Are you looking to replace your HVAC system or in need of an efficient alternative to compliment your current system? A popular option among Phoenix Valley, Arizona homeowners is to add a ductless mini-split system. Choosing this type of system has several advantages for your comfort and your home. 

What is a ductless mini-split system?

A ductless mini-split system is simply a smaller version of a traditional heating or cooling system. These systems consist of two main parts including an outdoor compressor and a wall mounted indoor air handling unit. A conduit runs through the wall to connect the two parts and contains tubes for refrigerant and drainage along with a power cable. 

Much like it’s name implies, there are no ducts within a mini-split system. The air produced typically stays within the space the indoor unit is located as there are no ducts to carry it throughout the home.

Common Installation

Ductless mini-split systems offer a great alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems for many reasons. These are common reasons and typical areas of installation: 

  • Older Home or Building: An older home may not have a duct system already installed for a central HVAC system. A ductless mini-split of course does not require a duct system and is a cheaper installation option.
  • Individual Rooms: A room where it is difficult to maintain a comfortable temperature can easily have a ductless mini-split installed to create a comfortable area. 
  • Garage: Detached hobby shops, garages, or sheds where you might do a lot of work or play in are a great contender for a ductless mini-split system. You can easily regulate the temperature inside and turn the system off when not in use. 
  • Additions: Typically not connected to your central HVAC system, the temperature inside an addition can be controlled by an easily installed ductless mini-split system. 
  • Vacant Rooms: If you have a room that is not typically occupied or used, a ductless mini-split system installed can be turned off and save you a few dollars on an unoccupied room.

Key Advantages

Ductless mini split AC systems have several advantages to take into account when you are considering installing one. A few of the most important advantages include: 

  • Quick Installation: A skilled technician can typically install a ductless mini-split system in approximately a day. Also, once the unit is installed, you are able to use it immediately as it does not need to connect it to an existing HVAC system. 
  • Efficiency: Using less energy than your standard AC or heating system, a mini-split system can cut the cost of cooling the space. As they do not have a duct system or complex components, you will also save on the maintenance costs of cooling your room. 
  • Complete Control: Each room with a ductless mini-split system can be controlled remotely. Similar to a smart thermostat, you will have the ability to control the temperature of the room remote and set a schedule to run the system when it is best for your comfort.
