What’s So Great About Carrier Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems?

Benefits of Ductless Mini Split Installation

Carrier ductless HVAC systems differ from the conventional forced air furnaces and central air conditioning systems many homeowners are used to. Instead of using a central indoor unit and ducts to deliver conditioned air across the home, ductless mini splits have dedicated air handling units that are installed in each zone of the home. No ducts are needed as heated or cooled air is sent directly into the targeted space by each unit.

Installing a ductless mini split system, including Carrier ductless HVAC systems, can bring many advantages to Michigan homeowners. Some of the benefits you’ll enjoy from a ductless mini split HVAC system include:

  • Zoned comfort. With individual air handlers installed in specific areas of the home, heating and cooling in each space can be controlled independently of all other rooms. These systems give homeowners and their families the ability to set temperatures to everyone’s unique preferences, without affecting comfort levels across the entire home.
  • Energy savings. Thanks to their supreme energy efficiency and the advantages of zoned comfort, Carrier ductless heating and cooling systems help homeowners save on energy bills compared to using ducted conventional HVAC equipment. Seeing as most homes have 20 to 30 percent energy loss through duct leaks, there’s an immediate savings when you go ductless! When replacing a forced air HVAC system, expect to save between 30 to 40 percent on your energy costs.
  • Easy installation and versatility. One ductless heat pump unit can support multiple indoor air handlers, giving homeowners the flexibility to add efficient heating and cooling in specific areas or throughout the house. Without the need for ducts, Carrier ductless heating and cooling systems can be installed rather quickly. Air handling units are connected to the outdoor heat pump via a line set that runs through an exterior wall, requiring a hole only about 3 inches in diameter.
  • Better indoor air quality. By eliminating air circulation through dusty, dirty ductwork, Carrier ductless heating and cooling systems can deliver better indoor air quality versus ducted systems. Air handlers have dedicated filters that require minimal routine maintenance to preserve air quality and performance.
