Ductless heat pump installation in Oregon



A ductless heat pump is the most efficient heating and cooling system on the market. By going ductless, you'll save up to 40% on your energy bills compared to a traditional system.



We install Mitsubishi ductless heat pumps. In Bend, clients typically install ductless heat pumps to improve the efficiency of their electrically heated homes. In Portland, clients go ductless to make living spaces - usually upstairs bedrooms - more comfortable.

Mitsubishi Ductless Heat Pumps



The team at GreenSavers recommends Mitsubishi as the best manufacturer of ductless heat pumps. High performance and reliability at a fair price - That's something we can get behind.


Wall Mount


This design type is best for: (1) high efficiency cooling and heating; (2) advanced triple-action air filtration, and (3) high performance Hyper-Heating down to -13° F outdoor ambient. Click here for the operation manual.

Horizontal Ducted


Horizontal-ducted units can be hidden either above the ceiling or below the floor. This design type is best used for: (1) master bedrooms, (2) bathrooms, (3) additions, or (4) rooms with soffit or crawl space available. Here is the operation manual.

Ceiling Recessed


With wider air distribution and a less obtrusive style, these indoor units blend well with ceilings. This design type is best for: (1) bedrooms, (2) offices, (3) basements, (4) sunrooms, or (5) new additions. View the operation manual here.

Benefits of ductless heat pumps


All around, ductless systems are hard to beat. They're incredibly efficient, so you're saving money while reducing your impact. And you're more comfortable because of targeted heating and cooling. Read more:




In Bend, we often find electrically heated homes with a kitchen and living room at one end and bedrooms at the other.
By positioning a single-head ductless heat pump near the living room and kitchen, we're able to meet about 80% of the home's heating and cooling load. The boost in efficiency makes this a common sense solution in Bend.

According to the US EPA and DOE, 20-30% of heating and air conditioning efficiency is lost through ductwork. A 20-30% loss translates directly into higher energy bills. Take a look at the relative efficiency and cost of different heating sources in the Pacific Northwest: Efficiency of Heating Sources in the Northwest and Cost of Heating Sources in the Northwest.



Portland homes often have a converted upper floor that never seems to cool down in the summer or heat up as well as the first floor in the winter
. We've found that a ductless heat pump is by far the best way to efficiently heat and cool these upstairs living spaces.

Ductless systems are “zonal”, which means that they deliver targeted cooling and heating to each room or zone. The indoor unit contains a temperature sensor, quiet oscillating fan to distribute air flow, and a variable speed compressor to continuously match the heating and cooling load. As a result, the system eliminates uncomfortable temperature variations associated with conventional electric and central heating systems.




Ductless systems provide multi-stage air filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the air.

How does a ductless heat pump work?



A ductless system uses heat pump technology to distribute warm or cool air more quietly and efficiently than traditional systems. Mitsubishi made a pair of videos to introduce single-zone and multi-zone ductless heat pumps:




A single-zone ductless system allows you to control the temperature of one room by connecting an outdoor unit to an indoor unit, with no ductwork needed. An outdoor heat pump unit is placed outside your home and is connected to an indoor unit by small cables and a refrigerant line through a hole in the wall. Learn more about Mistubishi single-zone ductless heat pumps.



A multi-zone ductless heat pump connects an outdoor unit to an one or more indoor units, letting you control the temperature in several different zones of your home. Each room or zone can be controlled independently, so for example, you can set different temperatures for your kitchen and bedroom. Get the scoop on Mistubishi multi-zone ductless heat pumps.



In general, ductless heat pumps have 3 parts: (1) a remote control, (2) an outdoor unit, and (3) an indoor unit. Multi-zone systems have more than one indoor unit. 


Control with app


With Mitsubishi's kumo cloud app, you can heat or cool each zone in your home, no matter where you are.

Outdoor Unit


The outdoor compressor unit connects to one or more indoor units with refrigerant lines. Using a refrigerant vapor compression cycle - like a common household refrigerator - ductless heat pumps collect heat from outside the house and deliver it inside on the heating cycle, and vice versa on the cooling cycle.

Indoor Unit


An indoor unit, like this Mitsubishi Wall-Mount Deluxe, not only provides efficient heating and cooling to your room, but it also monitors room conditions and adjusts its fan speed to maintain the desired temperature.
