    I know there are a few from Charlotte that check in here. I am in Wake Forest, so that is a bit outside our service area, but hopefully one of the Charlotte folks can help you. Good luck.

    On a side note I assume it is recommended to have a heat pump installed over just electric heat. This is for a modular home.

    That certainly would be my choice and recommendation

    Thanks, any special needs for a heat pump when it comes to modular homes?

    No. Many times the blower and electric heat can be reused. Most modular applications have a drop-in downflow coil that if it is replaced with one designed for a heat pump, and paired up to an oudoor unit will work just fine. Should be fairly straight forward.

    Make sure the contractor takes your ducting into account. Very few mobile homes do an adequate job of moving more than about 1200 CFM of air, and you can't skimp on air with a heat pump. You may need to have a more powerful blower installed to overcome the restriction of your ducts. This may lead to more duct leakage as well. It's pretty important to have a contractor that knows manufactured homes. Here in Nevada you actually have to carry a different state license.

    Replacing the blower/air handler may be needed even though it can sometimes be done without replacing the full system. Also most manufacturers and federal tax credits dictate that a matched (new indoor and outdoor system) need to be installed to meet rebate standards.

    the federal tax credit is 500 dollars, and he will spend twice that if not more just to get the credit.

    i know of a few companies that service that area, i have an email in my profile if you would like to know of them.

    I travel that far, but it's a 102 mile round trip; so service would be scheduled a week out. maintenance is strongly recommended.
