Heat Pumps for Your Home
For years, keeping your home at a comfortable temperature and humidity level required two different systems, one for heat and one for cooling. With the development of the mini-split heat pump and ductless A/C units, that has all changed. With the simple flip of a switch, the same system that had been providing air conditioning could now provide heat, and vice versa.
These condensing units tend to be small and can be mounted on the outside of the home while the blower is mounted inside the house, ready to deliver cool or warm air to a room or certain areas of your home. The heat pump and ductless AC unit is a more practical and energy efficient option to using a window or portable air conditioner in the summer and electric heater in the winter.
If your indoor air-handling unit is in good condition, you will be able to use it along with your existing ductwork. The disruption inside is minimal. For new construction, heat pumps require significantly less indoor space than a traditional furnace, freeing up square footage for other use.
Investing in a ductless air conditioning system is a great option when you don’t have an existing ventilation system, or if a portion of your home only needs air conditioning during part of the day.
Repairs and Service
Heat pumps and ductless A/C units are fairly simple systems, but they do have the occasional breakdown. Just like installation, repair is simpler because the entire unit is outdoors. This makes scheduling easier and requires less foot traffic into your home.
