Whenever my heating comes on, the thermostat has to drop a couple degrees below our designated temperature.
The heating system will run until it reaches the designated temperature.
Throughout that time, there is a draft flowing through the house as the heat blows from the air vents. Once the designated temperature on the thermostat has been reached, the heating shuts off. This is the same process we have when we have the air conditioners turned on. With ductless heat pumps, the heating or air conditioning is running at a consistent mid to low speed. This provides a more constant temperature and there is less of a hot or cold swing between cycles. The homeowner needs to keep in mind that a heat pump works differently than a furnace. Therefore, the heat pump needs to be operated differently. If you learn the way to use a heat pump and follow what the directions suggest, you can keep your home at the perfect temperature. Unlike with a regular furnace or air conditioning unit, there shouldn’t be a need to set a ductless system’s thermostat back, when not at home. They have high-efficiency equipment means you will get better savings and more stable temperatures without needing to make any changes to the thermostat. Homeowners may want to set the thermostat back when they are on vacation, but it should never be reduced by more than 3 degrees Fahrenheit. Under any circumstances, the thermostat should never go below 62 degrees. Temperatures less than 62 degrees can cause mildew to grow. You no longer have temperature swings with the ductless heat pump systems, but steady and comfortable heating or cooling without any drafts.
