A ductless mini split (also known as a ductless heat pump or mini-split system) is a great option for heating and cooling spaces where a traditional central HVAC system isn't a practical or even possible option. Ductless systems can be installed easily and quickly, require no ductwork to operate, and cost less than traditional HVAC systems, both in terms of outright installation and operating expenses.

Ductless Mini-Split FAQs

What is a ductless mini-split system?

A ductless mini-split system, also known as a ductless heat pump or mini-split system, is a heating and cooling system that does not require ductwork. It consists of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, which are connected by refrigerant lines. The indoor units are mounted on the wall or ceiling and can be controlled independently, allowing for zoned heating and cooling.

How does a ductless mini-split system work?

A ductless mini-split system works by transferring heat between the indoor and outdoor units using refrigerant. In cooling mode, the indoor unit absorbs heat from the room air and releases it outside. In heating mode, the process is reversed, and the indoor unit extracts heat from the outdoor air and transfers it inside. The temperature can be controlled using a remote or wall-mounted thermostat.

Can a ductless mini-split system be used for both heating and cooling?

Yes, a ductless mini-split system can be used for both heating and cooling. It operates as an air conditioner in the summer, removing heat from the indoor air and releasing it outside. In the winter, it functions as a heat pump, extracting heat from the outdoor air and transferring it inside. This dual functionality makes ductless mini-split systems a versatile solution for year-round comfort.

Can a ductless mini-split system save money on energy bills?

Yes, a ductless mini-split system can save money on energy bills. Due to their energy-efficient operation and zoning capabilities, ductless systems can help reduce energy consumption and lower utility costs. By only heating or cooling the areas that are occupied, you can avoid wasting energy on unoccupied spaces. Additionally, the absence of ductwork eliminates the energy losses associated with leaky ducts.

Ductless Mini Split Installation

Ductless HVAC systems are great if you need to add just one room to your existing central system as they offer flexibility and zoning options. A ductless system is far more affordable than a central HVAC option, and they use far less energy as well, helping keep their costs low. Installation is generally simple too—most systems can be installed in a day, provided there is easy access for a few electrical and refrigerant lines to reach an outdoor compressor unit. 

Ductless heating and cooling systems are ideal for:

  • Finished garages
  • Attics
  • Basements
  • Workshops
  • Studios
  • ADUs

In short, if you need quick installation of heating and cooling in a single area or room without the hassle of installing ductwork or modifying an existing HVAC system, a ductless mini split is the perfect choice. If you’re looking for a licensed, experienced, and trustworthy installer in the Puyallup area, look to Rainier Heating & Cooling.
