90% furnaces cost about 25-30% more than an 80%. An additional cost is involved in retrofitting to accommodate a 90% when an 80% has been removed. If your home does not have natural gas currently, it can be a considerable expense to have that service installed. In a northern area with a long winter, the extra expence will eventually pay for itself in savings, in our area customers be confident in knowing they have a smaller carbon footprint. As a consumer, it is up to you to best decide how to heat and cool your home.
