Ductless Heating


Serving Idaho Falls & the Surrounding Areas

Ductless heating offers you the convenience of having a single system provide both heating and cooling for your home, as ductless heaters uses heat pump technology. Thanks to a component called a reversing valve, heat pumps can switch between heating and cooling, all with the touch of a button on your dual–mode thermostat. The heat is delivered via independent indoor blowers that mount flush to walls and ceilings, and they are connected to your outdoor unit by a conduit drilled into an exterior wall. Simply turn on your indoor blower and your heating process begins.

Because ductless systems can both heat and cool, they can suffer more wear and tear than separate heating and cooling systems do. As such, it’s important to have access to trained and certified experts, like the ones at Advanced Home Services, for repair, replacement and maintenance.

The Key Component: The Reversing Valve

The reason a heat pump can both heat and cool while an air conditioner just cools lay in a component called the reversing valve. This valve can change the directional flow of the refrigerant in your heat pump system, and when the refrigerant changes direction, the mode (heating or cooling), also changes. The valve is cylindrical and using a sliding mechanism to change the flow of the refrigerant. But as the homeowner, all you have to do to set the mode change in motion is press a button on your thermostat. Sometimes the valve can become stuck, at which time it will be necessary to call one of our experts for help.

Ductless Mini Split Systems

Ductless mini split systems use refrigerant to move heat out of a home as it absorbs heat from the indoor air handler mounted on the wall. There may be several of these indoor air handlers in a home, and they can provide heat too. Refrigerant reverses to move heat into a home, not just out of it, and this works even in very low outdoor temperatures.
