I am in our mid fifties, plus for the past couple of years, I’ve been going through menopause. It has completely thrown off our body temperature. I used to constantly feel chilly, plus constantly needed to bundle up in jackets. I tended to bump up the temperature control setting plus run the oil furnace at max capacity for most of the year. Now, I constantly tend to feel overheated. I also suffer from sudden moderate flashes, plus sweat profusely. I’ve finally invested in a ductless heat pump for our living room. The ductless split system is permanently installed on an exterior wall plus provides both heating plus cooling capacity. The upgrade process required no major tear down of walls plus was completed in a single day. I can now regulate the temperature in the living room without impacting the rest of the house. While it’s easy to switch between heating plus cooling mode, I constantly rely on the air conditioner. Fortunately, the heat pump is harshly energy efficient. It runs on electricity plus works by simply moving heat from 1 location to another. In cooling mode, the heat pump pulls heat out of the room plus pumps it outside. For heating, the system simply reverses operation, finding ambient heat outside plus transferring it indoors. The process is clean, safe plus undoubtedly quiet. Because the heat pump features inverter technology, it automatically adjusts speed to increasing requirements. This allows the heat pump to run longer at lower speeds, combating temperature stratification plus energy waste. With the ability to keep our living room super cold, I now sleep so much better at night.
