How Do Mini-Splits Work?

A mini-split air conditioning system or heat pump has two parts: an outdoor compressor unit and one (or more) indoor units. The two units are connected by a dedicated refrigerant line made of insulated copper tubing threaded through holes drilled behind the indoor units. Electricity from the outdoor unit powers a fan in the indoor unit, which sends cooled air into the room (or area). At the same time, warm air is removed from the space and sent to the outdoor unit.

Mini-Split System Installation

Mini-splits boast easy installation in most cases, with minimal drilling. The indoor unit can be installed high on a wall or even on the ceiling. And the outdoor unit can usually be placed in an inconspicuous spot on your property.

Mini-split AC units are perfect for:

  • Older or historic homes
  • Apartments and condos
  • Additions and home extensions
  • Hot spots in your home
  • Guest houses and pool houses
  • And more!

Benefits of Ductless Mini-Splits

By installing a ductless mini-split in your Hamel, Illinois area home, you will receive many benefits including:

  • Energy savings – Instead of cooling your entire home, you can cool specific areas that need air conditioning. Each mini-split AC unit can be controlled by its own thermostat!
  • Design flexibility – Unlike installing a central air conditioning system, no major renovation is involved when installing mini-split AC systems. The team at Ernst Heating & Cooling can help you determine the best location for your new unit.
  • Efficiency – Mitsubishi mini-split systems have SEERs (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios) of up to 22. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the system. Most traditional AC units have a SEER of around 13. And since no ductwork is involved, there is no risk of energy loss through ducts.
  • Home security – While a through-the-wall or window-mounted AC unit leaves your home vulnerable to intruders, there is no way that a criminal could enter your home through the small hole a ductless air conditioning unit requires for installation.

Why Choose a Ductless Mini-Split System?

Mini-split systems direct heating or cooling to one room or small area of your home. Mini-split systems are a smart choice for homes or parts of homes that don’t have an existing duct system. They are ideal for use in entire homes or room additions as an alternative to adding or extending ductwork. And, with a ductless mini-split system, you can keep the most-used areas of your home cool while saving energy on cooling less-used parts of your home—each system can have up to four indoor units.

Many homeowners use mini-splits to cool their entire homes! They can also be used on a smaller scale to cool home offices, sunrooms, and home gyms.
