What Is a Ductless Mini Split?

There’s a hot trend when it comes to heating and cooling your house that doesn’t require a traditional heating system or outdoor air conditioning unit: The ductless mini split. Over the past few years, homeowners have opted for the ductless mini split to cool and heat individual rooms in their houses because it allows for greater temperature control and better energy efficiency.

The individual units can cool or warm a room in a matter of minutes, allowing a homeowner to condition the space only when it’s occupied—saving energy and cutting down on that utility bill. So, how is this ductless device different from a traditional air conditioning unit or furnace? The pros at Climatrol Air, who have plenty of experience installing ductless mini splits, have the answers.

A ductless mini split is an air conditioning and heating solution that features two main components: An outdoor compressor-condenser and an indoor air-handling unit that’s typically installed flush to a wall in a room. The two units are linked together via a conduit that houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain.

The individual air-handling units have their own thermostat, allowing you to set a precise temperature in the room where it’s installed. Depending on the system, one outdoor compressor-condenser unit can handle up to eight individual air-handling units in your home. Less powerful outdoor units are designed for a single indoor unit.

Benefits of Mini Split Systems

Range of features for convenience– Most of these units come with equipped remote controls. This means you don’t have to get up to fiddle with the settings each time the room gets too hot or too chilly. You can actually program the unit to turn off after a specific time as well so you don’t have to get up in the middle of the night. Plus, they come with removable and washable filters which are quite easy to clean.

Multiple operating modes– All mini split systems come with multi operating modes for ease and convenience. Besides cooling or heating a room, these can also dehumidify the space they are installed in, which makes them ideal for homeowners who live in humid areas. Plus, you can also get a fan-based or automatic option, depending on your needs.

Better energy efficiency – If you need a heating and cooling system that can reduce your energy bill, you will love the mini split AC system. Compared to the ductless variety which can make you lose over 30% of previous energy these conserve it without compromising performance by giving users greater control over the temperature.

Doesn’t require costly duct work. This is especially important for people who own older homes that don’t have modern ducts to cool and heat upstairs bedrooms. A traditional HVAC system requires ducts that connect to vents in each room to condition those rooms. While a ductless mini split system does have a conduit that contains tubing and power cords, it’s installed on the outside of your home, making it a significantly easier job than installing air ducts.

Precise temperature control. If you want to sleep in a room that’s exactly 68 degrees in the summer, but don’t want to cool off the rest of your home to that temperature, you can do that with a ductless mini split system. It only takes about 5-10 minutes for a room to reach your optimal temperature. And when you’re not in the room, you can simply turn the system off to save energy.

Ductless Mini Split FAQ's

There are many features and benefits that ductless systems have that traditional units do not. First and foremost, you get to decide which rooms to heat or cool.

You can also purchase a single-zone unit for individual rooms where temperature fluctuates easily. Wherever you need more temperature control is where a HVAC will come in handy.

HVAC units also include Wi-Fi or a handheld remote, giving you access to temperature control without ever leaving your couch. Our more complexed units even include an occupancy sensor with the ability to direct airflow toward or away the people in that room. These benefits are unique from traditional heating and cooling systems.

A ductless HVAC system is an indoor fan, referred to as the head, and an outdoor compressor unit. The head measures about 11 inches high, 34 inches long and 12 inches deep and connects with the compressor by copper tubing and electrical wiring that’s passed through a 3-inch hole. The compressor looks like a small central air condenser and can cool and heat one or more rooms.

Ductless mini-split systems provide the same comfort that central heating and cooling systems do but without ductwork. These systems are made up of two parts: and indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit is mounted on the wall inside of your home. The outdoor unit is placed in an inconspicuous spot outside of your home. The two units are connected through electrical wiring, tubing, and the refrigerant line. The entire ductless mini-split system works together to provide heating and air conditioning without ductwork in your North Georgia home. 

