Free Talk: Heating & Cooling with Ductless Mini-Splits

Used for decades in Europe and Asia, “ductless” mini-split heat pumps
differ from traditional home heating and cooling systems. Instead
of leaky and bulky duct-work, ductless mini-split heat pumps use an
indoor unit connected to an outdoor unit via refrigerant lines. Up to 8
indoor units can be attached to one outdoor unit allowing for different
temperature settings in various locations in the house. Find out how mini-splits can cut cooling costs by 30%.
