What Are the Advantages of a Ductless Mini Split for Heating?

How do Ductless Mini-Splits Work?

Ductless mini split heat pumps are a great way to heat your home efficiently. They consist of an outdoor compressor/condenser unit and several indoor air handling units connected to the outdoor unit. The air is heated by the compressor and returned to the air handling unit to disperse into rooms.

Each room or area can contain an indoor air handling unit, which can be controlled separately from the others using a remote control. This makes it an ideal solution for homes with multiple rooms that may not need to be heated, allowing you to control where your heated air is being sent.

Not only is this system efficient, but it’s also convenient and easy to use. So if you’re looking for an excellent way to heat your home, consider a ductless mini split heat pump over a traditional heating system.

Advantages of a Ductless Mini Split System
Individualized Room Heating

Mini-split systems give homeowners multiple options regarding where the heated air will be dispersed. Compressors can manage several indoor air handlers, which means several different zones can be individually controlled. Every treatment zone has its own thermostat, meaning you only have to heat spaces in use. You cannot do this with a traditional heating system like a furnace or boiler.

Simple Installation and Maintenance

Ductless mini-split systems are easy to install, repair and tune up because of their basic design and lack of prep work. You only need to make a 3-inch hole in the wall for the conduit that joins the interior and exterior units. If you want, you can position the outdoor compressor as far as 50 feet from where the air handler will be located. This allows for more discreet placement.

Save on Energy Bills

Because mini-split systems have no ductwork, they do not suffer the same energy losses as standard air heating systems like a furnace. If the ducts or mini split system were improperly installed, the energy loss could be more significant. This is why working with a qualified team of professionals is crucial. If improperly installed, you are setting up your home for failure. It will lose heat through leaks, cracks, or gaps where the mini-split was installed.

Why Make the Switch from a Traditional Heating System

While it’s clear that installing a mini split heat pump system in your home comes with many advantages, it can be tough to commit to something unfamiliar. Fortunately, the team at A-1 Mechanical has helped homeowners upgrade their heating systems for years – so we can find the perfect solution for your home.

Mini split heat pumps offer individualized temperature control, meaning you get to choose which rooms receive heat. That’s a level of customization that a boiler or furnace can’t match. If you want your family to be comfortable year-round while also improving your home’s energy efficiency, a mini split heat pump system is the way to go.
