What is a Mini-Split System?
A mini-split HVAC system is essentially a ductless air conditioner. The mini-splits link HVAC units in individual rooms to the compressor which is installed outside. Interior units are equipped with evaporator coils and refrigerant. When warm air passes by the coils, it’s absorbed and the refrigerant sends the warm air out to the exterior unit. As you may have already guessed, this system makes “zoning” a breeze because you can adjust the temperature in each room. Some benefits of a mini-split system include:
- Doesn’t require ductwork
- Unobtrusive installation
- Blends into environment
- Energy efficient
- Full control over every room’s temperature
Mini-split systems are great for homes that are currently using hydronic (hot water heat), space heaters (kerosene, propane, or wood), or radiant panels (infrared heaters).
Can you leave a mini-split system on all the time?
Most of us have been trained to turn off the air when we’re not home to save energy, but that’s not at all necessary with a mini-split system. You can adjust the temperature in your home as often as you like, but the system performs better when it runs continuously. It may seem counterintuitive but if you stop turning your ductless HVAC system on and off, your home’s temperature will stay consistent and you’ll waste less energy. Your mini-split system can also make heating and cooling decisions for you to maximize personal comfort while keeping your energy bill low.
The only problem you should be aware of is that mini-split systems don’t operate well in extreme cold. In Texas, that’s generally not a huge problem. But once you see freezing temperatures, an economy-level mini-split HVAC system could actually stop working. However, if that’s a concern, you can also ask your Superior AC HVAC technician about mid-level mini splits and low ambient mini-split systems that continue to perform in cooler temperatures.
Ductless HVAC Systems vs. Central Air
Mini-split systems don’t need any ductwork to function. This improves energy efficiency since about 30% of your home’s air leaks out of faulty ductwork. That’s a lot of wasted energy and a big utility cost that could’ve been avoided with a ductless HVAC system. Unfortunately, central air systems need all of those ducts to cool your home efficiently. Homeowners that opt for central heating will likely lose a lot more money over the years than someone who invested in a mini-split system.
Simultaneous Heating and Cooling
With just one outdoor unit, you can heat and cool up to eight rooms individually. That way your home will be the perfect temperature for everyone that lives there. Your kids’ rooms can stay nice and cool while they wind down after their big game while your bedroom stays warm and cozy as you drift off to sleep. Regardless of your family’s preferences, this keeps everyone comfortable and helps you avoid daily battles over the temperature.
