Graham Hendra explains what the difference is between a split and a mono bloc heat pump.
A split heat pump is a type of heat pump that consists of two separate units: an outdoor unit that contains the compressor and the condenser, and an indoor unit that contains the evaporator and the air handler. The two units are connected by a set of refrigerant lines, which transfer the heat between the units.
A monobloc heat pump, on the other hand, is a single, self-contained unit that contains both the compressor and the evaporator. The outdoor unit also contains the condenser and the air handler.
The main difference between a split and a monobloc heat pump is the location of the compressor and the evaporator. In a split heat pump, the compressor is located outdoors, while the evaporator is located indoors. In a monobloc heat pump, both the compressor and the evaporator are located in the outdoor unit.
Split heat pumps are generally more efficient and have a higher COP (coefficient of performance) than monobloc heat pumps. However, monobloc heat pumps are more compact and easier to install, as they do not require the installation of separate indoor and outdoor units.
