Whether you’re finishing a basement area, adding new space, or just upgrading your home’s HVAC system, you owe it to yourself to check out the benefits of a ductless heat pump system. They offer numerous advantages over traditional HVAC units and can be a system that’s hard to beat.
More Comfort in Problem Spaces
If your home wasn’t built with a zoned HVAC system, you probably have rooms that are too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter. Cranking up your single-zone central AC system to cool a hot upstairs turns the downstairs into a meat locker while sending your electric bill through the roof. In winter, you probably have the opposite problem—the thermostat keeps the main level enjoyable but sends too much heat upstairs. It’s nearly impossible to make everyone in the house comfortable.
Another common problem is add-on spaces, such as a newly finished basement or a converted garage. Ductless systems are the perfect answer, requiring no extension of the existing home’s ductwork or HVAC system to heat and cool the new space effectively.
Ductless systems are installed with one outdoor condenser unit as well as one or more indoor air units, allowing for room-by-room heating and cooling. Individuals can stay comfortable in each room with individual temperature choices, and areas that are unused for the majority of the time do not have to be heated or cooled at all, saving you significantly on your energy costs.
Easier to Install
Gone are the days of requiring extensive ductwork to be sent through your walls to provide heating and cooling to your home. With a ductless heat pump installation, there is minimal structural work required. An outdoor compressor is installed, and thin copper tubing is used to pump refrigerant directly into an indoor air-handling unit, where the air is distributed to the interior space. These are easy to install and usually require only a 3- to 4-inch hole through a wall or ceiling to connect the indoor and outdoor units.
Most installations can be completed in a single day, reducing both your total cost as well as your inconvenience factor.
