When I was consulting an HVAC technician about upgrading my HVAC, he presented me with so many options.
It ended up coming down to different styles of heat pumps. I live in an area where the winters aren’t so bad but it can get pretty hot in the summers, so heat pumps are highly recommended. As a matter of fact, many of my neighbors have heat pumps. I just wasn’t sure if I wanted to go for a regular heat pump or a ductless one. The HVAC professional pointed out that the ductless heat pumps are more energy efficient. It’s mostly because you lose a lot of energy when using ductwork. There can be leaks, rips, and naturally you will have energy loss. Of course, the cleaner the ductwork is and if you keep it sealed properly, you’ll experience minimal energy loss. Because I didn’t really want to be hassled about the ductwork cleaning and ductwork sealing anymore, I thought it would be better to go for the modern ductless heat pump. I was pleased with the installation and I’m even more happy with how well this new system works. It’s way more energy efficient than my last central HVAC system, and I’ve honestly never seen the energy bills so low. At first I thought I was just looking at an estimate, but the actual readings showed a record low amount of energy use in my home after using this new ductless heat pump. Even when I showed how much I was saving with my buddies, they were saying they had to make this type of upgrade too so they could get in on these incredible savings!
