Mini-split heat pumps are a fantastic choice for many homes. They offer the flexibility of being able to both cool and heat your home. They are extremely efficient and one of the most cost-effective heating options available on the market today. For all their benefits, many have never even heard of this type of HVAC system. Cascade Energy Services provides summer mini-split heat pump tune-up and preventative maintenance in Northgate. We want to share information on mini-splits so you can decide if one is right for you.
Is a Ductless System the Best Option?
Ducted systems are widely used, but they have their flaws. The air has to be cooled or heated before it gets pushed through the ducts. That takes energy, and some of it is absorbed by the ductwork. Dirt, dust, pet hair, and other debris can clog ductwork affecting the air quality in your home. With a ductless unit, the air comes directly from the unit. A mini-split heat pump system bypasses ductwork. Benefits of a ductless system include:
- Bypassing ductwork makes a mini-split HVAC system more efficient
- Extremely flexible
- Specific temperature control is easy
- No fossil fuels are used
- No carbon monoxide worries
Should You Invest in a Mini-Split System?
With all the benefits, ductless systems are becoming more popular. They cost a bit more when it comes to installation, but compared to installing a traditional system without ductwork, the cost is comparable. Recessed units are available if you are concerned about the aesthetics of the unit.
