Ductless Heating in Colorado Springs, CO by Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning

The majority of central home heating systems are "forced–air" systems: they use a blower motor to send heated air out through a network of ventilation ducts and distribute it to the rooms. However, ductwork is not always necessary for a forced–air heater. The invention of the ductless mini split heat pump permits homeowners to enjoy the power of a forced–air central heater without the drawbacks that often come from ductwork: energy loss, low indoor air quality, and space consumption.

How Ductless Heating Works

As the name indicates, ductless mini split heat pumps are a type of heat pump, and they operate in a similar fashion to air conditioners: they shift heat from one place to another. The principle difference between a standard heat pump and a ductless mini split heat pump is that the ductless system does not use a single indoor unit that connects to the ventilation system. Instead, the outdoor unit links to a series of indoor blower units that are set up in different rooms of a house. Each of these blowers contains its own fan and refrigerant coil to condition the air and then send that heated air straight into the room—without using any ductwork. You can choose to have as many blowers as you want for your home so you can have the even distribution of warmth necessary for comfort.

The Advantages of a Ductless Split System

Here are some of the reasons to consider installing ductless heating for your home:

  • Both heating and cooling: Because ductless split systems are heat pumps, they have the benefit of also working as air conditioners. You only need to make one adjustment to switch the system over to cooling mode so that it removes heat from the inside of the room and deposits it outside. You have two comfort solutions in one.
  • Energy savings: A ductless heating system will save you money in two ways. First, the lack of ducts means a reduction in energy loss along the length of the ventilation system, and no worries about losing heat due to damaged ductwork. Second, the blowers can be operated independent of each other, so you only need to send heat to rooms that require it.
  • Better indoor air quality: Here’s another advantage of going without ductwork: the air that comes straight from the blowers doesn’t have to travel through air passages that can become contaminated with dust, dirt, dander, and other particles. Ductless heating is beneficial for comfort and health, especially if people with asthma and allergies live in your home.
