If you are looking for a more efficient way to heat your Maryland or Washington, DC home without the major investment of a geothermal or air-source heat pump, consider installing a ductless heat pump. Ductless heat pumps are easy to install and provide massive energy savings, making them a great primary heat source for electrically heated homes!
Benefits of Ductless Heat Pumps
In addition to being very cost-effective, ductless heat pumps are extremely easy to install in your home, no matter how it is set up. They do not require any expensive or invasive ductwork; instead, all you need to install a ductless heat pump is a three-inch hole in your wall or ceiling. Ductless heat pumps distribute air much more evenly than conventional heating systems as well, eliminating hot and cool spots and making your home much more comfortable.
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.
To increase efficiency, ductless heat pumps can be arranged in “zones” that can be individually heated or cooled, preventing costly over-heating that is common with conventional central heating systems. Ductless heat pumps eliminate air leaks that commonly occur in air ducts. Ductless heat pumps can also be combined with existing electric baseboards in bedrooms and bathrooms to provide additional heat when necessary. It’s also very easy to customize the zones – just choose where you want to install the indoor units and you’re good!

Best Ways to Use a Ductless Heat Pump
Ductless heat pumps can replace or supplement existing zonal 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 are planning 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 be added to your existing heat system and 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.
Many new homes being built these days are specifically designed to take advantage of the capabilities of ductless heat pumps. Systems are usually installed in individual zones to make installation even simpler.
