What is a Mini Split System?

By April 3, 2023April 29th, 2023No Comments

A mini split system, also known as a ductless mini split or ductless heat pump, is a type of HVAC system that provides heating and cooling without the need for ductwork.
It consists of two main components: an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air-handling units. The outdoor unit houses the compressor and condenser, while the indoor unit contains the evaporator and blower. The two units are connected by a small conduit that contains a power cable, refrigerant tubing, and a drain line.
Mini split systems are typically more energy-efficient than traditional HVAC systems because they don’t lose energy through ductwork. They also offer flexibility in terms of installation since they can be mounted on walls, ceilings, or floors and can be used to cool or heat individual rooms or zones in a building. They are often used in homes or buildings without existing ductwork or as a supplemental cooling and heating system.
