How a Heat Pump Works?

Heat pump size calculator
Getting the size of your heat pump right for the room your trying to heat and cool is important for the efficiency and life of the heat pump. A heat pump that is too small will cause the heat pump to overwork to try to achieve the desire temperature. It can run into frosting or icing issues and reduce its efficiency. A heat pump that is too large will continuously cycle on and off and doesn't give the compressor enough time to maintain a healthy run cycle. Both scenarios damage the heat pump and can cause your investment to break down and shorten the life of the heat pump.
Besides the obvious factor of floor space required for heating and cooling, there are 7 less obvious factors that should be considered when choosing the size of the heat pump. These include ceiling height, unit location, insulation, the number of windows, occupants, electrical equipment, and the building construction.
