Ductless Heat Pumps

An efficient air conditioner alternative

What is a Ductless Heat Pump?

Ductless heat pumps are an efficient air conditioner alternative that helps a lot of people save on energy bills in the summer.

Ductless heat pumps consist of an indoor air handler and an outdoor unit. The outdoor unit takes the air and then transfers it inside through conduits instead of ducts, which prevents energy loss.

In a ductless heat pump system, heat is transferred through a cycle of evaporation and condensation.  As air is transferred, it is cooled by a refrigerant that cycles through the system.  Every ductless heat pump contains two heat exchanger coils, one which condenses the refrigerant and another which evaporates it. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the surrounding area during the evaporation process.  Ductless heat pumps maintain the desired temperature set by the thermostat on the indoor unit. 

You can create zones with multiple indoor units to create zones. Each area in your home can run at its own independent temperature.  Ductless Heat Pumps are a great option for cooling and heating your home if you don’t currently have a ducted system. Many people opt for ductless heat pumps for new home additions or when they’re downsizing to a smaller home.

Why Heat Pumps are Worth It

A heat pump is a great option as well, there is a little more initial investment but there are often very good rebates available to help offset the initial cost. They are a very efficient way to heat your home until it gets extremely cold and then at that time your furnace will return to the main heat supply.

Like other heating and cooling systems for your home, it’s important that your heat pump is sized properly for your home. Be sure to contact a professional HVAC technician team like Elite Cool & Heat to make sure your heat pump will keep up with the cooling requirements demanded of your home.  Professional installation is often essential for qualifying for a warranty on your units. We can also help guide you to let you know which rebates you qualify for.
