The Advantages of a Central System Without the Hassles

Ductless split systems are the ultimate room air conditioner and the cooling solution of choice for the majority of the world. Why? Because ductless split systems can deliver the quiet, unobtrusive zone cooling of a central system without the high cost or challenges of installing ductwork.

They’re ideal for additions or renovations, garage or attic conversions, sunrooms, interior rooms without windows or exterior walls and virtually any home without existing ductwork.

Outdoor condenser transfers heat to the outdoors. Compact unit can be placed at ground level, hung on an outside wall or placed on the roof of a building. Maximum line lengths from 66 to 144 ft.

Like a central air conditioner, ductless split systems are two-piece systems with one part outdoors and one (or multiple) indoor units that distribute the conditioned air. Small electrical and refrigerant lines pass through a 3” hole in an exterior wall and connect the indoor and outdoor units. You will need a licensed professional to handle this part of the installation

Our systems come in a variety of configurations, so you can install the indoor unit(s) on a wall or, with adequate clearance, in the ceiling. And, you won’t be limited to placing the indoor unit in a room with an exterior wall. Unlike many other room cooling solutions, ductless split systems can be installed in interior rooms, even those without windows. We offer cooling-only models as well as high-efficiency heat pump models that heat and cool for year-round comfort.

Quiet Performance

Ductless split systems are extremely quiet because the condensing unit that contains the compressor is located outdoors. The indoor unit(s) produce only fan noise and can be located virtually anywhere in a room. They’re ideal anywhere you want to keep noise out and performance in – a home theater, bedroom or home office.

Cool One Room or Several

One of the disadvantages of central systems is the all-or-nothing temperature setting. Even zoned central systems generally don’t allow you to set individual comfort settings in specific rooms. With a Friedrich multi-zone ductless system you can independently control up to four interior rooms with a single outdoor unit. In addition to personalizing your comfort, you can save money by turning off the units in unoccupied rooms

Energy efficiency also helps you save money, so you’ll appreciate how energy-efficient our systems are. All Friedrich models exceed federal 13.0 SEER requirements, and more than half have super-high ratings of 16.5 to 22.0 SEER. We have seven Energy Star qualified models including six with EERs of 12.5 or higher and SEERs of 15.0 or higher that may qualify for federal tax credits .

Inverter Technology lets each indoor unit adjust capacity and cooling output to provide only the BTU/h needed to cool at a given time. For example, an 18,000 BTU/h system may produce only 15,500 BTU/h if that’s all that’s needed to maintain the desired temperature. More efficient operation reduces energy consumption and saves money.

Ductless split systems are a great option for so many reasons. You won’t have the high labor and material costs of installing ductwork, and most systems can be up and running in a few hours. No ducts means no loss of cooling power due to leaks, cracks or loose connections in ductwork– all the cooling comes directly to your rooms. And there’s no need to clean dirty air ducts that can harbor dust, germs and allergens.
