Plano, TX Ductless HVAC Systems & Service
Also referred to as ductless mini splits, ductless heating and cooling systems are similar to heat pumps, in that they consist of indoor and outdoor cabinets that circulate refrigerant in order to move heat from one area to another. While in cooling mode, the indoor unit absorbs heat and while in heating mode, the same unit releases heat.
Ductless systems are different from standard heat pumps in that instead of using a single indoor unit connected to a series of ducts, a ductless mini split utilizes multiple indoor air handers throughout the home. These air handlers are small in size, and are mounted on the walls of each room. Each one connects to the outside unit through refrigerant and power lines running through the back of the wall. These air handlers send air directly through your living spaces without requiring ductwork.

What Are the Benefits of a Ductless Mini Split?
- Saves Space: Ductless mini splits are a great choice for new homes or homes that are being remodeled. These HVAC systems take space–eating ducts out of the equation, meaning you have more space and more design flexibility.
- Energy Efficient: Ductless mini splits are equipped with smaller mechanical components than standard systems. Therefore, they use less power, which makes them an energy efficient choice. In addition, because they lack ducts, air does not lose or gain heat on the way to a room.
- Zone Control: In a ductless system, each air handler can be run independently of the others. You’ll be able to only heat or cool the rooms that require conditioning, which is incredibly convenient, and also energy efficient.
- Better Air Quality: Despite using air filters, allergens, and other contaminants can still find their way into you home with a ducted system. Without ducts, the air provided to your home is much cleaner, making this a beneficial choice if there are occupants with allergies or asthma in your home.
