Mini Splits

Are HVAC Mini Splits right for my home?

A mini-split system is a ductless air conditioner that can cool and heat a home. It offers zone-control with each indoor unit having a different temperature setting.

Mini-splits can be two to four times more efficient andcan blow cool air from separate air handlers, providing zone-control. There are single-zone and multi-zone setups available.

The indoor units can be wall-mounted or suspended. Mini-splits provide individual control of each indoor area for customized temperature settings. They are more efficient than ducted HVAC systems and can save on energy costs.

Mini-splits can also heat a home, eliminating the need for a separate furnace. Each indoor unit has its own replaceable air filter and dehumidification capabilities.

The downside to mini splits is the upfront costs of installing a the system can be high, and electrical work may be required. Portable units and window units are cheaper alternatives but less energy efficient. The number of mini-splits needed depends on the size and needs of each zone.

Properly sized indoor units are more efficient than larger units meant to cover multiple rooms. Mini-split systems have two main components: an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The noise levels of mini-split units vary depending on capacity, with indoor units having decibel levels between 20-49 and outdoor units between 45-60. HVAC contractors have advantages over DIY installation, and manufacturers offer warranties for equipment installed by licensed HVAC technicians. DIY installation requires technical skills and knowledge. Electrical requirements for mini-split systems vary, with smaller units sometimes only requiring 110-115 volts.
