Specialized Mechanical takes pride in offering a comprehensive selection of products so you can have access to every option available that may suit your needs. Ductless mini splits are an alternate style of AC system that differ from traditional split-unit systems in several ways. The removal of ductwork offers a system that is efficient in both terms of space and energy. Offering more precise temperature control and energy savings, ductless mini-split systems are a strong contender for one of the most versatile AC options on the market.
Depending on the situation, a ductless mini-split system could save you money and energy, all while giving you more precise control of your structure’s climate in the process!
Ductless mini splits are an energy-efficient cooling system that consist of an outdoor condenser and one — or a few — indoor air-handlers/evaporators. Unlike a traditional split-unit air conditioner system that uses a single air handler to distribute cooled air around the structure via ductwork, a ductless mini-split uses individual air handlers in each room to remove the need for ductwork entirely.
Aside from the removal of ductwork, these systems operate very similarly to traditional split-unit systems. Here is an overview of how ductless mini-split systems work:
As you can see, ductless mini-splits operate the same as traditional units, minus the ductwork. This change in design provides a variety of pros and cons depending on your circumstance.
Ductless mini-split systems offer a variety of benefits over other methods of air cooling. The removal of ductwork eliminates points of failure that greatly increase efficiency. Faults in your ductwork can account for up to 30% of your home’s energy consumption! The removal of ductwork eliminates this issue entirely and saves you from future costs associated with damages and maintenance to ductwork in the future.
Without ductwork, it’s also much easier to install a ductless mini-split. The removal of ductwork frees up a lot of space where ductwork would traditionally be installed. The indoor air-handler units also come in a variety of styles and mount options to suit any design need.
One of the only disadvantages to a ductless mini-split is the initial cost. While they can be more expensive than traditional units, that upfront cost is generally recuperated down the road by the savings you’ll earn on energy.
Here’s a rundown of the advantages of ductless mini-splits:
