The guy preparing a heat pump quote for me says the vision pro 8000 is
not recommended for heat pumps. Is this true? I'm skeptical.
The plan is to rip out old the oil furnace and replace with heatpump
and variable speed ahu with 15kW strips (and skip the furnace).
Reheating in Coastal BC
The vison pro is ideal for heat pump & dual fuel applications. There are 3
residential models to choose. You have to use the model with 3 heat and 2
cooling stages. It has to be properly set up when installed. It has an
option for outdoor temperature senser that can control electric reheat and
heat pump shut down based on outdoor temperature. It is the only tstat I
have found that can actually lock out the electric reheat based on outdoor
air temperature... which will save a lot of money during the recovery cycle.
If your guy doesn't know this, then I would be skeptical of his control
knowledge as well as his ability to provide you with a quality system. A lot
of people can *install* hvac, few can actually make it work properly.
Bubba, don't you mean ripped, torn and beaten out??
