Investing in a Ductless Heat Pump

Air ducts are an important part of most heating and cooling systems. However, an average house can lose 25% or more of its energy through ductwork. That is a lot of money and precious resources escaping through the ducts in your house! The best solution to this problem comes in the form of the ductless heat pump and cooling system, an innovative new way of keeping your home as comfortable as possible.

A ductless heat pump (or mini split) can heat and cool your home without ductwork. They typically consist of a wall-mounted indoor unit which is connected to an outdoor condenser. These ductless units can provide heating as well as air conditioning, so your home is always the temperature you want.

Depending on your needs, you can choose between a single-room mini split ductless unit that will control the temperature in a designated area of your home or a multi-room unit that will let you use between two and eight indoor units for ultimate climate control across your whole home. Multi unit ductless heat pumps are connected to a single outdoor condenser allowing you to control multiple “zones” within your home.

Ductless heat pumps are incredibly energy efficient and can both cool your home in the summer and heat it during some of winter’s harshest days. To get the ductless heating and cooling system your home deserves, contact the professional HVAC contractors at Sauve Heating and Air Conditioning today!

Answers to Frequently Asked HVAC Questions

Ductless Heat Pumps FAQ

Unlike traditional HVAC systems, a ductless heat pump, also called ductless HVAC systems or mini-split systems are HVAC systems which can heat and cool a room, or your entire home, without ductwork. They usually consist of a wall-mounted indoor unit combined with a condenser, which is outside. Ductless heat pumps or mini-split systems ensure that your home is always the temperature you want.

When it’s time to replace your heating or cooling system, you will inevitably weigh all the options available including more efficient equipment systems. Eco-friendly heating & cooling is a term used to describe heating and cooling systems that use resources more responsibly and efficiently, with both the environment and your wallet in mind.

If you are in the market for a new heating or cooling system, choosing a higher energy efficient system is a good option that benefits the environment and will save you money in the long run. These types of systems include high-efficient natural gas or propane furnaces and heat pumps.

Our gas-burning equipment start at 96% efficient, while our heat pumps are 300-400% efficient. Sauve Heating and Air Conditioning will take the time to go through your options in order to find the system that best suits both your needs and your budget.

A great first step is to seal any drafty windows or doors. If you continue to experience a chill throughout the house, it is possible there is a problem with your furnace or maybe your ductwork. It could be as simple as adjusting how much air is coming out of certain vents, or maybe adding a couple extra vents.

There are a number of factors that could be at play if your house remains cold:

  • Is your furnace the right size and is it working properly?
  • Are there enough supply vents throughout the house and in the proper locations?
  • Are there enough return air vents?
  • Are any vents covered?
  • Is the thermostat registering an accurate assessment of the home?

Sauve Heating and Air Conditioning has a reputation for finding solutions to the toughest problems, something many other companies don't take the time to do. We take our time to find the issue(s) and offer multiple targeted options, usually consisting of a combination of solutions to keep your home comfortable.

Adding insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to add comfort to a home. That said, a properly-sized furnace and adequate distribution system (ductwork) should be able to overcome any lack of insulation.

There are, of course, many different types of HVAC maintenance. For starters, there’s proactive maintenance for your heating & cooling systems.

Common types of proactive maintenance include:

  • Furnace tune-ups
  • Air conditioning tune-ups (and top-offs)
  • Filter maintenance (ensuring that you change filters at the right intervals, and select the right filters, can save you money and help ensure you’re breathing better air)

There’s also the kind of HVAC maintenance that happens when you notice irregularities with your heating or cooling systems. If you’re struggling to reach or maintain the desired temperature in your home or business, we can help with a diagnosis and suggested course of repair.

If you’re experiencing a HVAC emergency, such as a broken A/C or loss of heating, we can dispatch a HVAC technician ASAP to diagnose the issue (e.g. blown fan, broken heating coils, etc.) and repair the furnace or A/C promptly.

  • Heating and cooling a smaller space, addition, or outbuilding.
  • In rooms which are not regularly used
  • For people who have dust allergies
  • For those who want to avoid more complex systems requiring installation of ducting
  • For people who want to have specific temperatures for individual rooms

Yes, it can. Installing a ductless heating and cooling system that covers the entire home can increase resale value for a number of reasons:


  • Savvy home buyers tend to be more interested in a home’s functionality (like heating and cooling) than cosmetic features.
  • Homes with built-in air conditioning such as a central air conditioning system typically sell for more than homes without it.
  • The superior energy efficiency and climate control capabilities of a ductless system compared to traditional systems is an incredibly valuable selling point for financially and environmentally conscious people.

If you are planning on selling your home, adding a ductless heating and cooling system is a great way to get the most out of your sale. Contact our HVAC experts so we can help you with that every step of the way!
