Ductless mini splits can come in handy when trying to solve a number of comfort-related problems. They are a flexible solution that is often able to provide benefits that traditional forced-air systems with ductwork can’t. Whether you are trying to add comfort to a new room in your house or you have an existing room that just never gets comfortable, mini splits can help you stay comfortable and save money.
Ductless mini split systems consist of just a few different components, including up to four indoor air handlers, an outdoor compressor and a conduit that connects them. Conditioned air generated by the compressor travels through the conduit into your living spaces via the air handlers.
Each of the air handlers are controlled independently. This allows people in different areas to set different temperatures without having to be concerned with disturbing anyone else.
There is also no ductwork involved in a mini split system, meaning that none of the conditioned air gets lost. It all gets to its destination, making mini splits an efficient solution for delivering cool air to places in your home that your ductwork can’t reach.
Having mini splits allows you to control how much energy you use in these areas as well. When you leave a room, simply turn off its air handler to avoid paying to keep an unoccupied area comfortable. Many come with remote controls that make them even easier to turn on and off.
Ductless mini splits are a very flexible solution that can be modified to fit your needs. Once installed, the air handler can be placed on the floor, wall or ceiling, whichever works best for you.
Because ductless mini splits have so few components, their installation is quite simple. They only require a three-inch hole in the wall for the conduit to pass through.
