We’ve talked a lot on our blog about how air sealing and insulation are the first two steps towards a healthier, more efficient home. While these upgrades generally form a solid base for home performance, there are other things that can be done in order to ensure an uptick in energy efficiency. One type of product that comes to mind is the mini split heat pump, which has taken the industry by storm over the past handful of years.
Unfamiliar with mini split heat pumps? Here are a few things you need to know about this remarkable technology.
What is a Mini Split Heat Pump?
Ductless mini split heat pumps operate via a 2-part system, one of which sits outside of the home and the other inside. The two units are connected by copper tubing filled with refrigerant, transferring cold or warm air to the inside of the home. Its two-part design makes installation a breeze, as mini splits are non-invasive and keep a low profile.
Why are so many people embracing mini split heat pumps? The benefits are impossible to ignore and include the following:
- Enhanced Home Comfort
- Less Reliance on Traditional Heating Systems
- Reduced Energy Bills
- Improved Indoor Air Quality
- Increased Energy Efficiency
- Installation Flexibility
One of the biggest benefits associated with mini split heat pumps is the ability to install them practically anywhere in the home. This makes mini splits the ideal technology for rooms that have been difficult to properly heat/cool or simply don’t feature ductwork already in place. While mini splits are typically used as add-ons, in some cases, they can actually fully replace traditional heating systems.
