What Are Mini-Splits?
Mini-splits are indoor units that provide both heating and air conditioning to a particular room or area in your home. They offer benefits like:
Customized indoor comfort
Increased energy efficiency
Lower heating & cooling bills
Better indoor air quality
No need for ductwork
How Do They Work?
In the winter:
- The outside unit collects low-temperature heat from the ambient air.
- The outside unit compresses this heat and moves it indoors.
- The inside unit supplies comfortable, heated indoor air.
In the summer:
- The inside unit collects ambient heat and sends it to the outdoor unit.
- The outdoor unit squeezes heat out of the refrigerant.
- The refrigerant becomes cold and sends cool air back into your home.
What Makes Them Energy Efficient?
Mini-splits are extremely energy efficient because they:
Do not rely on fuel to generate heat
Transfer existing heat from one place to another
Heat and cool only the areas that need it
Eliminate the need for leaky ductwork
