It Cools and It Heats!

That’s right. A heat pump, as its name suggests, operates by moving heat from one area to another. This is not unlike a typical air conditioner, but in the case of the heat pump, that means not only moving heat from inside the home to outside but also moving heat from outside to inside. Basically, the refrigerant undergoes a series of phase shifts from a cool liquid to a hot gas (and vice-versa) in order to redistribute heat from one side of the ventilation system to the other.

A ductless heat pump adds another cool feature: no ductwork! You’re probably wondering how this is possible. It’s possible because while the outdoor unit remains roughly similar to an ordinary heat pump, the indoor units are handsome and sleek mounted blowers that condition the individual room. You’ll be able to cool and heat your home with a ductless heat pump.

It’s Built for Our Climate

As you know, the weather tends to be relatively moderate here in the Portland area. That makes the heat pump a good option. In other climates with extreme temperature differentials, heat pumps tend to falter because the outdoor temperature is either too hot or too cold. In these cases, the heat pump’s technology cannot adequately pull from or disperse heat into the outdoors.

A heat pump in our climate works well. And because a heat pump allows for greater energy efficiency than other forms of HVAC systems, you can save money over time with its installation. Just be sure to have it designed and installed by a professional.

Flexible Comfort

A ductless heat pump is advantageous in yet another way. While any centralized HVAC system can be zoned, which means it can be divided into distinct zones, each one of which is separately heated and cooled, a ductless system offers a bit more control. You can simply turn one unit on in one room and turn it off in another. They work particularly well in manufactured homes, as well.
