How Ductless Heating Works

Ductless mini splits utilize heat pump technology in order to harness heat in the air outdoors in order to facilitate the heating of one’s home. There is always heat in the air outside, which is used to warm refrigerant. This refrigerant is then further compressed, and its thermal energy is used to exchange heat with air within the house.

Unlike traditional heat pumps, though, ductless mini splits don’t use ductwork. Instead, a central outdoor unit supports up to four blowers, typically, and these blowers heat the rooms in which they are installed directly. The use of this technology benefits homeowners in a few ways.

Benefits of Ductless Heating

The main draw of heat pump technology, of course, is that the transfer of existing heat allows for the efficient heating of one’s home. It is very affordable, as only a small amount of electricity is used in the process. Because there is no ductwork with these systems, there is also no risk of air leaks leading to inefficiency, nor of pollutants making their way into the system and throughout the home. Plus, the individual blowers are controlled independently of one another, so you can maintain different temperatures in different areas throughout the house. Finally, ductless mini splits can double as cooling systems in the summer. Call to learn more.
