What Is a Ductless Mini-Split?

A ductless mini-split system features indoor units that mount into rooms. These indoor units are attached to heat pumps through a very thin conduit, making installation much quicker than a furnace or air conditioner. These systems can both heat and cool a space which makes them more efficient than a window air conditioner or a space heater. 

They work by circulating the air through a particular room, or a group of rooms called a zone. Warm air within your home runs across very cold refrigerants within the indoor coils. The heated refrigerant moves out of your home, leaving temperatures within your home delightfully cool. In the outdoor unit, the ductless mini-split system releases heat. This cycle is very energy efficient, quiet, and effective. This process can be reversed in the winter to heat a space as well. 

Each air handler has its own controls. If your son wants his room hot, he can crank the heat without affecting the rest of the house. When he goes away to college, you can turn off the mini-split to prevent wasting energy on heating or cooling an empty room.

Ductless Mini-Split Installation Benefits

Save on Energy Costs

It’s estimated that ductless mini-splits save, on average, anywhere between 30-40% more energy than traditional air conditioners. Not only is this because they heat and cool much smaller spaces, but they also don’t use ductwork. Over time, ductwork can crack and leak and conditioned air escapes through it resulting in lots of energy loss. Since ductless mini-splits are ductless, you don’t have to worry about heated or cooled air escaping. 

Heat Or Cool Small Spaces

When you have a new addition to your home like a sunroom, finished attic, or room over the garage, you might be surprised to find that in order to heat and cool this new area of your home, you will need to have ductwork installed, or may need to upgrade your HVAC system. A ductless mini-split can help you avoid these additional costs by making your new space much more comfortable without needing to upgrade your entire comfort system. 

These systems are also great for buildings that are separate from your home such as well as bungalows, sheds, workshops, and guest houses. 

Minimally Invasive

You have a sunroom, but it gets too hot to enjoy sometimes. You want to put in a window air conditioner, but it will block your view. Ductless mini-splits are easy to install and minimally invasive. The indoor units can be mounted easily in most designs and the outdoor units can be safely installed in a discreet location outside your home.

Improving Air Quality

Since these systems don’t use traditional ductwork to cool or heat the home, there is less dust and debris collecting within the system. Cleaning the indoor unit and maintaining the outdoor unit provide an ideal indoor air quality that families with asthma and seasonal allergy flare-ups will appreciate. Germs won’t spread throughout your home with ductless mini-splits as they do with HVAC systems with air ducts. Have a sick family member? Isolate them in the room with the mini-split to prevent the rest of the house from getting sick.
