The most common applications for Ductless Mini Split Heat Pump & AC Systems are in multifamily housing or as retrofit add-ons to single family homes with "non-ducted" heating or cooling systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels and space heaters (wood, kerosene, propane)
Ductless mini split air conditioners are also becoming the #1 choice for people replacing their old noisy, bulky and unsafe window AC units. Mini Splits are also a great choice if you're building new room additions or if you're living in small apartments, where extending or installing distribution ductwork (for a central air-conditioner or heating systems) is not feasible
Similar to central air conditioners, split air conditioners have two main components: the outdoor compressor and an indoor air handler, NO Duct Work required
Advantages of Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioners
Over Central A/C Systems and Window A/C Units Include:
Whisper quiet operation is one of the main reasons they are very popular.
Energy efficient, save money on electric bills!
Affordable in comparison to a central Air Conditioner.
Individual Zoning. Each indoor unit has its own thermostat so cooling need only be turned on when someone is in the room or zone.
The energy loss associated with traditional ductwork does not apply to a mini split system. The outside unit can be placed up to 50 feet away from the indoor evaporator.
Safe & Secure, using a window a/c makes it very easy for intruders to enter your home. The mini split need only have a two inch hole drilled into a wall for the conduit.
Energy Star Certified. Not only do they draw approx 40% less electricity when compared to other types of split AC units but they also qualify for governmental rebates depending on your state laws.
Long term solution, great for new additions or when replacing existing Air Conditioner.
