Most homeowners are informed about central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a kind of ductless heating and cooling. In place of giving conditioned air to the entire house through a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a lone room at a time. This delivers more direct temperature control, increasing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits are most similar to heat pumps in the way they run. Both kinds of equipment provide electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This involves using refrigerant to draw out heat from within a building and discharging that heat outside. Then, a reversing valve allows the system to run backward, heating your house in the winter by pulling heat from outdoor air and depositing it inside.
The largest difference between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t have to have ductwork. Instead, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which mounts directly to the wall or ceiling in the area you are looking to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line connect to an outdoor condensing unit through a narrow conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks similar to an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
More than one indoor unit can link to a single outdoor condenser, permitting you to heat and cool your entire residence with this system if wanted. This configuration also makes zoning practical, a very attractive feature that lets you determine when, where and how much you heat and cool distinct rooms.
