For those with outdated cable ceiling heat, baseboard or wall heaters, ductless mini split heat pumps are the ideal way to heat the property. These innovative systems are also considered ideal for room additions where the extension or installation of further ductwork is not feasible for the property owner and for smaller properties that only require heating or air conditioning for a limited amount of space.

Ductless mini-split heat pumps have two main components comprising their machinery – a compact outdoor (compressor/condenser) unit and a stylish indoor (air-handling) unit. These two components are linked by a conduit that houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain. For those interested in integrating this style of heating and air conditioning solution, there are many unique advantages. These advantages include:

  • The ductless heat pumps are small in size, making them ideal for heating and cooling individual rooms.
  • Many models are flexible enough to include four indoor air handling units connected to one outdoor component. Flexibly allows the homeowner (zone control) to heat or cool four individual rooms.
  • Ductless systems are quicker and easier to install over many other types of heating and air conditioning systems
  • Mini split ductless systems can help homeowners avoid energy loss as a result of ductwork, which can often account for as much as 30% of energy consumption.

One of the keys to selecting any HVAC solution is to work with professionals that have years of experience and expertise. Only by working with experienced top contractors can homeowners ensure that they will get the right equipment for the level of heating and cooling needed for their home.

An important point to note is that products featuring the ENERGY STAR® compliant label are often the leading solutions in the market in terms of efficiency.

A qualified local area heat pump contractor will be able to lead homeowners in the right direction in finding a ductless system that meets both their budgetary needs and environmental requirements.
