A ductless split consists of a compressor and condenser. They are installed on the outside of the building and 'ductwork' is eliminated by using thin copper tubing that pumps refrigerant directly to a wall mounted unit inside the building.
Does a Ductless Split 'heat' pump work as air conditioner too?
YES! A Heat pump is not just for heat. A Ductless Split works as an air-conditioner in the summer and supplies heat in the winter.The result? Efficient cooling and heating year-round.
Will I have to do major renovations to my home to install a Ductless Split?
No! Copper tubing running through a small 3 to 4-inch opening in the wall easily connects the indoor and outdoor units. Refrigerant is cycled through the lines from the outdoor condensing unit to the indoor evaporator unit, where the air is quietly distributed into the interior space.

Is a geothermal system a heat pump?
YES! Geothermal heating systems are heat pumps. Instead of using the air for their heat source they use the earth as it is a constant source of heat below 6 ft. The outdoor geothermal loops for a geothermal system can either be placed in trenches or drilled wells.
Will I have to change out my existing duct work to put in a new ducted air source or geothermal heat pump?
Maybe....Most duct work in homes that had oil fired heat may be too small for a new more efficient air sourced heat pump system. The new heat pumps require moving a larger volume of air through out a home at a more moderate temperature.
