Heat pump sizing and lock-out control facts 

Heat pump sizing is an energy efficiency procedure that verifies that your heating system is appropriately sized for the needs of your home. The evaluation is completed by a qualified contractor and can be performed on either a new or existing heat pump.

A lock-out control is a money-saving tool for heating your home after nights with sudden drops in temperature. It prevents less efficient electric strip heat from turning on during timed warm-up cycles—usually in the morning—when your heat pump's more efficient compression heat is capable of meeting your needs by itself.
