Ductless System Installations
Very often a ductless heating or cooling system is installed to improve the comfort of a single room of your home. Whether you go for AC only or heating & cooling, the ductless system will have an indoor wall unit and an outdoor fan unit.
The indoor unit sits inside your home on the wall of the room you are heating or cooling. The indoor wall unit blows air into the room and is either controlled by a handheld remote or a thermostat depending on a variety of factors.
The outdoor unit sits outside your home and should be placed in the optimal position to ensure it does not freeze and the noise does not bother you.
Whatever the situation or type of room you have in your home, our Home Comfort Advisors will take you through each step and quote you a direct upfront price, that’s the Donaldson way! You’ll know exactly what work we are doing before we start your installation.

The biggest difference between a heat pump and a mini-split is that a heat pump does heating and cooling while a mini-split is available as cooling only if you wanted. They are great for areas in a home that have temperature differences, additions, and garages, but they can also heat or cool multiple rooms in your home by using more than one wall unit.
