Trend 1: Application advancements. Single-zone spaces like add-ons and sunrooms are the most popular ductless applications but installing ductless systems as the primary cooling and heating source is on the upswing.

Mark adds that improvements in low ambient heattechnology make ductless zoning systems a viable solution for residences across the country. For instance, ductless zoning systems with hyper-heating capabilities, like our H2i MSZ-FH Models, function in colder climates where heat pumps were not previously considered the best option.
