Combined Heating & Cooling Systems
Why Buy Two When One Will Do?
Correct Temp offers you two exciting home comfort alternatives:
- Ductless air systems
- Air source heat pumps
Both are designed to heat and cool your home and yet there are important differences
between the two.
Ductless Air System | Ductless Mini-Split
Let’s say you’re adding a room that your central air or heating systems can’t reach. Or, you already have a room that isn’t air conditioned (but does have heat), but you’d like it to be with something other than a portable or window air conditioner. Or, you have a hot water boiler but no central air system and you’ve been told your home doesn’t have and can’t support the necessary ductwork.
There you have three very practical and common uses of ductless air systems. Each system consists of:
- At least one outdoor heat pump or condensing unit
- Each condensing unit connects to up to 5 wall-mounted air handlers that take the place of both the ductwork and air exchanger that are integral parts of central AC systems. With ductless air, you don’t need either.
- Each wall-mounted air handler features remote control operation for individual room temperature controls systems provide all the comfort of central air or heating systems, but without the duct work.
Ductless air systems are also super quiet, extremely energy efficient, and come with built-in filters.
But perhaps its best feature of all is that you can use ductless air in conjunction with your current heating and/or cooling systems OR as a whole-house alternative for both. That’s flexibility to the core.
Air Source Heat Pump | Heat Pump Heating & Cooling
How can you tell the difference between a heat pump and a central AC system? Well, from the outside, you pretty much can’t. That’s because they both have an outside condensing unit…although that’s pretty much where the similarities end.
An air source heat pump, just like a ductless air system, is a combined heating and cooling system. One we can install in your home for your family’s year-round comfort and convenience.
How do they work? A heat pump pulls heat from the air in the winter and directs it indoors to help keep you warm and cozy. During the summer months, it acts in reverse by pulling excess heat from inside your home and releasing it outdoors to help keep you cool and dry.
An air source heat pump is more energy efficient than separate cooling and heating systems, and easier to maintain since it’s one system vs. two.
