Ductless Air Conditioners & Heat Pumps

What is a ductless air conditioner & heat pump?

A ductless air conditioner and heat pump, also known as a mini-split air conditioner/heat pump, is a type of heating and cooling system that does not require the use of ducts to distribute the heated or cooled air throughout a building. It consists of an outdoor unit that is connected to one or more indoor units via a small conduit.

The indoor units are mounted on walls, and can be controlled independently, allowing for customized temperature control in different areas of a building.

The outdoor unit contains a compressor that pumps refrigerant through the system, which absorbs heat from the outside air and transfers it to the indoor units to provide heating.

It can also run in reverse cycle to provide cooling.

Ductless heat pumps are highly efficient and are becoming increasingly popular due to their flexibility, ease of installation and the ability to heat and cool specific zones.

What are the advantages of a ductless air conditioner and heat pump?

There are several advantages to using a ductless air conditioner and heat pump:

  • Energy efficiency: Ductless systems are highly efficient because they do not lose energy through ductwork, which can be a major source of energy loss in traditional central air conditioning systems.
  • Flexibility: Ductless systems can be used to cool or heat specific zones of a building, allowing for customized temperature control in different areas.
  • Easy Installation: Ductless systems are relatively easy to install, and can often be done without the need for major renovations or construction.
  • Cost-effective: Ductless systems are often less expensive to install than traditional central air conditioning systems and can save you money on energy bills in the long run.
  • Low noise: Ductless systems are generally very quiet, so they won’t disrupt the peace and quiet of your home.
  • Versatility: Ductless heat pumps work in both heating and cooling mode, which eliminates the need to install separate air conditioner and heater in your home.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: Ductless systems use multi-stage filtration system that helps to improve the indoor air quality.
  • Design Flexibility: Ductless systems are sleek, modern and unobtrusive design that can blend in with any home décor.
