Heat Pumps   |   APPLY NOW   |   SPECIFICATIONS

A ductless heating and cooling system is a highly efficient zonal heating and cooling system that does not require the use of air ducts.  Ductless systems consist of an outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor air-handling units, called “heads”, linked by a dedicated refrigerant line. Indoor heads are typically mounted high on a wall or ceiling covering a 3-inch hole where the refrigerant line passes through from the outside unit, which is mounted at the base of the house. Each indoor head corresponds with a heating and cooling zone that can be controlled independently.

 NOTE: Generally bids from installers do not include the electrical costs.
