As homeowners look for ways to cool and heat their homes efficiently and economically, ductless mini-split-system heat pumps (commonly called mini-splits) are an option to consider. Mini-splits are a good choice to retrofit houses with "non-ducted" heating systems, those without air ducts such as hot water radiators (baseboard or free-standing), electric baseboard radiators, electric thermal storage units, radiant panels or floors, or space heaters. They can also be a good option for room additions where extending existing duct work is not feasible or economical.
Mini-splits have two main components -- an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit or pipe, which contains the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and condensate drain, connects the two units. Many outdoor units can connect to as many as four indoor air-handling units for four zones or rooms. Each of the zones has its own thermostat. By heating or cooling only occupied spaces, one can save energy and money.
Since mini-splits have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with the duct work of central forced air systems. The duct losses of forced air systems can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for heating or cooling, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic.
