There are many advantages of installing a mini-split heat pump in your Brighton, IL home. This ductless heating option is especially ideal for homes with additions where it is difficult to expand the existing ductwork.
A mini-split heat pump is comprised of two main components: a compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. Linked to one another by a conduit, the air-handling unit will contain its own thermostat, making it simple and efficient to regulate the air temperature in the room where the unit will be installed. Here’s a look at three reasons you should install a mini-split heat pump.
Easy to Place Anywhere
When installing a mini-split heat pump, you can easily maintain the existing decor and design of the room you are placing it in. The air-handling unit and its components can be affixed to the walls, mounted from a drop ceiling, or even completely suspended from the ceiling. If you prefer, you can even opt for a floor model.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
Did you know ducts can lose up to 30 percent of the heat flowing through them? Not only does this lead to an inability to keep your home at a comfortable temperature level, but it can greatly increase your heating bills. Since mini-split heat pumps don’t require heat to flow through ductwork, this means energy efficiency is greatly increased, which can result in lowering your energy bills.
Improved Heating of Individual Rooms
If you’re looking for a way to heat rooms individually within your home, you’re going to enjoy the effectiveness of a mini-split heat pump. Unlike a conventional heating method that heats the entire home, a mini-split heat pump can be used to heat only the rooms that are being occupied. This benefit of mini-split heat pumps further increases energy efficiency and helps reduce heating expenses.
