What People Are Saying About Their Ductless Heat Pumps
Dec 16, 2019
When Jared and his family moved into their 1919 home, the old electric baseboard heaters left something to be desired. They were inefficient and didn't distribute heat throughout the house, and Jared knew something had to change.
Tired of huddling around the heaters during the cold season, Jared talked to some friends who had a ductless heat pump. He was sold on the idea of comfort and efficiency, and as he researched ductless systems he learned about incentives offered by his electric utility. He contacted installers, got quotes and soon had a new ductless system installed in the main living space. Afterwards, he worked with his contractor to process his utility rebate.
Since then, Jared says the ductless heat pump has transformed the house. Now, his family is comfortable in the winter and in the summer, and since it's so efficient, his electric bill has dropped significantly. In his own words, adding a ductless system is "one of the best things he's ever done in his home."
The old radiant heaters in Kelly's house "looked like giant toasters" — and they didn't work too well. After her family spent their first winter in the home bundled under blankets, she began looking for a more comfortable heating solution. She also wanted a break from high utility bills in the winter.
After talking to friends, she realized that her house was a perfect candidate for a ductless heat pump. She began looking for models that qualified for utility rebates, then contacted installers that would help her take advantage of discounts. Once she settled on a top-rated contractor, she knew she was getting the right system at a good price.
Kelly still remembers the day she came home after her ductless heat pump was installed. When she walked in the door, she felt warm air on her face — which had never been the case with her old radiators. "Oh, my gosh, we made the right decision," she thought.
