West Chester Ductless Heat Pump Installation
Providing Dependable ductless heat pump installations in Downington, Chester Springs, & the Surrounding Areas
Over the past 15 years or so, the HVAC industry has witnessed plenty of changes in how you can heat and cool your home and all for the better. One such innovation is the ductless heat pump system from the indoor comfort specialists at DiBiase Heating and Cooling Company.
Ductless air systems consist of:
- One or more outside condensing units, each of which can support up to 5 indoor wall blower units.
- The wall blowers take the place of a central air system heat exchanger and deliver cool or warm air once you turn the system on.
- You can purchase a ductless system with an AC function only, or AC and heating combined.
- They’re as quiet as a church mouse and feature remote control operation.
- There’s no ductwork to worry about, so ongoing maintenance is that much simpler.
- We can design and install a whole-house ductless air system, or one for just a certain room or area in your house, like a new addition or converted attic.
- Best of all, ductless systems are super energy efficient, which means lower heating and cooling operating costs.
At DiBiase Heating and Cooling System, we install, maintain, and repair ductless air systems and always provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Heat pumps are the most energy efficient way to heat and cool your home. Geothermal (or ground source) heat pumps even include an optional water heating function. Heat pumps rely on the relatively constant temperatures beneath the ground.

A ductless heat pump is a zoned heating and cooling system that consists of one outdoor unit and a number of indoor evaporative units with refrigerant lines, not ductwork, connecting them. The outdoor unit is a condenser that works to transfer heat from either inside the home in the cooler months or from outside the home in the warmer months. The refrigerant lines transfer this heat or cool to individual rooms or areas and release it into the air.
During the winter months, your heat pump will absorb heat stored in the ground and carry it via water inside the underground pipes to heat your home. Just how energy efficient is a heat pump? Well, even the best gas furnaces are 98% energy efficient, while a heat pump can deliver energy efficiencies of 400% – 600%.
Ductless heat pumps are considered to be more efficient than standard heat pumps that employ traditional ductwork. It is estimated that up to 30% of energy loss to an HVAC can be attributed to leaky or uninsulated ducts. In addition, clogged ducts or filters can also impact the efficiency of the unit negatively. Ductless heat pumps also allow for targeted heating or cooling, which lets a homeowner heat or cool a specific area of the home instead of having to heat or cool the entire home in order to impact the area.
How Long Do Heat Pumps Last?
A heat pump's lifespan is typically dependent on three main factors. Those three factors are: how often it is used, the climate of the part of the country it's located in, and the amount of maintenance it receives. When a heat pump is properly installed and well maintained, it can last, on average, 10-15 years. There is a possibility a heat pump can last upwards of 20 years before needing a replacement, but once a heat pump hits a certain age it begins to diminish in efficiency.
Can a Ductless Heat Pump Warm a Whole House?
Yes, a ductless heat pump can heat a whole house. The outdoor condenser can be connected to up to 9 indoor evaporative units spread out across the home’s floor plan, covering individual rooms or areas. For very large homes, two condenser units might be necessary depending on the size and design of the home, just as two HVACs would probably be necessary in the same situation.
