You might have noticed some of your friends and neighbors have installed ductless heat pumps as an alternative to central air A/C. Families all over eastern Pennsylvania and central Delmarva are experiencing the comfort of ductless heat pumps, often referred to as “mini-splits”. They offer an all-in-one heating and cooling solution.
Let’s break down how ductless heat pumps work and why they’re gaining in popularity.
Ductless heat pumps are composed of an air handler—the part inside your home—and a condenser, which is outside. A thin pipe through an exterior wall connects these components.
This ductless system uses heat exchanger coils to move warm air between the inside and outside your home. The heat pump captures heat inside your home in the summer and expels it outside. In the winter, the process reverses, and it draws warm air inside. A single condenser can operate up to four air handlers. This creates a lot of temperature control with minimal equipment!
If you’re currently relying on window A/C units during the summer or space heaters in winter, a ductless heat pump system can be your all-in-one solution.
