Most homeowners are acquainted with central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a kind of ductless heating and cooling. In place of delivering conditioned air to the full home via a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a single room at a time. This provides 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 deliver electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This involves using refrigerant to remove heat from within a building and discharging that warmth outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to run backward, heating your house in the winter by removing heat from outdoor air and depositing 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 fits directly on the wall or ceiling in the space you wish to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line link to an outdoor condensing unit through a little conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks similar to an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can connect to one outdoor condenser, enabling you to heat and cool your total house with this system if if you want. This configuration also makes zoning practical, a very attractive feature that allows you to customize when, where and how much you heat and cool individual spaces.
