How Do Ductless Mini-Splits Work?

Traditionally, homes are heated and cooled with HVAC equipment such as furnaces, central AC systems, and heat pumps. However, ductless mini splits are commonly used to provide warm and cool temperatures to areas without ductwork.

Evergreen Heating & Air’s latest blog post will discuss how ductless mini splits work, why you may want to install them, and the most common areas where homeowners choose to install them. Reach out to our team today to learn more or to schedule an appointment for installation or repair in the Waco, TX area.

How Ductless Mini Split Systems Work

Ductless mini split systems include an outdoor unit, called a compressor, and indoor units that are individually installed in rooms throughout the home. Each indoor unit has evaporator coils that are cooled off with refrigerant. The indoor and outdoor units are connected via refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, a power cable, and a condensate drain.

While in cooling mode, the indoor unit will absorb warm air from within the room and transfer it to the outdoor compressor. When in heating mode, the process is reversed, and the compressor absorbs thermal energy from the outdoor air, transferring it inside to heat the room.

Each indoor unit features a thermostat that allows for maximum temperature control. Because they’re designed to provide single rooms with heat and AC, one room’s temperature won’t affect another’s. This eliminates arguments at the thermostat and keeps everyone in the home happy and comfortable.

Why to Install Ductless Mini Splits

Homeowners typically choose to install ductless mini splits if there are areas of their homes that can’t access ductwork. For example, basements, bonus rooms, and sunrooms may not have ductwork installed, making it impossible to maintain consistent temperatures in those areas without a ductless system.

Additionally, if your current furnace or air conditioner is not providing some areas of the home with even temperatures, ductless systems can provide those rooms with a boost.

Ductless mini split systems can even entirely replace your home’s current HVAC system. Several ductless units can be installed throughout all rooms of the household to allow for maximum comfort and temperature control.
