In a world where natural resources are rapidly depleted, heating and cooling systems need to be efficient and cost-effective. The best way to do this is to choose a ductless heat pump for your home. Ductless systems can provide you with low-cost, high-efficiency heating, and cooling while providing greater energy efficiency than traditional units.
Ductless systems heat and cool air through ductless air conditioning technology. Heat pumps range in energy efficiency from approximately 15 SEER to forty SEER. This is an average rating of the air conditioner efficiency, which refers to how much cooling is done per unit of energy utilized. Like mini-split systems, it is also measured in kilowatts (kW). A more accurate term is “megawatt-hours” (KH) since this often indicates the amount of cooling/heating done per day/night for an entire building.
There are several types of ductless heat pumps currently available for use in Canada. These include ductless air source heat pumps, radiant floor heating, geothermal heat pumps, ductless mini-split systems, ductless convection heat pumps, and attic based air circulation systems. Each of these systems can provide several different services to meet your unique home comfort and energy efficiency needs.
For installation and maintenance purposes, it is highly recommended that you contact reputable heating and cooling professional. A qualified installer will not only offer advice on your new unit but can also ensure your new unit is installed properly by using state-of-the-art technology. Typically, experts in this field utilize a high-pressure gasket and low-flow blower to ensure the proper function of each unit. Ductless heat pump installation professionals use a special air-tight fastening method to prevent air leaks. When coupled with reliable mains and wiring, ductless solutions are the best way to address localized HVAC concerns such as leakages.
Another important consideration is the comfort of your family. Depending on the type of indoor HVAC system you have, the optimal room temperature can vary from one customer to the next. With an air conditioning unit, you want to be able to maintain the comfort level of your family throughout the day. This can often be achieved through the selection of warm air and cooling unit. On the other hand, with an attic-based system, you typically want to minimize airflow to prevent moisture buildup which can lead to discomfort for your family.
The choice of an appropriate indoor cooling unit depends largely on the size of your budget and how much energy you plan to spend on heating and cooling. The most energy-efficient models are usually the most expensive ones. However, if you are looking for the most comfortable, most efficient way to keep your family comfortable, ductless systems offer the ideal solution. Air conditioning costs more upfront, but if you have to replace the cooling unit frequently because of extended periods of cold air or high energy bills, ductless systems can save you money in the long run by lowering cooling and heating costs without sacrificing comfort.
