How Does Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning Work?

You read that right—heating and air conditioning. While there are designated cooling–only ductless systems, most homeowners find the allure of the heat pump model too good to pass up. Like more traditional air source heat pumps, ductless mini splits are capable of reversing their refrigerant cycle, and that allows them to both heat and cool homes. Because no new heat is generated, with existing heat instead being transferred into the living space, the heating is exceptionally efficient.

Of course, a ductless mini split differs from air–source heat pumps and central air conditioners in that no air ducts are used in the operation—hence the name! Instead, wall–mounted blowers are installed throughout the house. They are controlled independently of one another with multiple thermostats, and a single outdoor unit will typically accommodate four of these blowers. The indoor and outdoor components connect via simple conduits containing necessary power, refrigerant, and drainage lines.

What Are the Benefits of Using a Ductless System in Columbia, MD?

First and foremost, you can both heat and cool your home with one system. But that is also possible with a regular heat pump. So why go the ductless route? There are a few additional benefits to consider:

  • Efficiency. Heat pumps in general make for highly efficient heaters. However, ductless mini splits eliminate the risk of air loss via duct leaks, and offer simple zone control, too. That helps to further improve efficiency.
  • Convenience. Heating and cooling your home with one system is convenient. If you are trying to install a whole–house HVAC system in an older or historic home, however, ductwork may be an issue. These systems are ideal for retrofit projects.
  • Air Quality. When talking about damaged or leaky ductwork, energy efficiency is typically the main concern. But you should also be concerned about the pollutants that can breach the system in this situation. Ductless mini splits can help to eliminate such IAQ problems.
