Simply give us a call to schedule service on ductless heat pumps in the Santa Fe area.

How Ductless Air Conditioning and Heating Works

A ductless mini split heat pump is ingeniously simple in how it eliminates ducts from the heating and cooling process. A standard traditional heat pump is a split system, meaning the system consists of a single outdoor unit and single indoor unit. An air handler blower unit sends the conditioned air from the indoor unit, through system of ducts, and into the space in the room or building that needs the heating or cooling.

Other the other hand, a ductless mini split system may use multiple smaller air handler units that can be mounted unobtrusively high on walls in different rooms throughout the house or business. The indoor units are still connected to the outdoor component (usually referred to as a compressor), allowing them to heat and cool air in each living and working spaces as needed. In this way the system can divide a home or office into several zones adding greater comfort, flexibility, and efficiency for the occupants. No need for ducts—heating and cooling comes straight from the mini air handlers in each zone. Mitsubishi systems can be designed with several other air handler components such as ceiling cassettes and floor units that allow even greater flexibility for home owners.

What Are the Benefits of Going with Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning?

Here are some of the reasons we recommend ductless heating and cooling systems:

  • Dual Function Heating and Cooling: Like any heat pump, a ductless mini split works as both a powerful cooling system and an energy efficient heating system.
  • Reduced Energy Use: The motors in ductless systems are “smarter” than in conventional heat pumps and they much use less power. Unlike normal heating or cooling systems that are either 100% on or 100% off, ductless system motors are inverter driven – meaning they can speed up or slow down based on the need. When only a little energy is needed to maintain the temperature, then that is all the system uses. In addition, the lack of ducts prevents the heat loss/heat gain through the duct work thereby improving energy efficiency over a ducted system.
  • Flexibility: Ductless mini splits give older homes the opportunity to enjoy centralized comfort without having to find a way to construct ducts where there isn’t room. This also makes them great for new building projects. There are a variety of components available that make designing a system easy. And if you have an old oil or gas furnace, there are solutions for that too.
  • Better Indoor Air Quality: Ducts collect dander, dust, lint, and more. Without ducts, there won’t be as many pollutants and allergens circulating throughout a home or office.
  • Zone Control: The different air handlers in the home can be controlled separately from one another. Homes and businesses can enjoy temperatures suited to different rooms and the different comfort needs of the people in them.

    Excellent Prompt Service




    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    James Plumbing & Heating was a real lifesaver for us on a Friday afternoon. My husband and I were engaged in numerous house projects when we noticed our boiler was out Friday morning. My husband attempted to re-light the pilot, but it wasn't staying lit. We tried several HVAC companies, all who were booked for weeks. James placed us on a waiting list, and shortly thereafter, Carlos came and replaced our thermocouple, promptly and professionally. We had never used James Plumbing & Heating before, but we certainly will in the future. Thank you so much!

    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    Having my hot water heater break during a cold snap, and then finding out it was leaking water everywhere was a nightmare. But James and Isaac worked super hard to fix the problem and ended up installing a much quieter and simpler option!

    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    Dominic was quick and detailed on what he did. He was friendly and personable. However the price of $677 for 45 minutes of work (arrived at 8:15 left before 9) is a bit high in my mind.
