Ductless Heat Pumps are Efficient & Affordable – Portland, OR
What is a Ductless Mini Split?
Different from a central HVAC a ductless mini split is a zoning system, which means they are perfect for cooling and heating specific area’s of your home. These units are also referred to as a ductless heat pump and a mini split ac.
The ductless mini split gives homeowners a huge advantage since it does not require ductwork which would add an extra cost. It’s not only affordable but also energy efficient. This type of system use’s approximately 25%-50% less energy compared to other heating and cooling systems.
Also when looking at heating and cooling systems, the ductless mini split is a lot smaller and gives more flexibility in where it can be placed. The indoor units are small and are usually mounted on a wall. The outdoor unit is similar to the size of a large briefcase, which makes it not as noticable as other systems.
What to look for When Purchasing a Mini Split AC or Heat Pump System
Since there are no mini split systems that only provide heating, you will have to choose between a mini split ac and a mini split heat pump.
Due to weather conditions here in Portland, OR and in the Northwest we will almost always recommend purchasing a mini split heat pump. A heat pump is really your best option since you will be only cooling your home a couple months our of the year.
