Ever since you moved to Mount Juliet, Tennessee, you’ve tried to cut utility costs by improving energy efficiency in your home. You’ve developed efficient habits and stopped inefficient ones, but you still feel like there’s more money to be saved. By installing a ductless heat pump unit, homeowners can take their energy efficiency to new heights, bringing greater comfort and savings to their home.
What Makes Ductless Heat Pumps Different?
To understand the benefits of a ductless heat pump, we first need to explore what sets these units apart. Standard central heating and air systems rely on a duct network to move air throughout a home. Ductless heat pumps, on the other hand, extract heat from the surrounding air and deliver it into the rooms of your home without the use of ducts. The process is reversed when it comes time to cool the air in your home.
Unlike standard HVAC systems, which need separate AC and furnace units, ductless heat pumps also are a two-in-one heating and cooling system, capable of switching functions depending on your needs.
What Makes Ductless Heat Pumps Energy Efficient?
Many homeowners install ductless systems because they’re one of the most energy-efficient types of heating and cooling systems on the market. The primary factor in that efficiency is the lack of ducts. While duct networks do an excellent job of distributing air, they can also be a source of air leaks. Those drafts force the unit to work harder to maintain comfort, which reduces energy efficiency and increases utility costs. Since a ductless unit blows air directly into the living space, it uses less energy and doesn’t waste air.
Ductless heat pump units can also improve the overall energy efficiency of your home by only devoting resources where they are needed. You can place ductless air handlers anywhere in your home, allowing you to personalize comfort and efficiency.
