Alan Robert Ross Posted February 13, 2017 Share Posted February 13, 2017 I am curious to know if anyone has installed a heat pump in this area, to provide BOTH heating and cooling, with the typical ductwork. I realize an AC unit, whether central or a "split" is essentially a heat pump, without the ability to reverse the direction of the temperature change. And, having had heat pumps up north, I am not asking for general heat pump info, other than where someone might actually buy one in this area. While many people find no need for either cooling or heating more than a fan or a fireplace, lots of fans, an sweaters, that doesn't help with the humidity during the wet season or for rooms with less ventilation and no fireplace. I have been told that people don't put in central systems with ductwork because they don't want mold to form in the ducts. I wonder whether this is a fear that makes nobody try it, or in fact people have tried it and, even with a humidistat in the system to take moisture out of the air, they still had mold problems. So, I am interested in Where, preferably in the area, they might sell heat pumps and do duct installation work? Whether there are people who have put a heating/cooling/moisture control heat pump in their home in the Boquete area, and how it has worked out for them. If the heat pump idea doesn't work, I am wondering whether anyone has installed a "split" that can be used to heat OR cool. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
