Have you seen a ductless HVAC system before? Chances are that you probably have, even if you can’t pinpoint when it was. If you’ve noticed a unit up on the wall of a room that resembles a sleeker version of a window air conditioning unit that doesn’t go through the back of the wall too, then you’re looking at the air handler of a ductless system.
Also referred to as a ductless mini-split heat pump, ductless systems work through these wall-mounted air handlers, each of which is connected to a single outdoor unit. An outdoor unit can be connected to up to 4 indoor air handlers, which all work independently of one another with their own thermostats.
Ductless systems have become increasingly popular in the U.S. in the last decade or so, and for good reason. Read on as we uncover the various benefits of such a system.
