More homeowners in all regions of the U.S. are discovering the advantages of ductless heating and cooling. Keep reading to explore the many advantages of a ductless heat pump system for your new home or remodel project.
Advantages of a Ductless Heat Pump
Traditional HVAC systems must be large enough to heat and cool the entire home from one large indoor air-handling unit (AHU). In contrast, ductless heat pumps are sized and installed room by room (i.e. zone by zone), which offers many advantages for comfort and energy savings.
- Zoned Comfort: The indoor AHUs are independently controlled, which allows you to heat and cool each zone separately as you please. You may design a ductless system to provide supplemental conditioning for room additions, remodeled rooms, home offices and anywhere else in your home. Ductless systems may be configured to provide primary whole-home conditioning, too, which may be practical in regions with moderate winter weather.
- Efficiency: Everyone wants lower energy bills, which is one of the excellent advantages of a ductless heat pump. Not only are ductless systems energy-efficient by design and configuration, the components which make up a ductless system offer sophisticated operation, system monitoring, which drives super-heat/super-cool heat exchange. For instance, the combination of a digital-inverter compressor and electronic expansion valve (EEV) deliver precise amounts of high-efficiency refrigerant to maintain optimal comfort and efficiency.
- Indoor air quality: Select ductless heat pump systems provide on-board filtration components that rival just about any room air-cleaning machine. A three-phase filtration process neutralizes odors, removes particulates, and provides a blue-enzyme anti-bacterial filter to capture bacteria, germs, viruses and allergens.
- Mounting: Ductless system AHUs may be mounted on the surfaces of walls, ceilings and the floor. You may also install the indoor AHU inside ceiling and wall cavities for a smooth traditional HVAC system look. The outdoor cabinet, which houses the compressor/condenser and other components, may be discreetly installed more than 100 feet from the farthest AHU.
