The majority of homeowners are acquainted with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a type of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than delivering conditioned air to the full home through a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This delivers more advanced temperature control, improving comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most similar to heat pumps in the way they operate. Both kinds of equipment offer electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This uses refrigerant to extract heat from within a building and discharging that warm air outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to run backward, adding warmth to your home in the winter by removing heat from outdoor air and adding it inside.
The largest contrast between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t need ductwork. Alternatively, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which fits directly on the wall or ceiling in the space you are looking to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line join to an outdoor condensing unit through a little conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks similar to an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can work off of an individual outdoor condenser, permitting you to heat and cool your total home with this system if if you want. This arrangement also makes zoning practical, a very attractive feature that lets you choose when, where and how much you heat and cool individual spaces.
