Our Sun Glow Heating & Cooling team is working more and more with ductless systems, also known as ductless heat pumps or mini splits. You may not be familiar with their name, but more than likely you have seen or even used one. These compact heating and cooling systems offer flexibility and efficiency beyond what more traditional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can.
Why Are They Called Ductless?
Why are these small but powerful systems considered ductless? They are called ductless systems due to their lack of utilizing a ductwork or air ducts system to circulate the conditioned air throughout your home.
This is in contrast to a more traditional forced-air heating and cooling system, such as a furnace and air conditioner. These systems are much larger than a ductless system, often having a pretty hefty footprint in your basement or attic. And these systems disperse their heated and cooled air via the air ducts.
Since ductless systems are not reliant upon air ducts to distribute the air, this offers a tremendous amount of flexibility. A ductless system is small enough to install almost anywhere in your house, typically on a wall or ceiling. They only have a few components to them:
- An outdoor unit—the condenser
- The indoor unit—the air handler
- The small conduit connecting the outdoor and indoor units—comprised of the condensate drain, suction tubing, refrigerant tubing, and power cable
Our professionals are able to connect several indoor units to one outdoor unit for a zone control system setup, providing you with the ultimate comfort solution.
Ductless System Replacement and Installation
Installing a ductless system is a much shorter process than a more traditional heating and cooling system, largely due to the lack of ductwork. Whether you are looking to add a high-efficiency ductless system to a new addition or your garage, or you are looking to replace an older ductless system, call our North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certified team. Let us make it a stress-free event for you.

Ductless System Repair
Ductless systems are so technologically advanced and energy-efficient, they rarely experience a need for repairs. That said, in the event, your system stops running properly or begins making unusual noises, our experts can quickly come out to identify and fix the problem.
Having one of our skilled professionals perform the repair is ideal because it helps maintain the HVAC system longer. And this definitely adds to your system’s life.
Ductless System Maintenance
Regular professional preventative maintenance on a ductless system is critical to keep your system working well and for years to come. We highly recommend having one of our knowledgeable and experienced professionals come out to clean and check it annually. In addition to cleaning your unit, we can also alert you if we see anything that might develop into an issue in the future. This keeps you from costly and unexpected repairs.
This type of maintenance also keeps your system working at its peak energy efficiency, which saves you on energy costs. Speak to our professional during our maintenance visit to see what regular maintenance you can perform yourself between visits.
