Ductless Split Systems Air Conditioning
No ductwork No problem. Incredibly quiet, sleek and energy-efficient, ductless split systems are the smart way to cool rooms without ductwork-even those without windows or exterior walls. And new for 2011, high-efficiency 115V models with Inverter Technology!

Why choose wall-mounted
If you have one or more rooms without exterior walls or windows, a wall-mounted ductless split system will work beautifully. The indoor air handler is sleek, unobtrusive and quiet. You need only a 2" clearance from the ceiling, so you'll have lots of placement options. All systems come with a remote control, so even units high on the wall are easy to operate. There's also an optional wired, wall-mounted controller for models over 18,000 BTU.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I should have buy this unit a long time ago for some items the french guide translation isn't too good so I had to refer to the english one to be sure about the instructions. 5/24/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by I am very, very pleased This is my first split unit and I am very impressed. The internal panel is unobtrusive and doesn't stand out in a small room. The system is powerful enough to cool the entire (very small) house, but most of all, it is QUIET. It works very fast. I understand that it is also energy efficient although I did not have a chance to see the electric bill yet. The hot days are here and I absolutely love it. Only one warning--it has to be intalled by professionals and the installation was more expensive than the whole system. Still, it is very much worth it. 6/22/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Quiet The indoor and the outdoor units are both very quiet with the indoor nearly to the extreme. The quality was better than expected, especially the pipes for connecting the outdoor with the indoor unit were better than expected. Installation took a weekend including re-doing the walls where pipes connecting the two units are imbedded. The unit is installed in the bedroom which now can be cooled to the desired temperature without having to cool down the whole house. 6/28/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent (and super quiet) product Upon installation, I have been operating this system for 2 weeks and could not be happier with the shear comfort, efficiency and quiet of this 12,000 BTU system. It was worth the additional expense versus the window and through the wall options. 7/19/11

Warranty Info

Warranties on mini split air conditioners only include parts and do not include labor. The licensed HVAC Technician who installs your air conditioner should always provide you with a labor warranty (preferably for at least a full year to compliment the manufacturers' parts warranty).

AJ Madison will only finalize a Mini Split (Ductless Split System) purchase with an authorized HVAC Technician. AJ Madison recommends the installation of a mini-split system to be performed by a trained and qualified HVAC technician with the proper knowledge and background. A trained technician will be able to judge the best location for the air handling (evaporator) unit and also the correct size for the area the unit will heat and/or cool. For assistance with all your technical needs please contact our technical department at

Should you experience an issue during the installation or the initial startup of a unit please do not contact the manufacturer. You should have the technician that installed your system contact either AJ Madison or the manufacturer. We cannot accept any service or warranty calls from anyone but a licensed HVAC technician. We have a full technical support team available to help you throughout the installation process.

AJ Madison, Inc. cannot be held liable for improper installation and operation of any product purchased from our company. Should a warranty issue arise in which parts will need to be replaced, an installation receipt will be required along with your AJ Madison sales receipt.
