How Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems Work
In many respects, the ductless mini split works much like an ordinary heat pump. It has an outdoor unit with a compressor and condenser coiler as well as an indoor unit with an evaporator and blower motor. The chief difference is that it has multiple indoor air blowers rather than just one attached to a network of ducts.
The individual blowers are installed at key points in your home, and each can be separately controlled so that you can truly customize the temperature throughout your living space. They work in both the summer and winter, and they compress and decompress refrigerant in order to transfer thermal energy from one area to another.
The Benefits of Going Ductless
There are several benefits available to homeowners who are looking for something different in their homes. Here are just a handful of reasons why you might want to go ductless before the next heating or cooling season:
- Better energy efficiency.
- No matter how tightly sealed and insulated, ducts still contribute to the loss of energy, and therefore ductless systems often have much higher efficiency ratings.
- Versatile comfort.
- It’d be nice to silence those arguments about adjusting the thermostat once and for all, right? A ductless system allows you to customize the temperature to whatever the inhabitant of that room wants it to be.

Despite the benefits of these systems, they aren’t invincible. They still suffer from daily wear and tear, and yours may eventually break down or begin to show signs of its age. It’s important to keep a close watch over your systems’ performance and efficiency because problems usually reveal themselves far in advance.
If your system fails to turn on and off when it should, or one or more of your blowers is not functional at all, our technicians will be happy to provide you with a solution. We have the expertise necessary to diagnose the issue and restore the comfort of your home, be it summer or winter.
