Ductless Heat Pumps Create a Huge Impact in Tiny Homes
In the last decade, tiny homes have become more and more popular and they remain ideal for various ventures such as minimalist homes, vacation rentals, glamping, and housing for guests. Ductless heat pumps are the perfect solution for heating and cooling small dwellings, as they feature compact space, efficiency, and the ability to reduce one’s carbon footprint.
Every inch matters in a tiny home, so each item (stationary or portable) needs to be carefully considered and, if possible, compact. Ductless heat pumps require zero duct work and just a 3” hole to run the refrigerant line from the indoor and outdoor units. The noninvasive assembly is helpful as small dwellings typically don’t have room for the installation requirements of traditional heating and cooling systems. Set-up is relatively quick and easy, the units are visually unobtrusive, and one system is all you’re likely to need.
Tiny home dwellers will appreciate the multi-faceted efficiency of our heating and cooling systems; they are ultra-quiet, improve allergy symptoms, combat indoor wildfire smoke, and have close to zero energy loss. Ductless heat pumps also dehumidify more effectively than standard central air conditioners, resulting in less energy usage and increased cooling comfort. Air circulation in a tiny home is incredibly important, and our systems are well equipped for the task. With a multi-stage filtration system, our customers report greatly reduced symptoms of seasonal allergies. Additionally, air scrubbers can be added to the units to eliminate up to 99.9% of airborne bacteria and viruses.
Many residents of tiny homes have a strong desire to reduce their carbon footprint. A ductless heat pump uses less raw material than traditional HVAC systems and does not require the burning of fossil fuels. It also has the smallest carbon footprint of any type of heating system. Our nearly zero-emission systems run entirely on electricity while simply transferring heat from one place to another, achieving close to zero energy loss, and reducing utility costs by 40%–60%. Ductless heat pumps also increase home values by about 7% and typically pay for themselves within just a few years of use.
Tiny houses continue to gain popularity for their minimalist qualities, cost effectiveness, and low impact on the environment. To learn more about how our ductless heat pumps pair perfectly with these unique homes, submit a request or give us a call at 360-321-4252.
