The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) signed by President Biden in August 2022 aims to build a new economy that helps working families. These actions will push to switch households and companies over to clean energy, save American households up to thousands of dollars a year, and tackle the climate crisis in the United States. Switching and installing certified energy-efficient systems can put money back in Americans' pockets through tax credits and rebates. These tax credits cover a wide range of home energy-efficiency improvements, including equipment like heat pumps, air conditioners, heat pump water heaters, doors, windows, insulation, and more.
Ductless mini-split heat pump systems have been taking the HVAC world by storm due to their versatility and energy efficiency. Plus, they can function as all-in-one systems for both heating and cooling your home. But if you're looking to install a new HVAC system in your home -- a big investment -- you might have some reservations. We're here to bust the seven biggest myths when it comes to ductless heat pumps, so that you can learn more and have peace of mind before installing one of these systems in your home.
With the U.S. continuously looking for ways to save energy and reduce the use of oil and gas, heat pumps have recently taken center stage. Heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to air conditioners and furnaces, as they are able to provide both heating and cooling. You read that right -- heat pumps can suck the hot air out of a room and remove it outside, then reverse the cycle and absorb heat energy from the outside air to bring into your home.
When deciding upon a new or upgraded HVAC system, especially in a home with no current air conditioning system, many factors come into play. For example, if you have a boiler with no AC, should you replace your boiler and add bulky ductwork, or should you invest in Mitsubishi Hyper-Heat ductless (or ducted) mini-splits?
Hyper-Heat is a newer home heating system designed by Mitsubishi. It’s the perfect home comfort solution for a range of homes and sizes, and has the advantage of being both a heating and air conditioning system that also doesn’t rely on ductwork.
