Why Ductless Mini-Splits Are Great For Sunrooms
Carrier ductless mini-split systems are great solutions for enclosed patios and sunrooms because they are designed to work as both heaters and air conditioners for year-round comfort.
Mini-splits have two main components: An outdoor heat pump connected to an air handler inside — usually mounted high on the wall out of the way. Instead of ductwork, there’s a set of narrow, flexible lines that run through the wall so refrigerant or coolant can travel between the two.
Inside, the air handlers have advanced sensors that monitor temperature and humidity and adjust your comfort accordingly. They are great at evenly distributing the air throughout a room and eliminating hot and cold spots.
And, you never have to worry about furniture blocking vents or baseboard heaters.
Flexible Options For Your Home
Our homeowners choose to install a single zone of Carrier ductless air conditioning and heating to keep their sun room comfortable year -round. While they chose to use a wall-mounted air handler, other homeowners choose a wall or vent-mounted option that works with their floor plan and layout.
Because there are so many options available, you can choose a system that works with your home, while delivering world-class results, no matter what option you choose.
The system can also be controlled from a wall-mounted thermostat or a convenient handheld remote. And, most systems even take advantage of the Carrier CliMate app so you can control your system from an app on your smartphone or tablet! It works anywhere you get mobile service or a wifi signal.
Mini Splits Are Quiet, Too!
