"Heat Pumps" Archive
If you’re a homeowner in Kansas City, chances are that you’ve been using a ducted system.
These systems use ducts and vents to send cool and warm air through your home. They’re effective systems that have been used for decades.
However, there’s another option that just might change everything:
Ductless mini-split systems.
We’ve partnered up with Daikin, a company that offers some of the industry’s best warranties on ductless mini-split systems. If your new system doesn’t meet your expectations within one year after installation, they’ll be happy to resolve the issue at no cost (and that’s on top of a 12-year warranty).
That all being said, there’s plenty of reasons why you might want to switch from a ducted system to a ductless one:
Many homeowners look for ways to save when it comes to home improvement projects, and the DIYers in us may consider skipping the installer and look to install a heat pump system, mini-split or split system, to help improve the comfort of their home, or support their HVAC system to get air conditioning in different locations.
When it comes to a new heat pump, homeowners may save dollars on the heat pump installation if they DIY the install, saving on the heat pump installation costs and keeping the money by saving on the HVAC technician’s time.
There are many aspects of a heat pump installation that are far and above the average DIY home improvement project. Condensate drain lines, refrigerant and refrigerant lines and the specialty tools that HVAC contractors have such as vacuum pumps to work with those, as well as skilled work typically left to electricians such as running power from the circuit breaker to the unit, will all be involved when putting an indoor unit in like a mini split heat pump.
This makes having a professional installer come out to install this new type of air conditioner very appealing. By using a local HVAC company like Climate Control, not only do you have the assurance that your air conditioning will work when you turn it on and match the room to your thermostat setting, but possible additional warranty, safety, and peace of mind are often better than being frustrated at complicated installation instructions
The obvious advantage to a ductless mini-split is that there is no ductwork that needs to be run, using hole saws to go through walls or ceilings or floors, as well as the apparent ease of installation.
Regardless of what type of heat pump you look at, there are a few differences in the way heat pumps operate than typical air conditioning and heating systems.
Don’t you hate that feeling where, just as though it seems you have everything running smoothly, something else breaks down? Or bursts into flames? Or blows up? It’s a common feeling for a lot of homeowners, and we want to do our part to reduce that feeling for you as much as possible.
Of all the things you could have broken down on you during the winter season, your heat pump is probably at the top of the list of the most inconvenient ones. The best way to make sure that that doesn’t happen is to schedule maintenance for it, even if it has already received maintenance this year.
Maintaining your heat pump system (as well as cooling systems, indoor units and outdoor units) by having a professional heat pump service can be a cost-effective way to keep your system running smoothly and keep energy consumption as low as possible, and checking off the items of your heat pump maintenance checklist can see you through the winter months.
