What Is a Mini Split?
Mini splits are a kind of air source heat pump, and like other heat pumps, they consist of an outdoor and an indoor unit and are much more efficient than even the most energy efficient AC or furnace, leading to reduced energy bills all year round. A mini split’s outdoor condenser unit is much smaller than that of a regular heat pump, so it doesn’t require as much space outside. The majority of mini splits offer both cooling and heating settings, letting you stay comfortable all year long for less, but they also come as straight cooling systems, in case all you’re trying to do is only cool a space (like a garage, for example).
There are two main types of mini splits: ductless and ducted. Below we’ll cover some of the differences for comparison:
Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless mini split systems do not require ductwork to blow cold air in your home, which helps reduce your home’s heat load and eliminates the potential cool air and energy loss through holes in the ductwork.
The indoor unit of a ductless mini split is installed directly in the rooms of your home where you need conditioned air with one or more indoor high wall, ceiling cassette, or floor mounted unit, and are controlled by either a remote control or a WiFi enabled thermostat. If wall space is a concern, they also come in the form of recessed ceiling cassettes or floor mounted indoor units. This makes them a flexible HVAC solution for single room additions, garages, Arizona rooms made of glass, or an entire home!
Ducted Mini Splits
Ducted mini splits function much like traditional split heat pump systems and come paired with a ducted air handler. What separates them is that they have inverter driven compressors that intelligently deliver the exact amount of heating and cooling needed at any given time. They have the ability to ramp their airflow and compressor speed up and down depending on how hot (or cold) it is outside, in order to keep the temperatures in your home optimal and provide you with constant comfort. This type of system is also known as a variable capacity or variable speed system.

Customized Home Comfort Solutions with Ducted or Ductless Mini Split Installation
Do some areas of your home need to be cooled down in the summer much more than others? Do your family members have different sleeping temperature preferences? Wouldn’t it be nice to not pay to keep your kitchen or dining room as cool as your bedroom at night when you’re asleep? Is there a room or area of your home without duct vents that gets way too hot in the summer?
Mini split heat pumps can be used in a number of different configurations and can operate completely independently from each other, giving you greater control over your home HVAC system than central air conditioning.
