What Is a Ductless Heat Pump?

A ductless split heat pump is an HVAC system capable of both heating and cooling one’s home, as heat pump technology allows for the reversal of the system’s refrigerant cycle. While dedicated heated or cooling systems may be available, most homeowners decide to use one that offers year round comfort. An outdoor unit connects to individual, wall-mounted blowers, with each outdoor unit typically supporting up to 4 indoor units. These blowers are controlled independently of one another, meaning that you can heat different areas of your home to different temperatures. When summer comes, you can set the system to its cooling mode for uninterrupted comfort.

Ductless Heat Pump Limitations

Heat pumps use very little energy as they transfer heat from the air outside into the system, compress the warmed refrigerant, and then use that thermal energy in order to heat air for distribution throughout your home. This makes them very efficient. However, considering how severe our winters can be, you may want to supplement your ductless heating system with another backup heater, for those days or nights when it is simply too cold to rely upon a heat pump alone. Work with us to design a whole-house heating system that is optimized with your home and heating needs in mind.
