Conventional split heat pumps and central air conditioning systems use forced air through ducts. Mini split heat pumps and air conditioners are ductless. This advanced technologically delivers cooled air and heated air ,,in the case of a heat pump, directly into different parts of your home or office. Gulf Shores homeowners and condo owners love them. Find out why.
Two Parts to a Mini Split System
There is no ductwork. A small outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor unit, usually mounted high on an exterior wall is all there is. They require electricity. They are incredibly energy efficient for several reasons.
According to some in the HVAC industry, your home loses 25 percent or more of the heating and cooling power through the ductwork. Those flexible hoses in your attic are very inefficient and leak…. alot.
Sometimes referred to as split systems, multi-split systems, or split-ductless systems, ductless cooling and heating are much more attractive and secure than inefficient window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters.
This heating and air conditioning equipment is typically installed in room additions, condominiums and apartments, and for better temperature control in specific rooms.
Mini Split Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps vs. Ductless Systems
Is there a difference between mini split heat pumps and ductless systems? Nope. They are the same thing. But not all mini split systems are heat pumps. Some are straight out air conditioners.
Most provide very quiet operation by utilizing dc inverter technology to maintain comfortable heat and humidity levels. They operate at low speeds with indoor sound levels as low as 19 decibels (dB) and outdoor sound levels as low as 46 dB.
