Californians are increasingly interested in reducing home energy use through efficiency and electrification measures. As a result, many are turning their attention to mini split heat pumps for efficient heating and cooling.
Because of the climate around Davis, Dixon, and Vacaville, California, most properties are well-qualified to add one or more heat pumps. If you’re curious if your home is prepared for heat pump installation, you’ve come to the right place to find out—Greiner is your local expert for all things mini split heat pumps.
First, How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Heat pumps are more efficient than typical air conditioners because they move heat, rather than create it. Mini splits, a type of heat pump, are made up of an interior air handler with a fan and evaporator, an exterior compressor, and a refrigerant line running between the indoor and outdoor units.
To cool your home, a mini split finds and collects heat in your home’s air, and moves it through the refrigerant line to deposit it outside. To heat your home, it works in the opposite direction, collecting trace amounts of heat from outdoor air (even in freezing temperatures!) and moving it into your living space. The Greiner experts know how to install the best heat pumps in California to help you achieve impressive home comfort!
The Benefits of a Mini Split Heat Pump
When considering an upgrade to efficient heat pumps in California, there are a few steps you can take to maximize the benefits of these systems.
Greiner highly recommends that you maximize the efficiency of your home prior to installing any mini splits, as a more efficient home will need fewer units to maintain preferred comfort settings. It’s easy to upgrade your home’s efficiency with attic insulation and air sealing from Greiner!
