What is a Ductless Heat Pump System?

A Ductless Heat Pump is a highly efficient heating and cooling system. It is easily installed as a new primary heat source for electrically heated homes. These systems heat and cool homes at a fraction of the cost of baseboards and wall heaters. Ductless Heat Pumps are much safer, quieter and heat rooms evenly (no more hot or cold spots)

Ductless systems do not require expensive and invasive duct-work. They require only a three inch opening in the wall or ceiling. Installation is as simple as mounting the indoor and outdoor units, connecting the refrigerant lines and making a few electrical connections.

How does a Heat Pump Work?

A heat pump transfers heat using refrigerant expansion and compression within a cycle… What does that mean? It means it takes cold air and makes it warm and takes warm air and makes it cold, when you want it and where you want it! Ductless systems have 3 main parts:

1. An indoor unit, mounted on a wall.

2. An outdoor unit, that sits on the ground.

3. A remote control that controls the unit.

The indoor and outdoor units are connected by a small bundle of cables including a refrigerant line. These cables only require a 3 inch hole in the wall for installation.
