While many of our customers are installing ductless systems in their homes, there still remain many people who are unfamiliar with these dynamo heating and cooling systems, also known as ductless mini splits or ductless heat pumps and ductless air conditioners.
We at KCA SERVICES recommend these alternative heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems because of their many benefits. Though these heating and cooling systems are not yet as popular in the U.S. as more traditional systems are, our Comfort Specialists are experts in their repair, installation, and maintenance.
The Ductless Difference
The most noticeable distinction when comparing a ductless system with a traditional HVAC system is its lack of ductwork, thus its name. A ductless system is a heat pump or air conditioner, so when you select a model, it will either provide both heating and cooling for you or air conditioning only.
A more traditional forced-air HVAC system, such as a furnace and air conditioner, has a large physical footprint. It requires both specific and considerable-in-size locations for its installation, as well as extensive connections to ductwork. Since these ductwork connections are needless with a ductless system, installation can exist almost anywhere in your home. The system is comprised of only the indoor unit, a small outdoor unit housing the compressor and condenser, a condensate drain, and the refrigerant tubing and suction tubing, as well as a power cable, all running between the indoor and outdoor units.
Many of our customers choose a ductless system for their additions, garages, basements, and areas in their homes with uneven heating. Anywhere it would be difficult to tap into your current ductwork is an ideal candidate for this type of system.
Inverter Compressor Technology
There are two types of compressors within ductless systems—rotary compressors and inverter compressors. Inverters are variable-speed compressors and have a much-more-advanced technology design. They offer precision temperature control for your home.
Where a rotary compressor simply turns on and off, operating at full or no power, an inverter compressor runs at variable speeds, only using the necessary power it needs to reach and maintain your set temperature. This type of technology guarantees optimum efficiency and energy savings by sensing your room’s current temperature and working to achieve your settings.
This process is up to 40 percent more efficient than traditional HVAC systems by ensuring your ductless uses the precise amount of energy it needs to cool or heat your area. This is why we at KCA SERVICES offer ductless systems with this energy-efficient technology. We provide HVAC systems with both the highest quality and technology to be sure you can achieve the highest levels of comfort in your home.

- Streamlined versatility—installation most anywhere and zone-control possibilities.
- Energy efficiency—no lost energy via duct leaks; absolute precision in temperature due to inverter technology.
- Improved indoor air quality—no poor-quality ductwork air blowing through your home.
- Compact size—installation possible in tight areas.
- Easy installation—few components to install.
- Cost-saving capacity—cooling and heating directly where needed.
