    mini-Split heap pump in DC area--dos it work in winter?

    I am considering installing a tri-zone Mitsubishi mini-split ductless system in a townhouse in Washington DC. I'd like to know 1) if the mini-split heat pump is adequate in this climate, and 2) is it a lot more expensive than gas furnace? 3) is this a much cheaper solution since no duct work is required? Thanks for any advice.

    Dunno.
    A local contractor should be able to explain the pros and cons, tell you the possibility of a heat pump and give you data between the cost of one versus another.

    It will work just fine in the DC area, you might need some sort of back-up source of heat when the temps drop into the single digits. That doesn't happen very often here.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.
