Zoned Temperature Control
When you install a ductless mini-split heat pump, you’re providing a specific zone in your home independent climate control. This offers zone occupants the advantage of personalized temperature control that wont’ affect other areas in the home. If desired, you can also condition the ductless system zone as needed to save energy.
Ductless mini-splits only have four primary components:
- Outside: A compact compressor/condenser cabinet is located outside your home, and is simply mounted to your home or on another solid surface.
- Inside: A low-profile indoor air-handling unit (AHU) supplies conditioned airflow, and may be mounted, recessed or concealed on, within or behind a wall, ceiling or floor.
- Piping: A thin conduit with power supply, refrigerant lines and drainage connects indoor and outdoor components.
- Controls: A wireless hand-held device offers easy setting adjustments.
Depending on your selected ductless model, the conduit may extend in excess of 100 feet from the outdoor cabinet to the indoor AHU. You have great freedom to install the indoor AHU and outdoor cabinet anywhere you please, as long as the extensive conduit can reach it.
Consider Return on Investment
Ductless mini-split heat pumps offer exceptional efficiency, and many models are Energy Star qualified. If you plan on using your new ductless system frequently, you’ll enjoy a nice return on investment (ROI) with years of energy savings.
However, if your ductless system will only be used occasionally, such as in a guest room, pool house or guest house, you may consider other options if installation costs are a factor. If you do decide to go ductless, make sure your system is professionally sized and installed.
