An Overview of Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Ductless mini-split systems operate in essentially the same way as traditional central heating and cooling systems. The system itself comprises two parts: an indoor unit that is mounted on the wall inside your home and an outdoor unit that is placed outside near your house. The indoor unit, also called the evaporator, is connected to the outdoor unit, known as the condenser unit, with copper tubing and electrical wiring. A refrigerant line also runs from the condenser unit to the evaporator. The entire system only requires one, three-inch hole to be drilled into the wall, making this a very minimally invasive alternative to full ductwork installation.

Duct-free heating and cooling systems make your home’s individual rooms or other small spaces more comfortable. Remember, just like whole-home systems, the higher the SEER and HSPF ratings, the more efficient they will be.

Ductless Mini-Split or Forced-Air HVAC System?

What’s best for you: a forced-air HVAC system or a ductless mini-split? Most homes in the Inland Empire have a forced-air HVAC system. Some homes weren’t designed with air ducts in mind, though. Or running air ducts to a new home may not be feasible or cost-effective. If you find yourself with any of these concerns, we have a solution for you. Steve’s Five Star Service specializes in working with ductless HVAC systems.

For systems that provide both heating and cooling (known as heat pumps), this process is essentially reversed when the heat function is being used. Warm air is drawn from outside and sent to the indoor unit where it can be distributed throughout your home.
