Ductless Heat Pumps are Efficient & Affordable -Vancouver & Portland
What is a Ductless Heat Pump?
A ductless mini-split is a zonal heating and cooling system. As opposed to central HVAC, zone systems heat and cool specific areas of the home. There is a variety of names these units are called. Two common names are the ductless heat pump and mini split ac.
Ductless heat pumps got their name because they do not require duct work. They do require a small refrigeration line from the indoor units to the outdoor unit. This is a huge benefit to homeowners because duct work can greatly increase the cost of an new HVAC system.
Ductless Vancouver WA units are also a lot smaller than traditional central air units. The outdoor unit is about the size of a large briefcase and sits outside the home. The indoor units are also small and usually mounted on the walls inside of the home.
The mini-split AC and ductless heat pumps are both efficient and affordable. Ductless units use about 25%-50% less energy than central hvac and electric resistance heat. More on ductless heat pump Vancouver WA.
What to look for When Purchasing a Mini-Split AC or Heat Pump System
You will first need to decide if you want a mini-split AC or a mini split heat pump. That is, do you want a unit that heats and cools or only cools? There are no mini splits that only heat.
For the Vancouver, WA and Portland market we almost always recommend a mini split heat pump over a mini split ac. Northwest conditions require frequent use of heating systems. On the other hand, you will only need to cool your home a couple months out of the year which is why a heat pump is your best option.
After you decide between an AC or a heat pump, you will need to decide how many zones (heads) you want in the home. The basic mini-split system is a single zone. Single zones have one outdoor unit and one indoor unit. Outdoor units can hold multiple indoor units.
The ductless brands we carry can have up to four zones on one single outdoor unit. Most homes only require one to two zones. However, once a system reaches three to four zones, the system price is often comparable to a central HVAC system.
