What Are Mini Split HVAC Systems?

Ductless mini split heat pump systems allow you to create temperature zones in your home through the use of indoor air handling units which can be installed in various rooms. Each unit can be controlled individually with a remote control.

All of the units are connected to an outdoor condenser which absorbs heat from the outside air during the winter and sends it into a home’s living areas through the indoor air handlers. Typically, one condenser can cover four indoor units.

The connection between the outdoor unit and indoor units requires only a small hole. A ductless heat pump system eliminates the need for ductwork, and they are easier to install than traditional HVAC systems.

Why Should I Switch from Electric Home Heating?

Energy Savings

Ductwork is difficult to repair and expensive to install since it’s between your walls and in your attic. Clogged, damaged, and leaking ducts are some of the major reasons why traditional furnaces are so inefficient. Since mini splits have no ducts, they avoid most of these energy losses. Mini split systems are on average 30% more efficient than a traditional heating and cooling system with ducts. 

Temperature Zones

It seems like teenagers always want to turn the heat on full blast, but they don’t want to pay the energy bill. With mini splits, you can create temperature zones for different areas of your house. If your kids are cold, they can turn up the heat in their rooms while you stay comfortable downstairs at your desired temperature. Each zone comes equipped with its own thermostat. 

Older Home that Needs a New HVAC System

If you’re a house flipper or a DIYer, mini splits are the perfect solution for upgrading your older home. Since ductwork can be difficult to repair and replace, it may cost less to go the ductless route instead. Mini splits are lighter and easier to install than a new air conditioning unit. These units are very quiet and inconspicuous too, making them a modern investment in a new home.
