Ductless Heat Pumps

For customized comfort throughout your home.

With a zoned solution like a ductless heat pump, you can save energy and control temperatures independently in up to eight separate zones, all with a single outdoor unit.

What is a ductless heat pump?

Ductless heat pumps are exactly that – heat pumps that don’t need ductwork to operate but rather are wall-mounted, giving homeowners the ability to customize the airflow in their home. A ductless system can be especially cost-efficient if your home doesn’t have existing ductwork or needs new ductwork.

This system is split into two units: the inside, wall-mounted unit (also known as a “head”) and the outside condensing unit. Smart inverter technology means that ductless air conditioners can easily maintain desired room temperatures. This is especially beneficial for those looking to control the temperature of a specific room in their home, like the top floor or a home office.

What is a heat pump and how does it work?

A heat pump is an electrical device that extracts heat from one place and transfers it to another. The heat pump is not a new technology – it has been used in Canada and around the world for decades. Refrigerators and air conditioners are both common examples of this technology.

The heat pump cycle is fully reversible, and heat pumps can provide year-round climate control for your home – heating in winter and cooling and dehumidifying in summer.

Since the ground and air outside always contain some heat, a heat pump can supply heat to a house even on cold winter days.

Unlike forced air furnaces that require gas to heat the air, a heat pump only requires a little electricity to run. They are an ideal option for those wanting an environmentally friendly option, as a large portion of the energy used to heat or cool your home comes from the outside air, a free and infinitely renewable resource.

A ductless heat pump is an ideal solution for:

  • Renovations, remodelling and new construction
  • Sunrooms, basements, attics, garages, hot or cold rooms, and more
  • Rooms where floor space comes at a premium or is not available for other application
  • Ceiling void or attic does not allow for a viable duct run option
  • Cooling only models are an excellent value for space not requiring heating
  • Compact size and ease of installation make ductless systems the popular choice for new construction and renovation projects.
Whether you’re looking for a sleek wall-mounted design or a discreet floor unit that can be tucked away, A1 has got you covered with the most innovative and eco-friendly zoned heating and cooling solutions on the market.

Heat Pump FAQ

How much would I save on my energy bills if I switched to a heat pump?

Our Solutions Specialists can help you estimate savings that are more specific to your home and your current heating sources.

But according to studies done by the Environmental Protection Agency, air source heat pumps can reduce electricity usage for heating by up to 50% compared to electrical furnaces and baseboard heaters. Cold climate heat pumps are engineered for efficiency, but for optimal savings, systems need to be correctly designed and installed. Factors like the age and type of your home construction & cold weather performance of the heat pump can impact the system’s efficiency.

Are heat pumps expensive?

Heat pumps definitely have higher upfront installation costs. If you are using your heat pump to only heat your home (no cooling), then a heat pump costs more to install than a gas furnace. However, if you need to cool AND heat your home, a heat pump can cost about the same to install a new gas furnace with an AC. With a heat pump, you will experience better performance & increased energy efficiency over time.

Are heat pumps noisy?

No, they are not noisy – heat pumps are virtually silent. Heat pump technology has evolved over time and new heat pumps are now much more efficient and much quieter. Look for a unit that is 60 decibels or less.

Are heat pumps safer than a furnace?

Heat pumps don’t use flammable gases to heat your home, so there is no risk of gas by-products like carbon monoxide which can be harmful if proper safety precautions are not followed.

Why is it called a heat pump if it can cool the air as well?

Yes, the name can be misleading but heat pumps are designed for both cooling and heating.

  • They’re called heat pumps because they essentially
    • move heat into the home to warm it up
    • move heat out of the house to cool it down.
  • A heat pump isn’t a device that generates heat; it just relocates it to provide reliable, efficient heating and cooling in your living space.
  • Air-source heat pumps transfer heat to and from the air, rather than geothermal heat pumps, which transfer heat to and from the ground.

*Your air conditioner’s energy efficiency, rated in Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ration (SEER) measures how efficiently the unit cools your home. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficiently your unit will perform, resulting in lower electricity bills. Potential energy savings may vary depending on your personal lifestyle, system settings and usage, equipment maintenance, local climate, actual construction and installation.
