The same way a regular AC unit does, only there are no ducts involved.

How portable are these type of units?

In prior thread, it was mentioned that some of the high-end motor coaches having a more residential/central system, I wonder if they are using something like this? Those condensers are pretty small.

Motorhomes use a unit similar to a window unit. With duct work attached.

Thank you for sharing your expertise, even if it dashes my hopes...

We have several of those units in our warehouse facility. ...being ductless the disadvantage is the air handler basically manages one room or area only...

They are quite quiet tho and pump out a significant ammount of cold air...

The heat pump function is so/so.....if its REAL cold out it just wont warm the air enough to be comfortable....at least not for us....

Any heat pump is so/so when it's REAL cold out. That's because there's no heat to pump. Most residential heat pumps switch on electric heating elements when it gets down close to 32 degF.

We installed heat pumps in a town house complex a while ago. When winter came on Long Island the owners went crazy with $1000.00 per month electric bills.

Yes...this exactly...and most residential units HAVE an elect element. ..all of our mitsubishi units dont....so we have to run the big shop furnaces...the ductless units are awesome in auxiliary applications or when pre existing construction negates the installing of ducts...basically they are 2 part window units....that dont require a window...lol...I put one in my garage so i could use it in the summer ..even though its not isulated it will hold 75 most days where as previously it would EASILY hit 120-130 In there on the hottest summer days....
