What Exactly is a Ductless Heat Pump?
Before we get into how great ductless heat pumps are, here is a short explanation of what ductless heat pumps are and how they work. A ductless heat pump is a type of heating and cooling system that does not require ductwork to cool or warm your home. This heat pump consists of an outdoor compressor and indoor air handler. Often, these heat pumps can be called mini-split air conditioners because they come with indoor single-room, wall-mounted air conditioners, to specifically cool or heat certain areas in your home.
What Are the Advantages of a Ductless Heat Pump?
Now that we have the details out of the way, let’s get into why ductless heat pumps can be a great option for your home!
- They Offer Single-Zone and Multi-Zone Cooling
- Ductless Heat Pumps are Easier to Install
Ductless heat pumps are far easier to install than a standard, central HVAC system. You can install a ductless heat pump in your existing house with very little renovation or disruption. Many guides can help you go through all the steps of installing this heat pump. In no time, you will be enjoying the efficient cooling these ductless heat pumps provide.
- Adding an AC to a Home with No Ducts? Choose Ductless
Ductless heat pumps are a comparatively cheaper option for adding ducts to an existing home. If you want to efficiently cool your home, consider a single or multi-zone ductless option for your home.
- Downsizing? Go Ductless!
Many people don’t see the point in cooling rooms that are never used. Often, people will make the mistake of covering the vents in these homes. This does more harm than good and creates a pressure imbalance in your home. A better option is to add a ductless heat pump to cool specific regions in your home.
If you have a smaller home, apartment, or sort of an open-concept home, a single-zone ductless heat pump would work perfectly for you. A single-zone heat pump has one indoor unit connected to one outdoor unit. It provides cooling much more efficiently than an AC utilizing complex ductwork would. Multi-zone cooling is better for a larger building or individual rooms in your home. This is perfect if you have a room in your home that does not get proper cooling or where your AC ductworks don’t reach. Multi-zone cooling refers to a heat pump system that has several indoor units hooked up to a single outdoor unit.
