What to Know About Ductless Mini Splits

November 3, 2015 | Blog

What to Know About Ductless Mini SplitsDuctless mini splits fill an important need for efficient heat pump cooling and heating in single rooms or limited spaces inside a home. Developed to meet restricted space requirements and replace clunky, energy-inefficient window units, this technology is one of the fastest growing sectors in U.S. residential cooling and heating. In a house without central HVAC ductwork, a ductless mini split brings superior heat pump technology to selected living spaces without the extreme expense of installing or extending ducts.

Ductless mini splits integrate a compact, wall- or ceiling-mounted indoor air handler comprised of a coil and blower fan with a downsized outdoor heat pump unit, about the size of a large suitcase. The two units are connected by a refrigerant conduit that requires only a single, three-inch hole in an exterior wall. Depending on the system, as many as five indoor air handlers can be accommodated by a single outdoor heat pump. Other advantages of ductless mini splits include:

No Ducts = More Efficiency

Ductwork is a major source of lost energy due to air leakage as well as heat transfer through the ductwork material. An average of 30 percent of the energy used to generate cooled or heated air is typically wasted in a central ducted system.

Expedited Installation

A ductless mini split system can be installed in a single day. There’s no disruptive and expensive dismantling of walls or ceilings to install ductwork and you can begin enjoying the comfort and efficiency benefits immediately.

Quiet Operation

The sound of forced air roaring through ductwork is familiar to most homeowners. The indoor air handler in ductless systems utilizes a variable speed blower that adjusts output to the temperature requirements of the room. Once the thermostat setting is achieved, the system operates at low output to maintain temperatures and is whisper quiet.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
