What is a Ductless Heat Pump?

A ductless heat pump, also known as a mini-split system, offers flexible, energy-efficient heating and cooling without the need for extensive ductwork. It comprises two main units:

  • Indoor Unit: Mounted on your wall or ceiling, this unit delivers conditioned air into your room.
  • Outdoor Unit: Houses the compressor and exchanges heat with the outside air.

Ductless heat pumps are renowned for their ability to provide zone-based comfort, allowing you to tailor the temperature in each room independently.

Benefits of a Ductless Heat Pump

  • Energy Efficiency: Ductless systems reduce energy waste associated with ductwork, significantly lowering your utility bills.
  • Flexible Installation: Ideal for homes without existing ductwork, additions, or targeted comfort needs.
  • Versatility: Provides both heating and cooling for year-round comfort.
  • Whisper-Quiet Operation: Enjoy a peaceful home environment.
  • Improved Air Quality: Built-in filtration systems help remove allergens and pollutants.
