Columbus Heating Tip: Reasons to Consider a Ductless Mini Split Heat Pump

If you’re in the market for a comprehensive heating and cooling option, ductless mini split heat pumps are an innovative and highly efficient approach to your indoor comfort. While they operate on the same heat transferring principle as the heat pump and the air conditioner, ductless mini split heat pumps offer greater versatility and efficiency as a heating and cooling option. If you’re ready to go ductless, call HHR Heating and Cooling today. We can help you plan and install your system, as well as maintain it for years to come.

Here are some reasons to consider a ductless mini split heat pump as your Columbus home’s heating system:

  • No ducts. Whereas conventional forced air systems rely on extensive ductwork to facilitate the movement of cool air, ductless systems use economical and compact air handlers connected to an outdoor unit. These air handlers sit high on the wall or in the ceiling. They are nearly silent when operating and they can often go in places ducts cannot. While ducts often create high moisture conditions detrimental to those who sensitive to airborne allergens, ductless systems avoid such problems entirely.
  • High efficiency. No ductwork means significantly greater energy efficiency. Whereas ductwork can account for up to 30% of heating and cooling loss, ductless systems contain heat transfer much more economically. The result is energy savings. Ductless heat pumps also tend to have high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings than conventional systems.
  • Zone control. Because you can assign a thermostat to each indoor air handler, ductless mini split heat pumps are a great option for homeowners looking to maximize efficiency and customize the temperature of certain areas of the home. When you’re not upstairs, you can turn it off, and enjoy cool air downstairs without any problems. Dividing up your indoor home space into zones often helps you reduce energy costs as well.

Ductless mini split heat pumps are quickly becoming a household name. As a versatile, year-round provider of indoor comfort, a ductless system may be the answer to your heating and cooling needs. For more information, call HHR Heating & Cooling today!
