Why Puyallup Residents Should Consider Switching to Ductless Heat Pumps

October 23, 2018

A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that a ductless system is only useful in the summer, but this couldn't be further from the truth! Today's ductless systems can both heat and cool a home, even with the wet and cold winters we get in Puyallup and the rest of the Washington State area. So why should you think about upgrading to a ductless system? And is it truly an upgrade?

It Works in Puyallup Winter

If you choose to invest in a quality ductless heat pump system, then you're not only getting a solution that keeps you cool during the hottest days of summer, you're staying warm in winter too. Even in the deep winter months like February, which is often considered the coldest month of the year, a quality ductless heat pump will keep your entire home comfortable.

Today's ductless heat pumps are still able to operate smoothly and efficiently in temperatures as low as -15 Fahrenheit. And that means that even when winter is chilling everything outside, the outdoor components of your ductless heat pump can take it and continue to ensure you don't feel the chill in your home.

Save On Heating Bills

One of the nicest perks of a ductless heat pump system is that once you have your home a comfortable temperature, you just leave the ductless running 24 hours a day. It sounds counterintuitive, but ductless systems are actually the most efficient when left at one temperature. Bonneville power administration has proven that not turning down the temperature at night actually saves more electricity, than turning it down at night and then back up in the morning.

Better Air Quality

With a traditional, centralized, ventilation system, contagions and allergens get blown into every room in a home, thanks to the dirty ductwork. This method also means that the filtration system requires you to dispose of old filters and buy new ones to install every few months.

A ductless system has reusable filters that you only need to clean at regular intervals. It takes just a few minutes to wash or vacuum the reusable filters.  No more running to the hardware store for new filters. A few minutes once a month is all you need to enjoy a higher quality of air!

If you have an older heating and cooling system, maybe it's time to upgrade. In addition to more convenience and comfort, you'll also experience increased efficiency, and that will mean lower bills every month when it comes time to pay for your heating and cooling costs!
