Is a Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump Right for My Home?

In this blog post, we are going to talk about if a ductless mini-split heat pump is right for you, and the benefits of installing a heat-pump in your home!

The cold winter weather is fastly approaching, and you need to start thinking about how you are going to keep your home warm this winter. There are many things to take into account when deciding how to heat your home, and a ductless mini-split heat pump might be the perfect match for you.

Imagine sitting down on a cold winter morning, enjoying a cup of coffee in a cozy living room heated by your brand new mini-split heat pump. That dream is an easy reality when you install a mini-split heat pump in your home. Once you have decided a ductless heat pump is right for your home, you need to know which heat pump is right for you. Determining where you should install the system in your home, and learning about the cost-saving benefits of installing a heat pump, are important factors to consider in making your decision.

At Reliable Heat Pump Services, we offer heat pump solutions in Newfoundland, and our experienced certified heat-pump specialists can help find the right heat pump for your home. When looking for the right fit, we strive to make sure you will be getting the most out of your heat pump system, while also saving money on your energy bill.

Our goal is to save the customer as much money as possible while making your home comfortable and cozy.

Before installing a ductless mini-split heat pump, you need to know what they are and if they are the right fit for your home. A ductless mini-split heat pump is an efficient way to heat and cool your home. They can be installed in new or existing homes, require less work than traditional heating systems, and require no ductwork in your home to be installed. These systems are practical for heating homes of varying sizes and give you the flexibility and control of the heat in your home. 

Ductless mini-split heat pumps allow you to heat the areas in your home you use the most instead of wasting energy throughout areas of your home that you use less frequently. Ductless mini-split heat pumps offer you a variety of benefits including: 

  • Taking up very little space
  • Easily installed
  • Cost-effective
  • Long-lasting
  • Provides AC for warm months & heat for the cold months
  • Temperature can be adjusted with ease of a remote control

While there may be an initial upfront cost to install a ductless mini-split heat pump, they pay themselves off abundantly throughout the years. With rising energy costs, heat pump systems are becoming more popular. They offer a more efficient and cost-effective way to heat and cool your home, however, determining which heat pump is right for you can be difficult.  

A mini-split heat pump can be installed in any home, but you want to ensure that it is a cost-effective decision. Your final decision on having a mini-split heat pump installed might come down to the benefits of energy consumption versus the cost of installing the unit. If the payback period extends beyond the lifespan or the most efficient years of the system's life, a heat pump may not be cost-effective for you.

The payback period is the period it will take to pay back the money you spent installing the unit through the energy savings on your power bill.

Not every space is cost-effective for a mini-split. There are several factors to take into consideration. You want to get a rough idea of how much heat is being consumed to take care of a particular space. To do this you need to look at the area the heat pump will be serving as well as the area(s) it will be supplementing. Supplementing your heat pump refers to the spaces in your home off the main area where the unit is placed that the heated and cooled air will travel or migrate to.

Heat pumps are most cost-effective when placed in the largest area of the home. Installing your heat pump in the largest area allows the heat to migrate from the open space the unit is located to help supplement other areas of that space. For example, if your heat pump is in the main living area, the heat can migrate to rooms in the surrounding areas (kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms).

The main floor of an open concept two-story home is an example of excellent placement. Not only will you be heating the main floor, but the heat will migrate to the top floor to help supplement that floor as well.

If you are unsure if a heat pump is right for your home, we can help you! We offer heat pump solutions in Newfoundland and can send a certified technician to your home to meet with you. Our technicians will assess your space and discuss what you are looking for and what areas of your home you want hot or cold air. We can then prepare a quote and offer you our recommendations.

There are distinct differences between a single zone system and a multi zone system. A single zone system can only take one indoor unit and tends to have better performance and efficiency ratings. A multi zone system is an outdoor unit that can have multiple indoor units depending on the model / capacity.

With respect to the single zone systems, the rebate is being offered on their high-efficiency LZAS1 (standard) and LZAH1 (hyper) single-zone models. These units are among the most efficient single-zone systems on the market. If you're in the market for a heat pump, or maybe it's been in the back of your mind for a while - this is a great opportunity!

Energy efficiency and savings are the big buzz of this limited time offer. Receiving a rebate on your units will help you save money while making your home more comfortable. Our energy-efficient products are energy star approved and are sure to be the focal point of your next home renovation.

