A mini-split unit can fit the needs of a wide range of applications. The ductless design can easily be retrofitted in existing structures or installed in new construction.
Mini-split systems are worth consideration when constructing a new building if you want full zone control in small areas or rooms. Each space is granted its own temperature control, meaning the rooms being used are heated or cooled. This significantly saves on energy expenses over the unit’s lifetime compared to a traditional HVAC system.
Adding a mini-split unit to an existing structure is really where the design becomes the best option. These systems are ductless, so they can be installed and operated without the high expense of adding ductwork to an already finished building. Ductless also means higher efficiency as air is not lost traveling and escaping through leaky ducts around the house.
