MrCool, What Does Ductless Heat Pump Mean?
Heat pumps are just like air conditioners with one big exception. An air conditioner can only cool, but a heat pump can cool and reverse cycle to heat too. They’re a great tool for moderate climate heating. Plus, the latest generation of energy efficient heat pumps can really help a frustrated homeowner get their utility bill under control.
So, where does ‘ductless’ fit in all that?
Any modern home built in the United States is going to have air ducts as part of a central heating and air conditioning system. Imagine ducts as the blood vessels of the system, transporting hot or cold air to all the rooms in your home.
What happens when you live in an older home built before central air systems were common?
