Ductless Mini Split Installation Services

Sometimes referred to as mini splits, ductless systems are a type of HVAC system that can be installed for cooling, or both heating and cooling from a single system. Your ductless system can be connected to an air conditioner to provide only cool air, or to a heat pump to provide both heating and cooling to space.

Complete systems include an outdoor unit (a heat pump or an air conditioner) and one or more indoor units that deliver conditioned air directly into the space. Ductless heat pumps are a great choice for rooms with additional comfort needs or even entire homes that don’t have access to ductwork.

There are a number of benefits users get with a ductless system:

Easy Installation

Since no ductwork is needed with a ductless mini split system, there are very few places where these systems cannot be installed.

Easy Maintenance

Many indoor units have washable filters and require only periodical cleaning. Outdoor units are designed for easy access for your contractor for those routine maintenance calls.

Quiet Operation

Both the indoor and outdoor units operate very quietly. Indoor units are typically quiet enough for libraries, classrooms, boardrooms, and the most sensitive room in the house, the bedroom. The outdoor condensing unit will generally be quiet enough to be installed under a window or near a patio so sleeping or the entertaining of guests is not disrupted.

Simple Control

They can be controlled by a thermostat or they can be regulated by an infrared remote control, like a TV remote. Ductless mini splits are attractive, efficient, and easy to use.


Indoor units blend well into interior spaces and you don’t have to sacrifice a window as you must with window air conditioning units.

Lower Energy Bills

Ductless mini splits deliver cool comfort or warmth precisely where you need it. This zoned approach eliminates energy waste and translates to real savings on your monthly bills. All family members can enjoy a comfortable temperature without breaking the bank – a win for your wallet and the environment.

Ductless Mini Splits as Heating and Cooling Systems

Ductless mini split systems operate similarly to a conventional heat pump, as both systems run all year long using electricity to produce heating and cooling. Here’s how they work when set to heating and cooling:


Ductless systems extract heat from the outside air and transfer it inside the home through refrigerant lines. The indoor unit then releases the heat into the room, helping it reach the temperature set on the thermostat. This heating method is among the most energy-efficient ways to heat a home because it doesn’t rely on burning fuel as a conventional furnace does, but rather utilizes the existing heat in the air.


When set to cooling mode, the process is essentially reversed. The refrigerant inside the ductless HVAC system absorbs heat from inside the home and then passes it through a compressor, which increases its temperature. The outdoor unit releases the heat and cools the air before returning to the outdoor unit to repeat the cycle.

Ductless Mini Split Repair to Eliminate System Issues

When you need to beat the heat during the hot summer months or stay warm during bitterly cold winter days, your heating and cooling system needs to be working properly. If it is not, call on Rusk Heating & Cooling for ductless mini split repair services.

Our experienced technicians provide exceptional service whenever you face a ductless mini split repair issue. We restore the energy efficiency and proper operation of your ductless system in a timely manner to limit comfort interruptions in your home.

Protecting Your Mini Split, Year After Year

Regular maintenance keeps your ductless mini split running smoothly and efficiently for years to come. Just like any machine, dust buildup and minor wear can reduce airflow, strain the system, and lead to higher energy bills. While conventional HVAC systems require air conditioning and furnace maintenance yearly, a ductless mini split heat pump needs two tune ups per year as it pulls double duty, providing heating and cooling.

A maintenance agreement with Rusk Heating & Cooling includes professional cleaning, performance checks, and early detection of potential issues. This proactive approach prevents expensive repairs, keeps your unit running efficiently, and extends the lifespan of your ductless mini split – guaranteeing you stay comfortable and save money in the long run. Consider it an investment in worry-free climate control for your home.
