Ductless Heating Systems Ductless heating and ductless air conditioning are two sides of the same coin. A ductless heating system, also called a ductless mini-split, is one of the fastest growing technologies in the heating and air conditioning space. Ductless heating systems work very similarly to conventional heat pumps. Both types of heating have an outside unit (this is the actual heat pump) as well as indoor unit called an air handler. With a conventional heat pump, the air handler usually resides on in the basement or attic and blows the hot air around the house via a network of ducts. With ductless mini-splits, the air handler portion is designed to be a lot smaller, hence the term mini-split. So small, in fact, that the entire unit can be hung unobtrusively on a wall. The warm air doesn’t have to come through a network of ducts in order to reach its target room. The mini-split simply blows warm air right into the room where it is installed. Not only is this convenient, it’s efficient. Not sold yet? Here’s another bonus. All new models of ductless mini-splits provide heating and cooling. This is a nice little feature, whether you decide to use it as a main source of heating and cooling, to supplement your existing heating and cooling system, or as an emergency back-up in case your primary source of heat or A/C fails. No matter what you decide, it’s nice to have options. We are an official Mitsubishi dealer, installer, and service company. We also service and install many other makes and models of ductless mini-split systems. As always, all estimates are free of charge.
