How Does a Ductless System Work?

Ductless systems involve two main parts: an outdoor compressor and an indoor unit to circulate air. A conduit connects the two parts. The primary benefit of a ductless system is the ability to deliver comfort without any ductwork.

You can mount the indoor unit to the wall or ceiling. You can add multiple indoor units to different areas of your home to create a zone control system. Each indoor unit has a thermostat, giving you greater control over the temperature in your home.

Benefits of Going Ductless

A ductless system offers several distinct advantages over traditional HVAC systems:

  • The ability to independently control temperatures across your home
  • Improved energy savings and lower utility bills
  • No energy loss through duct leaks
  • A flexible option for homes without ducts or those in need of new ductwork
  • Add a mini split to new additions, sunrooms, and other areas without air ducts
  • Ductless systems are extremely quiet, making them a good choice for bedrooms and other areas where you want to minimize noise
  • Affordable installation
  • Easy to maintain
  • Advanced filtration systems for cleaner air

HVAC systems connected to air ducts are less efficient. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), more than 30 percent of the air in your ductwork can escape, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space like an attic.

Adding a ductless system to your home increases energy efficiency. You won't experience air loss since your heating and cooling equipment isn't attached or dependent on ductwork.

Ductless Installation or Replacement

Rely on a trusted professional to install your ductless system. Your Carrier professional will safely connect the power and refrigerant lines to ensure the best performance.

Carrier dealers offer financing options and maintenance packages to ensure you get the best performance from your HVAC system. Carrier remains one of the most trusted names in the business.

How Long Does it Take to Install a Ductless System?

A qualified Carrier Technician can usually install a ductless system in a single day. They will find a suitable location for the outdoor unit and then connect the refrigerant and power lines to the indoor unit.

Ductless Repairs

Carrier Ohio provides a network of nearby Carrier dealers that offer 24/7 emergency services to be there when you need them. Carrier technicians are licensed, bonded, and insured.

Here are the top three signs that you need to get your ductless system repaired:

  1. Spotty comfort—Hot and cold spots could be due to several factors, such as a dirty air filter, a refrigerant leak, or a problem with the compressor.
  2. Strange noises—Common noises that may indicate a problem include grinding, squealing, or clicking noises.
  3. Water leaks—This could be due to a blockage in the condensate drain line, a frozen evaporator coil, or a refrigerant leak.

Ductless Maintenance

Dirt and neglect are your ductless system's biggest enemies! You invest a lot in your HVAC equipment—professional maintenance ensures you get the best value.

Be sure to ask your Carrier dealer about joining a maintenance service agreement to offset the cost of parts, labor, and service calls.

Your technician will inspect and clean all parts during a typical maintenance visit. They will even send out reminders about when to change your air filters!

How Do I Maintain a Ductless System?

Ductless systems require little maintenance. Clean the filters regularly and schedule an annual checkup with a qualified Carrier technician.
