A Furnace vs A Mitsubishi Heat Pump
Whether they’re here on Vancouver Island or anywhere else across this country, most Canadians are familiar with a furnace being present in a home.
People will usually hear their furnace come on and at some point they realize it stopped
Often, that realization comes from feeling cool or cold. They then go to the thermostat located somewhere in a central area of the main living level and raise the temperature to a ‘set point’ they believe will make the home comfortable.
That experience is often described like, feeling too cool, then up to comfortable, and then down to too cold again. It has been referred to as, “the yo-yo effect”. Often a complaint is uttered, such as; ‘it is always cold in that corner or area of the house’.
With that common experience in mind, let’s consider what actually took place. A furnace by itself is unable to offer a much different experience. By definition, a furnace is, “an enclosed chamber where materials such as coal, oil, propane, natural gas can burn to very high temperatures”. In some furnaces there is an electric element (like in your kitchen toaster, although much larger). The element will turn on and ‘burn electricity’, to provide the heat you called for.
Most people are used to that experience and many feel it’s normal, or just the way it always is.
If you relate to that experience, be assured …. “THAT IS NOT HOW IT HAS TO BE!”
There are differences in the quality and features of most manufactured things. All Heat Pumps for example are NOT Equal, even though many brands may look the same.
A Mitsubishi heat pump is designed to provide an even temperature throughout your home, whether you require heating or cooling to maintain the temperature you want.
The Mitsubishi interior air handler or ductless appliance, has a sensor that continually monitors the temperature of the air returning to it from inside your home. If the air temperature is lower than the set point you chose, the exterior heat pump will very quietly ramp up to provide heat until the sensor senses that your set point or desired temperature has been reached. Checking your home temperature with some air movement is done automatically. With the Mitsubishi heating and cooling system, all areas of your home are able to maintain the temperature you desire because of the slow and more continual movement of air. The same process works when you want cooler temperatures.
The joy of a home with an even temperature throughout the year, is what you will experience. Your home, most people’s largest investment, is always very comfortable.
