Mini-Split Heat Pumps: Keeping You Cool And Warm?

cool and warm heat pump new york

A mini-split system is a great and efficient way to cool your home if you don’t have ductwork installed – but that’s not the only trick it has up its sleeve. A mini-split heat pump system can be a great source of supplemental heat, too.

Mini-split systems are a no-brainer update to window cooling systems, but they could also replace your portable space heaters, providing high-efficiency, year-round climate control.

The benefits of a mini-split heat pump system:

The ability to heat and cool your home is just one of the benefits that mini-split heat pump systems offer compared to other home comfort options. Ductless heat pump systems are also:

  • Easy to install – Ductless systems can be installed quickly and cost-effectively just about anywhere in your house, including in new home additions and rooms with no windows. All it takes is a narrow pipe to connect your indoor wall unit to your outdoor heat pump, requiring a three-inch hole through an external wall.
  • Flexible – Several indoor wall units can be operated from a single outdoor unit, giving you the ability to size match your system to the heating or cooling load of each room and provide a cost-efficient whole-house solution.
  • Healthier – Since there are no ducts in a mini-split system, harmful microorganisms and other allergens can’t grow and thrive – a big advantage for your health, especially in homes where people suffer from respiratory ailments.
  • Unobtrusive – In addition to being whisper quiet, a mini-split won’t take away your window view, or be an eyesore in your living space. Most can be tucked on a back wall or above important sight lines in your room.

You’ll be home more than usual in the coming months – if you want to keep your cooling and heating bills low while staying as comfortable as possible, consider upgrading your window air conditioners and space heaters to a multi-function ductless mini-split heat pump from Black Bear.
