What You Should Know About Ductless Mini Split AC & Heating Systems
Ductless heating and cooling systems are a viable alternative to traditional central heating and air. One of the main advantages of a mini-split system is that it allows you to control temperatures in individual rooms, making it easier for everyone to be comfortable no matter where in the house they are.
Mini-split systems are typically made up of two components: an outdoor condenser or compressor, and an indoor evaporator or air handler. Another advantage the mini-split system has over central AC systems is that they’re perfect for homes without ductwork, which means they’re easier and quicker to install. Instead of drilling holes throughout the house for ducts, the contractor needs only drill a 3-inch hole through the wall to house the condensation drain line, tubing, and cables linking both units.
Because mini-split systems don’t use ductwork to move air through the house, they’re more efficient than central air systems, which lose airflow through ducts. According to some experts, energy losses through ducts can increase your power consumption by up to 30%. Because mini-split systems are more efficient, you get all the cooling of a central air system, while saving money on your energy bills.

What About Mini-Split Heat Pumps?
A mini-split heat pump is ideal for both homes and office buildings, because unlike systems that require ductwork, the mini-split system works in older buildings and homes that never had ducts installed. If you rely on space heaters, radiant panels, or hydronic heat, a mini-split heat pump is a perfect solution.
Also, like mini-split AC systems, the mini-split heat pump offers increased energy efficiency over other heating systems, which means lower heating bills for you.
Regardless of your cooling needs, you can count on us for an expert and affordable air conditioning installation.
Installing a Ductless HVAC Unit
Many homeowners are replacing their forced air systems with ductless HVAC systems in new residential and commercial constructions. Ductless systems are affordable, easy to install, and offer more precise temperature adjustment than other systems.
Also, many people say that ductless HVAC systems offer superior air quality and temperature control. Users can create multiple ‘temperature zones’ throughout the house or office. The ability for granular temperature control means you can heat only the rooms that are occupied, which saves you money.
