Understanding the Efficiency of Wall-Mounted Heat Pumps: The Perfect HVAC Solution for Montreal's Climate

At AirGreen, we understand the significance of comfort and energy efficiency in your home. We know how important it is for our Montreal clients to find the perfect solution to maintain a comfortable indoor environment, regardless of the season. That's where wall-mounted heat pumps, or mini-splits as they're commonly referred to, come into play. They are a versatile, efficient, and economical choice in the field of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC).

  1. What Is a Wall-Mounted Heat Pump or Mini-Split?

Wall-mounted heat pumps are a type of HVAC system that can provide both heating and cooling from the same unit. As the name suggests, these systems are typically installed on an interior wall, connecting to an external unit through a small hole in the wall. Their dual functionality makes them a practical solution for Montreal's variable weather, offering comfort in both hot summers and cold winters.

Unlike traditional central HVAC systems that force air through ducts, mini-splits are ductless systems. They have two main components - an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. These are linked by a conduit housing the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain.

  1. The Benefits of Wall-Mounted Heat Pumps

Energy Efficiency

One of the key benefits of wall-mounted heat pumps is their energy efficiency. By transferring heat rather than generating it, mini-splits use less energy than traditional HVAC systems. They also avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork, which can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic.

Zoned Comfort Control

Wall-mounted heat pumps offer the unique advantage of "zoning," which means they can heat or cool individual rooms or areas within your home. This feature allows you to customize your comfort in different areas according to usage, and conserve energy in spaces that aren't in use.

Silent Operation

Mini-splits are known for their quiet operation. The noise of an operational traditional HVAC system can sometimes reach disruptive levels, but wall-mounted heat pumps are much quieter, which means you get comfort without the noise.

Ease of Installation

The compact size and flexibility for zoning with a wall-mounted heat pump make it easier to install than traditional systems. Only a small hole is needed to connect the indoor and outdoor units, reducing the likelihood of air leakage or security concerns associated with window-mounted air conditioning units.
