Ductless Mini Splits
A standard HVAC system uses metal ducts to shuttle treated air from the furnace or air conditioner to each room. Ductless mini splits do not require ductwork, making them a more affordable installation, especially for rooms that are new add-ons or conversions. Ductless mini split services throughout Crawfordsville, Danville, and Greencastle are the perfect way to ensure that rooms without any existing ductwork stay safe and comfortable all year long.
What Are Ductless Mini Splits?
Ductless mini splits are heating and cooling units that require an outdoor condenser and an indoor blower unit. The systems work to connect either a single room or, on a larger system, multiple rooms.
Ductless mini split services offer an easy and generally affordable way to add heat or cooling to a room that does not have ductwork. If you are renovating a home or doing a room conversion, such as turning an attic into a bedroom, a mini split heating and cooling system would add heat and cooling without the expense of adding metal ductwork to that room.
Installing ductless mini splits is generally easier than installing a new furnace or air conditioning unit. They are virtually ductless HVAC systems. The outdoor unit connects to the indoor air handling units via a hose which allows the unit to deliver warm or cold air to the room or throughout the ductless mini split systems.
In the simplest terms, ductless mini split systems are small HVAC units that do not require ductwork installation.
What Makes Ductless Mini Splits Different from Other HVAC Systems?
One of the big differences between ductless mini splits and standard HVAC systems is the ease you get with ductless mini split installation. To connect the outside unit to the inside air handler, it only requires only a small hole.
Another big difference is the cost of installation. There may not be a large difference if your home already has ductwork, but for homes that do not have ductwork, the cost savings for a ductless mini split is significant. After all, you are not paying for ductwork material and installation.
A ductless mini split also is a faster and cheaper method of getting heated or cooled air to a new room, such as a garage or attic conversion.
A ductless mini split is also more energy-efficient than a regular HVAC system. Their smaller size means that you can add zoning and some ductless systems can support upwards of four air handlers. That’s a lot of heating and cooling coverage from one system. Plus, they provide both heating and cooling, not just one or the other.
Benefits of Ductless Mini Splits
Improved Energy Efficiency
Because you can heat or cool targeted rooms rather than the entire house your heating and cooling system uses less energy. You can also, in most cases, use the remote control system as a thermostat for each room where there is an air handler unit.
Easy Installation Process
Ductless systems are much easier to install than traditional HVAC systems. There is a tiny hole needed to connect the outdoor unit to the indoor air handling units. For brick buildings, that is much easier than cutting a large hole for HVAC piping. A ductless system also only requires one power line, rather than two.
Low Noise Output
One of the best features of ductless mini split systems is that they are very quiet. They don’t have a burner like a furnace, so there are no noises associated with the unit heating air or the banging that you sometimes get when cold air ducts heat up and expand.
Greater Temperature Control
Because a mini split system can control one or more rooms, you are only paying to heat or cool specific areas. You can also adjust the thermostat on the remote control for each room. There is not a centrally placed thermostat unit. The remote controls act as thermostats for individual rooms. That means your ductless mini split system gives you greater control over the temperature in each room
