The Brilliant Basics of Ductless Heating

A ductless heating system is a type of heat pump (which means it provides cooling when needed). But rather than work through a single outdoor unit and one large indoor unit connected to ducts, a ductless mini-split system has the outdoor unit connected to small wall-mounted air handlers around the house. These air handlers heat (or cool) the air and send it directly into the rooms.

How Ductless Heating Can Benefit a Home

A ductless heat pump doesn’t require making major changes to a house to add on ductwork. A ductless heating installation only requires our technicians attach the small air handlers to the walls of different rooms, then connect them to the outdoor cabinet. This type of system has several advantages for the right homes:

  • Great for older homes without ducts, add-on rooms, log cabins, and room conversions
  • Zone control is built right in, so you only heat or cool rooms that need it
  • Eliminate pesky hot and cold spots
  • Lack of ducts reduces heat loss and gain, which can lower energy bills
