Some myths do not last longer as they are based on common misconceptions. Like there are some common myths about ductless heat pumps and HVAC systems. These misconceptions are based on misinformation and lesser knowledge of this modern technology. This article is based on correcting these misconceptions. Here are some common myths that need to be reviewed again in the light of truth.
The first myth that needs to be busted is that heat pumps fail to heat properly in colder climate. But in reality ductless heat pumps can easily be used as alternative to furnace heat pumps. Ductless heat pump heating capacity is exceptional as it provides heat at 5 o F outdoor ambient. Water boiled heat furnace consume more energy and provide less heating while on the other hand ductless HVAC system ingest less energy and produce more heat.
Keeping in view the size of the ductless HVAC there is a misconception that ductless HVAC spot heat or cool. However, the size of the ductless is misleading as even and efficient cooling and heating is the ultimate goal of ductless technology. With ductless heat pumps cold spots can completely be avoided.
One more myth that is mentionable is that ductless heat pumps are only suitable for new built houses. But in reality while ductless heat pumps provide ultimate heating and cooling to newly built houses these ductless HAVC systems are similarly appropriate for existing houses. Ductless heat pumps can be installed in consort with central heating system or furnace system to maximize the heating capacity along with energy efficiency.
This is a very strange notion that all the ductless mini-splits contain the same features and work on the same technology. This is totally wrong. There are systems that only provide cooling. Some ductless systems work on inverter technology while the latest ones contain state of the art DC inverter technology. The same applies on the features each and every ductless HVAC possess. It all varies on company specifications and quality merits. Do your research in the market and you will come to know how varied the features and technology can get in choosing a ductless HVAC system.
As ductless HVAC mini-split systems are used throughout the year for fulfilling cooling demands and heating needs that is why people have a perception that constant working decreases its life span. But the truth is entirely the opposite. Ductless mini-split heat pumps sustain less wear and tear than conventional heating systems and furnaces. With proper maintenance they can last for twenty years or more and work as cooling system as well as heating system and do not break down easily. This makes ductless heat pumps sustainability a lot longer than central HVAC.
The most ridiculous myth about ductless split systems is that min-split heat pumps look unattractive and decrease the value of the space. It is totally vice versa as ductless heat pumps are available in sleek and attractive designs and colours that can enhance the beauty of the environment. Heat pumps easily merge in the overall ambiance and add value to any room.
It is a rumour that ductless HVAC system spread bacteria and germs that are harmful for human health. The people who help in spreading these baseless rumours are oblivious of the fact that latest HVAC systems contain antibacterial filters that prevent the dispersal of allergic substances in the air and rigorously improve the air quality. The inbuilt dehumidifying system actively eliminates humidity in the air and makes the environment germ fee.
The last but not the least common myth is that ductless heat pumps are more expensive and increase your budget. While considering this point people often forget the costly ductwork that involves in the instalment of central heating and cooling system and after that a long expense list of cleaning and maintaining the ducts. In comparison to the central HVAC system ductless are little expensive but after the installation the maintenance expense is minimal. Most of the ductless heat pumps come with long lasting washable filters and no professional assistance is required for their cleaning. And after that with home care ductless HVAC needs service only twice annually. The energy savings from ductless HAVC system is a bonus advantage that cannot be ignored.
Thus, these myths are misleading and ductless heat pumps are an advantageous investment to make to acquire complete comfort and control of indoor climate of your house.
