Many homeowners are acquainted with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a type of ductless heating and cooling. Instead of delivering conditioned air to the total home via a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This provides more targeted temperature control, increasing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits most closely resemble heat pumps in the way they operate. Both models of equipment deliver electric cooling, similar to an air conditioner. This requires using refrigerant to remove heat from inside a building and discharging that heat outside. Then, a reversing valve permits the system to work backward, warming your house in the winter by removing heat from outdoor air and bringing it inside.
The largest distinction between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t require ductwork. Instead, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which mounts directly to the wall or ceiling in the area 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.
More than one indoor unit can work off of one outdoor condenser, permitting you to heat and cool your complete house with this system if wanted. This set-up also makes zoning practical, a very desirable feature that allows you to choose when, where and how much you heat and cool specific areas.
