With winter weather in full swing and temperatures continuing to fall, it’s no fun spending time outdoors in the cold. Staying warm and comfortable indoors, regardless of what the weather looks like outside, is essential for your family members’ comfort, health and well-being. If you have a traditional style furnace in your home that is struggling to keep up with the demands of heating your property, there is another option. Consider adding a ductless mini-split heat pump.
How Does a Mini Split Heat Pump Work?
You are probably familiar with the more traditional HVAC heating and air unit but, you may not be aware of an alternative, the ductless mini-split heat pump; just like your heat pump, your mini-split works by transferring heat inside and outside your home. In layman’s terms, heat from the exhaust is transferred into your home to keep it warm during winter. During the summer, the direction of heat transfer is reversed to keep your home cool and comfortable. Unlike your HVAC unit, a ductless mini-split heat pump doesn’t require any ductwork and instead uses indoor air handlers combined with an outdoor unit to heat and cool your home.
Is a Mini Split System Worth It?
There are countless benefits to ductless mini-split systems, including:
Can Be Combined with Your Existing HVAC System: If you have central air conditioning, a boiler, or furnace that is struggling to keep the temperature in your home comfortable, a ductless mini-split is the solution. Installing a mini-split will add an extra layer of comfort while preserving your existing HVAC system and extending its lifespan.
Ensure Your Comfort Year Round: Ductless mini-split pumps offer the convenience of heating and cooling, so you can use them year-round to keep your home comfortable regardless of the temperature outside. You control each area within your home with multiple air handling units. A ductless system give new meaning to the term zoned heating and cooling. Instead of setting a uniform temperature throughout the entire house the way you would with a traditional heating and air system, your mini-split pump allows you to control the indoor temperature room by room by setting individual air-handling units to the temperature of your choice.
Increasing Energy Efficiency to Save Money on Energy Bills: Ductless mini-splits are one of the most energy-efficient systems available, less energy used means extra dollars in your pocket each month.
Improved Indoor Air Quality: Your central air system requires specialized duct cleaning to remove dust, dirt, and dander effectively. Mini-split heat pumps takethe need for ductwork out of the equasion which allows you to reduce the number of pollutants circulating throughout your space. Simply clean your air filters once per month with warm water between your regularly scheduled maintenance appointments to provide a healthier indoor environment for you and your family members.
