A duct-free system, also known as a “ mini split, is made up of or includes two components: an indoor unit to deliver conditioned air to the room, and an outdoor unit located outside of the house. Compact refrigerant lines run between the two units, eliminating the need for bulky ductwork. Duct-free systems are ideal for older homes that have no ductwork, room additions, or areas in homes that just never seem to be the right temperature or are never comfortable.
Whether you’re creating a quiet, comfort controlled room, or simply want to heat or cool an area without expensive ductwork, duct-free systems set a new standard for efficiency, great looks and comfort.
Duct-free systems are much simpler and economical to install because they only have three basic parts: an outdoor condensing unit, an indoor unit, and the components that connect the two.
Duct-free systems are ideal for home or office additions, to replace unsightly window units, and for renovations or retro-fits where it’s important to preserve the building’s original appearance.
