As a heating and cooling professional for Morland Heating and Air, installing and maintaining a mini-split system is one of the most significant jobs that we have. A mini-split system is known to be one of the most efficient heating and cooling systems that we can use in our homes today. This type of system is very popular among homeowners because of the numerous benefits it possesses. In this blog, we will discuss in detail what a mini-split system does, as well as its benefits and features. We will also discuss how we, as heating and cooling professionals, would install it for a homeowner.

What is a mini split

To begin with, a mini-split system is a type of heating and cooling system that does not rely on ductwork to move air throughout the house. Instead, a mini-split system uses small air handlers that are installed in each room. These air handlers are connected to a central outdoor unit that houses a compressor and condenser. The system works by absorbing heat from the indoor air in the summer and transferring heat from the outdoor air in the winter. This process is done through the use of a refrigerant.

Benefits of a mini split

Mini-split systems have numerous benefits such as their energy efficiency and the option of zone control. One of the main benefits of mini-split systems is their energy efficiency. They are known to be one of the most energy-efficient heating and cooling systems that we have. This is because they do not lose energy through ductwork as traditional central heating and cooling systems do. Another significant benefit is the ability to control the temperature of each individual room through zone control. With a mini-split system, homeowners can control the temperature of each room in their home separately, increasing their comfort and energy savings.

Mini split installation

To install a mini-split system for a homeowner, we would start by conducting an assessment to determine the number of air handlers needed and where they would be installed. Next, we would install the outdoor unit and the necessary tubing between the outdoor unit and the air handlers. We would then make a hole in the wall for each air handler, install them, and connect them to the tubing. Lastly, we would connect the indoor air handlers to a control panel and program the system to suit the homeowner’s desired temperature settings.

When it comes to maintaining a mini-split system, it is essential to schedule yearly maintenance with a professional heating and cooling technician. During yearly maintenance, the technician will inspect and clean the filters, check refrigerant levels, and ensure that the system is working correctly. Homeowners should also make sure that the filters of their mini-split system are clean and replaced as needed. Additionally, it is crucial to keep the area around the outdoor unit clear of debris such as leaves and branches to ensure proper airflow.

Why it matters

In conclusion, a mini-split system is an excellent option for homeowners who are interested in an energy-efficient and customizable heating and cooling system. As heating and cooling professionals, we provide numerous installation and maintenance services when it comes to mini-split systems. By understanding what mini-split systems do, their benefits and features, and how to install and maintain them, homeowners can make an informed decision about whether this type of system is right for them. Overall, taking proper care of a mini-split system can help ensure it remains efficient and effective for years to come.
