Most Units are Energy Star Qualified! Since mini splits have little to no ducting, they forego those energy losses typically associated central forced-air systems. Duct losses can easily account for more than 30% of energy consumption, especially if the ducts are not sealed tight or in an unconditioned space such as an attic or crawlspace. With ratings as high as 23.0-SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), these systems are among the highest rated efficiency equipment available anywhere!
Stay warm, stay cool…stay comfortable!
What’s a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is a two part system, an indoor unit called an air handler and an outdoor unit that looks similar to a central air conditioner. A compressor circulates refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat as it travels between the indoor and outdoor units. What’s amazing about a heat pump is it uses the outside air as the heat source. Even when it’s cold outside that air still has heat in it, the heat pump captures the heat and delivers it to the indoor unit.
One of the best things about a heat pump is that just as it can deliver warm air into your home in the winter, in the summer, the process can be reversed and the unit can deliver cool air when it’s hot outside.
Heating with Solar? You Bet!
In the past, heating with solar meant using electric resistance heat which really wasn’t practical due to the amount of electricity you would need to generate heat. Heat pumps use electricity very efficiently to move heat from inside to outside so the heat doesn’t need to be created. A small solar array can give you the extra electricity you need to run the heat pump to provide heating and cooling to your home.
It Heat and Cools but it also CLEANS!
That’s right! The Fijitsu heat pumps that we install feature both an Apple-Catechin Filter and an Ion Deodorizing Filter. The Apple-Catechin Filter absorbs dust, mold spores and microorganisms by static electricity. Growth is inhibited and deactivated by the polyphenol ingredient extracted from apples. The Ion Deodorizing Filter deodorizes by powerfully decomposing absorbed odors using the oxidizing and reducing effects of ions generated by the ultra-fine particle ceramic.
