How to Cool a Room Without Air Conditioning?
Looking at a ten day summer forecast here in El Dorado Hills and the Sacramento area can have you feeling a little...sweaty. The high temperatures this summer mean not only is it going to be hot outside, but if you don’t have proper air conditioning in your home, it’s also going to be hot inside. Even for those that do have a traditional air conditioner, it may not be enough to reach that one hot room in the house.
If you are looking for a solution to your sweaty summer sorrows, we have found the answer for you: a mini split heat pump (also known as a ductless mini split).
Mini Split Heat Pumps
You may be thinking, “Heat pump? I thought we were talking about making my home colder in this California summer heat”. Though the terminology can be confusing, the home comfort it brings is simple.
A mini split heat pump is a small, two piece unit that can be easily installed in any one room in your home to efficiently provide both cooling and heating. Yes, you read right, it does both. Not only can a mini split heat pump keep you cool and comfortable in the summer heat, it can keep you cozy warm come winter time.
How Does It Work?
Traditional central air conditioners use leaky and bulky ductwork to deliver cold, conditioned air to your home. This can mean you lose cooling power, efficiency, and ultimately money through the holes in your ductwork.
A mini split heat pump eliminates the inefficiencies of a central AC system, by eliminating the need for ductwork. As stated earlier, a mini split is comprised of two pieces: an indoor unit that is easily mounted on a wall, and an outdoor unit. These two are connected with simple power and refrigeration lines. This leads to a significantly more efficient system, which keeps your home more comfortable year round, and most importantly saves you money each month on your energy bill.
Upgrade Your Home Comfort
Whether you are looking to get your home an energy efficient air conditioning solution or you need to supplement your current air conditioning system to finally cool down that one hot room in your home, a mini split heat pump has benefits year round. The installation experts at California Energy Services can get you the right system for your El Dorado Hills or Sacramento area home, so you can start cooling down both your home and your energy bills.
