Exploring Ductless Hybrid and Crossover Systems: A Guide for HVAC Professionals
Discover the differences between Ductless Hybrid and Crossover systems and why these innovative solutions matter for HVAC professionals looking for enhanced performance.
Ductless Hybrid Systems: Merging Comfort And Efficiency
Carrier’s Ductless Hybrid systems combine the benefits of ductless control with existing ductwork. Leveraging a ductless single or multi-zone inverter-driven outdoor unit, this system works seamlessly with ductless style indoor units or multi-position Fan Coils—or a combination of both. Ideal for new constructions, home remodels, energy-saving projects and expanded living spaces, Ductless Hybrid systems offer loads of flexibility.
Crossover Systems: A Path To Innovation
In contrast, Carrier’s Crossover system is an innovative choice for add-on or traditional heat pump replacements. This horizontal discharge, variable-speed, inverter-driven single zone heat pump integrates effortlessly with Carrier’s multi-position Fan Coil system or traditional Furnace with Evaporator Coil. The result is a blend of efficiency and adaptability, perfect for modernizing heating and cooling solutions.
Shared Benefits of Ductless Hybrid & Crossover Systems
Efficient Space Utilization
Both systems are designed to occupy minimal space, a significant advantage over traditional HVAC units. While Ductless Hybrid systems adapt indoor units to blend well with existing decor, Crossover systems' horizontal discharge outdoor unit complements a variety of spaces.
Advanced engineering ensures near-silent operation, offering relief from noisy HVAC units. This characteristic is particularly beneficial for homes in noise-sensitive areas or those with limited outdoor installation options.
Inverter-driven technology enables rapid temperature attainment and consistent maintenance, minimizing energy usage. Customizable indoor unit options and built-in zoning contribute to lower energy waste.
Both Ductless Hybrid and Crossover systems offer cost-effective upgrades to existing HVAC systems. Plus, available tax credits and rebates facilitate accessibility to homeowners.
