What you need to know about Ductless Heat Pumps in Portland

When a traditional heat pump is simply not the answer to your heating problems, consider a Mini-Split heat pump. This system is perfect for Portland homes requiring a ductless heat system, or for a room addition where extending current ductwork is either too costly or simply not an option. Mini-splits are small and offer the flexibility to heat and cool individual rooms.

Depending on the size of the outdoor unit, one such unit can allow as many as four indoor air handling units. And because each zone has its own thermostat, you can heat or cool a specific space instead of an entire area, saving energy and money.

Thing for Portlanders to Consider when Choosing a Heat Pump…

Ductless heat pumps (DHP) are designed using a highly efficient heating and cooling system that does not require traditional air ducts. The 2-way pump transfers heat between the inside and outside of the building using a refrigerant to vaporize the compression cycle.
Homeowners can install a ductless heat pump even if they want to maintain their old heating units.  While the DHP acts as the primary heat source, the old heater can provide supplemental heat to the home.

One advantage to installing ductless he at pumps is energy expense reduction. DHPs operate using 25% to 50% less energy than a traditional air forced system. Since ductless heat pumps use inverter-driver variable speed compressors, you can maintain consistent indoor temperatures by running it at a lower speed.

The average cost of an installed ductless heat pump ranges from $3,000 to $5,000, which includes one indoor heating/cooling zone. Compared to the savings and incentives, homeowners who install this system end up saving money in the long run – plus this system can run for over 20 years!

Homeowners who install ductless heat pumps may be eligible for federal tax credits of up to $1,500 and an additional $750 incentive from the Washington State Cash for Appliance Program.

Selecting The Right Ductless Heat Pumps for Your Portland Home or Office

Ductless heat pumps provide you with the highest level in comfort. Typically most home or business owners consider a DHP installation when:

  • Replacing a current zonal heating system: ductless heat pumps replace electric baseboard, wall or ceiling units, wood stoves or other heating systems
  • There’s a room addition: instead of extending the home or office’s current ductwork, a mini-split ductless heat pump is an ideal solution. A mini-splits’ main advantage is its small size and flexibility for heating and cooling specific areas – plus the  easy hook-up provides for a seamless transition between room to room
  • It’s a new construction: with DHP’s savings and innovative technology, many new home or commercial building owners are opting to install ductless heat pumps
