How it works
A ductless heat pump cools your home in the summer and heats it in the winter. It has an interior wall unit and a compressor that sits outside your home. These two units work together to transfer heat into your home to heat it, or out of your home to cool it.
Greater comfort and savings
Heat pumps move heat rather than generating it so they can deliver equivalent space cooling or heating for significantly less than the cost of operating conventional cooling or heating systems. In addition to efficient heating and cooling, heat pumps circulate air through a filtration system, reducing dust and allergens in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions
It sounds like magic, but yes, our air-source heating and cooling systems (fancy for heat pumps) will heat and cool your house. It finds heat in the outside air to transfer the warmth into your home and in reverse, it removes that hot air from your home and replaces it with cool relief in the summertime.
Really cold. Our current units will still find heat in air that is well below zero - but that might not be the most efficient way to heat your home when it gets that cold. Generally we find that switching back to your furnace when it gets close to 5-10°F is the best idea, but we will work that all out with you before the deep freeze comes.
Depends what color you are talking about! If you really want to, let's talk about it, we want you to love your heat pump as much as we do so maybe we can work on design ideas with you.
Installation is easy as pie. GMP arranges it for you. We have qualified local contractors specializing in heat pump installations. Since there's no duct work it takes less than a day and your comfort and savings begin immediately!
Heat pumps use electricity to transfer heat between outdoor and indoor air by compressing and expanding a refrigerant. Using a refrigerant vapor compression cycle, like a common household refrigerator, ductless heat pumps collect heat from outside the house and deliver it inside the heating cycle, and vice versa on the cooling cycle. Using electricity to move heat is significantly more efficient than using electricity to generate it.
Heat pumps need 200 amp service and space in your breaker box to plug in, they work particularly well in homes with open floor plans so the heated or cooled air can move around freely. It's also helpful if your home has been weatherized to keep that air inside.
