Understanding Heat Pumps

Ductless heat pumps provide heat by extracting heat from outside air and delivering it indoors as needed. Because they are moving heat, rather than generating it through combustion or resistance, heat pumps can achieve efficiencies well above 100%. Long used for cooling in warm climates, heat pumps are now able to provide efficient heating in cold climates even at outdoor temperatures as low as -15 °F.



Ductless heat pumps consist of an outdoor unit connected to indoor air handlers by refrigerant lines, which carry heat between the two units. Available in wall units, floor units, ceiling cassettes and Mini Ducts. These units also cool as well as heat in the same manner of extracting the heat from indoors and moving it outdoors, as well as taking the humidity out with it. Air Conditioning not just cooling. The newest heat pumps are twice as efficient as unit air conditioners.

Heat pumps filter out dust and other allergens from your indoor air, improving indoor air quality and helping with allergies. Heat pumps are also very quiet. Noise is measured in decibels (db). Most indoor units operate between 22 and 40 db. Most outdoor units operate between 47 and 57 db. To help a customer understand these measurements, a whisper is ~ 30 db; a running refrigerator is ~ 50 db.
