    If you have a smaller home, apartment or sort of an open-concept home, a single-zone ductless heat pump would work perfectly for you. A single-zone heat pump basically has one indoor unit connected to one outdoor unit. It provides cooling much more efficiently than an AC utilizing a complex ductwork would. Multi-zone cooling is better for a larger building or for individual rooms in your home. This is perfect if you have a room in your home that does not get proper cooling or where your AC ductworks don’t reach. Multi-zone cooling refers to a heat pump system that has several indoor units hooked up to a single outdoor unit.

    Ductless heat pumps are a comparatively cheaper option to adding ducts to an existing home. If you want to efficiently cool your home, consider a single or multi-zone ductless option for your home.

    4. Downsizing? Go Ductless!

    Many people don’t see the point in cooling rooms that are never used. Often, people will make the mistake of covering the vents in these homes.
