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