Eight Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split HVAC System

Ductless mini-splits can be an ideal solution for heating and cooling parts of a home. They create zoned comfort and are efficient. We examine reasons why homeowners might want this system. Mini-splits have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units. Usually, this conduit is covered by a Line-Hide, which offers protection.

Ductless systems are more efficient than air conditioners or heat pumps.

The biggest reason for this is you’re controlling one room at a time instead of the whole house. For example, maybe you have a three-bedroom house, and all three people like to be at different temperatures. One person likes it at 68, another likes it at 70, and another wants it at 75. So you can keep the house at a moderate temperature and cool those rooms separately. Then, instead of wasting energy trying to cool the whole home, you can just cool the bedrooms.

It’s environmentally friendly because it’s so efficient.

If a room doesn’t need to be cooled, you can shut off that part of the system. It requires less energy.

The dual split vane design is designed for directional airflow.

So, for example, if it’s mounted offset on a wall, you can have the vents point the other way, so you don’t lose 30% of the airflow as it hits the wall first.

They offer flexibility.

The units can heat and cool. So, just like a heat pump, they can make you comfortable year-round. And, when it’s in air conditioning mode, it removes excess humidity from your house.

Some models have i-See Sensor Technology,

which directionally points the airflow to where the heat source is. So you can have that air blowing on you if you're working out. You can also program the air to blow away from you automatically. The sensor also provides Auto-Off and Energy Saving Mode features, both of which are designed to save money.

They don’t need to be installed on walls.

Instead, floor and ceiling heads give mini-splits versatility.

They are scalable.

You can heat/cool as many rooms as possible, from just one to a whole house.As mentioned before, they are versatile enough to heat/cool the problem areas of your home without ductwork. However, your central air conditioner and furnace can do only so much. Ductless mini-splits can focus on the areas where they are deficient.
