Before You Buy
Need help deciding what kind of heating and cooling product is right for you? We've got some tips and advice on how to choose the right product to increase your efficiency and home comfort levels.

Keeping your family comfortable is more than just putting a new air conditioner next to your home or a furnace in your basement. It's about matching products to create a system that can not only enhance your comfort, but be the key to higher energy efficiency and savings on your utility bills. That's why every homeowner should be aware of the products that make a complete system.

Sure, your Payne® dealer will help by recommending options that fit your home. But understanding the products available and how they work together will help you in your decision-making.

    Ductless System

    If you’d like to add heating or air conditioning to a room that isn’t part of your current system—say an attic room or garage—or any area of your home that isn’t equipped with the ductwork, a ductless system could be your solution. Unlike a bulky window unit, a ductless system sits high on your wall and delivers treated air quietly right in your living space, while the compressor is a separate outdoor unit.
