The Pacific Northwest contains the perfect climate for heat pump systems. With moderate temperatures that not never drop below freezing or rise to the level of sweltering, all you may need to keep your home comfortable is a heat pump system with a single indoor unit.
Heat pumps come with three main components:
- The indoor unit
- The outdoor unit
- The remote control
Unless you’re utilizing a heat pump system for a multi-family residence, you’ll only need one outdoor unit to power your system with as many indoor units as you need. Larger homes may require multiple indoor units to keep their interior temperatures comfortable, but a moderate-sized, single-family home may need only one.
Heat Pump Installation
One of the clearest benefits of heat pumps is their lack of ductwork. That makes installation much easier as there’s no need to make room for bulky and expensive ducts. Typically, the only adjustment that a home needs to make is drilling a small hole to allow various cords and wires to connect the outdoor unit to the indoor ones.
However, it’s still important to have the licensed and insured professionals at The Heat Pump store handle your installation, even if it’s as part of our DIY assistance service package. Our experienced installation technicians are factory trained to handle all of the heat pump system models we sell, and they’re well experienced in resolving common and uncommon installation issues.
Since safety is of the utmost importance whenever you’re installing a new appliance, it also makes sense to have our skilled team install the necessary wiring to get your heat pump system up and running. They can test the system before leaving to ensure there are no issues and answer any of your questions.
Benefits of Heat Pumps
A heat pump system offers a variety of benefits over traditional heating and cooling systems. As mentioned earlier, the lack of ducts is a key upgrade of the heat pump system. That’s because ducts are a common reason behind the inefficiency of many heating and cooling systems.
Ducts require regular cleaning, but many people put off or ignore that maintenance entirely. This means that dust, dirt, and dander can build up within the ducts then be blown throughout your home whenever the system is turned on. For those with allergies or other respiratory issues, this can be a nightmare.
Ducts are rarely sealed perfectly. That means that much of the conditioned air created by traditional heating and cooling systems doesn’t actually make it through the vent and into your living spaces. Instead, the air escapes. This causes your system to run for longer and at higher settings to get your home’s temperature exactly where you want it.
