Ductless mini-splits are energy-efficient HVAC options that are growing in popularity for several reasons. First off, these units help to properly heat and cool your home, while also only heating or cooling the parts of the home you designate. This makes this one of the most efficient ways to heat or cool your home. Secondly, these units are relatively fast and affordable to install.

Ductless mini splits are a great solution for cooling a specific room like a sunroom or a room over the garage or as a complement to your current air conditioning system to make all the rooms in your home a consistent temperature.

How Do Ductless Mini Splits Work?

Ductless mini splits involve placing indoor air handling units on the walls in various rooms across your home. Each unit is connected to a coil system with an outdoor compressor. When you turn a specific unit on, that unit pulls air from that specific room into the unit, where the air is cooled through the coil system connected to the outdoor compressor. That coil system then loops that heated or cooled air back through the ductless mini-split unit, where it is blown back into the home.

A ductless system is better than an inefficient window unit because they are more secure, provides better cooling power, and is less noisy. When connected to a heat pump, ductless systems can also provide heat to a room. Talk to the HVAC services specialists at Heartland to see if ductless systems would be a good fit for your temperature control needs.



What Are The Benefits Of Installing A Ductless Mini-Split HVAC System?

Ductless mini-split HVAC systems are extremely beneficial, which is why they are gaining in popularity. If your home needs a new heating or cooling system, you may find yourself wondering if a mini-split HVAC system is right for you. Learning the benefits of installing one of these systems can help you decide. Some of the most common benefits of this type of system include:

No Need For Ductwork

If your home is not already set up for ductwork, having ductwork installed can be costly and time-consuming. Ductwork also needs to be regularly cleaned and cared for. If you have a new addition added to your home and want it to be heated and cooled like the rest of the house, you will need ductwork installed, but also your current HVAC systems might not be able to heat and cool your entire house with the new space added. Instead of installing a whole new furnace or air conditioner system, a mini-split would be a much more affordable option.

Zoned Heating and Cooling

One of the biggest benefits associated with a ductless mini-split HVAC system is that you are able to get zoned heating and cooling. Each zone is controlled independently with its own thermostat. This allows you to heat or cool a room to each individual’s preferences. For example, in rooms that are rarely used in the winter, you can lower the temperature to save money. 

Zero Energy Loss

Ductless mini-split systems also help to decrease energy loss. A lot of energy is lost as air travels through ductwork. On top of that, energy is lost when your system heats rooms or spaces no one is currently occupying. You can put an end to energy loss and save money by installing one of these heating and cooling devices. 

Energy Efficient

More and more people are becoming aware of the choices they make and how it impacts the environment. Being as energy efficient as possible helps to reduce your energy costs, but also helps to reduce your carbon footprint. Ductless mini-split systems are energy efficient, which can save you money and help protect the environment. 

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Ducts are often filled with dust and other debris. As air travels through these dirty ducts, that dust then travels into your home. Mini split systems do not use a duct system, which helps to reduce the amount of dust, pollen and pollutants in your home. This is ideal for those with breathing issues, such as asthma, or those with severe allergies. 

No Major Renovations Are Necessary

The final benefit associated with ductless mini-split services is that no major renovations are necessary to install this type of system. The system can be installed quickly and affordably.
