Ductless Mini Split Installation

Ductless Mini Split Installation Services

When you have a house full of people of various ages, you’ll find that everyone is comfortable at a different temperature. Some people run hot, others are always cold. Sometimes it’s hard to find a thermostat setting that appeases everyone, but what if you didn’t have to? A ductless mini split is a heating and cooling system that can be used to control different zones throughout your home. A zone can cover one room like a sunroom, or a few rooms like the second floor of your house. These systems can be turned on, off, or adjusted to meet every household member’s comfort needs.

What is a Ductless Mini Split?

A ductless mini-split, as the name suggests, is a type of heating and cooling system that does not require the use of ductwork throughout the home. It works to both heat your home and cool your home throughout the year. A ductless mini-split is composed of two units, one indoor and one outdoor. They are connected to your home through refrigerant lines that are expertly placed by an HVAC technician and can be set up to control the temperature in one or multiple rooms called a “zone”.

Many people like having zones to heat and cool their homes because they can help save energy. If you have unoccupied rooms in your home, you can turn off the mini split feeding into that room so that energy isn’t being wasted.

How Do Ductless Mini Splits Work?

The beauty about ductless mini splits is that they can easily be installed with minimal intrusion, and they have a simple design that allows them to transfer heat energy from outside your home to another part of the home.

A ductless mini split is made of 2 components; an indoor air handler and an outdoor heat pump unit to get heat energy. The two systems are connected with a 2-inch conduit that is run between them. These systems do not require air ducts, making them a great choice for modernizing older homes or when you’re building a new home.

Benefits of Ductless Mini Split Installation in Your St. Louis, MO Home

Save on Energy Costs

It’s estimated that ductless mini-splits save, on average, anywhere between 30-40% more energy than traditional air conditioners. That’s because they don’t work by heating up or cooling down the entire home. Instead, you can install your ductless mini split to focus on heating or cooling only one or several rooms in the home.

Instead of heating or cooling the entire home and wasting energy, simply turn on your ductless mini split when you’re in the room you need to be cooled, such as a sunroom or your bedroom at night.

Heat Or Cool Small Spaces

Ductless mini splits are also one of the best cooling and heating systems for smaller homes. Having an air conditioner that is too large for your home can actually lead to energy waste and higher energy costs.

You don’t have to worry about any of that with heat pumps, which are great for smaller homes, as well as individual rooms, bungalows, attics, sheds, new additions, and more.

Ease of Installation

Ductless mini splits do not require ductwork to be placed throughout the home. The units are connected by refrigerant lines, which are carefully placed within the walls of your home. An HVAC technician will drill a hole about 2 inches in diameter to connect the units.

Many ductless mini splits are now incredibly sleek, blending easily into the background of your home. Installation is so easy, it can take just a matter of hours or a day to install. These systems are minimally invasive and can come in a variety of sizes and colors.

P.S. I forgot to mention that Ed was our family repairman for a long time — I have good memories of him giving me broken parts to play with/disassemble when I was a kid!

The furnace went out during a cold snap in March. Welsch was here with different options available from repair to a new unit. We opted for a new air conditioner and heater as the old one was close to 15 years old. They were competitive with other dealers so we...
