How Ductless Heat Pumps Work

Tried-and-true engineering for over 4 decades.

The indoor unit and the outdoor unit of ductless heat pumps are connected by small pipes that carry refrigerant.  In the cooling seasons, the system removes heat from inside your home and sends it outside. In the winter when you need to heat your home, the system collects heat from the air outside and brings it into your home. This technology allows you to keeps your home at a consistent temperature all year round at a much lower monthly cost.

Ductless heat pumps are a simple, sensible solution.

Using something called inverter technology, Ductless Systems keep the temperature consistent in your home all year round.  Inverter technology allows the system to avoid the temperature variations (inconsistency) that might occur with conventional heating systems.  Ductless heat pumps use variable speed compressors to deliver only the perfect amount of refrigerant.   WHile some systems just pump air into one spot, ductless systems will distribute air evenly throughout the room.

And it’s not just here in the US.  If you travel over seas, most of the homes in Europe and many countries around the globe use this technology.  In Japan, over 90% of the homes have ductless systems installed!
