Everything You Need to Know About Ductless Mini-Splits

You may have resorted to a few attractive solutions as you work to keep everyone in your home nice and comfortable all year, like wearing layers of clothing or blankets in one area of the house while cranking up the heat in another. Or, you have plenty of cool air downstairs, but upstairs, in the bedrooms, it’s never cool enough – especially when you’re trying to sleep.

Life can be full of indoor comfort surprises, but before you give your current furnace or central air system the heave-ho, consider another fascinating and practical solution – Ductless mini-splits.

What Is a Ductless Mini-Split?

A mini-split system can cool and heat a house without the ductwork needed for a traditional HVAC system. It consists of one or more combined outdoor compressors and condensers, which feed each indoor air-handling unit with a conduit that operates like a heat pump. Each remote-controlled indoor unit is installed in any room where you want individualized temperature control. They can be wall-mounted in rooms where ductwork installation is challenging or impossible. You can even install a ductless unit in a room or area where central heating or cooling already exists to get the extra comfort you otherwise lack.

Single-Zone Mini Split System

As the name implies, a single zone system comprises a condenser that connects to a single indoor air-handling unit. This is a convenient and affordable option for those who need year-round comfort in a single room.

Multi-Zone Mini-Split System

Multi-zone systems – working from a single condenser/compressor – can handle up to 5 wall-mounted air distribution units. As a result, these systems usually cost less than traditional whole-house central air systems. Our customers find them more convenient and cost-effective for rooms needing individualized controlled comfort.

Benefits of Mini-Split Systems

Ductless mini-split systems have continued to gain popularity over the years for a multitude of reasons, including:

Ductless systems operate 20 – 60% more efficiently than traditional HVAC units. In addition, they require fewer components to install, resulting in greater ease of installation and maintenance.

With fewer materials and easier installation, mini-splits cost up to 50 percent less than central air.

Ductless systems offer whisper-quiet operation – can you say that about your central AC system?

If you go “whole-house” ductless, you’ll have no air ducts to keep clean, check on, fix, or replace as circumstances require.
