Blue Ox Heating and Air, based in New Hope, Minnesota, has announced that they are offering ductless heat pumps in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota. They point out that ductless heat pumps are growing in popularity in the Twin Cities and that despite the colder temperature, ductless heating systems have been found to be a good solution with many manufacturers providing extended temperature systems.
Tom Gehle, General Manager at Blue Ox Heating & Air, explains, “Ductless systems, also called ductless mini-splits, work similarly to heat pumps - that is, a single system is capable of both heating and cooling using electricity and refrigerant. The unit moves heat rather than converting it from a fuel source, allowing for incredible efficiency ratings.”
Ductless systems have three main parts: an outdoor condensing unit; an indoor wall-mounted air handler; and a conduit that connects the outdoor unit to the indoor air handler through a small hole in the wall. Up to five indoor units can be connected to a single outdoor unit to allow zoned heating and cooling. When compared to standard systems, like a furnace or AC, there is actually no comparison. Ductless heat systems have the highest seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) ratings in cooling, the most efficient electric heat source available, and there is no energy loss resulting from leaky air ducts.
Meanwhile, Blue Ox has a team of experienced professionals for ductless heating. They are capable of properly diagnosing a living environment, ensuring appropriate product selection. It is important not to choose an oversized or an undersized equipment. Thus, the most important step is to correctly assess the needs of a particular home and recommend the right kind and size of ductless heating system.

There are various situations where a ductless heating system may be recommended. These include older houses that don’t have ductwork and it could destroy the aesthetics of the home if air ducts are installed; homeowners who want to save money compared to the use of electric baseboard heating; homeowners who are constructing an add-on or sunroom but want to avoid the costs of installing ductwork in those areas; homeowners who are converting an attic or a garage into a living area or a workshop and want an efficient way to heat or cool that particular space; homeowners who are adding zoned heating or cooling to a room that is difficult to keep comfortable, such as a computer room; and homeowners who want to avoid the energy loss in leaky air ducts.
