Purchasing the right heating and cooling system can be a hard decision. In this article, we break down the most frequently asked questions when it comes to buying and installing a ductless mini split.

What is a ductless mini split system?

A mini split is an air conditioner or heat pump system that consists of at least one indoor unit and one outdoor unit. By installing units in hard to heat or cool spaces, you set the temperature to your liking, giving you the temperature control you’ve always wanted. During installation, there is no tearing open walls, patching, or repainting required, so you can remain at ease by knowing that no additional costs will be acquired.

How much does a ductless system cost?

The best part of a mini split system is you decide how much you want to spend. Our Comfort™ series units are the most economical way to heat or cool your space, while still delivering energy efficiency and easy serviceability. These units are budget-friendly and can be purchased in a single or multi-zone system. If you’re looking for a more feature-rich system, our Infinity® series is Carrier’s premium option for temperature control. If you’re somewhere in the middle, we also offer a Performance™ series that delivers both efficiency and affordability.

There are other factors that play into price as well, including the size of your space, the amount of rooms to be heated or cooled, and the features of your ductless system. Obviously, the more spaces you need temperature control in, the more units you’ll need to purchase. Contact your local dealer for a quote and estimated pricing.

What makes mini split systems different from traditional systems?

There are many features and benefits that ductless systems have that traditional units do not. First and foremost, you get to decide which rooms to heat or cool. You can also purchase a single-zone unit for individual rooms where temperature fluctuates easily. Wherever you need more temperature control is where a mini split will come in handy. Mini split units also include Wi-Fi or a handheld remote, giving you access to temperature control without ever leaving your couch. Our more complexed units even include an occupancy sensor with the ability to direct airflow toward or away the people in that room. These benefits are unique from traditional heating and cooling systems.
