Falcon Heating And Air Van

In recent years, a relatively new option has appeared in the market for home heating and cooling. Mini-split systems, also known as ductless heat pump systems, are a type of system that provides both heating and cooling. They consist of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that are mounted on walls or ceilings in individual rooms or zones. Each indoor unit is connected to the outdoor unit by a small conduit that houses refrigerant and electrical lines. The system is called a mini-split because it is made up of two parts, one for handling indoor air and the other that acts as the outdoor compressor.

New and Different Options

One of the primary benefits of mini-split systems is their flexibility. Because they don't require ductwork, they can be installed in homes or buildings that don't have existing duct systems or where adding ductwork would be impractical or expensive. They also allow for zoned heating and cooling, meaning that different areas of a home or building can be set to different temperatures based on individual preferences or usage patterns.

Efficiency Gains

Mini-split systems also are highly efficient. Because they don't lose heat or cool air through ductwork, they can be up to 30 percent more efficient than central air conditioning systems. They also use inverter-driven compressors, which adjust the system's output to match the demand for heating or cooling, resulting in less energy waste and lower utility bills.

Ease of Installation and Maintenance

In addition to their efficiency and flexibility, mini-split systems are relatively easy to install and maintain. Their compact size makes them easy to fit into tight spaces. They also come with washable filters that can be easily removed and cleaned, helping to ensure that the system operates at peak efficiency.

Overall, mini-split systems offer a great combination of flexibility, efficiency, and ease of use, making them a smart choice for many homeowners and businesses.
