What Is a Ductless Heating and Cooling System?

A ductless heating and cooling system is a multi-zone temperature control system. The system uses an outdoor compressor and a single ductless interior unit for each "zone" instead of ducting to distribute air. A single room or a whole house can be heated or cooled by this effective, adaptable system. In particular, it does not call for the installation of an expensive, intricate ductwork system

Because mini-splits treat individual zones, they are suitable in many different applications, such as:

  • Renovations and new additions (Garage apartments, finishing basements, sun rooms, man caves, etc.)
  • Downsizing efforts (Only heating or cooling the rooms you’ll be in)
  • Rooms with hot and cold spots
  • Homes without existing ductwork

Due to their unparalleled energy efficiency, mini-splits are a fantastic addition to the heating and cooling systems in your Rainier home or place of business.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ductless Installation in Rainier, WA

How do I control my ductless system?

Each indoor unit has its own remote control, or you can request a wall-mounted control. Ask our mini-split installation experts which is best for your unique needs.

Can any home in Rainier use a ductless system?

Yes, any home can use a ductless mini-split system. They are ideal for replacing or supplementing inefficient electric baseboard, forced air, wood stoves and propane or kerosene space heaters. They can be combined with other systems or installed on their own, to suit your specific needs.

Do I still need my old heaters?

It depends on your old heaters. However, if your old system is in working order, it makes sense to keep it in place. That way, it can help supplement your mini-split system in case of extreme weather conditions or in hard-to-reach areas of the home. Our mini-split installation contractors will advise you on what makes sense at our free consultation prior to your installation.

How efficient are ductless systems?

Ductless mini-split systems are very efficient. They can operate using 25% to 50% less energy than electric resistance and forced air systems. They are one of the most eco-friendly choices available, offering:

  • Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios (SEER) between 20 and 27
  • Heating Seasonal Performance Factors (HSPF) between 10 and 12.5

Our mini-split installers install some systems providing SEER ratings over 30 and HSPF values of more than 14.

Why are ductless systems so efficient?

Three key factors contribute to the high efficiency of a ductless system:

  1. Heat and cooling zones: Ductless systems use independent controls, so you don’t waste energy heating or cooling unused rooms.
  2. No duct energy leaks: Ducts account for as much as 30% efficiency through air leaks. Without ducts, less energy is released through the air.
  3. Advanced technology: Ductless systems use inverter-driven, variable-speed compressors that allow the system to maintain constant indoor temperatures.

When were ductless systems invented?

The technology has been around since the 1970s and became popular in the 1980s. Many of these original 80s systems are still functioning.

How do I know what system I need?

Our ductless installation experts offer a free consultation to determine which size is right for your home. They will also help you determine the number of zones or rooms you wish to install the indoor units.

How reliable are ductless systems?

With proper routine cleaning and maintenance, ductless systems can last as long as 20 years or more. Most units today come with an exceptional standard warranty of 7-12 years. As mentioned, we still encounter ductless systems that have been around since the 1980s. Our installation comes with a Three-Year Gold Service Guarantee for all repairs and labor in the rare event that an issue arises with your system. 

What if I don’t have room for the indoor units on my wall?

Although most people opt for a wall-mounted system, you can choose from a wall or ceiling mount to suit your needs.
