There are many options for cooling your home, but one of the most effective for homes that do not have ductwork and cannot support its installation is a ductless mini split air conditioning system.

We offer comprehensive installation services for major brands of ductless systems and can ensure that yours continues to work properly for years to come with our ongoing maintenance and repair services.
A ductless mini split air conditioner is very similar to traditional split central air conditioners with one major exception. Instead of cooling air and then distributing it through your home via ductwork, the system distributes refrigerant to individual indoor units which is then used to cool air for a single indoor unit.
So, a ductless system consists of an outdoor condenser and one or more indoor units. The condenser does the same thing as the condenser you would find in a standard central air conditioning system or heat pump. That is, it uses the air outside to condense refrigerant which is then distributed to indoor units via refrigerant lines that can be run through much smaller spaces than would be necessary to accommodate ductwork.
The indoor units then blow air over their coils to produce cold air, which is then distributed throughout that room. Some units can work in reverse as heating systems as well, providing ample indoor heating and cooling and an energy efficient alternative to the furnace you currently have installed.
Installation of a new ductless mini split air conditioning system starts with sizing a system to match the heating and cooling needs of the space in which you live. This is trickier with a ductless system as the condenser you select must be able to support the number of indoor units you want installed. Even if you only have one indoor unit installed now, you should size the outdoor unit to match however many indoor units you will want in the future.
Because ductwork is not needed, installation is relatively simple, requiring the running of refrigerant lines from the outdoor condenser to indoor units located throughout your home. You can have these installed anywhere – from your attic to your basement.
If you have an existing mini split air conditioning system installed in your home, it is important to have a preventive maintenance plan in place to protect your system against possible issues that might develop over time. This will keep it operating at peak efficiency for years to come and will ensure minimal repairs in the future. Of course, if you do need repairs at any point, Signature is available to perform them for you.

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."-Mark Kenney
"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."-Debbie Kaba
"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."-William Stolting
"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."-John Schmitt

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."-Susan Wentz
