How Ductless Mini Splits Work

The main difference between ductless mini splits and traditional, split central air conditioners, as you’ve probably guessed, is the fact that ductless mini splits do not require air ducts in order to circulate conditioned air throughout the house. Instead, wall-mounted blowers are used. Each blower is responsible for distributing conditioned air into the space in which it is installed. These blowers are all controlled independently of one another, with a thermostat corresponding to each. The blowers connect to a single outdoor unit, up to four per unit, generally, via  a simple conduit. Within this conduit one will find the power and refrigerant lines, along with any necessary drainage lines.

Why Use a Ductless Mini Split?

The ways in which using a ductless mini split can benefit you are many. Because the wall-mounted blowers are controlled independently of one another, you can maintain different temperatures in different areas of the home. Plus, you won’t have to worry about the installation of bulky ductwork, nor will you encounter issues with energy efficiency or indoor air quality due to compromised ductwork. Finally, ductless mini splits can utilize heat pump technology, meaning that you can use this type of system to both heat and cool your home. Contact us to learn more.
