Ductless Heat Pump Installation & Repair in Boston, MA

An average home may lose 25% of its heat to ductwork. Ductless heat pumps (also called mini-split systems) can be the perfect solution for Massachusetts homeowners looking for something outside of conventional HVAC.

A ductless heat pump works by moving air around rather than burning fuel, doubling as both air conditioner and heater! This is great for both the planet and your wallet.

Maybe your home doesn’t have ductwork already, you’re adding on a new room, remodeling, or otherwise looking to upgrade to more efficient heating and cooling. These modern systems are highly efficient, leading to energy savings in the long run, and you won’t have to worry about installing expensive ductwork. Plus, you can set temperatures for different areas in your home! The zoning feature ensures extra comfort for everyone.

Boston Standard Company has licensed, experienced HVAC technicians ready to talk to you about your ductless heat pump installation options, or ductless heat pump repair. When it comes to seamless installations, we’re The Company You Count On!

Who Should Go Ductless? Considering Your Heat Pump Options

There are a few situations where ductless heat pumps may not be the best fit: If you don’t want the upfront costs or you don’t like the aesthetics. While installing ductless heat pumps may cost more initially, the energy savings in the long run will be noticeable.

Regular maintenance is easy and important, so cleaning the filters every month will keep your system in optimal shape and prevent costly repairs. Some people don’t like the look of boxy white wall mounts in every room, but don’t worry—there are ways to blend ductless seamlessly in with your décor. You could mount the unit on the ceiling or even conceal it within the façade of a picture frame.

LG even makes a ductless cooling and heating system that pays special attention to aesthetics. It is worth noting that our technicians are factory-trained to install LG, Mitsubishi, and Fujitsu brand heat pumps. If you hire us to install these brands, we can offer you a special no-cost warranty extension for up to 12 years.

That being said, there are plenty of benefits to installing ductless heat pumps:

Ductless Heating Systems Need Regular Maintenance, Too

Of course indoor air quality is important, but it could be easy to overlook. With ductless heat pumps, it’s important to maintain the high quality of indoor air circulation by cleaning out the indoor air filters every month, or more if you smoke or have pets. If dust and debris build up in the ductless heat pump filters, this could cause compromised air quality for your household and possibly more extensive issues that would need professional repair. Outside of monthly filter cleanings, you should schedule an annual heating tune-up to make sure your equipment continues to operate at optimal efficiency. Preventative maintenance also extends the lifespan of your investment.
