Upgrading Your Home Heating System? Consider Ductless.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Although cooler fall weather brings welcome relief from the high temperatures of summer, most home owners don't relish the thought of facing high heating costs. Most aging gas furnaces are very inefficient, and even though they may run constantly during cold weather, your house may still not feel warm enough. If you have been thinking about upgrading your heating equipment, now is a good time to consider switching to a ductless heat pump. Ductless systems are efficient, quiet and provide considerable winter energy savings so that you can enjoy a comfortable home without the high utility bills.

Why Choose a Ductless System?

A ductless heat pump cools your home during the summer months and helps to heat your home in the winter. A ductless system offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Unparalleled Energy Efficiency – In a multi-zone system, a ductless heat pump provides the right amount of heat for each zone in your home. You can raise the thermostat in areas that require more heat and allow unused areas to remain cooler. In addition, Mitsubishi Electric's INVERTER technology regulates the compressor speed, which allows for a more efficient system, lower operating costs and greater winter energy savings.
  • Better Indoor Air Quality – Because no ductwork is involved, a ductless system doesn't harbor dirt, debris, dust and other indoor air pollutants. As a result, your family will enjoy better indoor air quality, and you may even notice an improvement in your respiratory health.
  • Quiet Operation – Unlike a conventional heat pump or furnace, a ductless system operates quietly and is hardly audible. This makes it ideal for family rooms, dens, game rooms, nurseries, bedrooms or other areas that can benefit from having a quiet heating system.
  • Easy to Retrofit – With no ductwork to install, a ductless heat pump can quickly and easily be retrofitted to just about any home or commercial building. In most cases, you can have your new system installed in one day. This makes it ideal for room additions, garage conversions and older homes and buildings without space for ductwork.

Tax Credits for Ductless Systems

In addition to all of the other benefits, energy-efficient Mitsubishi Electric ductless systems qualify for tax credits and other rebates. The popular 25C federal tax rebate was reinstated at the beginning of the year but is currently set to expire at the end of 2013. Under this program, a homeowner can qualify for a tax credit of up to $300 by purchasing and installing a qualifying heat pump or other energy-efficient HVAC product. The tax credit can offset the cost of buying your new heat pump and having it installed. You can learn more about the 25C federal tax rebate and other incentives by speaking with your accountant or local Mitsubishi Electric contractor.
