Resources for Ductless Heat Pumps in Colder Climates

Dec 02, 2020

Cold-climate ductless heat pumps can provide comfortable heating when outdoor temperatures are as low as -15°F. The NW Ductless Heat Pump Project offers multiple resources to help installers select, size, and install these systems to ensure maximum performance and energy savings for their customers. The following list includes resources from NEEA, the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP), and the Center for Energy and Environment. Resources include:

These cold-climate resources are meant to equip installers with the knowledge and tools they need to provide their customers with maximum comfort and savings at the lowest temperatures of the year.

The Project has been offering ductless for cold climate live webinars throughout the last quarter of 2020. The trainings cover recommended installation practices, system sizing and selection using the free HVAC Sizing Tool, and additional ways to maximize ductless heat pump performance. Recordings of these trainings will be available on the Project’s YouTube channel in January 2021.
