If you have an older HVAC system, you may notice it has some shortcomings in its efficiency. When a unit is not as efficient, you have to adjust the temperature to keep the air comfortable. This results in increased energy bills. If you want a more efficient option, you may want to consider a ductless heat pump. A ductless heat pump has many benefits, including the following:
Decreased Energy Bills
American households spend a lot of money each month on energy expenses, often the bulk of which is used to support the HVAC system. A ductless mini split unit can heat and cool a house more inexpensively because of the advanced technology used to operate the system. You may also qualify for a utility rebate if you install a ductless heat pump. You will need to check with your energy company to see if a rebate is an option.
More Environmentally Friendly
While many different factors contribute to the quality of the environment, one of the most harmful is the various fossil fuels used to generate energy. When you consume less energy, you contribute to a cleaner environment. A ductless heat pump uses less energy and is therefore cleaner than traditional HVAC systems. Using less fossil fuels will ultimate decrease the emissions from greenhouse gasses, which results in a healthier environment.
Better Control of Zones
The different zones in your home may need different levels of heating and cooling at any given time. When one room receives a lot of sunlight, it will get hotter faster and need to be cooled more than a room without any sunlight. Instead of operating your system at full speed to cool the entire home, a ductless heat pump will cool or heat different zones more efficiently. No matter what time of year or how hot or cold a room is, each zone will be comfortable.
Ease of Installation
A ductless heat pump is rather easy to install. The installation process is not invasive and will not put your system out of operation for a long period of time. You can typically have the system going with a same-day installation.
A mini split ductless heat pump is much quieter than a traditional HVAC system. In fact, you may not even realize the air or heat is on with this more technological system.
If you are interested in a ductless heat pump installation, be sure to discuss the options with an HVAC service, like Barnetts Heating & Air Conditioning.
