Ductless Heating & Cooling Systems offer a great way to upgrade your home.
A ductless heat pump is a highly efficient, and easily installed, primary heating and cooling system for homes and businesses. These systems are safe, quiet and heat rooms evenly at a fraction of the cost of baseboard or wall heaters. They don't require duct work, which eliminates maintenance or worry about duct leakage. Upgrade your electric heat with a ductless heat pump.
Adding a ductless heat pump increases the flexibility of your heating system. Working with the existing heating system, just one ductless system is enough to heat and cool the average Pacific Northwest home or small business. Keeping an existing heating system in place (optional) ensures bedrooms, bathrooms, and offices remain at desired temperatures, even on the coldest days.
If a single-family electrically heated site-built home has an electric forced air furnace; or baseboards, wall heaters or other zonal resistance heating as its primary heat source; or if a manufactured home has an electric forced air furnace or other zonal resistance heating as its primary heat source; it may qualify for PUD 3’s ductless heat pump incentive. PUD 3 has a project progress checklist available for customer use.
