Here in the Chicago area, we like options. And we want options to address our heating and cooling needs. This is exactly what a versatile ductless system, also known as a ductless mini split, does—it offers options.

At Doornbos Heating and Air Conditioning, our heating and cooling experts want to help you achieve the highest level of comfort and energy efficiency in your home. A ductless system is a flexible and efficient system to accomplish both.

If you are in need of a ductless system installation, repair, or maintenance, there is no one better to call than Doornbos.

What Is It?

A ductless system is an alternative heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system that, as its name implies, does not require ductwork to distribute heated and cooled air in your home. You can choose ductless for heating only, cooling only, or both heating and cooling.

This system is much smaller than a traditional HVAC system and can be installed almost anywhere in your home, typically on a wall or ceiling. The ductless system is comprised of three main components:

  • The indoor unit—the air-handling unit
  • A small outdoor unit—housing the condenser and compressor
  • There is a connection between the two units—incorporating the condensate drain, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and power cable

Our comfort specialists can install multiple indoor units to one outdoor unit, producing a zone control system. Each indoor unit is controlled separately, producing a zone system with individualized high-comfort and high-efficiency results.

Where Could You Use This System?

Our professionals recommend using a ductless system anywhere in your home where you want heating or cooling and have no ductwork or access to it. Other scenarios may be supplemental heating and cooling for rooms in your Orland Park, IL and any surrounding suburb home where the heating and cooling is inconsistent or uneven.

Adding a ductless system to that room will provide you with precision comfort as well as cost-saving energy-efficiency—heating and cooling on demand.

These systems can be easily integrated into any room or area of your home, no matter the purpose of the space. On account of their flexible installation options and configuration capacity, our trained and certified experts have installed ductless systems in a multitude of applications:

  • Additions
  • Renovations
  • Older or historic homes
  • Sunrooms
  • Garages
  • Converted attics and basements
  • Part-time-used rooms
  • Condominiums
  • Areas with hot and cold spots

Its Benefits

This powerhouse of heating and cooling offers several benefits to you:

  • Great cost savings due to high energy efficiency, lack of ductwork and energy leaks, precision heating and cooling in your Illinois home
  • Improved indoor air quality due to lack of dust, dirt, bacteria, mold, and other microbials typically found in ductwork
  • Easy installation due to system’s compact size and no ductwork
  • Environmentally friendly due to use of green refrigerant
  • Quiet operation due to size and technology
