Most homeowners are informed about central air conditioners.
Mini-split systems are a type of ductless heating and cooling. Instead of providing conditioned air to the complete residence via a network of air ducts, they heat and cool a lone room at a time. This provides more targeted temperature control, increasing comfort and energy efficiency.
Mini-splits most closely resemble heat pumps in the way they cool. Both models of equipment deliver electric cooling, the same as an air conditioner. This uses refrigerant to remove heat from in a building and issuing that heat outside. Then, a reversing valve enables the system to operate backward, warming your residence in the winter by removing heat from outdoor air and depositing it inside.
The biggest distinction between mini-splits and heat pumps is that mini-split systems don’t need ductwork. Alternatively, the indoor unit has a built-in air handler, which mounts directly to the wall or ceiling in the space you are looking to heat and cool. Copper tubes, wiring and a condensate drain line join to an outdoor condensing unit through a little conduit in the wall. This exterior component looks like an air conditioner or heat pump condenser.
Multiple indoor units can connect to one outdoor condenser, allowing you to heat and cool your full residence with this system if desired. This configuration also makes zoning feasible, a highly popular feature that lets you determine when, where and how much you heat and cool individual areas.
