In its simple design, a single-zone ductless mini split system includes an outdoor and indoor unit attached by refrigerant tubing and wiring that works together to supply heated or cooled air directly into your living space. The indoor unit is usually secured on the wall with no ductwork required. A multi-zone system consists of one outdoor unit that works in conjunction with up to 5 indoor units that distributes air throughout the home bringing comfort to every room. The adaptability of mini split systems allow for them to be utilized in room additions, garages, basements, sunrooms, etc.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, traditional heating and air conditioning units can lose up to 30% of the air as a result of leaky ductwork. With a ductless mini-split system, the air is delivered directly into the room without having to first circulate through ducts at all, making it 40% more efficient and in turn lowering your utility costs. Ductless mini-split systems are also outlined to meet Energy Star standards, using an environmentally ozone friendly refrigerant, reducing your carbon footprint.
