Winter Weather Is No Match for a Ductless Heat Pump
Ductless Heat Pumps Pair Perfectly with Winter
As cold weather advances, ductless heat pumps will keep you cozy while outdoor temperatures drop. Our highly effective systems heat effortlessly, work with your generator during a power outage, provide evenly distributed heat, are highly efficient, and even combat cold and flu season. Let’s explore why ductless heat pumps are the preferred heating system for winter.
Thriving in Frigid Temperatures
Today’s high-performance ductless heat pumps enable homeowners to enjoy year-round comfort while keeping their homes perfectly toasty. We size each home’s equipment to provide adequate heating and cooling even when the temperature outside is 17°F. The hyper-heat equipment we install in many homes has the ability to remain at 100% heating capacity with outside temperatures as low as -13°F, achieved by using enhanced compressor technology. Despite temperatures reaching subzero numbers, our Mitsubishi systems have the technology to collect heat energy from the outdoors and transfer it seamlessly into your home.
Stay Cozy During Power Outages
In the PNW, we are all too familiar with power outages that can last for days, leaving many without warmth during the coldest times of the year. Ductless heat pumps are the perfect solution, as they can be powered by medium or large generators so you and your family can enjoy continuous warmth during unforeseen events. For more information about this topic, read our blog about the benefits of installing a generator with your ductless heat pump.
Evenly Distributing Heat
Traditional heating systems can leave certain areas of a home feeling hotter or colder than others, especially during extremely chilly months. However, ductless heat pumps provide individualized climate zones that can heat an entire home evenly, eliminate hot and cold pockets, and can, therefore, enable one person to enjoy a roaring fire while another naps comfortably in the bedroom.
Efficient and Money Saving
Many Washington residents dread winter months, as cold weather can cause massive heating bills. However, installing ductless heat pumps in your home will decrease utility usage and can create an annual savings of $1,000 to $2,000 in energy costs. Because our systems create close to zero energy loss by simply moving heat from one location to another, they require 40‒60% less electricity than other heating and cooling methods. Furthermore, zoned heating allows you to customize the temperature of your spaces depending upon use, without having to heat or cool your entire home.
Combating Cold and Flu Season
Cooler weather often coincides with cold and flu season, as well as the risk of increased spread of COVID-19. Therefore, it’s more important than ever to have pristine indoor air quality and be free from as many contaminants and pollutants as possible. Luckily, our mini-split system ensures that your home air quality remains supreme. With a multi-stage filtration system, bacteria, pollutants, and allergens are massively reduced so you can stay healthy and breathe easily.
Ductless heat pumps are a wise investment for year-round climate comfort and staying healthy indoors, especially during frigid winter months.
