Are you thinking about installing a new cooling system in your Virginia home? A mini-split heat pump is a great choice. Ductless mini split systems are highly efficient, and they cool just as well as a traditional air conditioner.
Mini-split heat pumps use electricity and a substance called refrigerant to move heat from one place to another. When set to cooling mode, heat pumps absorb heat from the air inside your home and release it outside. This is called heat exchange, and it’s the same process that an air conditioner uses to cool your home.
The difference between mini-split heat pumps and air conditioners is that heat pumps can reverse the process. When set to heating mode, a heat pump will absorb heat from the outside air and transfer it into your home. This is an extremely effective heating method that can help you save energy and money.
Because you can use a mini-split in the summer and the winter, you get double the value out of these powerful heating and cooling systems.
Mini-split heat pumps and air conditioners are both energy-efficient cooling systems, but mini-splits have many additional benefits that make them a better choice than central air conditioning for many homeowners. Ductless heat pumps:
Have both heating and cooling settings
Can be installed anywhere in your home
Are perfect for adding heating/cooling to garages, sunrooms, and basements
Make it easy to create “comfort zones” in your home
Are ideal for homes that do not already have ductwork
