What Are Mini Splits?

A mini-split system heats and cools your home in a non-traditional way. This system includes an indoor unit, an outdoor unit (condenser), and a series of lines connecting the two. These are the drain, refrigerant, and electric lines. The most notable thing about this type of heating and cooling technology is that the system doesn’t require ductwork. This makes it useful in many types of homes.

Why Are Mini Splits a Great Option to Use During Cold Weather?

Mini-splits are a great option to use during the cold weather months because they are energy efficient. With a traditional heating system, a lot of warm air can be lost as it travels through the air ducts to various rooms. This system doesn’t need ductwork, so it avoids that energy loss.

Another reason why this technology is a great option is that having a mini split installation is possible in every room or in various zones within a home. This allows a comfortable level of warm air to flow throughout the house. The number and arrangement of your mini-split units depend on the specific layout of your home. The indoor mini-split unit is small. Generally, it can be installed on a wall, near the ceiling. Consequently, it doesn’t take up much space in a room.

There’s a thermostat on each unit. This means family members in one room can adjust their unit’s thermostat to suit their preference for a cool temperature. Alternatively, someone in the room next door can set the thermostat to maintain a warmer temperature. This type of heating and cooling system allows you plenty of options.

Installing ductwork can be expensive and time-consuming. This installation project can be avoided by going with a mini-split system for your home. The air quality in a home with mini splits can be better than one with a traditional heating and cooling system. The air ducts in a home can take on an accumulation of dust, dirt, and even mold. However, the air filtration inside a mini-split unit helps to improve air quality as it warms or cools a home.

How Do Mini Splits Heat Your Space?

During the cold weather season, the heat pump absorbs warm air from the atmosphere. The warm air transfers to the refrigerant in the heat pump, becoming even warmer. Then, the warm air travels inside the home to the indoor units of the mini-split system. A mini-split system cools a home during the summer months by taking the warm air from inside a home and delivering it outside.