Home zoning is one of the many benefits that ductless mini-split systems provide. It’s a term that describes room-by-room temperature control. In other words, placing multiple indoor units in different areas of your home allows you to selectively heat and cool certain parts of your home. This can not only greatly improve your home comfort thanks to the personalization home zoning provides, it can also save you a lot of money. 

Ductless mini-split systems offer tons of benefits. Firstly, they don’t require ductwork so if your North Georgia home doesn’t already have ductwork, you don’t have to worry about the costly and time consuming process of having ductwork installed. Secondly, ductless systems are very energy efficient which means it takes less energy to heat and cool your home which means your energy bills will decrease. Ductless systems also allow for home zoning and customized comfort. That means if one person in your household prefers their bedroom cooler than the rest of the house, it can be done without fighting over the thermostat. 

There are a lot of factors involved in choosing the right heating and air conditioning system. For a ductless mini-split system, you’ll need to keep in mind the size of your home, you and your family’s comfort preferences, how much energy you want to use, etc. Our ductless HVAC contractors here at Climatrol Air® can come out to your North Georgia home for a free estimate.

In most instances, an entire home can be very efficiently and effectively heated and cooled with a ductless system. For larger homes, either multiple single-zone units or a multi-zone unit can be installed with one outdoor unit and multiple indoor units. They can be installed in new homes as the sole source of heating and cooling. They can also be used to completely replace or work in conjunction with an existing ducted system.

It is difficult to answer this question because we're not comparing "Apples-to-Apples". But to put it as simply as possible - ductless products are generally a bit more expensive than conventional heating and cooling equipment, but the lower installation costs, higher efficiency and advanced features often make ductless systems the more cost-effective option.

The best part of a HVAC system is you decide how much you want to spend. Our Comfort™ series units are the most economical way to heat or cool your space, while still delivering energy efficiency and easy serviceability. These units are budget-friendly and can be purchased in a single or multi-zone system. If you’re looking for a more feature-rich system, our Infinity® series is Carrier’s premium option for temperature control. If you’re somewhere in the middle, we also offer a Performance™ series that delivers both efficiency and affordability.

There are other factors that play into price as well, including the size of your space, the amount of rooms to be heated or cooled, and the features of your ductless system. Obviously, the more spaces you need temperature control in, the more units you’ll need to purchase. Contact us for a FREE quote and estimated pricing.

That depends on the model you select. Our Carrier products have a 10-year warranty on parts and 1-year warranty for the labor.

In general, the sound generated by a head is equivalent to whispering in a library (between 21 and 30 decibels). The sound from an outdoor unit is more like normal conversation (60 decibels) but is much less than a conventional air conditioning condenser.

To be clear, we are not necessarily saying that HVAC companies that use a sales force instead of trained techs to sell their new systems are any less competent or trustworthy than us. What we are saying however, is that when problems arise, particularly in this industry, it is usually directly attributed to a miscommunication between the installers and the sales person.

Our owner, Doug Mazursky, a 29 year veteran in the HVAC industry and a NATE certified tech, notes that the largest problem he finds is when one of the the sales people estimate that your house needed an "example 1" type of system and when in fact it needed an "example2" type of system. When this happens, the process, as well as your comfort, gets delayed. Or worse, the wrong system gets installed anyway and has to be corrected.

This miscommunication usually happens for one of two reasons. The first and most common reason is because of the inexperience of the sales person. The other reason is because the sales person is "selling to their inventory." This means the their company has too many "example 1" systems or not enough of example 2 systems in stock and they have been told, or incentivized, to "move" example 1 systems. When this happens you may, or may not, get the best system for your home.

These problems are not uncommon to sales force centric business models. In fact, if you look at the bad reviews for HVAC companies in general, you'll see that almost every bad review can be directly attributed to "he said, she said" or the salesperson over-promising and the company under-delivering. Climatrol Air® will never have this problem because we don't have salespeople. We just have NATE certified techs who quote your job and then install your new system. There can be no miscommunication.
