Is a Heat Pump Right For Your Home?

ductless-air-handler-being-turned-on-by-remoteIt is possible to enjoy a nice, cool home in the face of our regularly warm and humid weather. We have the technology! The question that you should ask though is what system for air conditioning in Boynton Beach, FL is the right fit for you.

Air conditioners aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. This isn’t surprising considering people live in all different types of homes. You need to determine what air conditioner is the right fit for your home’s cooling needs. A heat pump mini split system may end up being the comfort solution you’ve been looking for.

What Is a Heat Pump Mini Split?

Heat pump mini splits are split comfort systems that take up less space than a traditional central AC unit. The “split” in the name refers to the system’s setup–it has the usual outdoor condenser unit but the indoor evaporator unit is replaced with an air handler.

This allows the heat pump to function as an effective comfort system that provides powerful cooling throughout the home without the need for extra space.

What Sets the Heat Pump Apart?

So, you may be wondering if a heat pump is anything more unique than a slightly smaller air conditioner. The answer is a big, resounding yes! Here are some of the incredible things that a heat pump offers:

  • Better energy efficiency: One of the best things about heat pumps is that they are extremely energy efficient. This is not to say that central air conditioners are not efficient. However, heat pumps boast a level of efficiency that is a bit above what other systems can offer.
  • Year-round comfort: Yes, you read that right. Your heat pump has the ability to keep you comfortable all year long period and no that does not mean that you were going to just get used to having a cool home in the middle of the winter. It actually means that your heat pump has the ability to both heat and cool your home. This is because heat pumps are able to reverse their flow of refrigerant which means they can pull heat out of your home or put it into your home.
  • Ductless options: Are you hesitating thinking about getting an air conditioner because you know your home does not have ductwork or cannot accommodate it? Not to worry, heat pumps have a solution for that too. You have the option to install ductless heat pumps that do not require ductwork in order to operate.
