Ductless Heat Pump Program

What is a ductless heat pump system?

A Ductless Heat Pump is a highly efficient heating and cooling system. It is easily installed as a new primary heat source for electrically heated homes. These systems heat and cool homes at a fraction of the cost of electric resistance heat. Ductless Heat Pumps are much safer, quieter and heat rooms evenly (no more hot or cool spots!).

Ductless Heat Pumps do not require expensive and invasive ductwork. They require only a three-inch opening in the wall or ceiling. Installation is as simple as mounting the indoor and outdoor units, connecting the refrigerant lines, and making a few electrical connections.
