When it comes to heating or cooling a home, everyone desires to get the most efficient solution. This means saving money on utility bills, while achieving a level of air quality that can keep you and your family healthy. While there are a few different systems to help you achieve both goals, we recommend a ductless heat pump as it provides efficiency, and more.
A ductless heat pump will cool your home just like an air conditioning unit would do. During the summer, the heat pump reverses the flow of the coolant through a special valve. This allows it to absorb the heat inside your home using the indoor coils and then release it outside via the outdoor portion of your system, thus cooling your home.
How Does a Ductless Heat Pump Heat Your Home?
During winter, the refrigerant typically absorbs heat from outside and then releases it inside, thus heating your home. Every ductless heat pump has two heat exchanger coils, one for condensing the refrigerant and another for evaporating it.
A new ductless heat pump is energy-efficient, and it demands very little power to keep running. This is because modern ductless heat pumps come with DC inverter technology to control the pump’s energy usage. In addition to saving on monthly bills, you might also be eligible for rebates and tax credits for installing a ductless system.
A ductless heat pump is also easy to install as compared to other HVAC systems. Provided that you have a good location to drill three holes to connect the indoor and outdoor compressor, you’re set to go. And with the right technician, the process will take less time since they are well-versed on how to go about it.
A ductless heat pump makes it easy to maintain your existing interior design with minimally intrusive and customizable placement options. Air-handlers may be suspended from a ceiling, affixed to a wall, or mounted into drop ceilings, while floor options exist as well. Additionally, a ductless heat pump is remarkably quiet when working, so you don’t have to worry about any noise.
One of the significant benefits of a ductless heat pump is that it not only heats your home during winter but can also cool your home during summer, just like any air conditioning unit. Furthermore, it offers excellent dehumidification. As a result, your home will be cooler during summer, which means you and your family will enjoy better comfort.
Often the quality of air inside a home is lower than the quality outside. This is contributed to dust, chemicals, fumes, and allergens that make their way inside. Without proper circulation in home pollutants remain in your living space and reduce the quality of the air inside. With the consistent filtration of a ductless system, you and your family will stay healthier, and your home will stay cleaner as well as free from in home pollutants, dust, and other air contaminants.
A ductless heat pump gives you complete control, comfort, and convenience. Alongside maintaining a healthy indoor climate, it provides the opportunity to save on energy bills, enjoy flexible and hassle-free operations. Since homes are different, you need a qualified technician to help you determine the ductless heat pump type that best suits your home.
