Ducted heat pumps and thermostat settings?

ronletourneau | Posted in Energy Efficiency and Durability on

Hello all,

Can you help me with some guidance about the wisest way to use the thermostat with a ducted heat pump system. With our typical radiant floor systems, we tell clients to set the thermostat to their preferred temp and mostly leave it alone due to the long response time. With wall-mounted mini-splits, clients generally adjust the thermostat as needed. What about for a ducted heat pump system? 

Thanks for your good advice,
Ron Letourneau

    I think all heat pumps work bests in a set it at one temp and forget mode.

    To me setting back the temp is best left the 3X oversized scorched air boxes.
