What you Need to Know About Installing a Ductless Mini-Split System
What is a Ductless Mini-Split System?
A ductless mini-split system is a 2-in-1 heating and cooling system that consists of an outdoor and indoor unit so that it can introduce clean and conditioned air directly into an area (a room or zone). Unlike a traditional system, the mini-split works without forcing heated or cooled air through a duct making it ideal for smaller homes, offices, and studios.
Installing a Ductless Mini-Split System
There are a few things you should be aware of when installing a ductless mini-split in your home. If your home already has a different type of heating system, a mini-split may not be the best option for you. Mini-splits are often a good choice for small spaces, room additions, and homes without ducts. However, if you do already have a heating installation with a duct, a standard heat pump could be an option for you.
Though the term heat pump often refers to a ductless mini-split, the system design works with the duality of heating and cooling. So if you invest in one of these systems, you should be aware of the yearly maintenance and the cost associated with it.
Because these systems are much more delicate than traditional home heating systems, you’ll want to have a professional come out to ensure that you have the appropriate setup. As with any HVAC installation or repair, a professional can help you select a mini-split system with the proper capacity for your home.
Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split System
