How a Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump System Works

Posted: July 13, 2020

Many of you know that Wilson Oil and Propane installs and services high-efficiency central air conditioning systems from all major brands. But did you know that we also install ductless mini-split heat pump systems designed to give you more targeted comfort in any room you choose?

A ductless heat pump system lets you put cooling (or heating) precisely where you need it. It’s easy. We can install multiple indoor units, which all connect to one outdoor compressor. Only minimum drilling is necessary to complete the installation and connection of your ductless system.

Why people want ductless systems

These units are ideal for homes that don’t have ducts (such as many of our customers who have a hydronic system (boiler), which heats water and moves it through sealed pipes to radiators.

Because they don’t require traditional ductwork (just flexible tubing to connect the air handlers to the outdoor condenser), these compact mini-split units are ideal for any space that isn’t connected to your central heating or cooling system, such as an addition or a converted space. They are also a perfect, affordable solution for rooms that are hard to heat or cool, like a corner bedroom or a sunroom.

Ductless systems also give you the flexibility to enjoy a specific temperature in a room or multiple rooms, regardless of the season. These units are energy efficient and quiet, provide allergen filtration and feature wireless remote controls.

How a ductless system works

Wall-mounted ductless units are a simple and convenient way of keeping your home comfortable while saving money. If you install a ductless heat pump system, you can use it to provide both heating and cooling.

These mini-split systems give you the option of creating as many as eight different zones to be cooled or heated using just one outdoor compressor. Each zone has its own remote control, which means that you can save money by turning off any zone that is not occupied.

Super-efficient at both heating and cooling, ductless heat pumps eliminate the need for dangerous space heaters and ugly window units. Here’s another plus: you can use your ductless system to heat your home when temperatures are on the moderate side during the fall and winter, which will help you save some heating oil or propane.

When used correctly, it’s estimated that a ductless heat pump system can help lower energy costs by 30-40%.
