How Does a Heat Pump Offer Heating?
The key to a heat pump offering both heating and cooling is a specific component called a reversing valve. The reversing valve can change the direction of how the refrigerant in the system flows, resulting in heating and cooling modes. Making the switch is easy: just activate the mode on your home’s thermostat; the reversing valve does the rest.
What Are the Benefits of Ductless Heating?
Here are some of the benefits of choosing a ductless heating system:
- Customized comfort – each indoor blower in a ductless system operates individually, allowing for zone controlled heating. This can help increase your comfort levels throughout your home.
- Increased energy efficiency – there are two ways a ductless heating system can help with energy efficiency: first, by utilizing a heat pump, you will use only a small amount of electricity for fuel, and second, because the indoor blowers allow you to use only the amount of heating you need. Both can help you reduce energy usage.
- Easy expansion – because there is no need for ductwork, a ductless system can be easily expanded. A single outdoor unit supports up to 4 indoor blowers, so as long as you have the right amount of support, you can add an indoor blower very easily.
