A Mitsubishi Furnace Replacement?
Yes! It is a surprise to many people that they can actually replace their furnace with a Mitsubishi heat pump and not only save big on operating costs but also get rid of the combustion of fossil fuels in your home. Most people love the idea of the Mitsubishi mini-split system for their, however, many people also find the aesthetics of the equipment to be less than desirable and sometimes the cost of doing a whole home Mitsubishi system is out of the budget for some. The Mitsubishi SVZ air handler is a great way to get the best air source heat pump technology to provide both heating and cooling in one system and do it with a budget that is reasonable for your household.
What is the Mitsubishi SVZ Air Handler?
Basically a Mitsubishi SVZ air handler is a piece of equipment that moves the air through the ductwork in your home. This air handler connects to the same outdoor unit that works with ductless units. Likely you’ve heard of the efficiencies and benefits of ductless heating and cooling, now you can get the benefits of that equipment but not have to install units on the walls all over the house. An SVZ air handler gives you the same Hyper-Heat Technology as in the ductless units, and all the efficiency and savings, but they sit in the same footprint as your old furnace and connect right to your existing ductwork or air vents.
How does the SVZ Air Handler replace a furnace?
A Mitsubishi SVZ Air Handler is heating, cooling, dehumidification, and air filtration all in one system. It works on the same heat pump technology described here, and it eliminates your need for gas or oil. This unit can be installed in a variety of positions and spaces. Because it eliminates the need for fuel and exhaust venting it allows for much more flexible installations. These units can be installed in basements, closets, and attics. All the benefits of having a whole house ducted heating and cooling system, without the combustion, noise, and potential for carbon monoxide the way a furnace does.
Would the Mitsubishi SVZ be right for my home or business?
If you have an existing furnace with existing ductwork then it is very likely that the SVZ would be a great fit for your home/business. Of course, any duct design will affect the performance of any heating or cooling system, but Custom Climates is always sure to inspect and quick check the duct design of a potential system installation. We recommend having us come out for a visit to take a look at the existing system to see if it makes sense and would be a fit for the Mitsubishi SVZ. Like most residential systems, there are some limitations on the sizing of the equipment based on the spaces being conditioned, but this again would be checked prior to installation.
Why would I want to replace my furnace with an SVZ air handler?
Most people replace their furnace when their old one fails. A furnace almost never fails on a Tuesday at 11:00 AM. We find that if your furnace is going to fail, you are likely going to find it in that condition during the most inconvenient time. It will likely fail on the coldest or hottest day of the year, likely a holiday weekend in the middle of the night… We joke a little, but people would be surprised how often this is the case. These circumstances are why most decisions for new furnaces are made in an emergency situation.
It is very often that when these situations occur, most people will have their service company diagnose the issue, then when told it can’t be fixed, they have that same company replace it with whatever they can do quickest for the least amount of money. It is a situation that doesn’t allow for a lot of time to make the best decision based on comfort, controls, and the best return on investment. The HVAC system in your home is one of the higher costing features to replace, others being a driveway, septic, or roof. The HVAC system is also like the lungs of your home providing healthy air and comfort, and this is very important. Custom Climates highly recommends trying to weigh all these items before jumping to replacing your system with the quickest or same system you’ve had for decades. A Mitsubishi Air Handler can be installed in the same amount of time or less time than a conventional furnace. You are back up and running in a day or less and your heating bills are reduced.
It is for these reasons that we recommend planning ahead to replace your furnace with a Mitsubishi SVZ now while your existing system is still operating. Or even in an emergency situation, don’t make an emergency decision. A Mitsubishi air handler is a great choice and can be done just as quickly as a conventional furnace replacement.
One last thought for existing homes looking to replace an aging furnace. Many people have a conventional air conditioning system that was installed as part of their HVAC system. Some people buy a new furnace and leave the old AC there, or by new AC and leave the old furnace there because they never fail at the same time. Today, systems are really built to work together, and the best efficiencies come from having a matched system. Leaving half of your old HVAC system and replacing half with new greatly limits the technology and efficiencies you can take advantage of. With a Mitsubishi Heat Pump Air Handler, you get heating and cooling in one system and this eliminates having to revisit HVAC replacement for a long time. At the same time it maximizes the opportunity to take advantage of technologies available today and with several financing plans available, this state of the art solution is affordable for any budget.
