How Does Ductless Heat?

There are two main components to a ductless system: the outdoor unit and the indoor blowers. The outdoor uses heat pump technology, and is connected to the indoor blowers (up to 4 per outdoor unit) via a conduit through an exterior wall. The way the system is able to provide both heating and cooling is due to the reversing valve in the heat pump: this valve reverses the flow of refrigerant, so the device can both heat and cool. All that is required is that the mode is switched from cooling to heating.

The conduit between the outdoor unit and the indoor blowers has a power cord, condensate drain and refrigerant line. When an indoor blower is turned on, it begins the heating or cooling cycle, and soon air will blow from the indoor blower.

What Are the Benefits of a Ductless System?

As we’ve already discussed, one of the biggest advantages of installing a ductless mini-split is that the system can both heat and cool your home. Here are some other benefits to consider:

  • Easy installation – because there is no need for ductwork, the installation of a ductless system is simple and straightforward. The indoor blowers can be mounted flush against walls or hung from ceilings, a small 3” hole is drilled into an exterior wall, and the indoor unit is connected to the outdoor unit via the conduit.
  • Customized comfort – each blower operates independently, allowing you to set a different temperature per blower, or even keep heating off in an unused area.
  • Energy efficiency – not only is the system itself very energy efficient – it uses only a small amount of electricity to operate – but the ability to customize your comfort also helps to reduce energy usage.

If you want a system that offers both heating and cooling and energy efficiency, ductless heating in Port Aransas may be the perfect fit for you.
