Sometimes installing ductwork isn’t practical or cost-effective. In some circumstances, it might not be an option at all. In situations where conventional ducted systems are impractical, ductless heating and air conditioning is an attractive alternative to keeping your home or workplace comfortable.
Why Choose A Ductless Mini-Split?
Ductless heating and cooling systems, often called mini-splits, have an outdoor compressor and an indoor air handler unit. A conduit holding electrical wires, refrigerant tubing and a condensate drain pipe connects the two units. Each compressor can sustain up to four indoor units. You can place the compressor in a backyard or other inconspicuous location and still provide cooling comfort to rooms in the front of the house. Because of their flexibility, ductless mini-splits offer a smart alternative in many applications:
- Remodels and retrofits
- Room additions
- Supplement to ducted systems
- Data storage areas
- Computer rooms
