How Does Ductless Heating Work?

Monday, November 10th, 2014

If you’re looking for a reliable heating system for your entire home or a single room but don’t want to deal with the hassle of installation, you’re in luck. Ductless heating systems are now used all across the United States as a whole-home heating and air conditioning solution. Ductless mini splits are a fairly new innovation gaining a lot of popularity these due to efficiency and the ease of installation.

The system consists of two major components: the outdoor compressor unit and the indoor air handler. The only real construction that must be completed is a small hole drilled into the wall to feed through the refrigerant line. The indoor air handler is mounted up high on the wall or suspended from the ceiling and acts as the air distribution port. You will need multiple indoor air handlers to heat or cool an entire home. Let’s take a look inside these units and discuss whether ductless heating is right for your home in Greenwich.

Inside a Ductless Mini Split

A ductless mini split consists of two major components. The outdoor portion contains a compressor and an outdoor coil, while the indoor air handler contains a blower fan and another coil. The ductless mini split essentially works as an air conditioner in the summer months. Refrigerant cycles throughout the entire system. As it passes through the indoor coil, it converts into a gas and absorbs heat from the air in your home. It then travels outside to release the heat, as the blower fan blows cool air into the room.

In the cooler months, the system simply works in reverse. The reversing valve is the component that allows refrigerant to flow in the opposite direction. So, refrigerant evaporates at the outdoor coil and absorbs heat from the air outside to move into your home instead.

Is It Right for My Home?

Ductless heating may not be right for every home. If you already own a set of ductwork, there’s no reason to install a ductless heating system. In fact, you may need an additional heating system as temperatures come close to 30 degrees as your ductless unit may not be able to draw in enough heat. However, in general, a ductless mini split is one of the most efficient heating and cooling systems you could purchase for your home.
