Traditional centralized heating and cooling systems use a network of ducts, vents and blowers to circulate the air around a home. These are in turn connected to an outdoor unit that draws in fresh air from the outside to help keep the space cool or warm, depending on the thermostat settings. While there are many advantages to this type of system, they do have one glaring disadvantage: the amount of room the ductwork takes up. Ductwork needs space and plenty of it, which can pose a problem for homes with limited space.

Enter the ductless split air conditioner from Carrier® Systems. As its name suggests, this home air conditioning system requires no ductwork to be installed, making it the ideal choice for people living in one- or two-bedroom apartments. Let our HVAC specialists at Sierra Air show you the many benefits of a ductless air conditioner.
Like centralized HVAC systems, Carrier ductless air conditioners have an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. The outdoor unit carries the compressor, condenser coil and fans, while the indoor unit has the evaporator and blowers. These two units are connected by a single piece of refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring for power. Other than those connections, they don’t require the installation of any major ducts in your home
One For All
There’s a common misconception that ductless mini-split air conditioning systems are not meant for large homes. While it’s true that their benefits are tailored more toward homeowners with limited space, they can also work well as an energy-efficient alternative to centralized air conditioning. The outdoor unit can actually support up to five indoor units, which means you have the option to cool your entire home using only one space-saving system.
