How Do Ductless Heat Pump Systems Work?
Ductless heat pump systems, also known as mini-split AC systems, have two main components: the indoor unit and the outdoor unit. The indoor unit contains the evaporator coils where the refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air inside the home. This warm air is then transferred outside through the outdoor unit.
Both ductless heat pumps and ductless mini-splits are easy to install and allow you comfort all year round. You have control over the temperature for individual rooms. They're a great option for "add-on" spaces in a home or building.
The benefits of a ductless heat pump or ductless mini-split system include:
- Customized heating and cooling in individual rooms and spaces
- Multiple units can be networked to accommodate your whole home or office
- More energy-efficient than central air conditioners
- Less invasive installation results in less air leakage
- More secure than a window AC
Ductless heat pump air conditioning systems also offer a flexible alternative to baseboard and window units. They are particularly well-suited to remodeling projects, home additions, and for cooling garages, guesthouses, and other outbuildings that are not linked to a central duct system. Many of these systems feature Wi-Fi capabilities, enabling you to control the temperature in your home or office from your smartphone.
Can a Ductless Heat Pump Heat a Whole House?
With the right size of ductless heat pump installed an entire house can be heated or cooled. It's very common to believe these ductless units cannot heat a house without the help of a traditional system in place. The placement of the unit within the home is the biggest determining factor other than the size. Heat pumps should be placed in a central unit to allow the heat to radiate and freely move about the house.
Though most often associated with their cooling features, these systems can be used year-round, providing you with heat in the winter. These systems take warm air from the environment, even during the colder months, moving it into your home.
