If your home lacks the required space for bulky ductwork or has a boiler heating system a ductless mini-split system is a good choice. These systems offer extremely flexible design options from flush-mounted cassette heads, forced air, and high wall units while having a minimal impact on space. Not only can you control each room via its own individual thermostat, but you’re also reducing your energy output by heating or cooling only the rooms and areas you want. Vectra Mechanical Residential and Commercial HVAC specialize in refrigerant piping installation so you can rest assured that no matter the configuration, we have the experience to provide a quality installation.
Unlike a traditional furnace or forced air system, mini-split systems do not require any ductwork. The split system includes a heat pump (outside) and a secondary unit called an air handler (inside). The air handler is mounted indoors on a wall, ceiling or attic and individually feeds specific areas of the home via fans. Depending on the model of ductless mini-split system you choose for your home, you can have up to eight air handlers installed, each with their own temperature controls and thermostat. These systems are great in the retrofit application where space is of a minimum. Paired with a solar system, electric heat pumps can be extremely efficient.
When it comes to ductless technologies a proper installation is imperative to ensure reliable and efficient space conditioning.
