What You Need to Know About Ductless Heat Pumps
Presented by: Bob Hedden of the Hedden Company
There has been a lot of noise in the media about heat pumps as the solution to climate change. Your customers are probably asking you about them. Maybe they already bought one and are asking you to service it. In this session Bob will present the advantages and disadvantages of heat pumps and describe the service they require.\
There is a wide variation in how much a customer uses their heat pump. According to a Vermont study the annual equivalent full-load hours of heating use by heat pumps owners varies from under 500 hours to over 4,000! How and where they are installed, how the customer uses them, and how they are serviced all have an impact on how much they are used, and how satisfied your customer will be with their heat pump. Bob will discuss how you can help you customers decide if one is right for them, and how to get the most out of the one they already own.
