Four reasons you should think about a ductless air source heat pump
You may not have considered a ductless air source heat pump to be the solution to your heating and cooling problems, but here are a few things you should consider.
Ductless can supplement your existing system. A ductless air source heat pump can provide spot comfort in areas of your home that your heating and cooling system just doesn’t touch. Whether you have a ducted furnace or a hot water heat system, a ductless system can supplement your existing heating equipment cost effectively.
Ductless is cost effective. On average, US homeowners spend about $900 per year on heating and cooling. That’s about half of a home’s total energy bill. Reducing the amount of energy needed to heat and cool your home makes financial sense, and is environmentally responsible. A ductless air source heat pump can reduce your energy consumption by as much as 30%. That’s a savings of more than $250 per year on average.
Ductless gives you power! A ductless air source heat pump allows you to have precise control over which rooms in your house get heated and cooled. You won’t waste energy heating and cooling areas you don’t use, and your high-use rooms will be comfortable year-round.
Ductless is easy to install. With a ductless air source heat pump, you eliminate one of the most inefficient parts of your heating and cooling system – the ducts! The majority of your energy losses come from your ductwork, so it makes sense to limit your losses, so to speak. A ductless system is easy to install and provides reliable comfort where other heating and cooling systems can’t. They’re great for use in old or historic buildings, commercial spaces and homes of all shapes and sizes.
Ductless air source heat pump technology has been around for about 30 years, and in that time, they’ve proven that they’re up to the task of heating and cooling – even in the New England climate.
