Amazing Solar Powered Homes

One of the first things that I did when I moved into my new home was start looking into my options for solar power. I’m a big believer in reducing dependence on natural resources that are unsustainable, and one of the best ways to do that is by using natural resources that are sustainable, like sunlight. I was thrilled to have my own home that I could customize with solar power. I found that there were all kinds of options for solar power besides those big clunky solar panels. I eventually settled on solar shingles for my roof, and I’m looking into solar powered windows, too. I started this blog to share more information about solar trends with people who are as interested in sustainable energy as I am. I hope to help you understand how contractors can help with these large projects!

5 Reasons To Invest In A Ductless Electric Heat Pump

Is it time to replace your old and worn-out heating and cooling system? A good option to consider as the replacement is an electric heat pump that is ductless. There are numerous benefits that you will have by opting for a ductless electric heat pump that will make you happy with choosing it as a replacement. In this article, you will learn about the benefits that are included with a ductless electric heat pump for your heating and cooling needs.

1. No Worrying About Air Seeping Out Ducts

When you have a heating and cooling system that routes air through ducts, a portion of the air can seep about before making it through the vents. For instance, it is possible for the duct fittings to become loose and allow air to seep out. It is also possible for the ducts to become cracked. You can count on getting the full extent of air from a ductless electric heat pump.

2. Your House Will Be Less Humid

One of the perks of a ductless electric heat pump is that it can dehumidify each room that it warms up or cools down. You won't have to worry about moisture from humidity causing mold to grow in your house. Decreasing humidity levels in your house is also a great way to protect wooden floors and furniture.

3. No Risk Of Incomplete Combustion

A ductless electric heat pump will completely get rid of the risk of incomplete combustion occurring. With heating and cooling systems that use gas, it is possible for the pilot flame to not receive enough oxygen to produce carbon dioxide. You can then end up with toxic carbon monoxide in your home.

4. The Air Quality In Your House Will Be Better

There is no risk of dust accumulating in a ductless electric heat pump that can end up circulating in your house.  Heating and cooling systems that use air ducts can get dirty and need to be cleaned to keep the indoor air quality in a good condition. You don't have to spend money on duct cleaning with a ductless electric heat pump.

5. Installation Will Be Easy For Contractors

Your labor costs will be affordable with a ductless electric heat pump as the task is not too complex for contractors. There will be no need to destroy drywall and rebuild it around air ducts. A ductless electric heat pump will only require that small holes are drilled for running pipes through.
