Ductless heat pumps are all the rage these days, and it’s easy to see why! Small but mighty, these energy-efficient systems deliver reliable heat where and when you need it, helping you save energy and stay comfortable. Here are the top six reasons why homeowners throughout the Shenandoah Valley—from Harrisonburg and Staunton to Waynesboro, Broadway, and Elkton—are going ductless this winter:
Conserve More Energy
Unlike traditional residential heating systems that create heat, ductless heat pumps use electricity to simply move it from one place to another. This makes them one of the most energy-efficient heating systems on the market and will help you conserve energy.
Lower Your Heating Costs
Thanks to their highly efficient operation, ductless heat pumps can heat your home using less energy than other types of heating systems, so making the switch could help you lower your heating costs significantly.
Say Goodbye to Leaky Ductwork
Without proper sealing and maintenance, ductwork is highly prone to leaks, which can lead to wasted energy and drive up your utility bills. No ducts means no leaks, so you can save energy and money!
Heat Hard-to-Heat Rooms
Since they don’t need ductwork, ductless heat pumps can be easily installed in any room, so you can finally get some heat into your drafty mudroom or chilly basement without spending a fortune on new ductwork.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Ducts are the perfect place for dirt and dust to accumulate since you can’t easily clean them. Your conditioned air passes through your dirty ducts on its way to circulate your home, and you end up breathing in all of those contaminants. With a ductless heat pump, your conditioned air comes right out of the air handler, so you can breathe cleaner, healthier air.
Get Heat Where You Want It
The indoor component of your ductless heat pump can be installed anywhere in your home, so you can decide exactly where to put it and take total control over your home comfort.
