The majority of homeowners are most familiar with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a form of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than delivering conditioned air to the total home with a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a lone room at a time. This allows more targeted temperature control, improving comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most similar to heat pumps in the way they run. Both kinds of equipment provide electric cooling, similar to an air conditioner. This involves using refrigerant to extract heat from inside a building and issuing that warm air outside. Then, a reversing valve permits the system to operate backward, adding warmth to your house in the winter by pulling heat from outdoor air and bringing it inside.
The main contrast between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t have to have ductwork. Alternatively, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which mounts directly to 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 narrow conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can connect to one outdoor condenser, permitting you to heat and cool your entire residence with this system if if you want. This configuration also makes zoning practical, a very desirable feature that permits you to customize when, where and how much you heat and cool individual rooms.
