Most homeowners are acquainted with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a form of ductless heating and cooling. Rather than providing conditioned air to the full house through a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This allows more direct temperature control, improving comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most similar to heat pumps in the way they cool. Both kinds of equipment offer electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This requires using refrigerant to extract heat from within a building and discharging that warmth outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to operate backward, warming your residence in the winter by removing heat from outdoor air and bringing 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 is installed on the wall or ceiling in the space you are looking to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line connect to an outdoor condensing unit through a little conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can link to a single outdoor condenser, enabling you to heat and cool your total residence with this system if desired. This set-up also makes zoning practical, an extremely attractive feature that permits you to customize when, where and how much you heat and cool individual spaces.
