WHAT IS A DUCTLESS HVAC SYSTEM?

A ductless HVAC system or mini split is a heating and cooling system designed to deliver warm or cool air to a single room or several without the need for connective ductwork. Mini split systems are a great option for room additions, sunrooms, garages or areas of the home that need to be warmer or cooler.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MINI SPLIT AND A DUCTLESS HVAC SYSTEM?
Nothing. A mini split and a ductless HVAC system are the same thing. Both are terms that describe heating and cooling solutions that don’t require ductwork. A mini-split may refer to a ductless air conditioner or ductless heat pump.
TYPES OF MINI-SPLIT SYSTEMS
Ductless systems are configured in several ways. There are ductless air conditioners, ductless heat pumps that can both cool and heat a room , as well as ductless zoning systems that allow you to tie several rooms together.
DUCTLESS HVAC SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
A ductless mini split system requires basically the same care and maintenance as a traditional split system central heating and cooling system. For maintenance advice and troubleshooting tips, check out our ductless systems maintenance guide.
