What is a Heat Pump and how does it work?

A heat pump—also called a mini split or a mini split heat pump—is an exceptionally safe, efficient and clean heating and air conditioning system that uses the process of refrigeration to heat and cool your home. Operating at roughly 1/2 the cost of oil and 1/3 the cost of propane and electric, it maintains such high efficiency compared to other systems because it does not use eletricity to generate heat, but instead relies on the refrigeration process. Electricity is used to turn on and run the motor and fan, and the refrigeration process is reversed to provide heating for your home.

Heating

Mini Split Heat Pump systems provide the most efficient heating while keeping the temperature int he home consistant from ceiling to floor. Temperature can be adjusted by wireless remote or an app on your phone. Airflow direction and fan speed can also be adjusted to meet your specific needs. All of this is achieved at about 1/3 the cost of propane and electric heating and about 1/2 the cost of oil.

Air Conditioning

Mini Split Heat Pumps provide exceptional air conditioning in a convenient and easy to operate system. Unlike traditional A/C units, your heat pump will be quiet and efficient, keeping your home a constant temperature throughout ensuring your family is cool and comfortable all summer. This is achieved at about 1/2 the cost of window AC units.

Dehumidification

Mini Split Heat Pump systems can dehumidify the air in your home by using Dry Mode. Switch the mode on your wireless remote or wifi app to remove moisture and make it more comfortable on those hot and humid days. This will also reduce the chances of damage and mold caused by excess moisture in the home.

Air Filtering

Mini Split Heat Pump systems are a great way to help keep the air in your home clean. There are filters inside the indoor unit that allow dust and air particles to be removed as the air passes over them.

Save Money Year-Round!

The most efficient heating & Cooling system

Cold-climate heat pumps deliver heat efficiently and affordably even at very cold temperatures, and work best when maintaining a constant temperature. Unlike older systems, there’s no need to turn your heat pump down at night, and doing so may actually cost you money.

In a typical Maine home, the savings potential is between $300 – $600 per year!*

*Energy cost based on average usage in a typical Maine home. Heating savings assumes oil at $2.73 per gallon, propane at $2.67 per gallon, and electricity at $.16/kWh. Boiler efficiencies are assumed to be 83% – 86%, as determined by the Efficinecy Maine Residential Baseline Study. Heat pump performance is is based on the most popular single unit in Effiency Maine’s HESP Program operated according Effiency Maine’s User Tips.

Cost to heat and cool your home

At about 1/3 the cost of propane and electric, and about 1/2 the cost of oil, high-performance heat pumps can save you hundreds of dollars every year.

The perfect heat pump for the best comfort.

Perfect temperature, perfect humidity, perfectly clean and fresh, just the way we like it. And it’s all happening inside where we work, play, sleep, and truly live. 

With Daikin heat pumps, we aim to make the air inside as refreshing as the outside. Better comfort, control, efficiency, and quality so you can create your own unique ecosystem. And every day is perfect, inside and out.

Our personal favorite brand, Daikin systems push more air than others, keeping the temperature consistant throughout the home from ceiling to floor. They are whisper quiet and provide color and style options for the indoor wall units. The multi systems have more BTU capacity, making it easier to add a third indoor head in the future. Daikin RXL and MXL models that we install are rated to -13°F without the use of a pan heater, and will continue to operate down to -32°F, just not at full BTU capacity.

AIR INTELLIGENCE™ built inside

A better understanding of how people inhabit their living spaces has led to products designed to create indoor environments that help use energy more effectively. Heat pumps extract or reject heat from the outside air, even in cold weather. They use an electrically powered compressor and are extremely effective at heating and cooling any house or apartment. Daikin heat pumps are quiet and discreet, and use state-of-the-art technology to keep your energy bills low. With a Daikin heat pump, a large portion of the energy used to heat or cool your home comes from the outside air, a free and infinitely renewable resource.

HEAT PUMP MAINTENANCE

Don’t forget to clean your filters!

Your heat pump filters need to be cleaned at least once a month to maintain optimal air quality. You can remove the filters by lifting open the front of your heat pump and gently pulling them out. They can be vacuumed clean or you can shake them off outside to remove the dust.

They also may be washed. Just remember to remove any snap-on filters before washing and allow them to dry before re-inserting into your heat pump. If your filters are left to get covered in dust, this will restrict the air flow to and from your heat pump. The air temperature in your home will struggle to remain constant and your heat pump will have to work harder to maintain your desired temperature. This will result in higher electric costs. So please remember to clean your filters at least once every month. 

Keep up with your Annual Fall Cleanings

Heat Pumps need to be cleaned professionally at least once a year for optimal heating and cooling operation and maintaining cost efficiency. It is best to have them cleaned in the fall after AC season to ensure they operate at peak performance through the winter or to clean them before turning them off in seasonal homes. Having your heat pump cleaned every fall will ensure your coil and fan assembly are free and clear of dirt and dust. This will allow your heat pump to maintain efficiency, saving you the most on your heating and cooling bills.

A dirty coil will struggle to provide adequate heating and cooling for your home, resulting in higher electric costs. A clean heat pump will distribute clean and safe air throughout your home.
