Producers of the popular home remodelling show, Operation Build, which airs on the History Channel, had a problem. The project they were working on – an overcrowded garage remodel for a home in South Florida – had no cooling or heating. After researching their options, they chose the world’s most efficient heat pump for the job.
What are the advantages of a Mini-split ductless air conditioner & heat pump?
The U.S. Department of Energy states:
“Ductless, mini-split-system heat pumps (mini splits) make good retrofit add-ons to houses with “non-ducted” heating systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters (wood, kerosene, propane). They can also be a good choice for room additions where extending or installing distribution ductwork is not feasible and very efficient new homes that require only a small space conditioning system. Be sure to choose an ENERGY STAR® compliant unit and hire an installer familiar with the product and its installation.
Like standard air-source heat pumps, mini splits have two main components — an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units.”
What are the disadvantages of a Mini-split ductless air conditioner & heat pump?
Depending on the application, these systems can cost more that ducted whole-home heating and cooling solutions; however, mini-ductless systems are often installed when existing ducting isn’t accessible.
