How Ductless Systems Work
A ductless system (also called a ductless mini split heat pump) combines the point cooling of window AC units with the benefits of a central air conditioner. As with a central AC or heat pump, there are indoor and outdoor units. The outdoor unit is a familiar single cabinet that exhausts and absorbs heat and contains the compressor.
But there are multiple indoor units: instead of a single large air handler and evaporator coil, smaller air handlers with their own blower and coil are mounted on the walls of rooms. They connect to the outdoor unit via refrigerant and power lines through the small holes in the wall. The air handlers send cooled or heated air directly into the living space—no ducts at all.
Advantages of Ductless HVAC Systems
We already mentioned one of the major advantages of ductless mini split heat pumps: they are an option for older homes without the space for ductwork. Ductless systems are extremely flexible, and helpful when it comes to trying to heat and cool parts of a home that are difficult to condition.
But ductless HVAC offers benefits to almost any house. For one, they have excellent energy efficiency compared to central air conditioners. They have smaller motors and don’t lose or gain heat through stretches of ducts. They also remove worries about repairing and cleaning the ducts. They can also improve indoor air quality, since there are no ducts filled with dust and lint that will blow out each time the system comes on.
