Ductless Heat Pumps

Why install a ductless heat pump?

Ductless heating and cooling has been used for decades overseas and is rapidly gaining popularity in the U.S. Ductless heat pumps are ideal for:

  • Homes without ductwork or with old, tired ducts

  • Replacing electric baseboards, radiant heat or wall heaters

  • Eliminating noisy and unsightly window air conditioners

Special offers and incentives can help reduce your out-of-pocket costs.


  • Energy savings of up to 40 percent*

  • Room-by-room comfort, with individual thermostats controlled by a remote

  • Steady, even temperatures

  • Attractive indoor unit can be ceiling- or wall-mounted or free standing

  • Compact outdoor unit

  • Simple installation in a day or less

  • Whisper quiet

  • Better than window air conditioners with higher capacity cooling

*Compared to a standard electric furnace. Individual circumstances will vary. Ask PGE or your dealer for more information.

How does a ductless heat pump work?

Enjoy whisper-quiet cooling and heating without ductwork.

A: Indoor unit directs cool air where needed during the summer. In winter, the system works in reverse to heat your home.

B: Multiple indoor units provide zoned comfort.

C: Remote control makes it easy to adjust the temperature.

D: Outdoor unit pulls heat from the outside air and moves it inside during cool months. Even when the temperature is as low as 5°F, there’s enough heat in the air to warm your home.

“The individual units have sensors that adjust the temperature when you enter or leave an area. My house is a lot warmer in winter.”
Walt Hollands, Portland, who replaced electric baseboards with energy-efficient ductless heating and cooling
