Why Choose a Ductless Mini-Split System?

Ductless mini-split systems are composed of two primary components: an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. The outdoor unit, typically placed outside the home, contains the compressor and condenser components responsible for heat exchange. Refrigerant lines, power cables, and a condensate drain connect the indoor and outdoor units via a conduit.

Within each zone or room, an indoor unit is strategically mounted, serving as both an air handler and a thermostat. Here’s where the magic happens: the outdoor unit transfers heat between the refrigerant and the outside air, either absorbing heat from the outdoors to provide heating or releasing heat outdoors to provide cooling. This thermal exchange allows you to independently control the temperature in each zone, ensuring maximum comfort and energy efficiency.

Compared to traditional HVAC systems, ductless mini-splits are the perfect heating and cooling system for when:

  • Space is tight or limited
  • Your home is older with no ductwork
  • Building codes prevent larger HVAC installations
  • You need supplemental heating
  • Saving money on your energy bills is important to you
  • And more!

When a ductless mini-split system is installed, one external heat pump can control four independent rooms (or zones). You can then individually select heating and cooling settings in those four areas—helping you save money by maximizing your energy use!

Ductless mini-split air conditioning systems and heating systems are a great addition for:

  • Attics
  • Individual rooms
  • Room additions and wings
  • Remodeled areas
  • Sunrooms
  • Play areas
  • Basements
  • Office spaces
  • Computer rooms
  • And any other area of your Kansas City home that you wish to have precise temperature controlDuctless Mini-Split unit installed in Olathe Kansas

Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Installing a ductless mini-split heating and cooling system comes with a host of benefits:

Reduced Energy Loss

One of the standout advantages is the elimination of energy losses associated with leaky ductwork. Central forced air systems with ducts can lose over 30 percent of energy due to duct leaks. Ductless mini-splits avoid this issue entirely.

Zone Control Flexibility

Ductless mini-splits offer the flexibility to independently zone up to four areas within your Kansas City home. This means you can efficiently cool and heat different rooms according to your needs, a level of control that central AC units or window-mounted systems can’t match.

Space-Saving Design

Compared to window unit air conditioners, ductless air conditioners are significantly quieter and more compact. They provide zoned heating and cooling for interior areas without the need for bulky window units.

Quiet Operation

Customers often praise the quietness of ductless mini-splits. The noisy components, such as the compressor and condenser, are located in an outdoor unit, leaving only the near-silent fan and evaporator unit to operate indoors.

Improved Efficiency

Ductless mini-split systems boast impressive SEER ratings, often reaching up to 27 SEER, compared to the 12 to 20 SEER of conventional units. Higher SEER ratings translate to less energy consumption lower utility bills.

Enhanced Security

Unlike larger wall and window-mounted air conditioners that can provide potential entry points for intruders, a ductless mini-split air conditioner poses no such threat. This ductless air conditioner is securely attached to your home through a mere three-inch hole, preserving your home’s security.
