The majority of homeowners are acquainted with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a type of ductless heating and cooling. In place of 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 advanced temperature control, enhancing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most similar to heat pumps in the way they operate. Both kinds of equipment provide electric cooling, just like an air conditioner. This involves using refrigerant to remove heat from within a building and discharging that heat outside. Then, a reversing valve permits the system to work backward, adding warmth to your residence in the winter by removing 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 fits directly on the wall or ceiling in the room you are looking to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line connect to an outdoor condensing unit through a narrow conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can connect to an individual outdoor condenser, enabling you to heat and cool your total house with this system if wanted. This configuration also makes zoning possible, a very desirable feature that allows you to determine when, where and how much you heat and cool specific rooms.
Mini-splits are a good option for the majority of households. Consider these reasons why using a ductless mini-split might be a good choice for your needs:
