Most homeowners are informed about central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a kind of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than giving conditioned air to the entire residence via a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This allows more direct temperature control, enhancing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits most closely resemble heat pumps in the way they cool. Both styles of equipment deliver electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This uses refrigerant to draw out heat from inside a building and discharging that warmth outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to run backward, heating your house in the winter by extracting heat from outdoor air and bringing it inside.
The largest distinction between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t have to have ductwork. Instead, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which is installed on the wall or ceiling in the room you are looking to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line join to an outdoor condensing unit through a narrow conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
More than one indoor unit can link to a single outdoor condenser, allowing you to heat and cool your full home with this system if wanted. This arrangement also makes zoning feasible, an extremely desirable feature that permits you to customize when, where and how much you heat and cool distinct rooms.
Mini-splits are a fantastic choice for the majority of households. Think over these reasons why using a ductless mini-split may be a smart choice for your home:
