Ductless mini-split heat pumps as we know are famous for their dual capability to operation as a room heater or a room cooler. Besides that, it is very portable. Comparing older pumps to the ductless one, less cost is needed as it requires less energy consumption. And the best part of this pump is it can provide central air conditioning to any type of structure.
In order to understand how the ductless pump works, it is important to some knowledge of how older heat pumps work. The refrigerant coil and air handler operates in the indoor and compressor-condenser combination handles the outdoor. The older pumps cool the air through the evaporator coil and then distributed in the structure by ductwork. With a non-duct system, these processes are not required and only indoor operations are needed.
With the unique design of the ductless pump, the temperature can be normalized manually at the desired location. To gain control of the heat, multiple thermostats are used. Using this method, there are various temperature zones within a house, where other unnecessary energies are not wasted.
In addition to that, the ductless mini-split heat pumps provide a great flexibility in terms of its installation. This pump can be adjusted to become wall hanging, ceiling suspended or even floor standing. To install this pump, all you need to do is to drill a 3-inch hole in a wall and feed them through the holes. It is vital to give extra care when installing the pumps, as incorrect installation may cause faulty temperature control. Also, the size of the pump should be considered depending to factors like amount of heat needed and are needed to be covered. Unfortunately, the mini-split heat pumps cannot be used under freezing condition.
As a recognised cost and carbon saving energy solution, simply installing a Heat Pump system to a residential or commercial building can potentially add significant value to a home or business property
