Most homeowners are most familiar with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a kind of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than giving conditioned air to the total residence via a network of air ducts, they heat and cool one room at a time. This allows more advanced temperature control, enhancing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits most closely resemble heat pumps in the way they operate. Both types of equipment offer electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This involves using refrigerant to draw out heat from in a building and exhausting that warm air outside. Then, a reversing valve allows the system to work backward, adding warmth to your home in the winter by extracting 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. As an alternative, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which mounts directly to the wall or ceiling in the room you are looking 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 work off of an individual outdoor condenser, permitting you to heat and cool your entire home with this system if desired. This arrangement also makes zoning practical, a highly popular feature that permits you to customize when, where and how much you heat and cool individual areas.
Mini-splits are an excellent choice for many households. Think about these reasons why using a ductless mini-split might be a smart choice for you:
