Many homeowners are looking for energy-efficient heating and cooling systems that can help them save on their energy bills while improving their comfort. If you’re one of those homeowners, you have come to the right place. The pros at American Air, Plumbing & Electric have prepared a helpful guide on what a ductless heat pump is, how it works and how it can provide the energy-efficient heating, cooling, and comfort that you need.

What Is A Ductless Heat Pump and How Does it Work?

It’s in the name! A ductless heat pump cycles air inside and outside of your home through a wall attachment, instead of transferring air through the ductwork in your home. This is a little different from wall-attachment/ductless air conditioners because ductless heat pumps consist of a two-way system. They pull warm air from a room to cool it or they pull outside air to make your room warmer. They are ideal for smaller spaces or individual rooms in your home.

They have both indoor and outdoor units, the latter consisting of a compressor and condenser. Heat pumps also generally take up less energy to heat the spaces they occupy.

What Are the Benefits of a Ductless Heat Pump?

A ductless heat pump has numerous benefits:

  • Low Operating Costs
    Bigger HVAC units with ductwork have higher maintenance costs and expensive technology. Plus, they use more energy to cool or heat your home. On the other hand, ductless air conditioners are easier to maintain and require lesser energy to operate.
  • Easy to Install
    While installing an entire HVAC system with ducts can take a lot of time and several calls to professionals, it’s easier to install ductless heat pumps. The most you have to do is drill and 3-inch hole and connect the indoor handler and outdoor unit. It takes less time and effort to install a ductless heat pump. However, we still recommend hiring a professional to do it as improper installation can lead to issues with cooling and heating.
  • Cooling Individual Spaces
    If the ductwork in your home does not reach a certain individualized space or room in your home, a ductless heat pump is a great option.
  • No Ductwork Needed
    Ductwork itself requires a lot of maintenance and care. One small misstep here and the heating and cooling of your entire home can be compromised. However, with ductless heat pumps, you won’t have to worry about ductwork. This way you won’t have to worry about dirty ductwork or ductwork leaks, which can contribute to loss of energy.
