The major difference between a ductless heat pump or a ductless air conditioning system is that the ductless heat pump actually is a two-way system. It can draw hot air out of a room to create it much colder and pull it in to warm it up again, also to create the cooler air in another part of the house. Ductless heat pumps come in many different shapes, sizes, and energy usage rates. Choosing one depends on your location, budget, and energy usage. Also, if you are looking to save money, ductless heat pumps can be great because they don’t use ducts at all! Here are some tips to help you find ductless heat pumps in Canada.
Ductless heat pumps are made in Canada by three companies – UPower, Moen, and Trane. Each manufacturer has a slightly different product, but they are all ductless heat pumps. This type of cooling and heating equipment is used for residential and commercial applications and have the same components as other types of cooling and heating systems. In fact, most ductless heat pumps in Canada have the same components as other types of cooling and heating systems.
One popular type of ductless heat pump in Canada is the mini-split unit. These are used primarily in small residential houses and apartments, as well as condos and townhomes. Mini-splits work by drawing hot air out of a building or room and then bringing it back in through ductwork. Typically, mini splits have been designed with two individual units – a core unit and a coverless extractor unit that pull air through individual ducts.
Another type of ductless heat pump in Canada is the central air system. A ductless central air system is an energy-efficient version of the standard central air system. The most popular ductless heat pump in Canada is the Trane air system – which is designed for both home use and commercial use.
All ductless heat pumps will draw in air from the inside of the building or room and push it through ductwork to the exterior of the building or room. The air is heated and pushed out of buildings through ducts. These ducts may be designed to remove moisture from the inside of the building or room or to remove heated air from the outside of the building or room and push it back inside. Some ductless heat pumps have dual functions; they can move air to the outside of a building to provide cooling, or they can move hot air from the indoors to provide cooling. The most modern versions of these units have what is called “positive displacement” technology – meaning that the incoming air is warmed before being pushed back inside.
Ductless heat pumps provide significant energy savings compared to other heating and cooling systems. They require virtually no maintenance or servicing, they are quiet in operation, and they can run nearly silently. They are extremely flexible and can be installed nearly anywhere. The ductless heat pumps can be placed in any room of your house or building where there is an available duct. Heat pump manufacturers recommend using ductless heat pumps in rooms that are unused at all times but are usually ductless because this lowers the possibility of having the unit damaged by moisture.
