One of the most-popular HVAC systems installed today is the ductless system. Also known as “mini-split systems,” these are wall-mounted, energy-efficient units capable of both cooling your home in the summer and heating it in the winter. Also, as the name implies, these systems don’t require existing ductwork, which makes them a great fit for any space, but especially home additions, garages, separate suites, and more.

Save space, save money
If your home doesn’t have existing ductwork, getting it installed can be both invasive and prohibitively expensive. This is where ductless is a great option: not only are these systems able to provide your home cooling and heating without ductwork, but they’re also more efficient at doing so. That’s because traditional HVAC systems waste a great deal of energy just transporting heated or cooled air through air ducts to the living spaces of your home. Ductless indoor units are right in that living spaces, which means lower energy bills for you.
Most Carrier and Trane ductless systems are wall-mounted near the ceiling, which means no space is lost in your home. Multiple indoor units can be linked to just one outdoor unit—this is where the concept of “mini-split” comes from.
Ductless systems are versatile. Just like a heat pump, they can cool your home down in the summer and then heat it in the winter. This eliminates the need for a separate heating system in your home.
Zoned heating and cooling
Mini-split systems with multiple indoor units in different rooms can cool and heat each of those rooms independently. As a result, this means you can control each of your rooms independently from other rooms or the rest of the home. Spending time with the family in the kitchen? You can turn on the cooling in that room without needing to cool down the rest of the house. As you might have already guessed, this can lead to some amazing savings without sacrificing your indoor comfort.
