How Heat Pumps Work
Types of Heat Pumps
Before installing a new heat pump, you need to understand the different types of systems available. Learn about them below.
Mini-split heat pump: Often widely known as ductless heat pumps, these systems feature an outdoor unit that captures and transfers heat from the outside to one or more mounted head units indoors. These units offer multi-zone heating or cooling.
Ducted mini-split heat pump: This unit works the same way as a ductless mini-split system, except that the air is transferred to a single head situated indoors. The ducts and vents circulate the air throughout the home or property.
Central heat pump: This system transfers heat from an outdoor unit to an indoor unit and circulates the air through a connection of ducts to reach all the areas of your home or property.
