Ductless heating and cooling systems are highly efficient products that deliver warm or cool air directly into different zones in your home, instead of routing it through ducts first. You may also hear them called “mini-split” heat pumps; “Mini,” because they are suitable for conditioning smaller areas, and “split,” because they consist of a separate outside compressor and one or more inside air-handling units.
Since it uses heat pump technology, a mini-split system is very energy efficient. It uses an estimated 50 to 60 percent less energy than electric resistance heating systems.
Installation of some new ductless heat pump mini-split systems may qualify for a rebate from the cooperative; see the rebate form for mini-split heating systems to see if your ductless heat pump choice will qualify.
