Here’s How a Ductless Mini Split Keeps You Warm (and Cool!)

Are you tired of getting through the colder seasons with an inefficient and inexpensive portable heater or wall unit? Are you looking for a way to get warmth throughout your home, even if you don’t have a ventilation system running throughout your home? We’ve got the solution for you.

Ductless mini split systems are becoming more and more common in the U.S. A ductless mini split is a system of indoor blower modules mounted up high on walls or ceilings, each connected to the outdoor compressor unit.

You don’t need a ventilation system because air blows directly out from the units mounted on the wall. And the same system works for both heating and cooling. How does this work?

  • A refrigerant line connects the indoor blower units to the outside condenser coil/compressor unit. Technicians only need to drill a small hole in the wall to feed this through.
  • Thermostats are placed in each zone that has a blower mounted on the wall, and you can also have a central thermostat to control all the blower units at once (usually up to 4 per outside unit).
  • When you set the thermostat for cooling, refrigerant absorbs heat from the air in the home, which starts a thermodynamic process that cools a coil in the indoor blower unit. Air blows over this coil and into the home, and heat is released outdoors when refrigerant condenses.
  • When you set the thermostat to heating mode, the process reverses. Heat is absorbed from the air outdoors, and refrigerant transfers this heat inside.
  • Ductless heat pumps are able to absorb heat for heating even as temperatures approach freezing outdoors.
  • Ductless heat pumps are more efficient than most electric heaters because they move heat instead of generating heat. You can save a lot of money each year!
