Can Mini-Split Heat Pumps Solve That One Cold Room in My House?

Mini-split heat pumps offer high efficiency and customizable comfort.

Upgrade your heating and cooling today.


When the weather turns cold on the North Shore of Massachusetts and the Seacoast of New Hampshire, homeowners turn to their heating systems to keep them warm. But that shouldn’t mean you have to huddle in the few select areas your central heating can keep comfortable while avoiding all the rooms in your home that stay frigid all winter.

That’s where mini-split heat pumps from Kearney HVAC can really make a difference. Our Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps, the best mini-split heat pumps for cold weather, offer high efficiency heating that can add on to your existing central heating and help keep your whole home warm.

Why Your Current Heating System Isn’t Heating Your Whole Home

If you have rooms in your home that stay cold in the winter even when the heat is on and other rooms are comfortable, a few things could be happening.

It’s possible your furnace or boiler isn’t properly sized for your home—undersized and oversized units will both struggle to distribute warm air through your entire ductwork system.

The ductwork itself could also be the issue. Complicated ductwork with too many turns will be difficult for any forced air system to push air through. Also, if you’ve recently built an addition to your home, or converted previously unfinished areas into finished rooms, they could be missing ductwork completely. 

How Can Cold Climate Heat Pumps Help?

Electric heat pumps, also called mini-splits, consist of two components—an outdoor condenser unit and an indoor air handler. The condenser unit extracts heat from the outdoor air and transfers it through refrigerated piping to the air handler, where it warms your home.

Heat pumps are incredibly efficient, and the ductless kind don’t need to be connected to a central ductwork system to operate. Ductless mini-splits are single-room heat pumps, making them an attractive option for homeowners only looking to target particular rooms.
