Ductless Mini Splits

Ductless mini-split heat pumps (mini splits) make good retrofit add-ons to homes with "non-ducted" heating systems, such as hot water heat, radiant panels, and space heaters (wood or propane). They can also be a good choice for room additions where extending or installing ductwork is not viable and are very efficient for new homes that require only a small space conditioning system.The main advantages of mini splits are their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. Also unlike window-mounted room air conditioners, ductless mini spits are much safer in a home with small children.


The cost of installing mini splits can be higher than some systems, although lower operating costs and rebates or other financial incentives can help offset the initial expense.
