Did you know that ductless heat pumps not only heat and cool your indoor air, but they also filter it? With all the benefits of comfort and energy efficiency, air filtration is a bonus that is often over looked. Many Ductless Heat Pumps come standard with not only dust filters, but also anti-allergen and deodorizing filters. The prospect of keeping harmful allergens and food and pet orders out of your air makes Ductless Heat Pumps a great option.
Each brand of Ductless Heat Pump has its own unique filter, but they are similar in a couple of ways. First, they are easy to clean. Washing or vacuuming them once a month is usually all it takes. Simply lift the cover up on the indoor unit and slide the filters out. Either vacuum, or wash and dry the filters. Reinstall them and you are good to go for another month.
The second nice thing about the filters is that they are inexpensive and reusable. Some manufacturers suggest you replace them once a year and others say the filters should last for years. Following the manufacturer’s guidelines is the best recommendation, but a visual inspection during cleaning is also a good indicator of when to replace them. When it does come time for replacement, most filters are easily ordered directly from the manufacturer either by calling or ordering online.
With the variable speed inverter technology, which is built into all Ductless Heat Pumps, the unit rarely quits moving air throughout your home. This means that high tech filtration is taking place all the time, helping keep the air in your home clean and odor free.
