Options for Heat Pumps vs. AC Systems in Hot Humid Climates

Expert Help in Understanding Your Heating and Cooling Options from Lee’s Air Conditioning Company

Choosing the right air conditioning solution for your Lafayette, Louisiana, home can help you cope with high temperatures and humid conditions during the summer months. Average high temperatures in Lafayette for the months of July and August range in the low 90s, so staying cool is a high priority for residents in our area. A high-efficiency heat pump can help you manage your utility costs while providing you with real comfort throughout the year. Understanding your options in the climate control marketplace can help you make the right decisions for your home and your family.

Heat Pumps vs. Traditional Air Conditioning Systems

  • Traditional systems use separate equipment to perform heating and cooling tasks:
  • Furnaces and other traditional heating systems produce heat through combustion of fuel or use of electric power.
  • Air conditioning units consist of an outdoor condenser and an indoor blower unit that distributes cool air throughout the home.

By contrast, heat pumps provide all-in-one climate control by extracting heat from air during the summer and reversing the process during the cold of winter. This allows for greater flexibility in managing indoor temperatures and can provide real help in the ever-changing world of Louisiana weather.

Why Heat Pumps and Hybrid Heat Systems Make Sense for Lafayette Homes

According to figures released by the U.S. Department of Energy, heat pumps can reduce the amount of energy needed to keep your home comfortable throughout an average year. This is especially important in the hot and humid climate of southern Louisiana, which requires use of cooling strategies for much of the year. Savings can potentially add up to as much as 40 percent for homes heated and cooled using electricity. Hybrid heat solutions can also offer added control for homeowners and integrate a standard furnace with a high-efficiency heat pump to reduce energy expenditures while keeping your home at comfortable temperature levels throughout the year.

At Lee’s Air Conditioning Company, we specialize in providing you with the best options to manage summer heat and winter cold effectively, including hybrid heat solutions, advanced heat exchange pumps and traditional systems. We offer emergency heating and air conditioning repair services seven days a week, 24 hours a day to keep you and your family comfortable no matter what the weather in Louisiana brings.
