Ductless and Mini-Split Systems for Single and Multi-Zones
Lennox® mini-split heat pumps and air conditioners are ideal for heating and cooling spaces like add-on rooms and sunrooms where installing or extending ductwork isn’t possible. Secure and convenient, mini-split systems are easy to install, using a compact indoor and outdoor unit connected through a small hole in your wall. One outdoor unit can support up to five indoor comfort zones, providing you with a customized whole-home heating or cooling solution. With efficiencies of up to 24.5 SEER and 11.5 HSPF, Lennox mini-split systems deliver energy-efficient comfort, and may even make you eligible for money-saving rebates. Smooth inverter technology ensures quiet operation and keeps cooled or heated air flowing without the typical starts and stops of conventional systems, virtually eliminating temperature swings. Select mini-split heat pumps also offer outstanding cold-climate capabilities, operating in temperatures as low as -22°F.
If you’ve decided to expand your home, a separate ductless or ducted mini- or multi-split system can heat and cool the new space without modifying your existing HVAC system or spending money on new ductwork.
Licensed HVAC contractors size all heating and air-conditioning systems to heat and cool a defined space under specific conditions including the number of windows and doors, level of insulation, and local design temperature. Your system was sized to keep your home comfortable as designed and won’t be able to sufficiently condition the expansion. Adding ductwork in the new space and connecting to the existing trunk isn’t practical as the system’s not powerful enough. Replacing the whole system would be costly and you wouldn’t have the same control over your comfort in the new space.
Our ductless and ducted mini- and multi-split systems are Zoned Comfort Solutions® with intuitive controls and an outdoor unit connected to up to eight indoor units via refrigerant lines. Each indoor unit serves a designated comfort zone in the home. Your ductless indoor unit options include wall-mounted, floor-mounted, and ceiling cassette styles. They’re great options for the new addition because they’re simpler to install than ducted units and they function as a stand-alone system not connected to the system in the rest of your home. If you’re into high ceilings, you can have them in your expanded livable space with a ductless system.
Zoned Comfort Solutions provide designated energy-efficient heating and air conditioning for your new comfort zone. The outdoor unit’s INVERTER-driven compressor modulates the system’s capacity to meet the zone’s demand for heating and cooling regardless of the shifting heat load caused by occupancy, activities in the room, or the sun moving over the home during the day. With this approach, the system maintains your preferred temperature, or set point, for the zone while using minimal energy. Your addition might be an extra bedroom, an exercise room, a home office, or even a group of rooms with their own separate requirements, but each zone can have an individual setpoint. Also, if you use the additional space infrequently, you can save money and energy by turning off conditioning until you’re ready to use the zone again.
Daikin is the World’s No. 1 air conditioning company. Daikin is a global innovator and provider of advanced air conditioning solutions for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. For over 95 years, we have created the most efficient, environmentally-friendly comfort systems enabled by extensive research. With sales in over 150 countries worldwide, Daikin is revolutionizing the way people and businesses think about heating and air conditioning.
With Daikin inverter (variable-speed) technology, Daikin single and multi-zone systems feature low operational sound levels. Some Daikin units also feature our quiet mode function that allows the system to lower the sound level of the indoor unit even more. Daikin single and multi-zone systems offer SEER options up to 26.1 and state-of-the-art technology to help with efficiency. In addition to low operational sound levels, Daikin inverter technology also allows the system to deliver the capacity required to maintain the desired room temperatures. This function typically reduces energy consumption by up to 30% or more (compared to traditional fixed-speed ducted systems). Select Daikin systems offer our intelligent eye sensor. The intelligent eye is an infrared sensor with the ability to sense movement in the room. When you are in the room, the system operates normally. If you leave the room for more than 20 minutes, the system automatically changes to an energy-saving operation. The intelligent eye can offer savings up to 20% in cooling and up to 30% in heating, compared to units without this feature.
Now you can control temperatures independently, in up to eight separate zones, with a single outdoor unit. Imagine, it’s always just the right temperature, for you. Do you have electric baseboards, wall heaters, or ceiling units? A Daikin single and/or multi-zone heat pump system can be a cost-effective solution to heat and cool an average home while still using existing baseboards or wall heaters when needed. Building an addition or converting a garage or basement? A single and/or multi-zone heat pump system is a great solution when adding on to your home or converting an existing attic, garage, or basement into a living space.
