Ductless Heat Pumps (Mini Splits)
Ductless Heat Pumps are perfect solutions for clients who:
- Currently heat with electric baseboard.
- Wish to supplement existing boiler system.
- Don't have a central air handling system.
How Ductless Heat Pumps Work:
Tubing runs through a small opening in the wall or ceiling and connects the indoor and outdoor units.
Refrigerant in the tubes extract heat from the outside air and brings it inside, quietly distributing warm air to the interior space.
In the summer months, the process is reversed, warm air is removed from your home. Which means you get a fully functional air conditioning (AC) unit at no additional cost!
Size - Ductless heat pumps are small, so they are flexible for zoning, and heating/cooling individual rooms.
Ductless - These units have no ducts. So they avoid the energy losses associated with the duct work of central forced air systems.
Excellent Add-On Option – For homes with "non-ducted" heating systems. Such as hot water heat (hydronic), radiant panels, and space heaters.
Efficiency – A heat pump moves heat instead of generating heat, which means more energy efficiency. The system works best as it stays constant, as you can keep the system running continuously without worrying about sky-high energy bills.
With newer technologies exclusive to E.T. Mechanical, and expert installation by our extensively trained service team, our ductless heat pumps saved our clients up to 60% on their heating costs last winter.
Heat Pumps - Frequently Asked Questions
Every heat pump is different, it is best to check the temperature rating of your specific heat pump model. In colder climates (Canada), cold climate heat pumps are installed that are rated for colder temperatures. Depending on the specific heat pump this can be from -15 °C, or even as low as -30°C.
Heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient ways to heat your home. Instead of using energy to generate heat, it extracts heat from the outside air and transfers it into your home by means of refrigerant that is circulated by a compressor. A ductless heat pump can save you 30 – 40% or more on your utility bill.
With the added benefit of being able to cool your home in the summer months. Heat Pumps not only helps you save, but contribute to year round comfort.
Don’t take our word for it.... This is what our customers say!
"Liked the substantial savings, as far as the heating season in the coldest months. I’ve saved about 100 dollars a month when compared with last year. Found the installation very neat and tidy, and they were very friendly and courteous. I would use E.T. Mechanical again."
