A ductless heat pump or air conditioner typically consists of a wall-mounted indoor unit combined with an outside compressor. It is most often used in a situation where a window AC unit or a baseboard heating would be considered, such as in a new addition to a house. But unlike window units, ductless units require only a very small hole to be drilled into the wall, making them less vulnerable to air leakage and security problems. Plus, they’re less visible and audible.
Ductless Heating and Cooling Reviews
Ductless Heating and Cooling systems are exceedingly energy-efficient. In the average house, you’re losing 25 percent or more of your energy to the ductwork. Simply by removing the ducts, you end up with a more efficient system.
Ductless models also have inverter-driven compressors, which speed up and slow down based on the needs of the system instead of shutting off entirely like traditional HVAC compressors do. You consume a lot of energy during compressor start-up.
