Recently we spoke with a customer who was quite surprised to learn that ductless heat pumps filter the air. With the great benefits of comfort and energy efficiency, air filtration is often overlooked. Many ductless heat pumps come standard with not only dust filters, but also anti-allergen and deodorizing filters. The prospect of keeping harmful allergens and food and pet odors out of your indoor air can make a ductless heat pump system a great option for your home or business.
Each brand of ductless heat pump has its own unique filter, but they are similar in a couple of ways. First, they are really easy to clean. Simply washing or vacuuming them once a month is usually all it takes. You simply lift the cover up on the indoor unit and slide the filters out. Either vacuum, or wash and dry the filters. Reinstall them and you are good to go for another month.
The second nice thing about ductless heat pump filters is that they are not only inexpensive but also reusable. Some manufacturers suggest you replace them once a year and others say the filters should last for years. Following the manufacturer’s guidelines is the best recommendation, but a visual inspection during cleaning is also a good indicator of when to replace them. When it does come time to replace them, most filters are inexpensive and easily ordered directly from the manufacturer either by calling or ordering on line.
With the variable speed inverter technology, which is built into all ductless heat pumps, these units are made to run continuously and rarely stop moving air throughout your home. This means that high tech filtration is taking place all the time, helping keep the air in your home clean and odor free.
