We’re approaching that time of year when the weather in the Utica area can’t seem to decide what season it is. Sometimes it feels like summer in the sunshine; yet when the wind blows, it still feels like we’re in the middle of winter. This can have you making frequent trips to your thermostat and switching back and forth between your heating and air conditioning systems.
What if instead of using two separate systems to keep your home comfortable, you could rely on one system that offers both heating and cooling?
Mini Split Heat Pumps Provide Heating & Cooling
Mini split heat pumps — often referred to as ductless air conditioning units or simply mini splits — are a little different from the traditional heating and AC equipment you may be used to. These extremely efficient units keep your home comfortable by using refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. In the winter, they absorb ambient outdoor heat and move it indoors. In the summer, they absorb excess indoor heat and move it outdoors.
What’s more is that these systems are ductless. Rather than relying on a complicated system of ductwork to deliver heated and cooled air throughout your home, you install an indoor air handler wherever you want targeted heating and cooling.
The Benefits of Mini Split Heat Pumps
Wondering how you could benefit from installing a mini split heat pump system in your home? Mini splits offer a wide range of benefits, including:
Reliable comfort during in-between seasons
Year-round heating & cooling with one system
Targeted conditioning where you want it
Increased energy efficiency
Reduced annual heating & cooling costs
How Can I Use Mini Splits Inside My Home?
Since mini split systems feature an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air handlers, installed wherever you need targeted comfort, a mini split system is extremely customizable.
Install one mini split in a hard-to-condition room
Do you want to keep using your existing heating and air conditioning systems, but have one room in your home that is impossible to keep comfortable? Maybe you have a three season room that feels more like a “one season” room, or maybe your bedroom doesn’t feel like the luxurious master suite you’d like it to be.
Rather than relying on space heaters and fans to keep your hard-to-condition rooms comfortable, simply install a mini split heat pump, with one indoor air handler exactly where you need it.
Install multiple units for a whole-home solution
If your heating and air conditioning equipment are nearing the end of their lifespan, and you’re looking for a more efficient way to keep your entire home comfortable, you might consider switching to a whole-home mini split heat pump system. Your heat pump installer will help you determine where to install your indoor air handlers for a whole-home comfort solution.
