What is a Ductless Mini-Split Heating & Cooling System & How Does it Work?

Ductless mini-splits, also known as, “mini-splits” and zoned HVAC, are a type of heating and cooling system that does not rely on air ducts to condition and distribute air. Ductless mini-split systems are made up of two main components: the indoor air handling unit and the outdoor compressor/condenser.

Often times, the indoor unit is suspended from the ceiling or mounted high on the wall. This unit sends conditioned air directly into your living space and it is directly connected to an outdoor compressor through a refrigerant line. WM Henderson provides replacement and installation services for mini-split heating and cooling systems.

Traditional heat pumps and ductless mini-splits operate similarly by connecting an indoor air-handling unit to an outdoor compressor or condenser. However, unlike a heat pump, the indoor air handler can be installed directly into the room instead of needing the extra ductwork system to transfer conditioned air into the rooms of your home.

Traditional air conditioner units work by removing heat from your space and transferring the heat to your outdoor condenser unit. A hump pump works in an opposite manner. It takes the heat from the outdoor environment and transfers it indoors. If you need assistance installing a ductless mini-split heat pump, give our team a call by phone at (484) 206-8594.

Because each unit has its own thermostat, you can control the spaces you are occupying, saving money and energy in the spaces that are not.

-Easy Installation – only requires a 3-inch hole in the wall for the conduit

-Separate thermostat controls provide flexibility for your space

Debunking the Myths

There’s no surprise that with any technology, there is an opinion of what is best for your home. In order for ductless mini-split heat pumps to work at their maximum efficiency, they need to be used properly and under the right conditions. Like anything, there are many misconceptions about ductless and mini-split heat pumps.

More Expensive

Electric heat pumps are actually known to save you money on your annual energy cost. The amount of money saved depends on factors such as efficiency, condition, and placement of the equipment.

Mini-Split Heat Pumps Distribute Bacteria

Ductless mini-split heating and air systems actually provide better air quality and remove more allergens from the conditioned air than traditional systems. They are equipped with filter systems as well as self-cleaning functions so that bacteria never has the chance to settle.

Operating All Year Reduces Life Cycle

As long as your ductless mini-split heating and cooling system is properly maintained and serviced, ductless heat pumps can have the same life span as any traditional HVAC system. Just as you would with any major appliance, your system should be serviced regularly to ensure longevity.

Mini-Split Heat Pumps Don’t Work in Cold Climates

Ductless heat pumps offer higher efficiency ratings that boiler-based systems and cost less to operate. They maximize the amount of heat generated from the energy consumed, so it is efficient as a heater and an air conditioner.
