Adjusting your thermostat can feel like a constant battle. Turn up the heat enough to warm the living room and your bedroom turns into a sauna. Try to save energy by keeping the AC on low and you end up sweating every time you walk upstairs. Ductless heat pumps offer more customizable heating and cooling — in one room, several rooms, or throughout your whole house. A ductless heat pump installation from Jacobs Heating & Air Conditioning leaves you with a sleek, efficient system that keeps you comfortable in any weather.
Modern, efficient, and eco-friendly, there’s a lot to love about ductless heat pumps. Unlike traditional systems, they don’t blow air through ducts. Instead, small indoor units control the temperature in each room. Heat pumps use less energy because they transfer heat rather than creating it. This makes them ideal for people who live in mild climates. With the Portland area’s wet winters and warm, dry summer season, it’s a match made in heaven.
A ductless heat pump provides extra-precise temperature and humidity control using just the energy it needs and no more.
Each room has an individual remote so you can easily fine-tune your comfort level.
All you need is a small hole in the wall to connect your indoor unit to a compressor outside.
Ductless systems offer precise control without being loud.
With utility incentives for customers throughout the Portland area, there has never been a better time to update your home’s HVAC system.
Ductless heating and cooling systems are split between an indoor unit and an outdoor compressor. These systems are typically smaller than traditional central AC systems. That’s why we call them “mini.” The right system for your home depends on the number of spaces — or “zones” — that you want to heat or cool in your house.
A single zone mini split makes sense when you have one not-too-huge area where you want temperature control. It could be a bedroom that never quite gets cool enough. Or it could be a new home addition or backyard ADU that doesn’t have its own HVAC system yet. A simple, compact, single zone system can be an efficient and cost-effective option.
If you need to heat and cool a larger home with multiple rooms and potentially more than one story, you’ll probably be more comfortable with a multi zone system. The good news is, these systems let you manage your comfort level in each room using a remote or even a home automation app.
