Why Ductless?

A ductless system heats your home more evenly, efficiently and quietly than electric resistance heaters (think baseboards or wall heaters) – and provides home cooling when the summer temperatures rise. For a small electrically heated home a single-zone ductless system can serve the main area of the house, with existing electric baseboards remaining in bedrooms and bathrooms.

Benefits of Going Ductless

Monthly savings on your energy bill

Heat your home for a fraction of the cost of electric furnaces or baseboard, wall and ceiling heat – reducing monthly electrical bills by up to 50 percent.

Increased comfort year-round

Warm or cool air is distributed more efficiently and evenly than with traditional electric heaters, making your living areas more comfortable.

Heating and cooling in one system

Ductless systems come with built-in cooling capabilities, providing you with air conditioning during warm summer months.

Easy, low-cost installation

Your new system can be installed hassle-free, with no expensive or invasive ductwork required, and can be completed in half a day.

Rebates from electric utilities

Many utilities offer rebates of up to $1,500 on ductless installations, helping their customers improve home comfort energy-efficiency.

How It Works

Ductless heating and cooling systems are two-way heat pumps that transfer heat between outdoor and indoor air to create a comfortable temperature in your home. Using a refrigerant vapor compression cycle – like a common household refrigerator, ductless systems collect heat from outside and deliver it inside the house when your home needs to be heated, and do the opposite when summer heat requires a cooling cycle. Ductless systems use variable speed compressors with inverter technology (AC to DC) in order to continuously match the heating or cooling load. Each system includes three main components:
