Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless Mini Splits in Spokane
Mini Splits, Big Impact –Install an Efficient and Effective HVAC Unit Today
If your home operates under a ductless system, a mini split might be right for you. We call these systems “mini splits” due to their small, sleek, and compact appearance. Ductless HVAC systems are growing in popularity throughout Spokane and throughout North America as a whole, and we can understand why. We typically install these types of systems in multifamily housing units or in add-ons to houses with “non-ducted” heating systems, including hydronic heat, space heaters, and radiant panels.
There are two main parts of mini splits: outdoor compressor/condenser and indoor air-handling unit. These two units are linked by a conduit that holds the power cable. The number of handling units in a system varies – some might have up to four indoor handling units per a single outdoor unit. Our team is able to locate the outdoor unit up to 50 feet away from the indoor evaporator. As more homeowners are installing add-ons to their homes, ductless mini splits are making more sense.
One of the biggest benefits of a mini split is that it is able to reduce energy by utilizing only the smallest amount of energy possible while still facilitating maximum comfort levels. The systems use compressors that ramp up or down based on the needs of the room and the preferences of those in the home. Compressors facilitate customizable temperatures and have the ability to detect and facilitate the best power usage for the area.

Why Hire a Professional for a Ductless Mini Split Installation?
In the right situation and the right setup, mini splits can be convenient, comfortable, and save money. They are simple to maintain once they are installed, but there are essential safety measures that need to be implemented during installation and repair processes. When we install a ductless mini split, we must work with refrigerant lines and make high-voltage electrical connections. Some states have actually started to require a qualified third party to guarantee that the system is performing as it is meant to, so hiring a professional for this job like the ones on our team is the safest route to take.
Types of Mini Split Installations
After we determine that a mini split is the best option for you, we will walk you through the types of mini splits available. The types of mini splits we can install include:
- Single-zone ductless mini splits
Single-zone ductless mini splits are ideal for those who need to heat or cool an isolated area. This type of unit uses a single air handler and single condenser unit. They are also the smallest and usually require the simplest installation.
- Dual-zone ductless mini splits
Mini splits are used to heat or cool multiple areas in a home with two air handlers that work through a single condenser unit. This option is ideal for homeowners who need their mini splits to work in multiple areas throughout their home.
- Multi-zone ductless mini splits
Multi-zone ductless mini splits are similar to dual-zone ductless mini splits in the sense that they heat and cool separate spaces. The systems use a condenser unit that is made to accommodate several air handlers. This installation can be a bit complicated, but our team has the knowledge necessary to ensure your system will run properly.
