What is a mini-split?
Mini-Split systems, also known as ductless, or wall mounted heat pumps are becoming increasingly popular. Similar to central air conditioning, mini-split systems have two main components: an outdoor compressor unit, and an indoor unit that exchanges heat with the outdoor unit. Installation only requires a single small hole ( approximately 3 inches in diameter) to connect the outdoor and indoor units allowing heat to be moved between them. The main advantages of Mini-Split systems is their small size, low cost, efficiency and ability to both cool and heat. Unlike traditional air conditioners or heat pumps, Mini-Split compressors take advantage of recent advancements in inverter technology enabling variable compressor speeds for reduced noise and increased efficiency. While inital costs excede window mounted air conditioning units, Mini-Split systems do not need to be seasonally removed, stored, and reinstalled and are much more quiet and efficient for both cooling and heating than traditioanl air conditioners and furnaces.
