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.

Outstanding Service




Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

They called me back first thing in the morning after I left a non-emergency message late the night before. They fit me in same-day so that our family would have access to a shower for the long holiday weekend. Isaac also noticed that our hot water setting was way too high and adjusted the hot water heater accordingly for safety. James’ has done an emergency call for us on a weekend in the past. They are the best!

Great response time




Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

We could not regulate our new combination boiler for our hot water and floor heating last fall. James came out and fixed the problem when the original contractor would not because they had already been paid. Recently the middle of May we did not have constant hot water. It took a couple of call backs but James stayed on it to determine the recent influx of moths had clogged the heat exchanger. Great service and certainly appreciate their follow through.
