Ductless Systems in Commercial Buildings
Add comfort and clean air to your Illinois commercial building at an affordable cost.
A ductless system—or mini split—allows you to provide additional heating and air conditioning to areas of your Oak Brook and Chicago area building that have no ductwork. A ductless system also offers the perfect solution for rooms that require a different temperature than other parts of your building.

What Is a Ductless Mini Split?
Most commercial HVAC systems include heating and cooling equipment that uses air ducts to circulate conditioned air throughout a building. Ductless systems are much more flexible.
All a mini split requires is an outdoor unit and one or more indoor mounted units. The indoor and outdoor units are connected by copper tubing lines which circulate the refrigerant between the coils of both units. The outdoor variable-speed inverter compressor provides maximum comfort and efficiency by continuously adjusting heating and cooling capacities to meet your building’s needs.
Going ductless benefits your pocketbook in several ways:
- Ductless systems are much easier to install and maintain than conventional ducted systems. Building owners no longer need to cut through walls and floors to install new ductwork.
- You can mount the indoor units practically anywhere in your building, allowing you to zone.
- Over time, ductwork tends to form leaks and holes that allow conditioned air to escape. A ductless system eliminates this problem.
- Ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration that reduces dust, allergens, and other contaminants that compromise your indoor air quality (IAQ).
- Ductless systems use less power to operate than traditional HVAC systems.
According to ENERGY STAR®, a ductless mini split can cut your cooling costs by 30 percent compared to a conventional system.
Each indoor unit has a thermostat, allowing you to create multiple temperature zones in the same building. Any rooms in your building that require specific temperatures will benefit from a zone control system.
Zoning also lets you decide which rooms need more heating and air conditioning, lowering your energy bills. This solution is perfect for offices, apartments, classrooms, media rooms, and other applications. Most systems come with remote controls that allow you to set the temperature in each room.
Take Control of Your Comfort
A ductless mini split gives you greater control over the climate and temperature of your building. It allows you to direct the comfort where you need it most. If a particular room or section of your building requires extra heating or cooling, a ductless system can provide it.
Because they use less energy, ductless systems are much more environmentally friendly. They are a smart investment for any commercial building owner.
