The majority of homeowners are acquainted with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a type of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than giving conditioned air to the total residence through a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This provides more advanced temperature control, increasing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits most closely resemble heat pumps in the way they operate. Both types of equipment deliver electric cooling, similar to an air conditioner. This involves using refrigerant to remove heat from within a building and issuing that heat outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to run backward, adding warmth to your house in the winter by extracting heat from outdoor air and bringing it inside.
The largest difference between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t require ductwork. Alternatively, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which is installed on the wall or ceiling in the area you wish to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line connect to an outdoor condensing unit through a little conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can work off of an individual outdoor condenser, allowing you to heat and cool your complete house with this system if desired. This configuration also makes zoning possible, a very popular feature that lets you determine when, where and how much you heat and cool individual rooms.
Mini-splits are an excellent solution for many households. Consider these reasons why installing a ductless mini-split may be right for you:
Ductless mini-splits are extremely effective systems, but you could still be considering why you would want to select it over a common furnace and air conditioner. Here’s why a growing number of the U.S. homeowners are using ductless mini-splits:
