Ductless heat pumps are a smart choice whether you want to control different zones in your home independently, leverage an existing central system, or replace inefficient electric heat (baseboards or Cadets).
Each ductless heat pump can provide heating (and cooling) comfort for a zone of 200-1000 sq. ft., depending on the size and layout of the space. Ductless heat pumps can be an excellent, cost-effective solution to supplement an existing heating and cooling system, especially if your home has an area that is consistently too cold or too warm. Examples include:
- Rooms with no or poorly functioning vents
- Older homes with one vent serving the entire upstairs
- The room at the end of the house that warm air never quite reaches
While all ductless heat pumps circulate air throughout their zone to evenly distribute warm and cool air, more advanced units perform a thermal scan of the zone to direct warm air to cold spots.
If you already have a good duct system, but your furnace is failing or too expensive to run, a ducted mini-split can give you the same even air distribution as a central system, but with far more efficiency. With your indoor unit sitting in the place of your furnace, you’ll experience efficient, comfortable, low-cost heating and cooling throughout your home.
Some homes without existing ductwork avoid expensively and invasively adding a duct system by using a ductless heat pump to heat and cool the entire home. We can help you determine if this option is best for you.
Ductless heat pumps vs. baseboards, Cadet heaters and ceiling heating
What do those other heating options all have in common? They heat poorly, are incredibly expensive to run, and don’t offer air conditioning. If your house has one of these heat sources, a ductless heat pump is a great way to add comfort and air conditioning while cutting your heating bills by as much as 50%.
Ductless heat pumps cut your electric bills, eliminate cold spots, and eliminate the dramatic temperature swings you may experience with other heating systems. In the depths of winter and the height of summer, you’ll be amazed at the difference.
