Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning in Denver, CO
Ducts are sometimes thought of as indispensable parts of a home’s HVAC system. But because central ACs only began to enter houses in the 1960s, older buildings don’t have them—or the space to have them. Even modern homes are sometimes built without ducts, instead opting to go with a different type of heating and cooling system: the ductless mini split.
You may live in an older house and want to escape from using window AC units for cooling. Or perhaps you’re remodeling your house or building a new one, and you want to have heating and cooling without space-eating ductwork. In either case, a ductless heating and air conditioning system is a terrific option, and Cool Sunshine Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. can do the work you need. We offer full service for ductless mini split heat pumps in Denver, CO and throughout the Denver Metro Area.

How Does Ductless Air Conditioning and Heating Work?
A ductless system is also known as a ductless mini split system because it uses a similar layout to a split air conditioner or heat pump. Except, instead of using a single large indoor unit, it has multiple smaller air handlers spread around the house. The small units are mounted on the walls in rooms, and connect to the outdoor unit through refrigerant and power lines that pass through holes drilled in the walls. Refrigerant circulates from the outdoor unit’s compressor to each of the air handlers, which then blow out heated or cooled air directly into the living space—no ducts required.
Benefits of Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning
Why might you consider having a ductless mini split heat pump installed in your home? Here are some important considerations:
- Flexibility: Ductless systems allow you to add central energy efficient heating and cooling to an older house without space for ducts. They’re also excellent for new home construction, remodeling, and for add–on rooms or rooms that are difficult to keep warm or cool (such as a garage). When heating or AC repairs are needed, a single system is effected rather than your entire home.
- Energy efficiency: Ducts allow for heat loss and heat gain as air travels through them, which lowers the efficiency of a heat pump or AC. Without ducts, a system has greater energy efficiency, helping you save money.
- Automatic zone control: Each air handler is operated with a remote control and can be adjusted separate from the other air handlers. You only need to have heating or cooling in the rooms that actually require it, and people can adjust local temperatures to match their needs.
