How Does Ductless Mini-Splits Work?
When it comes to ductless units, there are two components that make it up. First, you have your outdoor condenser unit, which will be located outside of the home. Inside, you will have the indoor air handling unit, which is located on a wall mounted high up to avoid being seen. This copper refrigerant tubing is connected to both units, and an electrical line runs through the walls. When the mini-splits are used for air conditioning, it uses refrigerant cooling to transfer heat from indoors to outdoors. Then, it will take heat located inside your house and convert it to cool air. This cool air will then come back into the home through the air handling unit and vice versa. As mentioned earlier, ductless mini-splits are reversible. So, when it’s time to choose to heat, these units can adjust accordingly. Ductless mini-splits work in a constant cycle to bring you cooling or heating depending on the day.
What Types of Units are Installed?
There are many different configurations with ductless mini-splits. Most units can be reversed into heat pumps which are a huge benefactor for those struggling with heat efficiency. One ductless mini-split can heat an entire room or area within your home. Meanwhile, multi-units can be installed in different rooms to provide equal heating or cooling. Due to flexible installation, ductless mini-splits can come in different varieties. Ceiling cassettes are a great option for homeowners who have limited space. Fan coils are another option, which is typically installed in the ceiling and generate air through its exposed grill. For those of you who like adjusting temperature frequently, ductless mini-splits might be the right product for you. Homeowners have the ability to either cool or heat a room based on the weather. This means you’ll have complete control over your system.
The Difference with Mini-Splits
Ductless mini-splits are especially great since there is no required ductwork. When mini-splits are installed, you’ll immediately see a decrease in your utility bill. Removing ductwork and choosing mini-split units means you might only lose up to 5% on your cooling or heating. Compare that to almost 40% on lost heating or cooling with regular ductwork, and you instantly understand the difference. Most ductless models have the highest efficiency rating out of any other air conditioning or heating system unit. And since mini-splits are mounted high up on walls, you’ll have the opportunity to use your window for once if you’re used to inserting air conditioners in your windows once the warm season arrives. You will finally have an unobstructed view from your window, making mini-splits seem like an even greater investment. And when the cold weather decides to creep in again, no need to remove your ductless mini-split system. Just reverse the system so that warm heat is being blown into your home. That way, you won’t have to go back and forth between two different heating and cooling systems. Instead, all you need your ductless mini-split which you can adjust with easy control.
