A Ductless Heat Pump is a whisper quiet, high-efficiency heating & cooling system for one room or your whole house. A typical Ductless Heat Pump system consists of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, mounted high on the wall. We can connect up to eight indoor units to one outdoor unit. They are connected by copper refrigerant lines. Each indoor unit is controlled by its own remote thermostat, allowing you to control the temperature for each room, independently.
Today’s technology offers highly efficient options to heat your home. Long ago the caveman used firewood to heat their caves because the dinosaurs hadn’t died yet, therefore fossil fuel was non-existent. Many cavemen probably died from carbon monoxide poisoning, but they saved a lot of money on their heating bills (and insurance). But seriously, we have come a long way. I have installed thousands of high-efficiency heating systems for Connecticut homeowners. A Ductless Hyper Heat system is a high efficient Heat Pump, which also provides the highest efficiency Air Conditioning for your home, all combined into one system. Now there will be no need for using those noisy, ugly window air conditioners anymore!
A Ductless Heat Pump will provide economic relief for homeowners that heat with electricity. A pilot program from the Connecticut Utility Companies was conducted to test the feasibility of using Ductless Heat Pumps in comparison to a home where electric heat was the primary heating source. The evaluation estimated significant savings (between 30% and 60%) as well as reducing the summer air conditioning electrical consumption.
Additionally, the majority of Ductless Heat Pump users are very satisfied with the quality of the heating and cooling.
Heat pumps, with the recent technology advancement, are much more efficient today, so their total energy costs are lower than oil, propane and natural gas.
In the past, Heat Pumps had a bad rap in colder climates, like Connecticut, but the newer technology allows the heat pump to heat your home more efficiently than any other conventional furnace or boiler, even in colder climates.
You also never have to worry about a dirty chimney, smell of oil or gas leaks.
Traditional oil and gas heating can be an expensive way to heat your home, so you should consider adding a ductless heat pump to dramatically offset the cost… Everyone else is. If you heat with oil, LP or gas, you are probably spending between $1000 and $2000 annually on heating oil, and possibly more based on fluctuating fuel prices.
To upgrade your old heating system, four options generally include:
