Are you in the market for an energy-saving and flexible HVAC system upgrade? Ductless mini-split systems could be what you're looking for. Our knowledgeable technicians and installers are ready to help you in picking the most suitable mini-split system for your home. And when it's time to proceed with installation, we promise a professional and efficient fit.

Unlike traditional furnaces that need ductwork, mini-split systems operate on a similar principle to heat pumps. This design involves a straightforward linkage between the indoor and outdoor parts of your system. Choosing a well-installed mini-split system can bring multiple benefits to homeowners, including:

  • Flexible installation options: A particularly helpful component of a mini-split’s design is how many options you have for simple installation needs for a number of different areas. Whether you prefer wall-mounted units, ceiling cassettes or a more streamlined approach, mini-splits offer the flexibility you need.
  • Affordable system costs: Traditional HVAC systems can be costly to set up and maintain, especially when dealing with ductwork installation. Mini-splits on the other hand, can be installed discreetly where they’re most effective. For many installation projects, this means reduced expenses for installation labor.
  • Strong energy efficiency: Mini-splits are designed to deliver precise, targeted heating or cooling. Controlling each zone independently means energy is only used where it’s needed. This means you can avoid wasting energy on rooms you aren’t actively using, unlike the conventional, closed network of air ducts.

Single-Zone Mini-Splits vs. Models Compatible with Multi-Zone Designs

When making your decision, keep in mind that single-zone mini-splits are suited for specific areas, whereas multi-zone systems enable independent climate control across multiple spaces of your home.

Determining the Best Locations for Mini-Split Installation: Different Types and Their Advantages

The installation site of your mini-split system is vital for the best possible results. Below are several ways you can install mini-splits along with their advantages:

  • Wall Mounted: These units are very easy to install and are a cost-effective option. Wall-mounted mini-splits efficiently distribute your desired temperatures for both heating and cooling.
  • Floor Mounted: An effective option for homes where installation on the wall or ceiling won’t work.
  • Ceiling Cassette: Mini-splits designed for the ceiling are ideal for wide coverage. They're typically designed to blend discreetly with your ceiling's appearance.
  • Concealed Duct: Designed to be out of view, concealed duct mini-splits are perhaps the most indiscreet option. They are the perfect fit for homes with multiple spaces or lots of square footage, providing a sleek aesthetic with effective performance.

Consider the system’s size, layout and other specific HVAC needs of your home before you go all in on mini-split systems. An experienced installer has the knowledge of different brand features to help you choose that much faster.
