Should I Choose a Ductless Heat Pump for My Cincinnati Home?


Heat pump systems are highly efficient, and offer reliable heating and cooling for Cincinnati homes and businesses. There are several equipment options available, though the two main system types to choose from are ductless and ducted heat pump systems.

Ductless mini-split heat pump systems are a flexible, popular options. Home and business owners throughout the Cincinnati area choose these systems for a variety of reasons. Below are some of the advantages a ductless heat pump can offer you:

  • Ductless heat pumps can be installed in a number of applications. As their name suggests, they do not require ductwork. This makes them a good option for heating and cooling in areas where no ductwork exists, or where it would be cost-prohibitive to extend the duct system. Ductless mini-splits are great for room additions.
  • Ductless heat pumps offer zoned heating and cooling. In a ductless system, each area of the home or business is equipped with its own air handler, yet each is connected to a shared heat pump. The heating and cooling for each zone can be controlled on its own, without affecting conditions in other areas.
  • Ductless heat pumps prevent air quality issues associated with ducted systems. In a ducted heat pump system, air circulates throughout the home, where it carries dust and pollutants from room to room. In a ducted system, you don’t have to worry about contaminants from one area moving to others. For this reason, ducted systems are the better option for a household with those who have asthma and allergies.
