Ductless Mini Split

What Is a Mini Split?

A ductless mini-split system or “mini split” is a compact split-system air conditioner or heat pump. Whereas a traditional HVAC system requires a network of air ducts to deliver heating and cooling, a mini split uses compact air handlers that are mounted in each room or zone where they will be used. Both traditional HVAC systems and mini splits use an indoor air handler and an outdoor compressor, but a mini split can often reach areas of your home that your HVAC system might be missing. Some examples would be room additions, basements or attics, or enclosed porches.

Are There Different Types?

One of the best features of a mini split air conditioner and heat pump is how it can be individually tailored to your lifestyle. There are two mini split system options, so you can choose the best option for your unique living space. Single-zone comfort solutions allow individual rooms in your home to be controlled according to your desired level of comfort. Multi-zone comfort solutions have the ability to connect up to eight individual room units to one single outdoor unit, allowing you to control the individual temperature of each of those rooms.

What Are the Benefits?

Ductless mini splits offer the following advantages over ducted systems:

  • Delivers superb air quality, as it removes unhealthy pollutants, absorbs smells, and neutralizes odors. 
  • It is energy-efficient with independent room control and inverter-compressed technology. 
  • Produces powerful heating and consistent with hot-start technology and a precise distribution of hot air.
