A Trane mini-split ductless heating and air conditioning system offers zoned temperature control for an area where ducts are not available. The only holes required are for electrical connections and small refrigerant tubes. The units run automatically, though occupants can adjust the temperature with a remote control.
Ductless heating and cooling systems are small heat pumps that offer energy-efficient temperature control. If the home does not require a system that provides heat, ductless air conditioning is also available. These units use an outside condenser unit. The installer places a small indoor air handler in the area the unit serves. This wall-mounted unit includes heat exchanger coils and a quiet blower that circulates air from the room. As the air passes through the coils, they heat or cool it to the set temperature.
In homes with existing central heating and cooling, the system offers a more economical option for climate control without having to expand the existing system. In homes that previously used other methods of heating or cooling, the multi-split system operates in a similar manner, but it has multiple heat exchangers located in the areas it serves. The multi-split option provides economical heating and cooling without the expense or trouble of installing ducts throughout the home.
