The Advantages of Ductless Heat Pumps

With global warming being one of the leading causes of water pollution, there are an ever-growing need for efficient heating systems, and ductless heat pumps (Ductless Air Conditioning) can be one of the most cost-effective options.

A common scenario for using a ductless system is cooling a large server room. In this instance, a ductless unit for cooling would obviously work better with only low-cost cooling than a more expensive ductless heat pump unit. As with most ductless air conditioning sales, there are a number of companies that can give customers the option of purchasing a ductless heat pump unit (or ductless mini splits) that meets their needs.

For businesses that do not have ductwork in the Canada, or do not wish to invest in a new duct system in the Canada, a ductless air conditioning system can still be installed. This can be done by a professional air duct cleaning company, or a do-it-yourselfer with some basic tools. The benefits of ductless cooling are that there are no ducts involved, so there is no dirt to worry about. No worries about freezing pipes that can lead to burst pipes and costly repairs. Also, ductless air conditioning can provide instant chilled water temperature, eliminating the need for constant operation of an ice-box. And, if there are leaks in your existing air ducts, ductless mini splits can often be a temporary fix; they can also be an upgrade to a more permanent duct system.

These units are also much quieter than other types of ductless systems, which can be an important benefit for businesses where noise can be an issue. Some homeowners with small or ductless heat pumps might think they do not need an air conditioning system. However, these systems can be a cost saver over the long run. With the ductless heat pump, less duct work is needed. Less duct work means less time and money spent on duct installation and less duct waste (which means more money in your pocket). The air conditioning unit is much more energy efficient because the compressor does not have to work so hard to cool off the hot air in the winter, and the condenser coil is not in the furnace.

When considering the purchase of a ductless air conditioning or ductless heat pump, be sure to research all your options. Look at the pros and cons of each option to determine if it will be right for your business. Also check into the warranties of both types of ductless air conditioners to ensure you are getting what you pay for. Although the price might be attractive now, be sure you get what you need and for the long term.

Ductless units are much cheaper than their gas counterparts and are excellent for small offices, condos, rental homes and small offices in general. They take up very little space and can be moved without incurring any additional costs. The units are also quiet – they don’t make any noticeable noise when in use and are very unobtrusive in a room. This type of cooling is great for allergy sufferers and people who have trouble hearing or seeing fans, and for anyone who simply doesn’t want to be disturbed by a noisy fan. If you are trying to save money, consider purchasing a ductless heat pump for your office.

These types of cooling units provide a very high-tech form of temperature regulation. You get instant temperature feedback with this indoor unit and can set your desired temperature for the whole day. The beauty of this technology is that there is no more guessing as to the indoor temperature and the unit continually monitors the temperature, while only using power when it’s necessary. This ensures that there is no ice on the condenser coils which can result in very high electric bills. These ductless systems are very efficient, safe, and quiet.
