Below you’ll find everything you need to know about ductless heat pumps and their benefits, so read on!
Why Are Ductless Heat Pumps so Popular?
These days, ductless heat pumps are so prevalent in various homes because they are easy to install and can effectively cool a household without the need to rely on complicated vents and ductwork. They can also decrease your utility bills and efficiently heat/cool specific rooms of your home to whatever specific temperature you would like.
How Do They Work?
Ductless heat pumps require several integral components to work correctly. One of them is the evaporator, a coil that extracts the hot air from indoors and then expels it onto a refrigerant to cool it down—then recirculated when cooled. Condensers are similar to evaporator coils, but instead of releasing cool air, they extract the hot air created from the refrigerant back outside again.
Compressors compress the refrigerant’s pressure and temperature to make it more efficient. It also helps make it easier for the refrigerant to flow through the evaporator coil. Lastly, a ductless heat pump’s expansion valve then helps cool the refrigerant back down to a low-pressure, liquid state.
What Are Some of the Key Advantages of Ductless Heat Pumps?
Some of the leading advantages of ductless heat pumps include:
- They take up much less space due to there being no ductwork.
- You can easily create multiple heating and cooling zones to maximize comfort.
- They’re more efficient than pumps with ducts, in some cases boasting a SEER rating as high as 30.
- With the filters present in ductless heat pumps, you can easily control the air quality of your home if you clean them regularly.
