Ductless systems are heat pumps that utilize an outdoor unit, and indoor head unit and a line-set that connects the outside unit to the inside unit. During the winter, heat pumps absorb heat from the outdoor air. During the summer months, heat pumps reject heat, expelling it outdoors. Ductless units are extremely energy-efficient, quiet and comfortable.
