We understand that the name “Ductless Mini-Split System†might conjure images of a hi-tech gizmo gadget that is immensely complicated to handle and install. Thanks to a decade of technical installation experience, our KD Mechanical experts are adept at effective ductless mini-split system installations that maximize cooling while eliminating the burdens associated with ductwork.

A ductless mini-split system is a great compact alternative option that provides effective cooling. It’s an incredibly compact and convenient cooling solution meant to target and give you control over a specific area of your home. If you need to upgrade your current HVAC system, you might be wary of spending money on more powerful units and ducts. A ductless mini-split system is inexpensive and practical, depending on your cooling needs. As full-time providers of quality AC installations, we at KD Mechanicals offer premium ductless mini-split system solutions for homes and offices. 

How does a ductless mini-split system work? 

While ductless AC installations and cooling systems use the same process for cooling that a typical central air conditioning system does, what makes this system unique from the others is that this system does not require ductwork. You don’t need to expand your current ducts. Mini-split systems use a tiny wall-mounted unit with an evaporator coil and blower fan inside the room you want to heat, and they cool in tandem with an outdoor unit having a compressor, condenser coil, and fan. These two units are then connected to each other with copper refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring. This type of system, known as a single-zone system, is intended to deliver heating and cooling comfort to a single area.

The device pulls air in through a thin, flexible tube and disperses it throughout the house. The interior unit circulates heated and cooled air all through the specific area. Additionally, the entire system is remote-controlled, giving you ease of access and use. 

When should you consider installing a ductless mini split system?

  • Even though a ductless mini-split system is an excellent choice in all situations and spaces, whether you live in a new or an older home, it works best when you want to expand your current cooling systems without the excessive costs of higher capacity units and additional ductwork. 
  • It is also an intelligent choice for spaces that have extreme temperature fluctuations. Ductless mini-split systems enable you to have independent temperature control in a compact area.
  • Remodeling projects
  • Additions/ updates to existing buildings, warehouses, garages, etc 

Advantages of using Ductless mini split systems

  • Compared to more extensive HVAC systems, the maintenance of the units is more straightforward because of the uncomplicated design. 
  • Ductless mini split systems are more energy efficient by using approximately 60% less energy. 
  • This gives you flexible coverage ranging from 200 square feet to 1,200 square feet or more, depending on your installation choice. 
  • These systems work on longer, lower-speed, and quieter comfort cycles with minimal disturbances for quiet operations.
  • With inbuilt filters in each indoor unit, ductless systems provide purified, cleaner air in the installed rooms with no cross contamination or recirculation.
  • They offer precise heating and cooling 

Ductless split systems are simple, cost-effective, and ideal for experiencing cooling in the comfort of your home without the extra overheads associated with traditional ductwork.
