Ductless Heating Services in Portland, OR

The idea of whole home heat being delivered with ductwork can be strange to some, but ductless heating is very effective as well as energy efficient. If you have considered using a ductless heating system in your Portland home, or already enjoy one but need to know you have access to trained experts for repair and bi-annual maintenance, you have come to the right place! Our NATE-certified technicians have years of experience working with ductless HVAC systems, and we bring this experience right to your door. Ductless heating systems use a heat pump to provide the heating (and cooling) your home needs to be comfortable, so it is critical to work with experts like ours for installation, repair, maintenance and replacement.

Why Ductless Heating Can Be a Great Choice for You

Systems that use heat pumps traditionally do very well in climates that are more temperate during the winter months, like ours. This doesn’t mean that we necessarily have gentle winters – anyone who lives here can certainly tell you we get our fair share of challenging winter weather – but we don’t usually get as frigidly cold as some of our northern neighbors.

Heat pumps provide heat by transferring heat from one location to another, and during the winter, they move the available heat from the outdoors to the indoors with the help of refrigerant and the heat pump technology in the system. So some of the first benefits you’ll get with a heat pump system do not have to use any kind of fossil fuel to heat your home, and the added energy saving of only using a small amount of electricity to run your heat pump.

Using ductless blowers to deliver the air adds more benefits: you won’t have to worry about air loss because there is no ductwork, the heat is customizable because every blower works independently and the system is easily expanded should you add on to your home. But gaining these benefits is very dependent on the technicians you choose for installation, and that’s where our pros come in. We’ll help you correctly size your ductless system and install it so that you can enjoy years of energy efficient warmth!

Why Do Ductless Heating Systems Need Bi–Annual Maintenance?

One of the biggest benefits a ductless heating system has to offer is that it also provides air conditioning during the summer months. This is because the system uses a heat pump. Heat pumps should always be maintained twice a year because even though they are single devices, they do twice the amount of work that separate heating and cooling systems do. As such, they accrue twice the amount of wear and tear. Our experts will provide your heat pump with the full tune–up it needs for both the heating and cooling seasons so that you can count on your heat pump to work optimally and as efficiently as possible. Maintenance also helps to significantly reduce the incidence of repair as well as extend the life of your equipment. But we don’t offer this service just for the ductless heating systems we install, we are here to help all customers in the Portland area maintain their ductless heating systems. All you have to do is call us!
