What is Ductless, Heating, and Cooling?

Emura Daikin Ductless Heating SystemYou may have heard about ductless heating and cooling systems in the Puyallup, WA area, but if you don’t know exactly what they’re all about, this discussion should be helpful in that regard. Ductless heating and cooling systems are extremely energy-efficient methods of heating and cooling your home, and if you have a ductless heat pump installed, that is a unit that can manage both heating and cooling during warm and cold seasons. If you currently have some kind of electrical heating systems like wall heaters, electric baseboards, or an electric furnace, converting over to a ductless heating and cooling system can save you a ton of money in the course of a year of utility costs.


Ductless heat pumps operate by extracting heat from the surrounding air outside and piping it inside the home to generate warmth in the interior. In the warm season, this entire process is reversed, and warm air from the interior of the home is pumped outside, so as to make it cooler inside. This is all done in a much less obtrusive manner than traditional heating or cooling systems, since a ductless heat pump system is far quieter, and is barely noticeable even when at maximum operation.


One of the first things of note about a ductless heating and cooling system is the fact that it is actually without any network of ducts which would be necessary for the transfer of conditioned air throughout the home in traditional heating or air conditioning system. Because it uses no ducts, it takes up a lot less space, and there is no possibility of debris or other material becoming trapped in the ducts to obstruct the flow of air, and to degrade the efficiency of the system.
All that’s really needed in a ductless system is a small hole in the wall of each room that is intended to receive conditioned air. This fact also makes it a much easier system to install, and it is much less invasive to the home itself, carrying a much smaller footprint during installation. Since a ductless heat pump is constructed so that it can provide warmth in the cold weather and cool in the hot weather, there is only a single home comfort system needed, rather than both a heating and cooling system.
Not only does that save you on installed equipment, but you also have only one system to maintain on an ongoing basis. In addition to all the benefits already described, the city of Puyallup, WA is also making available rebates to those homeowners who switch over from their electrical heating systems to a ductless heat pump system. This is a prospect which is beneficial to both homeowners and to the energy efficiency of the city itself, since natural resources are conserved on a very impressive basis, and much less energy is needed to supply regional power to area residents.
