BKR Energy is a team of experts when it comes to retrofitting existing HVAC systems to become hybrids – and the process is easier (and quicker) than you might think. Generally, we need to replace outdated air conditioners (ACs) with economic air source heat pumps (ASHPs) – although selecting the right size while ensuring compatibility isn’t always easy.
HP’s come in different sizes/capacities. Too small means HPs have to work harder and consistently to compromise homeowners’ thermal comfort and increasing utility bills, especially in cold weather. Too big, and homeowners face even costlier operation. The best size depends on the home characteristics and location.
Capability to maintain capacity is also key. In cold weather, some HP models lose their capacity quicker and need to work harder. That’s why we at BKR Energy run precise calculations on sizing, capacity, and efficiency to recommend the best solutions from the best brands.
