Most homeowners are informed about central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a kind of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than providing conditioned air to the full residence through a network of air ducts, they heat and cool one room at a time. This delivers more advanced temperature control, increasing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits most closely resemble heat pumps in the way they operate. Both styles of equipment provide electric cooling, similar to an air conditioner. This requires using refrigerant to extract heat from inside a building and exhausting that warm air outside. Then, a reversing valve allows the system to work backward, adding warmth to your home in the winter by extracting heat from outdoor air and depositing it inside.
The main distinction between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t have to have ductwork. Alternatively, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which is installed on the wall or ceiling in the space you wish to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line join to an outdoor condensing unit through a narrow conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks much like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can connect to a single outdoor condenser, enabling you to heat and cool your total home with this system if if you want. This configuration also makes zoning practical, a highly attractive feature that lets you determine when, where and how much you heat and cool individual rooms.
Mini-splits are a great solution for most households. Think about these reasons why installing a ductless mini-split may be a good choice for you:
