We’re seeing more and more folks start to install ductless heat pump systems in their home, like Mitsuibishi’s Hyperheat system. These systems don’t require your home to have a central heat or air conditioning system, but they can work with whatever your current heating and cooling solution is to achieve pinpoint comfort in those hard to cool areas, ranging from master bedrooms, bonus rooms, sun porches, and breakfast rooms that are often sunny, inviting areas of the home, but can easily get hot and uncomfortable as well. The ductless systems add the option to cool and heat an area with the touch of a button, and do so quietly- one of our customers described it as whisper quiet- 19 db (decibels). To compare, the sound of someone breathing from a meter away is usually 25 db, a normal fan often runs 30-35 db and most window air conditioners, if installed properly, are around 50 db, and normal conversation is usually 60-65 db. Ductless units can also cool a larger area than window air conditioners for the same BTU rating, based on its efficiency as a heat pump system.
Better yet, the technology used in the ductless systems are incredibly energy efficient and saves money on energy bills in the long run. The Mitsubishi ductless systems are cheaper to operate than traditional air conditioning units. This makes adding comfort to your home an affordable investment that saves you money every month in energy bills.
If you have areas of your home that are hard to cool and heat, consider looking into the ductless “mini-split” solutions available to create additional zones of comfort within your home. Besides adding unprecedented comfort with pinpoint control just where you need it, you’ll save money by not having to heat or cool the full rest of the house to get the comfort you need right where you need it.
