How Does a Ductless Mini-Split Work?

What you should first know about ductless mini-split systems is, as their name suggests, they don’t require the use of ductwork like traditional heating and cooling units. Mini-splits are indoor air handlers that are connected to an outdoor condenser/compressor unit like a heat pump or an air conditioner. When connected to an air conditioner a mini split will only be able to cool a room, but when connected to a heat pump they can provide both heating and cooling services. Up to 5 indoor air handling units can be connected to one compressor and mounted on the walls or ceilings of rooms depending on the layout of your home.

Mini-splits operate by moving heat in and out of your home. During warmer weather, the refrigerant absorbs heat energy from your Annapolis, MD area home and transfers it to the compressor where the air is released outside. The cool refrigerant then cools the room If the mini-split is connected to a heat pump, the system can work in reverse. The heat pump can extract warmth from the outside air and use refrigerant to transfer it inside.

Common Applications for Ductless Mini-Splits

Ductless mini-splits can be used in a variety of ways depending on what your home comfort needs include. Some of those most common applications are:

  • Bonus rooms over garages and sunrooms that are difficult to keep comfortable.
  • New home additions without connecting the system to the existing ductwork.
  • Basements, attics, and garages that don’t have ductwork or need supplemental heating and cooling.
  • Older homes without ductwork or outdated and inefficient ductwork.
  • The entire home.

The Benefits of Installing a Ductless Mini-Split

Choosing to buy a new HVAC system is a big financial decision. If you’re deciding whether ductless mini-split installation is right for your Annapolis, MD area home, consider the following benefits:

Energy Efficient

Ductless mini-splits are extremely energy efficient because of the absence of ductwork, which can lose 20-30% of conditioned air through duct leaks. Without ductwork, a mini-split can reduce monthly energy bills and decrease system wear and tear.

Increased Comfort

At the end of the day, the comfort of you and your family members is of utmost importance. If you’re struggling to keep comfortable in a new home addition, basement, or garage, installation of a ductless system can significantly improve comfort in these areas.

Zoned Heating and Cooling

Although ductless systems are often used to heat and cool just one area of a home, they can also be used to provide comfort to your entire home. Each indoor air handling comes equipped with its own thermostat to create temperature zones. This allows family members to set the temperature to their liking in their rooms, and can also save on energy costs by not heating or cooling rooms that are rarely used.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Each indoor air handling unit is equipped with its own air filter for improved air filtration in each zone. The absence of ductwork can also improve air quality, as ducts are often magnets for attracting dirt, debris, allergens, and other contaminants that can eventually make their way into your living areas.

Easy Installation

Unlike traditional central air conditioning systems, ductless mini splits don’t require extensive ductwork installation. They are easy to install and can often be up and running in just a few hours.
