The ductless mini split heat pump is an increasingly popular choice for both homes and businesses. For new residential and commercial building construction, a ductless system allows for more freedom in building and designing. A ductless mini split uses an outdoor unit (or more than one outdoor unit depending on how large the space they need to condition is) that connects to up to 8 indoor air handlers per outdoor unit. Each of the indoor air handlers contains a refrigerant coil and blower fan to send cooled or heated air directly into the living space.
If you’re considering going with a ductless system for your home, you may feel a bit hesitant at first. After all, those air handler units look a lot like window air conditioners, just not set into a window. Window units aren’t much good for efficiency or comfort, so you might wonder if the ductless system can really keep up with a hot summer.
