Ductless heat pumps have been rising in popularity in the United States over the past 30 years. Throughout that time, ductless manufacturers have dedicated countless hours to improve the systems’ technology and features. Now, ductless systems are more energy-efficient and easy to operate than ever before. We’re proud to offer homeowners and business owners in Northwest Washington products from two of the leading ductless manufacturers, Mitsubishi and Daikin. Here we explain why Mitsubishi ductless heating and cooling systems are one of our chosen manufacturers.
Why Switch to Ductless?
Switching to a ductless heating and cooling system for your home or business is a great way to get energy savings and comfort year-round. Ductless mini-splits are known for their:
Mini-splits are one of the most eco-friendly heating and cooling systems available. Ductless systems operate using 25-50% less energy than electric-resistance and forced air systems. Because of that, most homeowners see a major reduction in their heating costs throughout the year. And, when properly maintained, the system can last up to 20 years or more.
Area Coverage Versatility:
Instead of delivering air into each room using ductwork, a ductless system is composed of an outdoor compressor connected to a single or multiple indoor air handling units. The outdoor compressor can typically handle having up to five indoor units on one system, which allows a high level of versatility when it comes to comfort coverage. From a single-zone to multi-zone solution, mini-splits can treat anywhere from a single room to a whole home or business.
Due to the lack of ductwork, ductless unit installation is quick and simple. When done by a certified ductless installer, the installation process usually takes about 4-6 hours from beginning to end.
All ductless systems bring energy savings and comfort to your home or business. However, some ductless systems, such as Mitsubishi Electric, are top-of-the-line when it comes to quality and design.
Mitsubishi Ductless Heating and Cooling Features
Mitsubishi Electric is a leading ductless mini-split manufacturer – one whose systems we’re proud to install in homes in Northwest Washington. They’re always looking to improve their technology to lower energy usage and increase comfort. Here are a few features of Mitsubishi ductless systems:
Minimum Energy Usage
Mitsubishi ductless systems are built for high performance and energy efficiency. The compressor in the outdoor unit pinpoints the exact amount of energy needed to heat or cool an area. Because there’s no energy overage, it’s as efficient as possible while providing the level of comfort you need. Some systems even have Hyper-Heating INVERTER® (H2i®) technology, which uses an enhanced compressor system to deliver heat when outdoor temperatures are as low as -13° F. This reduces the need for supplemental heat sources on those extremely cold days.
Advanced Tech Controls
Depending on the Mitsubishi ductless system (your ductless contractor can help you decide which is best for your home or business), some are equipped with top-of-the-line, advanced technology, such as:
- 3D i-see Sensor®: This sensor scans the room to assess if any people are present. If they are, it adjusts the airflow level and direction to maintain comfort.
- Instant Hot Start: Rather than feeling a draft of cold air upon startup, this feature provides warm air immediately.
- Kumo Cloud®: Whether you’re out for the day or simply feel a little chilly, you can adjust your mini-split from your smartphone or tablet. You can also check your filter’s status.
