MULTIPLE CLIMATE ZONE CONTROLS
A ductless mini split system allows you to create and control multiple climate zones in your home. Many models can pair up to four indoor units to one outdoor compressor, with each one being controllable for optimal comfort via individual thermostats.
Because ductless air conditioners operate without bulky ductwork, they are less susceptible to leaks that account for up to 30% of energy consumption in traditional systems. This makes mini split systems up to 40% more efficient than conventional HVAC.
EASE OF INSTALLATION
For many homes with space constraints or plaster walls that don’t allow them to fit larger ductwork used in traditional systems or window units, ductless mini split installation is a flexible, minimally-invasive alternative. The small, simple connections from outdoor to indoor units mean homeowners have choices when it comes to the interior design of their system. Before making any decisions, make sure to read our Ducted vs. Ductless Heat Pumps Blog.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Traditional heating and cooling systems force air through your home via ductwork. The electric ductless system delivers air directly to different zones in your home without using a duct system, requiring minimal installation.
The electric ductless system is comprised of a small outdoor unit, and one or more indoor units that can be mounted anywhere that has access to electricity.
A ductless system allows you to control each zone in your home independently and turn off zones that are not in use. It is a flexible and cost-effective solution to replace electric baseboard heaters and inefficient window units.
HOW LONG DO DUCTLESS MINI SPLIT SYSTEMS TYPICALLY LAST?

WHERE CAN A DUCTLESS MINI SPLIT SYSTEM BE INSTALLED?
Mini splits can more or less be installed any place in the home that has a solid wall the width of the unit – roughly 3 feet – and can provide the unit access to a power source and the outdoor equipment.
