Is a Ductless/Mini-Split System the Right Fit for My Home?

Ductless Mini Split System

When considering a ductless/mini-split as a product option for your home, you may feel like you aren’t sure you know enough to make a decision. Let’s take a look at the details you need to know to make an informed choice that’s right for your home.

Ductless/mini-splits are particularly efficient when compared to other HVAC systems, because they recycle energy. They also use electricity instead of burning gas, which can be advantageous for people concerned about the environment.

Although they offer many benefits, ductless/mini-split systems aren’t ideal for every type of home out there. They perform well in environments where the heating/cooling load is not too high. In other words, they should be used in conjunction with good sealing and insulations, and they are ideal for smaller homes and apartments, or homes where only certain rooms need heating or cooling.

However, when a smaller home is very tight and insulated, a mini-split installed in that room will likely be much more powerful than the room actually needs. Because mini-splits are only built in a certain number of incremental sizes, it is difficult to get a custom or perfect fit.

Ductless/Mini-Split: Ideal Product Option for Small-to-Medium Sized Spaces

What’s the ideal home for a ductless mini-split? It is the perfect retrofit solution for indoor climate control in small to medium sized spaces or for homes without ductwork. They are also a good choice as a secondary heating and cooling system when you only need to accommodate one room or a small separate area of your home. These systems are relatively small, and will accommodate heating and cooling needs of individual rooms.

Mini-split systems are great when you want to heat/cool a few select rooms, or a small, well-insulated home, and you don’t want to have duct work done. They are especially great if you don’t have the space to install ducts in the building or room, or if you have a space that can’t fit properly-sized cuts. In these situations, they are relatively convenient to install, and highly efficient.
