What Is a Ductless Heat Pump and How Does It Work?
A heat pump is a similar technology to an air conditioner except that it can operate bi-directionally and thus provide both heating and cooling to a home. An air conditioner uses refrigerant, a condenser, and an evaporator to transfer heat energy from inside the home to the ambient air. A heat pump has a reversing valve that allows the condenser and evaporator to switch roles and thereby transfer heat energy from the ambient air to inside the home. A ductless heat pump is the same as a heat pump except that it blows conditioned air directly into the living space as opposed to through ductwork.

Signs You Need Ductless Heat Pump Maintenance or Repair
We encourage homeowners to schedule seasonal ductless heat pump maintenance in order to get issues corrected before they develop into a more serious and expensive problem. Oliver also advises homeowners to track their electricity usage on a month-to-month and year-to-year basis as a sudden spike is often one of the first signs of heat pump troubles. You should also call us if you notice cold or warm spots, short or long cycling, odd noises or smells, or any excess condensation.
Ductless Heat Pump Installation & Replacement
Our HVAC technicians specialize in all manner of ductless heat pump installation. That includes new installs and conversions from other heating and cooling solutions. We also replace old ductless systems with modern equipment and also install these units as add-ons to central systems. That is often done to provide zoned HVAC in a certain area or provide heating and cooling to a disconnected living space.
Ductless vs. Traditional Heat Pumps
A ducted heat pump and a ductless heat pump are fundamentally the same in how they generate cooling and heating. There are two primary differences. One is that the ductless system blows conditioned air directly into the living space while the ducted system pressurizes air through a duct network where it eventually reaches the living spaces through vents. The other difference is that a ductless unit is designed for continuous operation making small adjustments as needed whereas even variable-speed ducted heat pumps are designed to cycle on and off. There are pros and cons to both approaches.
Energy-Efficient Heating & Cooling
Heat pumps in general are among the most energy-efficient heating and cooling solutions currently available. But a ductless heat pump can be particularly efficient due to the option to zone. With zoned temperature controls, you can turn up the heat or air conditioning in the living spaces you’re actually using but maintain more modest settings elsewhere throughout the home, which results in significant savings.
Reliable Maintenance Services
We recommend seasonal maintenance for your ductless heat pump: once in spring prior to needing air conditioning and again in fall prior to needing heating. Most HVAC warranties require it. It’s also a good idea because it reduces your monthly energy usage and extends the life of your equipment. You should also consider our maintenance plan. It helps you save money while ensuring your system is serviced on schedule, and membership comes with other perks, including a two-year warranty on all repairs.
