How to Heat Your Home without Ductwork

You may think that using a boiler system, or even a fireplace, is your only option if you don’t want to use air ducts in your home. This is not the case. You can still enjoy the prompt and effective heating that forced air allows for, without the need for a single air duct in your home. Ductless mini splits feature an outdoor unit, much like those in a traditional heat pump system—and ductless heating systems do use heat pump technology—and this unit can support up to four blowers within the house. These blowers connect to the outdoor unit via power, refrigerant, and any necessary drainage lines. The refrigerant in the unit outside absorbs heat from the air. That refrigerant is further compressed, and it travels to the blowers, which use its thermal energy to heat air that they blow directly into the rooms in which they are installed.

Why Opt for Ductless Heating

Not only does the heat transfer process used by heat pumps allow for the very efficient heating of one’s home, but the ductless aspect of this system itself offers a few benefits as well. First of all, you won’t have to worry about leaky ductwork leading to a drop in energy efficiency. Additionally, leaky ductwork won’t be able to allow pollutants into the system, only to spread them throughout the house, since there is no ductwork that can leak.
