Frequently Asked Ductless Heat Pump Questions

If you’re in the market for a new heating and cooling system, you may have heard of ductless heating pumps. If you’re considering buying a ductless heat pump as your next home comfort system, or if you just have some questions about what a ductless heat pump has to offer, we compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions to give you a quick overview of what you need to know.

What Is A Ductless Heat Pump?
Unlike traditional central heating and cooling systems, ductless heat pumps consist of three components that do not need to be routed through your home’s ducts. Each system consists of an outdoor unit that pulls in air, an indoor unit that disperses the air, and a remote to control the unit. What makes the ductless heat pump special is that it’s just one system that takes care of both cooling and heating in your home! With proper maintenance and care, a ductless system can work effectively and efficiently for over twenty years.

What Is A Ducted Heat Pump?
Many homeowners think that they only have the choice between central air and ductless, however, there is also the option of a ducted heat pump! If your home already has ductwork installed, you can enjoy all of the benefits of a heat pump system using the vents and ductwork you already have. Ducted heat pumps use one or more indoor air handlers, similar to a central air system, but the outdoor condenser systems have far more benefits.

What Is The Difference Between A Ductless Heat Pump And Central Air Conditioning?
The main difference between a ductless heat pump and central air conditioning is a question we’re very often asked. A central air conditioner works in partnership with your furnace and the ductwork in your home, while a ductless heat pump works independently from your ductwork, and also does the job of both your furnace and air conditioner.

How Do I Know What Size Ductless Heat Pump I Need For My Home?
Ductless air conditioners are particularly convenient because they can be placed strategically in different rooms or areas of the house for maximum efficiency and impact. On average, one ductless heat pump system can serve up to 600 square feet, but this also depends on your home’s natural climate and where you decide to place your ducts.

What Kind Of Maintenance Does A Ductless Heat Pump Need?
Ductless heat pumps need about the same amount of care and maintenance that an average air conditioning unit needs. This means keeping the outside of the indoor unit dust-free, changing the filters regularly, and keeping the environment around the outdoor unit neat and debris-free. It is also important to remember to schedule regular annual maintenance in order to keep your system healthy and working at its best.
