The standard way of distributing heated and cooled air throughout a building is with a network of ducts. These ducts hook up to the cabinet with the air conditioner and/or heater, where a large blower fan sends the air into the air channels and then to the vents that open onto the rooms. However, this is not the only way to have central heating and cooling. Ductless mini splits, used for years in businesses, are now a popular choice for residential comfort as well. As the name implies, they don’t use ductwork at all in their operation, which has a number of advantages.

How Ductless Mini Splits Work
A ductless split system is similar in many ways to a traditional heat pump: refrigerant circulates between indoor and outdoor units, absorbing thermal energy from one location and releasing it in another. Depending on how you set the system, it can either heat or cool your building.
But the difference between a standard heat pump and a Mitsubishi ductless mini split is that a ductless system doesn’t use a single indoor cabinet connected to ducts. Instead, it uses a series of mini air handlers mounted on the walls of rooms. Each air handler contains a refrigerant coil and blower fan. Refrigerant from the outdoor unit runs through the coil, and the blower then sends out the conditioned air directly into the room—no ductwork required.
The Benefits of a Mitsubishi Ductless Mini Split
At A&E Heating & Air, Inc., we install high–quality Mitsubishi ductless mini splits for homes and businesses. These are among the best on the market. They offer some important advantages over traditional heat pumps that use ducts:
- Energy efficiency: Ductless mini splits do not lose or gain heat through the walls of ducts, which helps keep them energy–efficient. The smaller blower units also consume less power than the larger one used in a traditional heat pump. You can expect lower energy bills with an efficient Mitsubishi ductless mini split working for you.
- Better air quality: Ducts can collect a large amount of dust and other debris. This ends up blown out into the living and working spaces each time the AC or heater comes on. Ductless mini splits don’t have this problem, and the result in cleaner indoor air quality.
- Zone control: The air handlers work separately from each other, so you only have to heat or cool the areas that need it. This will help provide even comfort, and will save additional money.
