Ductless Mini-Split Systems
Ductless mini-split systems are a great alternative to duct heating and cooling. They are small and have flexible zoning, and are energy-efficient. They are a great choice for additions where additional duct-work is space-prohibitive and work well with other ductless systems such as space heaters or radiant panels.
Mini-Split systems consist of an outdoor condenser and indoor air handlers. The outdoor condenser uses outside air and heats or cools it. The handlers bring the air into the house and cool or heat the spaces according to their zoned thermostats.
Advantages of Ductless Mini-Split Systems
The largest advantage to ductless systems is their flexibility. Some systems can have as many as four indoor units (offering four coverage for four zones or rooms) attached to one outdoor unit. Each zone will have its own thermostat, which allows for flexible heating in different areas, which can help save you money on your energy bills.
Because ductless systems don’t have duct work, they don’t experience the energy loss typically associated with ducts, which can be up to 30% or energy usage. This saves energy and money.
