David Gray first became intrigued with ductless heat pump technology in 2010, when he was introduced to this type of system, and it was explained to him how much more energy efficient they are compared to others. David started researching ductless heat pumps on his own, and quickly found himself captivated by the technology and enrolled in courses at a local College. David already holding a college degree in physics, quickly completed every HVAC course available and earned his HVAC Technician Certificate. He continued his education of ductless heat pump technology with Mitsubishi Electric where he first earned his Specialist Certification, then his Master Certification, and soon after, his Expert Certification.
While completing all available Mitsubishi courses he could get his hands on, David started his new business venture, Island Ductless Heat Pumps. His decision to start his own company was immediately validated after his first handful of installations, with incredibly positive feedback from his first customers.
“I was pleasantly surprised to discover that not only did these systems meet their extraordinary claims on energy efficiency, but they exceeded them! Customers told me how their utility bills were reduced by a third or more—which are fantastic results. It was even more rewarding to hear customers rave about how much more comfortable their homes were after installing a ductless heat pump system. That is our real goal. Savings are great, but we want everyone to FEEL the Island Ductless Difference!”
Island Ductless Heat Pumps is focused solely on Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands for several reasons. The first being that David Gray and his family love Whidbey Island, and have a long and deep connection to the community here. David has lived on Whidbey for over 30+ years, watched his family grow up here, and says he cannot ever see himself leaving. David, and the entire Island Ductless Heat Pumps team boast that this community has given them so much, that they enjoy giving back to the community, making Whidbey and Fidalgo Island homes and businesses more comfortable while helping to save the planet one ductless heat pump at a time!

If you have been involved in the arts here on Whidbey, or every seen a performance put on by one of the local community theaters, you have probably seen Island Ductless Heat Pump’s logo on the pamphlets and brochures as a sponsor. “Whidbey Island is a special place, everyone who works for us has grown up, or lived on the island for years. People here know their neighbors and take care of each other, and that is something I always wanted to support with the company. It is very rewarding to provide great careers to our employees, as well as help our friends and neighbors discover their most comfortable home while saving significantly on their utility bill.”
