Ductless Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps – Twin Cities, MN
While rooftop HVAC units are the most common ways owners of small to mid-sized commercial buildings handle interior comfort, there are many situations where they cannot do the entire job. Many buildings include spaces where excess heat builds up during summer months. People who are uncomfortable can’t be as productive, and public spaces that have a reputation for being too hot are difficult to rent. Today, affordable, efficient solutions for such problems are available through the installation of ductless air conditioning and heat pump units by commercial HVAC contractors with specific experience in this technology. Our Twin Cities commercial HVAC company began installing this mini-split cooling equipment for our customers soon after the technology was introduced. Through innovative system design and selection of equipment, we have solved difficult interior comfort issues for companies throughout the Minneapolis St. Paul metro area.
- Can air conditioning be provided without central ductwork?
- Are mini-split air conditioners quiet to operate?
- How efficient are these products?
Ductless air conditioners and heat pumps are different from other HVAC systems. Using a compact outdoor condenser and compressor unit, they deliver refrigerant to almost silent indoor modules through easily concealed connections. Offering outstanding efficiency, up to 30 SEER, a single outdoor unit can work with one indoor unit or multiple interior modules. Installation is fast and simple, and the temperature in the interior space can be controlled accurately from a handheld remote or wall-mounted thermostat. The cost of a typical ductless system is highly affordable, and multiple outdoor compressors can be installed to handle the needs of large spaces, when necessary. Originally developed for residential use, manufacturers were quick to recognize that these systems were also ideal for specific commercial applications.

Ductless AC and Heat Pumps for Cooling and Heating
For Churches and Public Event Venues
With their large open spaces, lofty ceilings and architectural limitations, ensuring comfort for occupants often can’t be accomplished using traditional heating and air conditioning that relies on centralized air ducts. Ductless AC and heat pump units, often installed in multiple locations, can be an ideal solution for cooling and heating. Their quiet operation, high efficiency and unobtrusive appearance help make such spaces more comfortable.
School Buildings and Auditoriums
These spaces have many of the same features as churches, and can be equally difficult to cool during warm weather. Installation of one or more ductless systems can bring the temperature down to comfortable levels without requiring exposed ductwork. The high efficiency of this technology also helps to control costs. We can design a system to match your precise needs at a price that fits your budget.
Multi-Residential Buildings, Senior-Living Facilities and Hospitality Properties
Heating for these types of buildings is often accomplished through hot-water or steam systems. Air conditioning, however is much more difficult. Residents and guests often complain about high indoor temperatures. Ductless technology can be the perfect way to improve indoor comfort during summer months. Residents can control the conditions in their own spaces, using a simple wireless remote unit.
Interior Offices and Enclosed Spaces in Large Buildings
In warehouses, factories and distribution centers that have large open areas, interior offices present a big challenge when it comes to cooling. Warm and cool air from a rooftop furnace and air conditioner can hardly reach these enclosed spaces. Our commercial HVAC company has successfully brought indoor comfort to many such properties using ductless heating and cooling equipment.
Computer Server Rooms
Computer equipment generates a great deal of heat. Maintaining proper temperatures is crucial to avoid hardware damage or failure, but general HVAC systems often cannot provide adequate cooling for specific spaces. Through ductless air conditioning, installed by our innovative commercial HVAC company in the Twin Cities, cool temperatures can be achieved easily and cost-effectively.
