Ductless Mini-Split Systems FAQ
What Are Ductless Mini-Split Heating & Cooling Systems?
Ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems are small devices installed inside your home. They are usually installed over doorways and high up on interior walls and are made up of 2 parts: the outdoor condenser and the indoor unit, linking your individual mini-split to your primary air conditioning or heating unit, typically found outside.
What Are the Benefits & Advantages of Ductless Mini-Split Systems?
There are 3 major benefits of installing mini-splits inside your home:
- Flexibility: Correcting air flow and temperature issues in your home doesn’t have to mean sacrificing appearance. Mini-split systems come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and looks, making them accessible for homeowners who are design-conscious and make an effort to coordinate the furniture, patterns, colors, and other aspects of their home’s indoor appearance.
- Simple installation: Mini-split systems are typically much easier to install than other heating and cooling systems. Installing a mini-split system requires drilling a small hole through the wall where you wish to mount your unit, connecting it to your primary heating or cooling system via a conduit, and switching it to “ON.”
- Energy Efficiency: If your home has issues with air circulation, a ductless mini-split system could be the right solution for you. Installing a unit in a room that is harder to heat or more difficult to cool can give your entire HVAC system a break, saving you money on your monthly utility bill. Mini-split systems also require less energy to function and keep you from having to heat or cool rooms that don’t need heating or cooling.
Can a Ductless Mini-Split System Heat or Cool My Entire Home?
Ductless mini-split systems are typically best for heating and cooling individual rooms or sections of the house. However, you could theoretically install multiple mini-split systems throughout your home, thereby effectively warming up or cooling off your entire home. This often works best (and tends to be more affordable) for homes that do not have any ductwork in place.
