    Heat Pump Question

    I am upgrading my HVAC in my home. Does anyone know who manufacturers a 3 ton heat pump with a hot water coil built into the unit? I will be using oil fired hot water as a back up heat instead of an electric grid.

    Your opinions would be very helpful

    Make sure you actually need 3 tons of cooling.

    What is your Heat Pump THERMAL BALANCE POINT?

    1. ZIP
    2. AGE, Size & type of residence?
    3. Window total area & type of glass?
    4. Amount of infiltration?

    5. Determine if strip heat would be minimal size & used infrequently.

    MANY Manufacturers can provide a hot water coil in a dual fuel (hybrid) set-up.

    Trane makes an air handler that can use either elements or hydronic coil.
