It’s no secret that the cost of heating and cooling our homes is consistently rising. This has caused many homeowners in the Greater Sacramento area to search for an affordable solution to staying comfortable. Brower Mechanical offers this solution with mini split and heat pump installation throughout Roseville, Elk Grove, Yuba City, and the surrounding areas.
As an all-electric way to both heat and cool your home, heat pumps and ductless mini split systems provide cleaner home comfort that can lower your monthly energy bills, improve your indoor air quality, and more.
How Heat Pumps Work
Heat pump HVAC systems use electricity to provide reliable heating and cooling to your home by moving heat inside during the colder months and pumping it outside during the summer. Because of this, heat pumps use significantly less energy than traditional heating systems. Heat pumps can either move heat through the air, which is known as an air-source heat pump, or through the stable underground temperatures with geothermal, and at Brower Mechanical, we install both.
Heat Pump Benefits
Heat pumps are a great option for homes in the Greater Sacramento area because of our Mediterranean climate. They offer several whole-home benefits, including:
Year-round comfort - Because they can be used to both heat and cool your home, heat pumps can keep your family comfortable during every season.
Energy savings - According to the EPA, heat pumps reduce your electricity usage for heating by up to 65% compared to furnaces and baseboard heaters, boosting your home’s energy efficiency.
All-electric - Heat pumps exclusively run on electricity, which can help you meet your home electrification goals and pair well with your home solar energy system.
Eligible for incentives - Because of their high performance and electric operation, you can save on installation with tax credits and rebates, both federally and through local utilities.
Ducted vs. Ductless Mini Split Heat Pumps
Air-source heat pumps can either connect directly to your home’s central duct system to deliver conditioned air throughout your living spaces or utilize air handlers for ductless comfort. Both ducted and ductless mini split heat pumps have an outdoor unit that acts as the engine for your system and a line of refrigerant as the medium to move heat. Inside, however, ducted heat pumps and mini splits differ.
Instead of connecting to ductwork, mini splits have individual air handlers placed in certain areas throughout your home. Several air handlers can connect to a single outdoor unit and each air handler can have a customized temperature, offering easy home zoning and optimum comfort. Ductless heat pumps also eliminate energy loss and indoor air quality issues that many homes with ducts experience.
Ducted heat pumps, on the other hand, connect directly to your home’s existing duct system. They deliver heated and cooled air to your living spaces through vents, the same way a central furnace or air conditioner does.
How to Choose the Right Heat Pump
The team at Brower Mechanical has over 40 years of HVAC experience, and we can help you find the right heat pump or ductless heat pump HVAC system for your home. We always utilize building science best practices to properly size the unit with your home, to ensure a long lifespan and optimal performance.
In most cases, if your home already has a properly installed duct system without leakage issues, a ducted heat pump is a great option. If your home doesn’t have existing ductwork or areas that your ducts don’t reach, mini splits could be the best option for you.
