So, spring is here and you need a new ductless unit for your home. It’s this time of year that lots of our customers ask us: “What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is a ductless unit that’s capable of both heating and cooling your home. It is designed to transfer heat from one place to another. On warm days, heat is extracted from indoors and transferred outside, while the opposite happens on cold days. Even at temperatures as low as -10°C, heat pumps are an efficient way to heat and cool your home while reducing your carbon footprint and saving you money on your energy bill..

What are the benefits?

Now you know what is a heat pump, but it’s important to understand the benefits.

  1. A heat pump can reduce heating costs by up to 50% compared to electric heating
  2. Heat pumps don’t directly create carbon emissions as they don’t burn natural gas
  3. They run more frequently to help make your home have a more even temperature
  4. A heat pump is a quiet home comfort system as they are designed to promote smooth and quiet airflow
  5. Heat pumps provide air conditioning too, so they can cool your home in the summer

Types of heat pumps:

mini-split is the most common type of heat pump. It means the heat pump is actually located outside of your home, while the air handling unit is located inside. The installation required for this type of heat pump unit is very minimal and is easily done in a few hours.

An absorption heat pump is designed for larger homes (over 4,000 square feet) and operates on natural gas, propane, solar-heated water or geothermallyal heated water rather than electricity.

Heat pumps for existing furnaces:

You don’t need a new heating or cooling system installed in your home to reap the benefits of a heat pump. Some heat pumps can be added to your existing furnace for use during spring and fall. This allows you to utilize much less power while running your furnace during these milder times of the year. A heat pump can help to keep your home more comfortable at a much more affordable price.

When it comes time to think about the way you’ll be cooling your home this year, this ahead to a heat pump solution that will also provide heating in the cooler months.

Spring is right around the corner and for us that means an influx of customer calls and emails all saying the same thing: Fix My Ductless Air Conditioner.

Spring is one of our busiest seasons in the ductless air conditioner industry and it’s in large part to the “fix my ductless air conditioner” requests. So, why do we have so many of these specific requests in the spring?

Why?: Fix My Ductless Air Conditioner

Many clients don’t take proper care of their ductless air conditioners throughout the winter, which can lead to prolonged use without proper maintenance or care. This, as you may guess, can lead to parts wearing down, filters getting clogged, small issues turning into bigger problems or a variety of other issues.

For the most part, it’s important to ensure your ductless air conditioner gets a proper ductless maintenance appointment during the winter. Many of our customers use their ductless air conditioners in the colder months to filter the air in their homes, circulate the air in specific rooms or even to provide cooling if for some reason their house is too hot.

On top of that, if your ductless air conditioner is actually a heat pump you may be using it for supplemental heating in the fall and winter. That means it definitely needs at least one seasonal maintenance appointment to ensure that it’s ready for spring and summer.

Overall, regular maintenance is the best way to avoid repairs to your ductless air conditioners, but if you do end up needing repairs you’ve come to the right place.
