Q: So mini-splits are also heat pumps but work with systems w/o ductwork? Is there any other way they differ?

A: Correct. Academic studies have found that ducted heat pumps are about 20% more efficient that ductless installations. Personally, I prefer the air circulation from a ducted system and I prefer the look of traditional floor registers to having units on the walls or floors.
