My house has always been a terrible place to heat and cool.
Some of the rooms have an insufficient number of vents to give enough airflow to keep ideal comfort.
A few of the rooms aren’t even connected to the duct system. Since I was unwilling to fix up the oil furnace and a/c or reconfigure the whole duct system, I looked into some nicer and low cost alternatives. I simply wanted to improve the comfort of a couple of the rooms and maybe reduce utility costs a bit. I didn’t want to demolish the walls, take out a big home improvement loan or deal with a lengthy project. A little hunting online led me to ductless heat pumps. These systems consist of a small outdoor component that links to one or many lighter and more streamlined indoor air handlers by way of a conduit. The only needs are bracket capabilities, access to electricity and a several-inch hole in the exterior wall to accommodate the conduit. Since the conduits are around in extensive line lengths, there’s great versatility in the location of the indoor air handlers. Every indoor air handler includes an independent thermostat that allows personalized, room-by-room temperature control. The system functions quietly, provides both heating and cooling capability and is very energy efficient, and utilizing adaptable speed technology, the compressor is able to on its own adjust capacity to meet the exact requirements of the certain room. By running at reduced speeds for increased cycles, it maintains consistent comfort and minimizes running costs.
