If you are looking for a new heat pump for your home, be sure to consider models with the ENERGY STAR label. Heat pumps with a SEER over 12 and HSPF of more than 7 are ENERGY STAR certified, and they will save your home a significant amount of energy compared to any non-ENERGY STAR heat pumps. If you are not sure if a heat pump model is ENERGY STAR rated, look for the bright yellow EnergyGuide label for the efficiency rating or talk to your local contractor.
What Are Ductless Split Systems
So what is a ductless split system anyway? As their name suggests, these systems are made up of multiple parts. There is an outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor units. These component parts are linked together by refrigerant lines which supply the indoor units with coolant from the outdoor compressor.
This setup is similar to that of a traditional air conditioning system or heat pump, but the main difference between these systems and the split models is the absence of air ducts. Other forms of home heating and cooling systems require a system of air ducts to get the heat from one area of the house to another. Ductless splits, however, are able to produce the heated or cooled air in the in-room units.
Benefits of the Mini Split System
There are quite a few benefits to ductless systems. First of all, ductless splits can be installed in more areas than traditional air conditioners. That’s because some spaces are simply too small to allow for enough air ducts. If space is at a premium in your home, a ductless split system may be the solution.
In a home that doesn’t have ductwork already in place the installation of a ductless split system will be much cheaper than that of a more conventional ducted system. That’s because installing ducts is time consuming and labor intensive. The refrigerant lines required by a ductless mini split system are much easier to put in.
