Benefits of a Split-System
Why a Ductless Split System
Ductless, mini-split-system heat pumps (mini-splits) make good retrofit add-ons to houses with "non-ducted" heating systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters (wood, kerosene, propane). They can also be a good choice for room additions where extending or installing distribution ductwork is not feasible, and for very efficient new homes that require only a small space conditioning system. Be sure to choose an ENERGY STAR® compliant unit and hire an installer familiar with the product and its installation.
Mini split systems tend to be a lot more efficient than your typical central split systems. Many mini splits boast high SEER ratings. (SEER is short for seasonal energy efficiency ratio, an industry standard for measuring the efficiency of air conditioners.) SEER for mini split systems can be impressive. The ratios usually range from 18 SEER all the way up to an amazing 42 SEER. With ratings like that, your future system will be able to reduce your energy bills significantly compared to other heating and cooling solutions.
Ductless mini split systems are exactly what their names would lead you to think they are: ductless. You don’t need ductwork for mini split systems. Instead, they use copper line sets to run the refrigerant to the indoor units. This allows you to place your air handler in the space where you want it and requires less maintenance than a duct system.
The lack of ducts makes these ventless air conditioner systems an especially smart choice for when installing ductwork would be too costly or unnecessary. Mini splits offer an easy workaround.
Mini splits are available to control anywhere from one to nine zones. The typical home will need four or five indoor air handlers. These air handlers are available in a variety of mounting options. Wall, and ceiling-mounts are some of the choices.
Have you ever wanted different rooms in your house set at different temperatures? Multi zone mini split systems allow you to keep each zone at a different temperature, giving you the power to control the temperatures throughout your house easily and exactly the way you want.
