What Is a Ductless Mini-Split?
A ductless mini-split is a smaller version of a split air conditioning system, with a condenser unit outside and an evaporator indoors. Unlike a standard central air conditioning system, which has one evaporator that serves the entire home through a system of air ducts, a ductless mini-split features one or more air handlers with their own evaporator for independent temperature control in each room that has one installed.
How Do Ductless Mini-Split Systems Work?
In the summer, ductless mini-splits use the evaporator coil to absorb heat from your home and transfer it outside, similar to a standard air conditioner, except that there is one evaporator for each room. A phase-changing refrigerant is used to carry heat to the condenser unit, using a compressor to increase the temperature and pressure for better cooling as the refrigerant passes through the condenser coils. Once the heat is shed to the outdoors, the refrigerant passes through the expansion valve and back into the evaporators to absorb more heat.
In the winter, the process can be reversed to absorb heat from the outside air and bring it inside. By moving heat from one place to another, instead of generating it, a ductless HVAC system can heat farm more efficiently than other HVAC solutions.

What To Expect During Ductless Mini-Split Installation
Installing ductless mini-splits is relatively simple. Still, a professional HVAC contractor’s eye for detail is necessary to ensure the system is installed properly.
During your mini-split system installation, your Jacob Heating & Air Conditioning technician can point out the main components of your new system, such as:
Compressor, which helps run the air conditioning system
Condensing coil, which cycles hot refrigerant and turns high-pressure gas into a high-pressure liquid
Fan, which draws air through the condensing coil in order to transfer stored heat energy outside
Lineset, which connects the indoor and outdoor units and carries refrigerant between these components
After installation, your ductless mini-split system will pump heated or cooled refrigerant as needed to heat or cool its designated areas. Controlling the temperature is simple; you may even be able to regulate the temperature wirelessly. Our technicians can even help design an adaptive, multi-room cooling system.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I add a ductless HVAC to my existing system?
Yes, if your current air conditioning system is older and cannot keep up, or you have expanded your living space with a new addition, a ductless mini-split can be used to complement your existing HVAC system.
Can I heat and cool my entire home with a ductless HVAC system?
Yes, there are ductless HVAC systems that are designed to heat just one or two rooms, as well as systems that are sized for an entire home. These will feature larger condenser units that are compatible with multiple indoor air handlers.
How long will my ductless mini-split last?
Most ductless AC units will last 12 to 15 years with proper maintenance. Higher quality units may last up to 20 years before they need to be replaced, but improvements in efficiency may make upgrading earlier a cost-effective choice if monthly utility costs will be significantly lower.
Are ductless HVAC systems more expensive?
For a large, multi-room system, ductless mini-splits will be more expensive per ton than a traditional HVAC system, but much of that initial cost will be earned back though lower heating and cooling costs over the life of the system.
What are the advantages of a ductless system?
Without energy-wasting air ducts, ductless mini-splits use less energy and will cost less to heat and cool your home than a traditional system. They are also quieter, and they have great features like remote controls, timers, and individual controls in each room for multi-room systems.
