Everything You Need to Know about Ductless Mini Splits

This new heating and air conditioning product is changing the way people heat and cool their homes in Omaha and around the country. The ductless mini split is a new alternative to an HVAC system, a window unit or heat pump. Getzschman Heating & Cooling explains everything you need to know about how a ductless mini split can help keep your home more comfortable.

Ductless Mini Split Systems Explained

This technology differs from traditional heating and cooling systems in a few ways. First, it doesn’t require any ductwork. Consisting of an indoor air handling unit and a slim-line outdoor condenser unit, they can be installed virtually anywhere without any need for ductwork.

How Ductless Mini Splits Work

They work very similarly to the way a window unit works in that they are responsible for the comfort of only a small room or area. To work, simple copper tubing and electrical wiring from the inside unit are connected to an outdoor unit. Refrigerant is pumped from the outdoor condenser coil and compressor through the tubing to an indoor unit. A fan then distributes cool air that is drawn across the unit’s evaporator coil. The amount of cool air pumped into the room is regulated by a remote control thermostat.

Where Ductless Mini Splits Should Be Installed

Ductless mini splits are great for almost any room. But they are especially great for things like newly constructed additions to your home, smaller areas in your home where a larger unit doesn’t make sense, in garages or sunrooms, or even as supplemental heating and cooling in rooms that have inconsistent temperatures.
