Newly installed ductless heat pump for home addition

Ductless mini split heat pumps are a type of HVAC system that provide efficient heating and cooling without the need for ductwork. These systems are becoming increasingly popular as homeowners seek cost-effective and energy-efficient ways to heat and cool their homes.

What is a ductless heat pump?

A ductless heat pump, also known as a mini-split system, is a type of HVAC system that consists of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air handlers. The outdoor unit contains a compressor and a condenser, while the indoor air handlers contain an evaporator and a blower. The indoor and outdoor units are connected by a conduit that contains a refrigerant line, a power cable, and a drain line.

Ductless heat pumps work by extracting heat from the outdoor air and transferring it indoors, or vice versa. In the winter, the outdoor unit extracts heat from the outdoor air and transfers it to the indoor air handlers, which distribute the warm air throughout the home. In the summer, the process is reversed, with the indoor air handlers extracting heat from the indoor air and transferring it outdoors.

What are the benefits of ductless heat pumps?

There are several benefits to choosing a ductless heat pump for your home. First, these systems are highly energy efficient, as they don’t lose energy through leaks in ductwork. This can lead to significant savings on your energy bills over time. In addition, ductless heat pumps are easy to install and operate, making them a convenient option for homeowners.

Ductless heat pumps also provide zoned heating and cooling, which allows you to customize your home’s temperature based on your preferences and usage patterns. This means you can heat or cool only the rooms you use most often, rather than wasting energy on unoccupied spaces. Plus, ductless systems are much quieter than traditional HVAC systems, as the indoor air handlers are designed to operate at a low volume.

Finally, ductless heat pumps are environmentally friendly, as they use refrigerant that is less harmful to the ozone layer than older refrigerants. This means you can stay comfortable in your home without harming the environment.

How do I choose the right ductless heat pump for my home?
