The majority of homeowners are informed about central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a form of ductless heating and cooling. Instead of providing conditioned air to the total house with a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This allows more advanced temperature control, improving comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most similar to heat pumps in the way they operate. Both types of equipment provide electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This involves using refrigerant to extract heat from in a building and exhausting that warm air outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to work backward, heating your residence in the winter by removing heat from outdoor air and bringing it inside.
The main distinction between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t require ductwork. Instead, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which mounts directly to the wall or ceiling in the space 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 much like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
More than one indoor unit can link to one outdoor condenser, enabling you to heat and cool your full home with this system if wanted. This arrangement also makes zoning feasible, an extremely popular feature that allows you to choose when, where and how much you heat and cool specific rooms.
Mini-splits are a good solution for the majority of households. Consider these reasons why getting a ductless mini-split could be a smart choice for your home:
