Ductless Heat Pumps vs. A Conventional
Heat Pump System
When it comes to figuring out the best way to heat your home in Phoenix Arizona, there are several things to consider. Efficiency is one, as is affordability. But what about the different kinds of heat pump systems? And Phoenix Arizona AC installations?
Luckily, Phoenix offers many options when it comes to the different kinds of heat pumps and heat pump systems. Using ductless heat pumps is an attractive and efficient option since it does not require the use of air ducts. Instead, they are comprised of an outdoor unit and an indoor air-handling unit, which is connected through a refrigerant line. The indoor units are usually mounted on a wall and the outdoor ones on the ceiling. A line runs from the outside unit to the indoor one. The best part is that ductless systems use 25% to 50% less energy than electric resistance and forced air systems. Having a ductless system is a very good option for those seeking a “greener” approach to living while at the same time lowering energy bills.
You may also opt for a conventional Phoenix Arizona heat pump system, which is less energy efficient, but equally affordable. In this system, the heat pump is made up of a compressor and copper tubing. In winter, the liquid in this system turns from a vapor into a liquid. The heat is then released and is used to warm the house. If you’ve used the conventional heat pump system in the past, but would like to switch over to ductless heat pumps, the process is quite simple.
As you are deciding which option to go with, keep in mind that conventional heat pump systems often lose as much as 35% efficiency due to air leaks whereas ductless systems distribute air evenly, increasing efficiency by 25%.
Whatever you decide to go with, be sure to do all your research and find an option that works for you and your home. Just remember you will be using these pumps for decades, so choose an option that fits you.
