1. Easy Installation - No ductwork is required for mini-splits making it easy to install in spaces like basements and garages. However; DO NOT attempt to install your own heat pump without professional experience. Installation requires two small lines to carry refrigerant from the outdoor condenser to the indoor evaporator through a small 3” hole in the wall. Typically installed in only a few hours, some outdoor units can be located as far as 50’ away from the indoor evaporator. This makes it possible to cool rooms on the front side of the house, but keep the compressor tucked away in a more discreet location.
2. Quiet Operation - By dividing the heat pump into two units, the noisier component (the compressor) remains outdoors. Mini-split units can operate at sound levels as low as 19 dB... you may not even notice when it’s running!
3. Temperature Zoning - The ability to zone your home with a mini-split system gives you tremendous control and flexibility over your home’s environment and efficiency. Since each room has its own thermostat, you get perfect temperature control per room and only cool or heat spaces as needed. Controlling each heat pump zone independently provides increased comfort and flexibility that larger systems may lack.
4. Efficient & Eco-friendly - Energy efficient heat pump models can produce more heat energy than the electricity they consume. Mini-splits use advanced control algorithms, intelligently-designed heat exchangers, and inverter-driven compressors to save you more on energy bills. The lack of ductwork means less energy loss than central forced air systems: there is less than a 5% cooling loss in a mini-split’s insulated refrigerant lines compared to more than 30% through ductwork. Additionally, there is only a 3” hole in the outside wall, so you’ll experience less temperature loss than a window-mounted air conditioner unit. Units even come pre-charged with refrigerant which is designed to prevent the depletion of the ozone layer.
5. Design Flexibility - The indoor evaporator can be hung on a wall, suspended from a ceiling, or even mounted flush into a drop ceiling. In addition to the variety of mounting options, the unit itself has a sleek looking design and will easily blend into any room.
