Is a ductless heat pump a better choice than a traditional ducted heat pump? Our team of experts are here to help you navigate the many options with ductless heat pumps!

Ducted VS Ductless Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are an excellent choice for homes in the Portland and Vancouver area. Increased energy efficiency, and long-term savings are the right choice if you own your home.

Ductless has several options of indoor units to choose from such as ceiling mount units or wall mount units. You also do not need ductwork which makes ductless a great option for certain homes.

Traditional heat pumps systems have ductwork and a furnace.

Pros and Cons

  • If you have ceiling or radiant heat, ductless is a great option if you don’t have ductwork in your home.
  • You will need multiple indoor units inside the house mounted in each room, depending on the size of the home. This may not be aesthetically pleasing.
  • Ducted heat pumps equipment is out of sight in a garage, attic, crawlspace, or mechanical room.
  • Ductless heat pumps are an excellent option if you have a bonus room that is hard to heat or cool or if you have an older or historic home without ductwork.

“Area Heating and Cooling has been a good company to work with so far. Mike came out to give us an estimate and he was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He worked with us to help us understand what units would be best for our home and to get the best value for what we can afford.
The installation earlier this week went smoothly and the technicians and electricians were all great.
So far the mini splits are working very well and we are happy we had them installed”
