What is a Mini Split?

Named for their split design, a ductless mini split system is a comfort solution used for countless HVAC installations the world over.

Consisting of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, mini splits can be utilized as a standalone system, supplemental system, or for dedicated rooms. Their ductless design provides flexible and compact installations making them ideal for almost any application.

Some installations include bringing a mini-split into unconditioned spaces such as garages or additions and they can also be in used rooms that are under-served. Mini Splits are perfect even for historical homes without ductwork as a complete heating and cooling solution.
