    All About Ductless Mini-split Systems


  • All About Ductless Mini-split Systems

    April 30, 2014

    Sometimes the space in your home or the way the rooms are laid out cannot accommodate conventional duct work and equipment. In this case, it’s time to consider having a ductless mini-split system installed by one of our American Air & Heat technicians. There are many advantages of installing this versatile system for your home.

    Save on Energy and Money

    Despite their small size and flexibility, most models allow you to attach as many as four indoor air handling units to each system. This means you can cool as many as four rooms or zones as the need arises, such as when the room or zone is occupied. This gives you greater control over your energy use and may end up saving you quite a bundle in energy costs over time.

    You can suffer more than 30 percent of energy loss through your system’s duct work. Since mini-splits do not have duct work, you completely circumvent this problem and end up with a more energy- and cost-efficient system.


    Most manufacturers offer a wide range of connecting conduit lengths, which means you do not have to install the outdoor unit right outside the room or zone it controls. You can efficiently control the temperature of a room at the front of the house and locate the outdoor compressor somewhere else where it will be less conspicuous.


    Mini-split systems require only a small hole in the wall for the conduit to pass through. This makes them the safer choice against home intruders compared to through the wall or window-mounted air conditioners.
