Living in a historic home? Looking to add controlled heating and cooling to a home without the added cost of demolition and compromising your home’s existing structure? Ductless heating may be the solution you’ve been seeking.
Traditional heating solutions such as a forced air furnace, heat pumps, or boilers may not be appropriate for every home or office. In some cases your dwelling may not have existing ductwork in order for our team to install a traditional furnace. In such cases ductless heating systems provide a new way to heat and cool your home without the added cost of construction. Ductless heating systems are sometimes referred to as split systems, multi-split systems, or split-ductless systems. Regardless of the name, ductless home heating offers a cost-effective way to replace inefficient window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. By configuring each unit to your desired heating, or cooling, level you can have more control and drive down your utility costs*.

Carrier® Ductless Heating Systems
Carrier® Ductless heating systems perform in even the most extreme conditions, providing year-round comfort control, no matter what the weather’s like outside. Even at -22° F, select systems can heat at 80% capacity. They can also cool at 100% capacity when the outdoor temperature is 130° F.
Inverter technology ensures that your system provides precise temperature control while only using the energy that’s needed at any given time. The Inverter compressor automatically adjusts its speed to match indoor comfort needs.
Apart from the energy efficiency of the systems themselves, the configuration options that Ductless heating units offer can also result in greater energy savings. By targeting only the areas of your home you want to heat or cool, you’re not wasting energy on rooms that are not being occupied or don’t get as much use. Imagine – location-based heating to only areas of the home you actually use!
Carrier® Ductless systems deliver pinpointed comfort, no matter where the indoor units are placed. Want a cooler home office, but a warmer bedroom? No problem. Because units can be controlled separately, rooms can be set to different temperatures, depending on your comfort needs. Ductless systems also operate so quietly that they can be seamlessly integrated without disrupting even the most peaceful of spaces.
Installation of ductless heating can be an incredibly efficient means to target heating and cooling zones of your home or office; however, any system, no matter the type, needs to be maintained. That said, we recommend an annual maintenance check up to tune up ductless systems and to ensure that your heating and cooling is running optimally all year round.

We have seen it all: from broken heating components to older, malfunctioning units – but most importantly: we’ve fixed them all. If you should find that your ductless heater is broken, or not operating optimally, we suggest you reach out to our team of experts to get the problem fixed.
