Pro Tip

Maintain maximum comfort in your home by heating and cooling only the areas you live in.

Use clear silicone caulk so you won’t have to paint it.

Set the temperature in each zone; Individual units there provide heating or cooling as needed.

Ductless units are quickly installed by professionals; several can be powered by one outside unit.

Inspect and clean filters regularly.
