Because my beach house lacks conventional ductwork, managing heating plus cooling is difficult.
One of our greatest problems was constantly the bedroom area.
The big windows make the room suppose freezing. Our Wintertide weather is especially severe. The two of us get temperatures down into the downside digits plus require heating for more than 6 weeks of the year. At a single point, the people I was with and I installed a pellet stove to heat the bedroom. It was constant work plus created mess plus fumes. The pellet stove would periodically go out plus blow freezing cold air. The stove was big, ugly plus the people I was with and I needed to arrange the furniture to accommodate it. The two of us updated the pellet stove with a ventless gas heater; My complaint with the ventless heating system was that it created a movie on the windows. It also could only operate at maximum capacity. The heating system would run until it reached the desired temperature plus then shut off completely, creating unpleasant temperature swingsâ€¦ Just recently, the people I was with and I finally installed a ductless heat pump. That has been a big improvement. The heat pump maintains an ideal plus consistent comfort level at all times. It provides both heating plus cooling, helps to eliminate excess humidity plus filters contaminants out of the air. Because the ductless component transfers existing heat between the indoors plus outdoors, rather than burning fossil fuels, it is especially environmentally friendly, safe plus energy efficient. I like that I have a cordless remote that allows myself and others to raise or lower temperature, adjust fan speed plus decide the direction of airflow. Plus, the ductless heat pump is far more charming than any of othe other opportunities we’ve tried. The air handler is mounted up high on the wall where it is out of the way plus unobtrusive.
