The ductless heat pump is one of the most important innovations in HVAC in recent years. Ductless heat pumps are a highly cost-effective solution for heating or cooling your home. Ductless systems, also known as mini-splits, eliminate the need for ductwork, run quieter than most systems, and are the most popular option for most homes today.
Why Ductless Mini Split Heat Pumps?
Innovative inverter technology makes ductless heat pumps more precise than traditional HVAC systems. As a result, they are incredibly efficient in cold weather climates like Bend, Oregon. This split system offers heating and cooling features while providing temperature zone control for every room in the house.
Mini-splits come in single-zone and multi-zone units. Single-zone mini-split systems are great for one common area, such as a single room or garage. Multi-zone mini-split systems are ideal for heating several rooms or zones in a residence. But which ductless option is best for you?
A Single-Zone Mini-Split Works Best In Small Spaces or Single Rooms
There are many uses for a single-zone mini-split. They are ideal for individual rooms such as garages, new home additions, workspaces, or additional dwelling units. In addition, tiny homes with limited square footage can get by with a single-zone heat pump depending on the size.
Single-zone mini split heat pumps include an indoor and outdoor unit. A copper line set connects these units. Homeowners also have several indoor unit styles to choose from, including cassettes. A mini-split heat pump will increase your home’s energy efficiency and lower your electricity bill.
A Multi-Zone Heat Pump Covers Larger Spaces or Multiple Rooms
If you have more than one room to heat in your home, using a multi-zone heat pump solution is best. Multi-zone heat pumps consist of one outdoor unit and several indoor units. These are ideal for larger homes with multiple rooms needing heating or cooling solutions.
Unlike a single-zone system, a multi-zone system requires more accessories for each indoor unit. Keep in mind that multi-zone mini-split systems allow you to regulate the temperature in each room individually, maximizing the comfort of each room.
Instead of using the single setting of a fixed-speed, ducted system, multi-zone heat pumps adjust to variable conditions in the space. This allows homeowners to save on costs and enjoy more control.
The Inverter Technology of Mini-Split Heat Pumps Can Reduce Energy Consumption By Up To 30 Percent
Single and multi-zone heat pump systems enjoy favorable SEER ratings for their energy efficiency and state-of-the-art technology. These units hardly make a sound and offer an impressive output for their size. Compared to traditional ducted systems, these units are known for reducing energy consumption by up to 30 percent, saving homeowners a lot on their monthly costs.
Ductwork is an inefficient way to heat most homes because ductwork can leak air and requires the energy use of forced air to operate. Instead of moving air through ductwork, multi-zone ductless heat pumps don’t require pre-existing infrastructure in a home to begin heating. As a result, they use less energy to heat the same space without relying on the components of a forced air system.
