Purchasing and Installing Mini-Split Units

Durastar’s mini-split units are available nationwide for direct purchase. We recommend, however, working with a professional heating and cooling contractor when determining the best combination of equipment to achieve year-round comfort and performance. It is important to note that product warranties may be voided if they are not installed by a licensed HVAC contractor.

We strive to provide solutions that not only meet the needs of your environment but also are accessible to a wide range of budgets. If you need further assistance deciding between several different models, then tour our Things to know library or talk with your contractor. They will help you understand which specifications are most important to compare and which models will provide optimal performance within your specified parameters.
