Whether you have an add on to your home that seems to be a little hotter than the rest of the house or you’re simply searching for an efficient way to improve your home’s comfort, a mini-split system may be the way to go.
What’s a mini-split system?
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that is has its focus on distinct rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more flexible and energy efficient than common central air systems and are simpler to install since there is no ductwork required. They pump air straight to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have their own wireless electronic temperature control systems.
Mini-split systems aren’t just one size, nor are they all produced equally, or for the same size room. Similar to normal air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be sized to fit the room that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which may also mean savings on your monthly energy bills as well. They’re normally used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes with no room for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces

A quick primer
A mini-split system operates by employing a process that only creates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to reach or maintain the temperature you choose. That being said, a properly sized system is still critical to reap all of the efficiency benefits offered.
