Ductless heat pump facts

A ductless heat pump is a highly energy-efficient heating and cooling system that does not require ducts to carry conditioned air. They run efficiently and without energy losses associated with the ductwork of a central forced-air system. Going ductless is the most efficient option for areas of your home that you wish to condition in zones, new additions or for newer homes that only require a small space conditioning system.

Other benefits include:

  • Ductless heat pumps use between 25 and 50 percent less energy to heat your home
  • An ultra-quiet fan evenly circulates air, eliminating hot and cold spots
  • Installation in your home is inexpensive, simple and quick, which makes for little or no disruption
  • Ductless systems come standard with air conditioning, so you can get rid of window units
