Save Energy and Money by Transferring Heat from the Outside In
Our winter weather is quite mild around here, which is why the heat pump is such a great heating option to consider in this area. Like traditional heat pumps, which utilize air ducts in order to distribute heated and cooled air throughout one’s home, ductless mini split heat pumps make use of existing heat in the air outside in order to heat one’s home. The refrigerant cycle that allows for the cooling of one’s home during the summer is reversed, and heat is drawn out of the air outside, the warm refrigerant is compressed further, and that thermal energy is used to heat the interior space of a home. This is an extremely efficient home heating option.
Benefits Unique to Ductless Systems
Ductless mini-split heat pumps set themselves apart from more traditional models in a few ways. First of all, they help you to achieve even greater efficiency in your home, as you can heat or cool only those areas of your home that you wish to. Simply set different temperatures at the different thermostats in various areas of the house. Each corresponds to its own blower. You also won’t have to worry about leaky ductwork wasting energy throughout your home. Plus, there are no air ducts in which pollutants can build up, only to be redistributed throughout the house, tearing down your indoor air quality.
