Why install ductless mini split heat pumps?
In recent decades, ductless mini split heat pumps have become a very popular heating and cooling solution for homes across the United States. They offer a range of features and benefits that most other types of HVAC systems just can’t match.
Ductless heat pump features
Ductless mini split heat pumps are available with a variety of special features. Many can provide cooling in addition to heating, which allows them to function as both air conditioners in summer and heating systems in winter.
In contrast to many other types of heating systems, such as electric baseboard heaters, ductless mini split heat pumps are energy efficient according to Energy Star standards. You can gain even more efficiency by selecting models with inverter features, which automatically scale their output up and down to achieve the optimal balance between comfort and energy use.
And, because ductless mini split heat pumps typically condition spaces on a room-by-room basis, they are zoned by default. That means you can easily set different temperatures for different parts of your home.
When you choose a ductless heat pump system, you’ll enjoy several unique benefits.
One is minimal disruption to your home when installing systems. Because ductless heat pump systems are connected using thin, flexible piping that can be easily run alongside the exterior of your home or through walls, there is no need to gut rooms in order to add ductwork or large pipes.
Heat pumps’ ability to provide both heating and cooling is another benefit. It saves you from having to install and maintain two separate systems for heating and cooling needs.
Another unique benefit of ductless mini split heat pumps is their extremely low noise level. Unlike conventional forced hot air furnaces, or baseboard heaters that make noise as metal expands and contracts, ductless systems are barely audible.
Ductless heat pump units can also be a major part of your smart home setup. Many units come with a Wi-Fi adapter that allows you to control them with a remote control. That means you could adjust the temperature inside your home on your way home from work.
Perhaps the most common reason why homeowners choose ductless mini split heat pumps is that the energy efficiency of the systems translates into savings on utilities, especially when compared to systems that are powered by electric transistors. On top of this, the ability to divide your home into zones can save even more money, because it allows you to avoid wasting energy by heating or cooling spaces that you’re not actively using.
Ductless heat pump systems are also popular for their ability to improve air quality. Unlike forced hot air furnaces, which can blow dust and other pollutants around your house, ductless mini split heat pumps recirculate air from the same rooms that they heat or cool. Because air passes through a filtration system as it enters the unit, more and more pollutants are filtered out as the system continues to run.
Ductless heat pump installation
- Get professional measurements
An experienced installer will measure your home’s conditioned spaces and assess the quality of its insulation to determine how large your ductless heat pump needs to be.
- Choose your heat pump features
Prior to installation, you can select heat pump features like wireless thermostats and remote temperature sensors to tailor the system’s performance to your needs.
- Receive professional heat pump installation
An experienced, licensed installer will provide you with a timeline for system installation. Work will begin on the promised day, and contractors will work quickly and efficiently to minimize disruption to your home.
Our dealers know that choosing the right ductless heat pump can be complicated, and they are happy to answer any questions you may have. Following are questions we receive frequently from customers.
How much does ductless heat pump installation cost on average?
The cost of ductless heat pump installation depends on several factors. The most important is the overall heating and cooling capacity of the system. Smaller houses, as well as houses with thick insulation, require smaller systems.
The heat pump features you choose will impact price, too. Inverter-style heat pumps typically cost more, as do pumps that can perform both heating and cooling. Add-on components like auxiliary heating systems, which can provide extra heat during unusually cold weather, will also increase the cost.
Finally, the complexity of installation is a factor in heat pump installation pricing. If installers need to run refrigerant lines or wiring through interior walls or attics in order to connect outdoor units to indoor units, you should expect to pay more than if the lines can be run directly through exterior walls.
What’s normally included in ductless heat pump installation services?
Services include everything you need to replace an existing heat pump system or install a brand-new one:
- Consultation: An experienced professional will guide you through the types of ductless heat pump systems available and help you determine which one is the best fit for your budget and location.
- Measurement: Accurate measurement is critical for ensuring that heat pump systems are properly sized. Our dealers carefully assess the heating and cooling requirements of your home to avoid under- or over-sizing systems.
- Removal of existing heat pumps: If you already have a heat pump system in place, your installer will remove it.
- Delivery of heat pumps: Delivery and full installation of your new heat pump units.
- System tuning and testing: Our dealers will fine-tune your system after installation to ensure it has the proper refrigerant levels and other settings.
How often do you need to replace ductless mini split heat pumps?
Ductless heat pump systems typically last between 10 and 20 years. Signs that you need to replace your system include unusual noises, poor air flow, and the system taking longer to heat or cool rooms. The failure of the compressor in the outdoor unit also usually requires system replacement.
In addition, homeowners sometimes opt to replace their older heat pump systems in order to upgrade to more energy-efficient models. Today, most heat pumps have inverter features that help them achieve SEER ratings (a measurement used in the HVAC industry to calculate energy efficiency) of 20 or above. Savings on utilities means that it may be cost-effective to replace older systems, whose SEER ratings tend to fall in the range of 10 to 20, even if those systems still function properly.
How long does it take for ductless mini split heat pumps to be installed?
Installation time for heat pump systems depends on how many indoor and outdoor units are being installed, as well as how difficult it is to run wiring and refrigerant piping through the home in order to connect units. The time required to tune the system post-installation is also a factor, especially if contractors need to add refrigerant.
That said, most ductless heat pump installations can be completed in two or three days, or even a single day if the system is small.
