Ductless HVAC Systems in Minneapolis, MN

The ductless mini split is an invention that is only now making an impact in homes in the U.S. But it’s an impressive impact: now homes without the space for ducts no longer have to make do with the inefficient and inferior cooling power of window units. Ductless systems offer heating as well, making them an option that many homeowners should consider for their next installation.

How Ductless Heating and Cooling Works

What’s the secret of a ductless mini split? First, it’s a type of heat pump, which means it can change the direction it moves refrigerant in order to provide both heating and cooling. It can distribute this conditioned air around a home without ducts because it uses multiple indoor air handler units rather than a single one that connects to the ventilation system.

The outdoor unit connects to a set of 1–8 mini air handlers that are mounted up on walls in the room. Each unit has a refrigerant coil and blower fan. When the unit turns on, the conditioned air flows directly into the space. It’s similar to how a window unit sends out cooling—but a ductless system is more powerful, efficient, compact, and doesn’t block up windows.

Why Ductless Air Conditioning and Heating May Be Beneficial

There are a number of good reasons to install a ductless mini split heat pump in a home:

  • Space: For homes without the space for ducts, or when constructing newer homes to save space, a ductless system offers possibilities a central system doesn’t.
  • Zone Control: Since each air handler can be operated independently from the others, only the rooms that require cooling/heating need to receive it.
  • Energy Savings: Ducts suffer heat loss and heat gain, lowering system efficiency. Ductless mini splits don’t have this trouble, so they’re less expensive to run.
  • Improved Air Quality: Without ducts clogged up with dust and lint that gets blasted out into the house, a ductless system can contribute to better air quality.
