FAQ's

What is a Ductless Heat Pump?

Ductless heat pumps are units that transfer heating or cooling, as opposed to creating heating or cooling. Nowadays, ductless heat pumps are used to both heat and cool homes. Mitsubishi Ductless units installed by Northeast Ductless can operate effectively down to -13 degrees!

Do you offer financing for your ductless installations?

Yes. We currently offer ductless installation financing as we are a Mitsubishi Diamond Contractor. Ductless Financing is offered via Synchrony Financial.

How much does a ductless ac system cost?

It is always very difficult to give a general estimate. There are many variables to determine before we can price a system that will  suit your needs. The costs associated with ductless systems are typically less expensive than traditional heating and cooling systems, and they are much more efficient. Why not contact us to setup an appointment for an estimate.

Do ductless cooling and heating systems come with a warranty?

Yes. Northeast Ductless is a Mitsubishi Diamond Contractor. This extends Mitsubishi's five year warranty to a seven year warranty! So you get a full seven year warranty and also a two year warranty on our services!

What is a Mitsubishi Diamond Contractor?

What is a mini split ac system?

A Ductless Mini Split AC system is similar to traditional systems configurations, though they operate very differently. The "split" comes from these systems having two parts.

There is the outdoor condenser or heat pump, and the indoor air handler.

What does VRF mean?

VRF stands for Variable Refrigerant Flow. VRF is ideal for residential multi-tenant applications because its condensing units can serve multiple apartments, while allowing each room to be controlled separately.

Will going ductless save me money?

Mitsubishi Ductless systems are much more efficient than traditional oil, gas and propane! You could save 40% compared to heating with oil, 35% compared to heating with propane or 30% compared to heating with natural gas.

What does SEER stand for?

S.E.E.R. is an efficiency rating. It stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. it is a form of measuring cooling efficiency, while taking into account the different seasons and their effect on cooling. For a more in-depth explanation, please visit this great article at the following link:

What is Duct Loss?

What is Duct Loss?

Duct Loss is an expression used to describe the amount of heating or cooling lost while hot air or cool air is traveling from it's source to it's destination. Traditional HVAC systems create heated and cooled air and then push it through ductwork inside your attic or between floor joists. The ductwork that the air conditioning flows through can have holes, bad seams or even be uninsulated which causes the area it's in to affect the temperature of the air traveling through it. This loss can account for 30% of the systems heating or cooling being lost. This inefficiency does not occur with ductless systems!

What are Ductless Heat Pumps?

Even cold air contains some heat, and with Mitsubishi Electric's renewable heat pump technology, this heat can be captured and transferred into a home by means of a circulating refrigerant that is alternately expanded and compressed. To keep this process going when the temperature falls below freezing, Mitsubishi Electric developed an original refrigerant circulation system called a Flash Injection Circuit. This circuit ensures a larger volume refrigerant is flowing, even in sub-zero temperatures, making heat pumps an viable option in some of the world's cold regions.
