Most homeowners are most familiar with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a form of ductless heating and cooling. In place of delivering conditioned air to the complete residence through a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a lone room at a time. This delivers more targeted temperature control, enhancing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most similar to heat pumps in the way they cool. Both models of equipment provide electric cooling, similar to an air conditioner. This uses refrigerant to remove heat from in a building and exhausting that warmth outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to work backward, adding warmth to your home in the winter by extracting heat from outdoor air and adding it inside.
The main contrast between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t have to have ductwork. As an alternative, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which fits directly on the wall or ceiling in the room you wish to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line link to an outdoor condensing unit through a small conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks similar to an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can work off of one outdoor condenser, allowing you to heat and cool your full house with this system if if you want. This set-up also makes zoning practical, an extremely attractive feature that lets you choose when, where and how much you heat and cool individual rooms.
