Are you tired of getting through the colder seasons with an inefficient and inexpensive portable heater or wall unit? Are you looking for a way to get warmth throughout your home, even if you don’t have a ventilation system running throughout your home? We’ve got the solution for you.
Ductless mini split systems are becoming more and more common in the U.S. A ductless mini split is a system of indoor blower modules mounted up high on walls or ceilings, each connected to the outdoor compressor unit.
You don’t need a ventilation system because air blows directly out from the units mounted on the wall. And the same system works for both heating and cooling. How does this work?
- A refrigerant line connects the indoor blower units to the outside condenser coil/compressor unit. Technicians only need to drill a small hole in the wall to feed this through.
- Thermostats are placed in each zone that has a blower mounted on the wall, and you can also have a central thermostat to control all the blower units at once (usually up to 4 per outside unit).
- When you set the thermostat for cooling, refrigerant absorbs heat from the air in the home, which starts a thermodynamic process that cools a coil in the indoor blower unit. Air blows over this coil and into the home, and heat is released outdoors when refrigerant condenses.
- When you set the thermostat to heating mode, the process reverses. Heat is absorbed from the air outdoors, and refrigerant transfers this heat inside.
- Ductless heat pumps are able to absorb heat for heating even as temperatures approach freezing outdoors.
- Ductless heat pumps are more efficient than most electric heaters because they move heat instead of generating heat. You can save a lot of money each year!
