Mini split systems are an innovative and efficient way to regulate the temperature in your home. Utilizing the latest heat pump technology, mini split systems offer both heating and cooling capabilities for your space. One of the most popular types of mini split systems is called a ductless mini split. These systems can save you money in comparison to traditional air conditioning and heating units that require ductwork. They are a great option for bedrooms, home offices, finished attics, garages, and even additions.
A split system is a heating and air conditioning system that consists of two main components: an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, while the outdoor unit rejects the heat absorbed by the indoor unit. This cycle is repeated until the set temperature is reached. Despite the indoor and outdoor units being located in different locations, they operate as one system by continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor through interconnected, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, which are commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.
Mini split systems range in size from as small as small as 6,000 Btus per hour, comparable to a small window AC unit, for individual room use, up to 4 and 5 ton capacities for “Room by Room” (also known as “Zoning”) and whole house conditioning. The nearly universal design of mini split systems makes them highly efficient, and in many cases, eligible for utility company rebates. They offer attractive operating efficiencies, heat and cool providing year-round comfort, and are solar friendly, making them an ideal complement to “Net Zero Energy” homes or any home using renewable power.
One of the most significant advantages of mini split systems is their low carbon footprint. These systems are 100% electric, which means they produce zero operating emissions of any kind. Additionally, mini split manufacturers offer systems capable of room-by-room “zoning.” This allows for the peak demands of a room to be accounted for based on the construction type, exposure orientation, and usage. Mini splits are typically DC inverter driven, meaning they have a variable speed compressor that modulates in proportion to instantaneous demand. Unlike conventional cooling systems that operate with an on-off strategy, mini split systems are much more efficient.
Another benefit of mini split systems is their flexibility in terms of location. The outdoor units of mini split systems are compact and can be located far away from noise-sensitive areas. This makes them perfect for additions and remodels where access to the current HVAC system is difficult to access. Modern mini split systems are also incredibly quiet, so they won’t disturb your peace and quiet while they work to keep you comfortable.
In summary, mini split systems offer several advantages over traditional air conditioning and heating units. They are highly efficient, solar-friendly, have a low carbon footprint, and offer room-by-room zoning capabilities. They are also incredibly flexible in terms of location and are remarkably quiet. So if you are looking for a more efficient and innovative way to regulate the temperature in your home, mini split systems are an excellent choice to consider.
