Today's homeowners are more concerned than ever about maintaining indoor comfort without facing massive energy bills. Ductless heat pumps are viable solutions in many situations. A ductless heat pump system is one that delivers heated and cooled air to individual rooms or small areas in a home. It uses a two-way heat pump to make this happen. Two-way heat pumps are remarkably efficient because they take advantage of heat's natural tendency to move from warm spaces to cool spaces and can reverse the process while using a minimal amount of electricity.
A ductless heat pump system consists of at least one outdoor unit, which houses a compressor and condenser, and at least one indoor air-handling unit. Indoor and outdoor units are connected by suction tubing, refrigerant tubing, a power cable and a condensate drain. No ducts are used at all. Mitsubishi Electric ductless heat pumps are among the most innovative and effective on the market today, and the best systems use them.
The main difference between a ductless heat pump and a ductless air conditioner is that the heat pump is actually a two-way system. It can pull warm air from a room to make it cooler and draw it in from outside to make it warmer. A ductless air conditioner, on the other hand, is basically a one-way heat pump. In general, ductless heat pumps can effectively heat a home as long as the outdoor temperature doesn't drop below 17 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ductless systems have many advantages over traditional HVAC systems. A few prime examples include:
