Ductless and Mini-Split Ductless
For decades, split-zoning air-conditioning and heat pump systems have been the quiet solution for cooling and heating problems around the world. These powerful systems have three main components: an indoor unit, outdoor unit, and wireless controller.
A ductless, mini-split system is an option for cooling:
- Homes without ductwork or with poor ductwork. Frequently these are older buildings constructed before air conditioning existed.
- Homes with boilers or other methods of hot water heat
- Room additions, such as an added upper level or three-season porch.
- High level of customization.
- Ideal for “zoning” rooms in your home or for cooling individual rooms, each of which can have its own thermostat.
- Reduce energy loss sometimes associated with duct work.
- A heat pump can sometimes be incorporated to provide both heating and cooling.
- Anti-allergen filter prevents the cross-flow of air with contaminants.
- Whisper-quiet operation.
- Indoor air handlers can be suspended from a ceiling, mounted flush into a drop ceiling, or hung on a wall. This is also a good option for room additions where duct work is not feasible.
- These systems don’t require ductwork, so they can be installed in a wide variety of settings, including homes with plaster walls and brick facades.
- These powerful systems have three main components: an indoor unit, outdoor unit, and wireless controller. The compressor and evaporator components are housed in separate units.