There's a small stipulation in order to qualify - the unit must be installed prior to November 13, 2020. We do book up quickly the closer we get to the end date so keep that in mind! You can contact us today to book your quote and get the ball rolling. Don't put it off because you don't want to miss out!

On top of all those savings, in case you didn't know, Reliable Heat Pump Services Ltd is an Elite dealer for Fujitsu products. As an elite dealer, Reliable Heat Pump Services Ltd can offer all clients a 12-year part, and 10-year labor warranty!

In addition to this limited-time rebate and warranty offer, Reliable Heat Pump Services Ltd is offering a 10% discount for installation. These combined offers can save you up to $500.00 off select high efficiency single zone products!

If you are looking for a heat pump solution, or need any assistance with your current heat pump please do not hesitate to contact Reliable Heat Pump Services Ltd.

Pre-Heating Maintenance Inspection from Reliable Heat Pump Services Ltd.

August 14th, 2020

This summer we have enjoyed sunny, 30 degree days and you have probably thought “I should really make sure my heat pump is working properly.” No, just us? We at Reliable Heat Pump Services Ltd. absolutely recommend that you take advantage of the clear days to inspect and maintain the equipment which you will rely on to keep you warm all winter long.

Regular heat pump preventative maintenance will maintain your unit’s efficiency, operation, and overall comfort and air quality. Whether it's an indoor or outdoor unit, checking in on your heat pump while the temperatures are warm is far more convenient than assessing the issue in the snow! The frequency in which service repair and maintenance should be done on a heat pump often depends on the model and age of the heat pump. Customers often wait until they notice a problem with their heat pump system, or find that something is not providing the heat that it once did.

At Reliable Heat Pump Services we recommend that all models five years old and older receive an annual maintenance check performed by accredited professionals. This is a service that we offer throughout the year, however, we do advise that all preventative maintenance checks on heating pumps are made no later than the fall to avoid discomfort in the winter. As this is done in the warmer months, we call this a “Pre-Heating Maintenance Inspection.”

Conversely, August is usually when we see our warmest weather! If you feel like your heat pump is not cooling your home as much or as effectively as you would expect, we can do a maintenance check on it anytime!

During a heat pump inspection, our technicians will check over the entire HVAC system to make sure everything is operating within the designed specifications. They will inspect the refrigeration circuit and check for any wear, tear or damage on any components, and make sure your heating and cooling needs are met with ease.

Before booking a service, we always recommend that you check to ensure your indoor unit air filters are clean in a mini-split system, or that the return/furnace filters are clean in a central system. We also suggest double-checking your thermostat/controller to make sure the settings are correct. If this has been done and you are still experiencing issues or discomfort – call us!

We service all makes and models of heat pumps regardless if we were the original installer.

To book a service appointment or inquire about pricing, give us a call at 781-1870 or send us a message!

Stay tuned for more information from our HVAC professionals in future posts on maintaining your heat pump. We will also be discussing some common issues we hear from customers giving some tips as we head into the colder weather.

At Reliable Heat Pump Services our goal is to save the customer as much money as possible while making your home comfortable. Certified refrigeration / HVAC technicians with extensive knowledge about heat pump systems. We thrive on clean installation practices from an aesthetics and system reliability standpoint. We offer free consultations and quotes to inform customers about heat pumps and their advantages while also providing recommendations on what will suit them best. We also perform heat pump system energy audits to ensure your heat pump is being controlled and functioning properly so you're saving as much money as possible. We offer a wide range of quality central ducted and ductless (mini-split) systems with great warranties to back them. We're on Newfoundland Power's list of Certified Installers. This means we can offer financing to eligible customers. We service what we sell along with what we don't sell!

In early June the Provincial Government, in conjunction with the Canadian Homebuilder’s Association – Newfoundland and Labrador (CHBA-NL), announced a new rebate program geared towards residential construction and renovation. This initiative aims to help re-energize the economy and to help Newfoundland homeowners save money on new construction and renovation projects in existing residential dwellings. To support this goal a rebate program has been created and will benefit many clients who currently work with, or plan to work with, Reliable Heat Pump Services Ltd.

The CHBA-NL currently provides a list of eligible renovations and we have some good news for you as heat pump installations are included!

  • The rebate is 25% on residential renovation projects.
  • The maximum rebate is $10,000 (25% of a $40,000 project).
