My little brother is a total worrier. I am fairly certain that he worries about just about everything. He frets about what he is going to wear to work each morning, and he frets about more serious issues, like his heating and cooling system. My brother recently had a heat pump installed. Although the HVAC contractor who handled the heat pump installation assured him that the heating and cooling upgrade was a great idea and would save him a decent amount of money, my brother still worried about it. He worried that the heat pump would break and that he would have to call for an HVAC repair. He worried that something would go wrong with the heating and cooling upgrade itself… Well, you get the picture. Fast forward to this past weekend, when my brother called me in a panic. He told me that his heat pump was constantly blowing cold air. I indulged him and went over to his house to give him a second opinion on the heating and cooling crisis. Since I own a heat pump myself, I quickly realized that the cold air my brother was worried about was totally normal! My brother was used to the heating process of his old furnace. He had not realized that a heat pump puts out less heat for a much longer time, whereas his old furnace put out bursts of much hotter air for shorter periods of time. Since the air the heat pump exuded was cooler than his body temperature, my brother just assumed that it was putting out cold air. Of course, he had been so worried that he had not double checked the temperature of his home with the thermostat. I was glad to put my worrisome brother at ease!
