How Does a Ductless Mini-Split System Work?
A ductless mini-split system comprises two main parts: an indoor air handling unit and an outdoor condenser. The indoor unit is typically wall- or ceiling-mounted and sends warm or cool air directly into your living space. There are typically multiple indoor air handling units, one in each room, that connect to the same outdoor condenser to dispense or absorb heat. Each indoor unit can be independently controlled.
Ductless Air Conditioner
Conventional central air conditioning systems generate cold air at a single point and then distribute it through large ducts throughout your property. However, ductless AC units use an individual fan and condenser unit for each room so you can better control the indoor temperature.
Ductless Heat Pump: Heating and Cooling
Ductless heat pumps provide year-round comfort control by supplying heat in the winter and cooling in the summer. While furnaces and air conditioners heat or cool the air through combustion of a fuel like natural gas or heating oil, heat pumps simply transfer air from one place to another.
To warm the space, they pull heat from outdoor air and pump it through refrigerant-filled coils into your property. For a cooling effect they do the opposite, pushing warm, indoor air out.
Benefits Of Choosing a Ductless Heating and Cooling System
Here are some of the best reasons to switch to a ductless mini-split system for your home or business:
Money-saving. A ductless system allows you to only heat and cool the rooms you use, helping keep energy costs down. Moreover, you can avoid the energy losses associated with the ductwork of central forced air systems.
Quiet. Ductless mini-splits are much quieter than ducted units. Since the system is split between an indoor and outdoor unit, the only noise you hear is the fan needed to move air. This is ideal for rooms that require peace and quiet, like a nursery or home office.
Flexible. Ductless HVAC systems are great for older homes or businesses, where installing a central heating or cooling system may not be possible due to a lack of space for ductwork. They’re a good fit for areas like garage workshops and finished basements where you may need a boost of heating or cooling.
