Frequently Asked Questions
What is a ductless mini-split system?
A ductless mini-split system is like a central AC system, but it does not require any ductwork. Each indoor unit will service a single room or area, and each unit uses a separate fan and evaporator coil. Give us a call today to see if a ductless mini-split system is a good option for your home!
How does a ductless mini-split system work?
A ductless mini-split system works on the same principles as larger HVAC systems. Instead of a central indoor unit connected by long lengths of ductwork transporting warm and cool air back and forth though, a mini-split system places small units directly in each room, which pull in warm air and send it back out as cold air.
What is the difference between single zone and multi-zone?
Mini-splits are a flexible solution for many homes, especially those that do not already have ducting. Some areas where you may see mini-splits in action are in bedrooms, living rooms, garages, finished basements, guest rooms, mancaves, or home additions.
Where can mini-splits be installed?
The biggest advantage of ductless mini-split systems over traditional central air options is ease of installation. For a home without existing ductwork, the installation of it can be an expensive and complicated endeavor. The are many other advantages as well, including: integrated zoning with flexible coverage, extremely energy efficient, compact designs, more affordable than expanding a current HVAC system, and can be easily installed in detached exterior buildings.
What are the benefits of a ductless mini-split system?
Yes, they sure can. You can use a ductless mini-split system to cool one room or your entire house. The ability to cool a whole house is made possible by connecting the outdoor condenser to multiple indoor units – this is referred to a multi-zone mini-split system.
Can a mini-splits cool my whole house?
A single zone system refers to one mini-split indoor unit. A multi-zone system consists of two or more indoor units.
