Top 5 Reasons to Consider A Ductless Split Heat Pump for Your Home
Is there a room in your home that never seems warm enough in the winter? Or do you have a new addition that doesn’t connect to your existing ductwork? If so, a great solution for you would be a ductless split heat pump.
As the name suggests, a ductless split heat pump system can regulate your home’s temperature without the use of ductwork. It consists of one unit per room or area, and a compressor unit on the outside of your home. Furthermore, it can heat AND cool your home, while also saving you money on your energy bills!
In this blog post, we’ll review the top 5 reasons to consider a ductless split heat pump system.
1. Heating and Cooling Solution
A ductless split heat pump is best suited for providing heating and air conditioning for single rooms, additions and supplemental support for problem areas in larger homes.
When deciding if this system is right for your space, you’ll need to have professional load calculations completed. These calculations will allow you to determine the size unit you need to meet your heating and cooling needs.
2. Easy Installation
Adding ductwork to your home might be a highly impractical undertaking (or altogether impossible). With a ductless split heat pump system, you can brush those worries aside. They are easy to install by a professional and no major renovations are needed!
3. Year-round comfort
Another major benefit of a ductless split heat pump system is that it will heat your home in the winter and provide air conditioning in the summer months as well. In addition, they provide excellent dehumidification. As a result, your home will be cooler in the summer and less damp – and that means you and your family will be more comfortable without the need for a dehumidifier.
4. Energy Efficiency
Considering that heating and cooling can be the largest contributors to your electricity bill, a ductless system presents a cost-effective alternative to electric baseboards or wall heaters. In fact, heat pumps can lower heating costs by up to 80%, compared to standard electric resistance heating systems.
5. Quiet and sleek
Ductless split heat pump systems are extremely quiet and have been shown to have a long operating life. This means that you can enjoy home comfort without the noise that you might encounter with traditional heating systems and window air conditioners. Furthermore, with their small size and sleek, minimalist design, you may even forget all about them!
