Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Mini-Split Heating and Cooling System 

At Snug Planet, we consider ourselves ductless heating and cooling experts. You may have heard of ductless split-system air conditioners and heat pumps. They go by many names including mini-splits, mini-split heat pump, split-ductless, split-zoning, and variable refrigerant flow. These systems are air conditioners or heat pumps that do not use ductwork to distribute air and are a super-efficient way to heat and cool your home. They are a great solution for sunrooms, additions, and bonus rooms.  If you're looking to reduce your use of electric baseboard, oil, or propane, a ductless mini-split heat pump may be a great solution for you.  If you're building a new house, ductless mini-split heat pumps offer a fossil-free alternative to a central heating system.

How does a Ductless Heating and Cooling System Work?

Ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems are made up of four components: The condensing unit, located outside the building; the indoor unit, or units, which can be wall-mounted, suspended from the ceiling, or mounted in the ceiling; refrigerant lines, which connect the outdoor unit to the indoor unit; and a hand-held wireless remote or wall monitor that controls the entire system. This lets you control the temperature within any space that has an indoor unit installed. This gives you energy savings because you have the ability to heat or cool the spaces you use and not have to keep unoccupied spaces conditioned. This means you will save energy and money while staying comfortable year-round.

Modern heat pumps are designed to function in cold climates, maintaining full heat output at temperatures well below 0 F. They are an extremely efficient way to heat using electricity. For each unit of electricity used to run a heat pump, the system can product 3-4 units of useful heat. That makes them 3-4 times more efficient than electric baseboard or space heaters! They are also 2-3 times more efficient at cooling than window air conditioners and are much quieter.
