How a Ductless Heat Pump Trumps a Traditional HVAC System

Monday, October 27, 2014

More homeowners in all regions of the U.S. are discovering the advantages of ductless heating and cooling. Keep reading to explore the many advantages of a ductless heat pump system for your new home or remodel project.

Advantages of a Ductless Heat Pump

Traditional HVAC systems must be large enough to heat and cool the entire home from one large indoor air-handling unit (AHU). In contrast, ductless heat pumps are sized and installed room by room (i.e. zone by zone), which offers many advantages for comfort and energy savings.

  • Zoned Comfort: The indoor AHUs are independently controlled, which allows you to heat and cool each zone separately as you please. You may design a ductless system to provide supplemental conditioning for room additions, remodeled rooms, home offices and anywhere else in your home. Ductless systems may be configured to provide primary whole-home conditioning, too, which may be practical in regions with moderate winter weather.
  • Efficiency: Everyone wants lower energy bills, which is one of the excellent advantages of a ductless heat pump. Not only are ductless systems energy-efficient by design and configuration, the components which make up a ductless system offer sophisticated operation, system monitoring, which drives super-heat/super-cool heat exchange. For instance, the combination of a digital-inverter compressor and electronic expansion valve (EEV) deliver precise amounts of high-efficiency refrigerant to maintain optimal comfort and efficiency.
  • Indoor air quality: Select ductless heat pump systems provide on-board filtration components that rival just about any room air-cleaning machine. A three-phase filtration process neutralizes odors, removes particulates, and provides a blue-enzyme anti-bacterial filter to capture bacteria, germs, viruses and allergens.
  • Mounting: Ductless system AHUs may be mounted on the surfaces of walls, ceilings and the floor. You may also install the indoor AHU inside ceiling and wall cavities for a smooth traditional HVAC system look. The outdoor cabinet, which houses the compressor/condenser and other components, may be discreetly installed more than 100 feet from the farthest AHU.
