Ductless Mini-Split Heating Systems in Greater Phoenix & Scottsdale, AZ

If you’re looking for a more economical heating solution than a standard HVAC system, a ductless mini-split heat system is just what you need. Not only is the price lower than conventional HVAC systems, but a ductless system also has a bevy of benefits that you may find irresistible as a homeowner. There’s also the fact that you can seamlessly switch between heating and air conditioning – perfect for the hot and dry Arizona weather!

What is a Ductless Mini-Split System?

A ductless heating system operates without the use of any ducts, which means you don’t have to pay more just to have ductwork installed in your home. This cuts down on the expenses that you would be paying for renovations or duct replacement.

Instead, ductless HVAC systems are made up of two separate components – and indoor unit and an outdoor unit –  that are connected to each other through a refrigerant line and connecting ceiling or wall. This setup makes ductless mini-split systems perfect for small homes or offices that don’t need centralized climate control and they are the perfect choice for temperature zoning and providing heat to just one or a few rooms.

How does a Ductless Mini-Split System Work?

How it works is simple: the outdoor unit takes in heat from outside through a series of evaporator coils that contains refrigerant. This refrigerant is normally at a very low temperature, acting as a natural sponge for heat.

Once the refrigerant has absorbed enough heat, it pushes hot air out through a narrow series of piping connected to the indoor unit. The indoor unit then vents the heat that the refrigerant has accumulated into the room, raising the temperature while simultaneously cooling the refrigerant to its normal state.

If you want to use your ductless mini-split system to cool your property, the process works the same way but reversed. For air conditioning, the indoor unit absorbs the heat from within the home and directs it to the outdoor unit to be forced out.

The Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split System

What makes ductless mini-split heating systems a superior choice over conventional heating solutions is not just because it’s more affordable or because it barely takes up any space, but it’s much more energy-efficient than other HVAC systems. Because it takes heat from the environment rather than generating heat on its own, ductless mini-split systems use less energy to provide heat. This, of course, results in savings and reduced carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions.

This particular feature also translates into the ductless mini-split system being much safer than other heating systems, especially those that require fuel or gas. A breakdown or malfunction of your ductless HVAC system will only make it stop working, without creating a fire risk or hazard.
