What Is a Mini-Split Heating System?

A mini-split heating system (also called a ductless mini-split) is a dual-purpose HVAC unit that offers both heating and cooling capabilities. Unlike a traditional furnace, a mini-split heating unit is made up of two units connected via refrigerant lines: an outdoor condenser and one or more indoor air handlers. Each of these is installed directly in the rooms that they are meant to heat. The system will then move low-temperature heat from the outdoors into your home to keep you warm all winter. 

The Benefits of a Ductless Heating System

Due to their localized functionality, ductless heating units are incredibly energy-efficient. But mini-split systems offer much more than improved energy efficiency to their owners, including the following key benefits:

  • Reduced heating expenses: Thanks to improved energy efficiency, you’ll enjoy lower costs to heat your home during the colder season.
  • Customizable indoor comfort: Because mini-split systems are ducted, you have more freedom to customize your indoor comfort needs by changing your system’s location.
  • Easy system installation: Ductless units don’t require air duct installation, making them exceptionally easy to install in your home.
  • Dual-purpose HVAC: Many mini-split heating systems are also capable of cooling your home, offering a year-round solution for your indoor comfort needs.

Ductless heating systems are incredibly versatile, allowing owners to maintain a consistent indoor temperature without breaking the bank once the winter season hits. Not only will homeowners enjoy all of the benefits mentioned above, but they’ll also enjoy lower system prices thanks to reduced labor and parts required for installation.
