Most homeowners are acquainted with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a type of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than providing conditioned air to the full home through a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This provides more direct temperature control, improving comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most like heat pumps in the way they run. Both kinds of equipment offer electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This uses refrigerant to remove heat from within a building and discharging that warmth outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to run backward, warming your house in the winter by removing heat from outdoor air and adding it inside.
The largest contrast between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t need ductwork. Alternatively, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which fits directly on the wall or ceiling in the space you want to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line link 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 link to one outdoor condenser, enabling you to heat and cool your total house with this system if wanted. This set-up also makes zoning practical, a very attractive feature that allows you to choose when, where and how much you heat and cool individual spaces.
Mini-splits are a good option for most households. Think about these reasons why using a ductless mini-split may be a good choice for your home:
