How a Ductless Mini-Split Unit Works
Like conventional HVAC systems, the ductless heat/ac system locates the compressor and condenser outside the house. But ductless systems eliminate the need for a basement- or attic-located evaporator unit and bulky ductwork by using thin copper tubing that pumps refrigerant directly to discreet wall mounted blowers inside your home. Even more remarkable, this same unit works in reverse in winter, absorbing heat from the outside air and moving it indoors to heat your home. The result? Efficient cooling and heating for year-round, whole-house comfort in most climates.
Available in numerous mix-and-match capacities and configurations, there's a Ductless mini-split system for even the most difficult to heat and cool areas.
Conventional air duct systems tend to be bulky and can require special structural attention while Halcyon system piping can often be routed through walls and joists to maintain aesthetics.
Flexible, Remote Control Cooling Because each room has its own handler, you can create up to four zones with a timer and optional wired remote that puts you in temperature control and allows you to meet the varying comfort needs of different spaces.
Ductless air conditioners are comprised of an indoor and outdoor unit, which allows for a peaceful inside environment by enabling the contractor to install components like compressors and motors outdoors.
Copper tubing running through a small 3 to 4-inch opening in the wall or ceiling easily connects the indoor and outdoor units. Refrigerant is cycled through the lines from the outdoor condensing unit to the indoor unit, where the air is quietly distributed to the interior space.
Because there are no ducts, ductless systems lose less than 5% cooling vs. up to 40% for traditional forced-air systems. Increased efficiencies up to 26-SEER mean lower utility bills. Several models are even Energy Star Qualified, meaning they save you on your utility bill.
Why pay to heat or cool areas that no one is occupying? Individual zoning allows you to heat or cool the areas you want, and not the areas that are unoccupied.
Ductless systems use R410A refrigerant designed to prevent the depletion of the ozone layer.
Safe and Secure
Using window a/c makes it very easy for intruders to enter your home. Ductless units mount high on a wall, away from the window, providing you with improved security and a pleasant view.
