How Ductless Mini-Split Systems Work. Single & Multi-Zone Applications

Video Guide for how ductless mini-split systems work and its’ advantages over conventional systems. The ductless mini-split system is becoming more attractive today. Similar to a conventional split system that has components on the interior and exterior, the ductless mini-split system would have a condensing unit or heat pump on the outside connected by a line duct to an air handler on the inside.

The advantages of going with a ductless system over a conventional system are – cost effective; great for renovation work (no duct work required and installed in places where it’s most needed); can be used in addition to existing split systems; very efficient (up to 26 SEER rating systems available on; quiet and sleek operation; attractive and low-profile; remote control operated.

Several different styles are available depending on the best application for you. Wall-mounted units are very popular, but there are also ceiling-mounted units, ceiling cassettes (used with drop ceilings), concealed units (installed above the ceiling itself and has a small duct that gets tied into outlets) and floor-mounted units.

Ductless mini-split systems can also be used in single zone or multi-zone applications. For multi-zone applications, it should be noted that you will need to use it with a heat pump. They are remote control operated, but you can also install a wall-mounted thermostat. Units can be used in a multi-zone application as a mix and match. For example, you can have a wall-mounted unit in 1 room and a ceiling-mounted unit in another.
