Ductless Heat Pump Installation
Heat pumps, also called mini-splits, wall mounted splits, or duct-free systems, is an air conditioner that simply reverses the flow of refrigerant between the outdoor and indoor units. All ductless heat pumps are also ductless air conditioners. When heating is required, the heat from the outdoor air is absorbed by the outdoor unit, then more heat is added by the compressor, which then pumps the refrigerant to the indoor unit. After being ejected into the room, the colder refrigerant is pumped through an expansion valve causing the refrigerant to become very cold. Overall, the outdoor coil works as an evaporator and the indoor unit is a condenser. The refrigerant flowing from the evaporator carries the heat energy from outside to the inside. The vapor is then compressed. The indoor coil transfers the heat energy (including energy created from the compression) to the indoor air, which is then moved around the inside of the building by the indoor unit or air handler.
When you purchase a ductless air conditioner, there is quite often the option to have it work as a heat pump too. While most Toronto homes that use ductless air conditioners for cooling use boilers and radiators for heat, they can also take advantage of ductless heat pumps for additional heating. Boilers and radiators are excellent heat sources, but they don’t have blower fans that circulate the air in your home. Many people that use radiant heat also use fans throughout their house. A ductless heat pump is a good solution to ensure that the air in your home is properly circulated and also filtered.
Supplementing your heating system with a ductless heat pump is easy and affordable, and since you’re installing a ductless air conditioner anyway, it only makes sense to take advantage of another heating option, especially considering cold Toronto winters.
