People of Massachusetts have used and tested a variety of heating and cooling solutions for their homes. One that rises above everything else is the ductless mini-split heat pump system. These systems are designed to withstand both low and high temperatures.
You will be able to make your home comfortable during harsh winters and humid summers while saving precious energy and keeping bills low.
You stand to reap the benefits this system offers whether you decide to have it as an add-on to your existing system or using it as a primary one. But what are the exact benefits it offers? Here are several reasons to consider using a ductless mini-split heat pump system.
Very easy to install
There is a reason ductless mini-splits systems are called that. Most often, they don’t require ductwork to function correctly. This is a pretty neat perk because it makes the installation straightforward and fast. Not to mention that no ducts mean that the entire procedure is unobtrusive.
So what does a ductless mini-split system include? With one of these systems, you will get a condenser that is installed outside of your home. Additionally, you will also get air handlers. The handlers are there to provide cool air in the summer and heated air in the winter.
Pay Attention to the AC Size
Getting an AC that’s either too big or too small will have a negative impact on your energy bills and comfort levels.
An AC that’s too small will need to run constantly to keep your home as cool as possible. You won’t be able to turn it off during the night, nor will you benefit from any energy-efficient features like two-stage cooling. Ultimately, your energy bills will be much higher.
Getting an AC that’s too big isn’t a great idea, either, even though it may seem like it would work better. Air conditioners work by cooling the air (thus lowering the temperature) and eliminating high humidity levels.
In most instances, a larger AC will quickly lower the temperature in your home, but it won’t be able to remove the humidity as fast, so you’ll end up with uncomfortable, damp air.
Fortunately, there are many AC BTU calculators you can use to determine the right AC size for your home.
Custom-tailor temperature throughout your home
Imagine if you had the option to custom-tailor temperature throughout your home hassle-free. Instead of having a too hot bedroom to go to, you can have a cozy living room and a cool bedroom for a good night’s sleep. A ductless mini-split system can help you do it. You can have precisely the temperature you want for every zone in your house.
It improves the comfort of your home and saves energy, especially in the long run. A ductless mini-split system achieves it through air handlers which you can have in different rooms.
Highly efficient heating and cooling solution
Ductless mini-split systems are pretty simple to understand. They use the power of electricity to move the heat. They are built to use as little energy as possible and to be highly efficient whether you use them for heating or cooling.
Paired with the proper home insulation, they provide the best results. They are also built to minimize heat loss which furthermore improves their efficiency.
Reduced overall heating costs
When looking for a way to reduce heating costs during winter, people are most interested in achieving it without sacrificing comfort. Ductless mini-split systems can help you reduce your heating costs while ensuring that your home is comfy even during the harsh winters.
These systems work with all sorts of heating solutions ranging from baseboard electric to natural gas-fired boiler systems. In terms of savings, a ductless mini-split system delivers the best results when it is used for the entire home heated by an electric baseboard system. Plus, you can save even more because the Massachusetts Mass Save® program offers you a rebate when purchasing a ductless mini-split system.
However, the rebate amount depends on the efficiency of the system. How do you choose the best system in terms of efficiency? Feel free to give us a call at Neeeco, and we will provide a no-cost home assessment so that you can make an informed decision.
