Ducted heating and cooling systems like furnaces, central air conditioners and heat pumps are popular options for American homes. However, there are certain situations where these options aren’t the best choices. A ductless mini-split heat pump gives you another choice for keeping your home comfortable year round.
When to Consider a Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump
Which situations are best suited for ductless mini-split heat pumps?
- Adding additional heating/cooling to a home without ducts – While not common in central Florida, radiant and hydronic heating is quite common in other areas of the country. A ductless mini-split makes it easy to add more heating and cooling capacity to homes that don’t have ducts in place.
- Heating and cooling a room addition – Sometimes it’s not feasible to extend existing ductwork into a room addition. A ductless mini-split offers an efficient, flexible option for bringing conditioned air to these extended spaces. This kind of system is also effective for heating and cooling detached buildings on your property, like a garage, workshop or shed.
- Smaller, efficient homes – If you build a new high-efficiency home, a series of ductless mini-splits may be the best choice for heating and cooling. These will remove the need to add ductwork to the home and give you the option of zoning your home for even more efficiency.
- Spaces where you want interior design flexibility – The interior unit of a ductless mini-split can go just about anywhere. You can install it suspended from the ceiling, mounted from the ceiling or hung on a wall.
