Most homeowners are acquainted with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a type of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than delivering conditioned air to the entire residence via a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This provides more targeted temperature control, enhancing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits most closely resemble heat pumps in the way they operate. Both styles of equipment offer electric cooling, similar to an air conditioner. This requires using refrigerant to extract heat from inside a building and discharging that warmth outside. Then, a reversing valve allows the system to run backward, heating your home in the winter by pulling heat from outdoor air and bringing it inside.
The biggest contrast between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t have to have ductwork. Instead, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which is installed on the wall or ceiling in the room you want to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line join to an outdoor condensing unit through a small conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks similar to an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
More than one indoor unit can link to an individual outdoor condenser, enabling you to heat and cool your total residence with this system if wanted. This arrangement also makes zoning feasible, an extremely attractive feature that permits you to choose when, where and how much you heat and cool specific rooms.
Mini-splits are a good solution for many households. Consider these reasons why installing a ductless mini-split might be right for you:
