Benefits of Ductless Heat Pumps
In addition to being very cost-effective, ductless heat pumps are extremely easy to install—all we need is a three-inch hole in your wall or ceiling. Since they directly heat or cool the room they’re installed in, ductless heat pumps distribute air much more evenly than conventional heating systems, eliminating hot and cool spots and making your home much more comfortable. They also eliminate air leaks common to ducted heating and cooling systems for added comfort and efficiency.
Ductless heat pumps can be controlled via a remote control, which also functions as a programmable thermostat. Systems offer many different modes of operation, including quiet, high, or timer. If you prefer, you can have wall-mounted controls installed as well.
Ductless heat pumps can be arranged in customizable “zones” that can be individually heated or cooled, preventing costly over-heating. Ductless heat pumps can also be combined with existing electric baseboards in bedrooms and bathrooms to provide additional heat when necessary.
Ductless Heat Pump Repair
If you find that your ductless heat pump doesn’t heat as well as it used to or if the pump makes strange noises when it turns on, you may need to have your system repaired. At Michael Bonsby Heating & Air Conditioning, we can repair any brand of ductless heat pump to ensure that your system’s efficiency and heating capacity lasts for years.
Best Ways to Use a Ductless Heat Pump
Ductless heat pumps can replace or supplement existing zoned heating units such as electric baseboards. For instance, a single ductless heat pump can be used to heat main areas of your home, while existing electric baseboards can be used to heat bedrooms and bathrooms.
If you plan on adding an addition to your home, or converting an attic into a living space, you should consider installing a ductless heat pump as well. A ductless heat pump can provide effective and efficient heating and cooling to your new room without the hassle of extending your home’s ductwork or adding new electric heaters.

Ductless Heating FAQs
Where can I use my ductless heat pump?
Replacing existing systems – ductless systems are commonly used to replace or supplement inefficient electric baseboard, wall or ceiling units, as well as wood stoves and other space heaters such as propane or kerosene. Many people like to use a single system to serve the main area of the house while leaving existing electric baseboards in bedrooms and bathrooms.
Room additions – ductless systems are extremely easy to add to room additions or remodels. Rather than extending your home’s existing ductwork or pipes, or adding electric resistance heaters, the ductless system can provide efficient heating and cooling.
New construction – new home designs can be adapted to take advantage of a ductless system’s many benefits. One or more systems might be installed in various “zo+nes” of the house to simplify installation and minimize refrigerant line length.
Are ductless systems efficient?
Yes! Ductless systems use 25 to 50 percent less energy than electric resistance and forced air systems. Three key factors account for the high efficiency of a ductless system:
- Ductless systems allow the user to control each heating/cooling zone independently, eliminating the costly over-heating and cooling common to central air systems. Why pay to heat or cool rooms that are not currently occupied?
- Central air systems can lose as much as 30 percent of their efficiency through air leaks and conduction in the ductwork. Ductless systems use inverter-driven, variable speed compressors that allow the system to maintain constant indoor temperatures by running continuously at higher or lower speeds. Thus, the system can ramp-up or down without great losses in operating efficiency, avoiding the energy intensive on/off cycling common in electric resistance and forced air systems.
- Modern ductless systems have ultra-high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios (SEER) between 16 and 22, and Heating Seasonal Performance Factors (HSPF) between 8.5 and 11.
