I am thinking about adding a ductless heat pump to my home. I want to put the heat pump plan in my kitchen. My living room is the floor above the kitchen too. I want to extend the heat pump upstairs. This way I can having heating and cooling in my room and the kitchen. Those are the only two rooms that I actually need anything. The kitchen has a gas fireplace for heating in the Winter season. The kitchen is too far from the gas furnace though. The heat pump would give that little extra kick of heating in the Winter season. Also, my living room never has access to the fireplace, right now I am getting by with a space heater. I guess a heat pump would be more powerful, efficient and less of a danger. A space gas furnace sucks up electric and also can actually catch on fire. In the Summer the heat pump will be needed too. The whole house gets so tepid and I don’t have any air conditioner. I actually only want to have cooling when I sleep at night and when I cook. The heat pump could provide cooling just in the precious times I cook indoors. Then, every night, the A/C would be turned on in my room. The actual purchase of the heat pump and HVAC upgrade would be a lot. But, the use of the heat pump would be nothing. I hardly need the heat pump to be on. Also, it has only two small rooms to control. It would be ideal for my home.
