Thinking about installing a ductless heat pump in your home? Woodward Heating is here to answer all of your questions.
What is a Ductless Heat Pump?
A ductless heat pump heats and cools a home or space without the need for ductwork. The system consists of an indoor and outdoor unit that work together to efficiently and quietly heat and cool your home or business. The indoor unit connects to the outdoor unit using a refrigerant line and a control wire. The indoor unit is typically mounted in a central part of the home. In most cases, a single ductless heat pump will effectively heat and cool the average home in the Salem, Oregon and McMinnville area.
Will a Ductless Heat Pump Work for My Home?
Ductless systems are ideal in homes with electric baseboard or cadet heaters, manufactured homes, remodels and additions and even residential new homes. Today there are many different options that ductless heat pumps provide. Most manufacturers provide wall mount, floor mount, ceiling recessed and ducted units to enhance the comfort in your home or business. Contact a Woodward Heating representative today to discuss which option is best for you.
Benefits of Ductless Heat Pumps
There are several benefits of purchasing a ductless heat pump for your home or business. A significant benefit of ductless heat pumps is the low cost to operate compared to other heating systems. For example, a ductless heat pump costs $1.13 to heat a space with 100,000 BTUs. Meanwhile, a fuel oil furnace can cost $4.53 for the same heat output. Ductless heat pumps offer a lower cost heating option than most traditionally available heating sources, including gas and electric furnaces, propane systems and wood stoves.
Here are some of the other primary benefits of installing a ductless heat pump:
- Increased comfort level
- Decreased utility bills
- Heating and cooling built into a single unit
- Fast and affordable installation
- Healthier indoor air quality
- Significant rebates and tax credits
Replacing an Aging Ductless Heat Pump
If your ductless heat pump unit is more than 10 years old, it may be time to start shopping for a new unit. Another sign that it is time to replace your ductless heat pump unit is when your monthly utility bills are going up, but usage of the unit is staying the same. Finally, if your unit needs repairs frequently, it may be time for a new ductless heat pump.
