Coachella Valley Ductless Mini Splits
For homes with no ductwork (using window air conditioners or no air conditioning), ductless splits (also known as mini-splits) offer a quiet, efficient & safe alternative. The ductless split system is small in size and very flexible for zoning because no ductwork is needed. Ductless air conditioning or a ductless heat pump provides the perfect solution for sunrooms and room additions.

How a Mini-Split (Ductless) Works
A Ductless air conditioning system has 2 major components. A wall-mounted unit and a unit mounted outside the home.
Multiple inside units work independently and can be connected to one outside unit. For example, one unit can be installed in your living room, one in the kitchen, one in the master bedroom, and one in your kid’s bedroom.
A Remote-Control Thermostat controls each unit for the desired temperature in each room.
Available in numerous mix-and-match capacities and configurations, there’s a mini-split system for even the most difficult to heat and cool areas.
- Energy Efficient: 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 27.2-SEER mean lower utility bills. Several models are even Energy Star Qualified, meaning they save you on your utility bill.
- Individual Zoning: 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.
- Quiet Operation: Ductless air conditioners are comprised of an indoor and outdoor unit, which allows for a peaceful inside environment by enabling the contractor to install louder components like compressors and motors outdoors.
- No Ducts: 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.
- Year-Round, Whole Home/Business Comfort: Ductless systems provide home and business owners just the right amount of heating and cooling needed by installing 2 to 8 indoor units connected to one outdoor unit. Indoor units vary by size and style and each creates its own “zone” of comfort, allowing you to heat or cool individual rooms, hallways, and open spaces.
