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 with a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This delivers more direct temperature control, increasing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most like heat pumps in the way they cool. Both kinds of equipment offer electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This uses refrigerant to remove heat from inside a building and discharging that warmth outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to run backward, adding warmth to your house in the winter by removing heat from outdoor air and depositing 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 are looking to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line join to an outdoor condensing unit through a little conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks much like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
More than one indoor unit can connect to one outdoor condenser, permitting you to heat and cool your total house with this system if wanted. This set-up also makes zoning practical, a highly attractive feature that allows you to choose when, where and how much you heat and cool specific spaces.
Mini-splits are a good option for most households. Think about these reasons why using a ductless mini-split could be a good choice for your home:
