"Arcoaire: Keeping me warm in the winter"
We have lived in our house for a year and a half. Our Arcoaire heat pump system has done good the past two winters with only one exception. We got down to 3 degrees and a wind chill of -25 this past winter and it seemed like it was struggle to keep up with the heat loss from our building, and I believe that it did use the electric heat strips quite often judging by our electricity bill. Since we have lived here though we have had to replace the compressor and recharge with R-22 twice. We believe there is still a small leak somewhere, but that isn't the equipments fault. Knowing the previous owners of the house, there hasn't been any other problems with this particular unit if the past 4 or 5 years. I would recommend that someone buy this brand because it is relatively cheap compared to other brands out there. Sure it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that others may have but it definitely gets the job done. Seeing how the only problem we really have ever had with it was when it got down to 3 degrees and a negative wind chill, I would recommend this unit because its very rare that Texas or any other state in the south see's that kind of weather.
