A ductless mini split is a type of heating and cooling system that does not require ductwork to distribute conditioned air throughout a building. Instead, it uses a small, outdoor unit and one or more indoor air-handling units, which are mounted on walls or ceilings in individual rooms.
Ductless mini splits work by using a refrigerant to absorb and release heat as it cycles through the system. In the winter, the system extracts heat from the outside air and brings it indoors to provide warmth, while in the summer, it removes heat from indoor air and expels it outside to provide cooling.
One of the main benefits of ductless mini splits is that they are highly efficient and can save homeowners money on their energy bills. Since they don’t require ductwork, they don’t suffer from the energy losses that can occur when air moves through leaky or poorly insulated ducts.
Ductless mini splits are also easy to install and can be a good option for homes or buildings that don’t have existing ductwork. They offer flexibility in terms of zoning, allowing homeowners to heat or cool individual rooms or zones rather than the entire house, which can also result in energy savings.
