Benefits to Choosing More Complicated & Specialized Mini Splits
We preach the benefits of ductless mini splits to all our customers, here at ComfortUp, as they are an optimal heating and cooling option for all situations. They have recently seen an increase in popularity in the United States, and for good reason; they offer countless benefits and advantages over other options such as central HVAC systems.
For example, their lack of ductwork means they are very efficient and waste little to no energy during use. This leads to noticeable savings on your energy bill. They are also versatile, as they have both heating and cooling capabilities. Additionally, they act as air purifiers, filters, and dehumidifiers to increase the air quality in your home.
While there are conventional and general ductless mini splits available, there are several specific models with different features, designs, and specifications. At ComfortUp, we carry many specific and more complicated ductless mini splits such as ceiling cassettes, slim duct units, concealed mount units, and universal floor/ceiling mounts. Read below to learn more, and then give us a call at 1-855-337-0001 to speak with a trained product specialist.
Ceiling cassette mini splits are named for their resemblance to cassette tapes. With a ceiling cassette, air is transferred from an outdoor compressor to the cassette-lookalike indoor air handling unit, and then dispersed throughout the room. Many prefer cassette models because they are very inconspicuous and hardly noticeable because of their location on the ceiling. There are even recessed models available, which are virtually flat against the ceiling. Therefore, they do not detract from the room’s aesthetic like other air conditioners. We have a variety of ceiling cassette mini splits to choose from at ComfortUp, such as the GREE U-Match UMAT18HP230V1AC-S.
Slim Duct Mini Splits
Slim duct mini splits are optimal for tight spaces where a normal-sized mini split does not fit. In fact, many of the indoor slim ducts weigh less than one pound. Like ceiling cassettes, they are very inconspicuous and hardly noticeable when installed and in use. They are also so quiet that you’ll have no idea they are even running. ComfortUp sells several slim duct models, such as the Mitsubishi Ductless MXZ Mr. Slim.
Concealed Mount Mini Splits
Concealed mount mini splits are perfect for commercial or residential properties that are tight on wall space. They have an easy installation process and sit in ceilings in rooms or closets. Their concealed installation coupled with silent operation makes them virtually unnoticeable during operation. However, concealed ducts must be installed in a conditioned space to operate effectively. ComfortUp carries many concealed mini splits, such as the GREE U-Match.
Universal Floor/Ceiling Mount Options
Ductless mini splits are known for their versatility, as certain models can be suspended from the ceiling or rest on the floor. Like other models, these are optimal in buildings lacking wall space. Many commercial properties such as restaurants and offices opt for universal floor/ceiling mounted ductless mini splits. The GREE Multi21+ Dual-Zone Universal Floor/Ceiling is one of many floor/ceiling mounts carried by ComfortUp.
Most, if not all, of these options are available in single or multi zone systems. A single-zone system consists of one outdoor compressor connected to one indoor ductless mini split. This allows you to control the temperature in the room or “zone” where the indoor unit is physically located. A multi-zone system consists of one outdoor unit connected to multiple indoor units.
Some systems can have up to eight ductless mini splits connected to the same outdoor unit. A multi-zone system allows you to control the temperature in each zone individually without affecting the others. These are ideal for commercial or residential properties with different rooms or levels, and they make thermostat wars a thing of the past.
Now that you’ve read about the different types of ductless mini splits and their countless benefits, you’re ready to purchase one for yourself! Call ComfortUp at 1-855-337-0001 or contact us online to speak with a trained product specialist. We can find the perfect system that meets your exact needs.
However, we advise against installing your new ductless mini split yourself. In many cases, self-installation leads to countless problems with the performance and efficiency of the system. It can also void the warranty, which leads to paying out of pocket for costly repairs and even replacement, should something go awry. Reach out to a professional HVAC technician in your area for all your installation and maintenance needs.
