  • Why does a heat pump need to be sized?

    Every home is unique and it takes training to select the right sized heat pump for the job. A heat loss calculation and heat pump sizing will be done by our trained professionals when they come to your house. The size is a combination of three measurements: capacity needed, BTU’s needed for the heating and the kilowatts of electricity needed.  It is all based on the climate in which you live and the specifics of your house.

  • Why are heat pump sizes in tons?

    Systems are typically sized in ton increments, such as 1 ton, 2 ton, 3 ton and 4 ton heat pumps. This Bryant heat pump comes in 2-5 ton sizes. Tons is an expression related to the capacity of the heat pump or air conditioner to produce heat for a certain sized area. It does not mean that the unit weighs that amount. We’d need a lot more than 2 men to install them if they did.

  • How much does a Bryant Preferred 17 SEER heat pump cost?

    It depends on the size of the unit, those tons discussed in the answers above. Placement, electrical, your air handler or furnace that will go with it and the coil that transfers the heat/cool, can all be factors in the price. If you have a newer home and the builder installed a coil to make your home heat pump or A/C ready, that may save you significantly on the cost.
