Learn About Ductless Mini Splits for Your Home

December 15, 2015

Heat gain/loss in the typical home can make it very difficult to maintain comfortable temperatures in every room. If your ductwork delivers uneven airflow, the comfort and efficiency problems are compounded. A ductless mini split can solve these issues and deliver point-of-use zoned comfort anywhere you need it. Here's how.

Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless mini split heat pumps use point-of-use air handlers to heat and cool practically any room of your home without modifying or installing air ducts. The sleek air handler is typically mounted high on a wall or to the ceiling. You may also opt for a recessed cassette or a concealed configuration, which hides the air handler in wall, ceiling or floor cavities.The outdoor unit is substantially smaller than a conventional central air system. It may be mounted to a small concrete pad, paver stones, your home's exterior wall or on a balcony or rooftop. The refrigerant lines, power cable and condensate drainage or housed in an insulated conduit, which spans walls or other concealed areas in your home.

Ductless Solutions
Ductless mini splits are suitable for so many air conditioning requirements because that's exactly what they were designed for. Whether you need to heat and cool a problem area, a guest room, outbuilding, bonus room or retrofitted attic or basement, your new ductless system has the versatility to meet and exceed your needs and expectations.

Superior Efficiency and Comfort
Ductless mini splits employ advanced technologies to deliver energy-efficient heating and cooling. Sophisticated sensors located at the indoor air handlers constantly scan zone temperatures top to bottom and adjust heating or cooling automatically. This is made possible by inverter-driven compressors and electronic expansion valves that deliver quiet comfort to one degree of your setting. Moreover, each indoor air handler is essentially a zoning system. If only the ductless system zone is occupied in your home, you don't need your central system.
