Homeowner Guide

With this guide, we will take you through everything you need to know about mini split ductless heating and cooling systems. From how they work, the benefits, and the installation process, we have got you covered.

What is a Mini Split Ductless System ? 

A mini split ductless heating and cooling system is a type of HVAC system that does not require ductwork to cool or heat your home. Unlike traditional HVAC systems, which use ducts to distribute air, mini split ductless systems use an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units to deliver air directly to specific areas in your home.

Mini Split Ductless System

How It Works

The indoor units are usually mounted on walls or ceilings and are connected to the outdoor unit by a small conduit that contains a power cable, refrigerant tubing, and a condensate drain. The outdoor unit houses the compressor, which is responsible for pumping the refrigerant through the system.

Control the temperature in each room independently

The mini split ductless heating and cooling system has a thermostat that allows you to control the temperature in each room independently. This means that you can choose which rooms to heat or cool, making it a cost-effective solution for homeowners who want to save on energy bills.

Types of Mini Split Ductless Heating & Cooling Systems:

As a Seattle area homeowner, you understand the importance of having a comfortable living space, especially during extreme weather. However, the traditional HVAC systems have some limitations that may not meet all your needs. Luckily, mini split ductless heating and cooling systems have emerged as a versatile solution to these challenges.

Single-Zone Mini Split Ductless System

A single-zone mini split ductless system consists of one outdoor unit and one indoor unit. It is ideal for homeowners who want to heat or cool a single room or area in their home.

Multi-Zone Mini Split Ductless System

A multi-zone mini split ductless system consists of one outdoor unit and multiple indoor units. It is ideal for homeowners who want to heat or cool multiple rooms or areas in their home independently.

Ceiling Cassette Mini Split Ductless System

A ceiling cassette mini split ductless system is designed to be installed in the ceiling. It is ideal for homeowners who want to heat or cool a room without having an indoor unit mounted on the wall.

Floor-Mounted Mini Split Ductless System

A floor-mounted mini split ductless system is designed to be installed on the floor. It is ideal for homeowners who want to heat or cool a room without mounting the indoor unit on the wall or ceiling.

Benefits of Mini-Split Ductless

By the end of this guide, you will have all the necessary information to make an informed decision on whether a mini split ductless heating and cooling system is the right choice for your home.

Let’s dive in!

1. Energy Efficiency

Mini split ductless heating and cooling systems are more energy-efficient than traditional HVAC systems. This is because they do not require ductwork, which can lead to energy loss due to leaks and poor insulation. Additionally, the ability to control the temperature in each room independently means that you can avoid heating or cooling rooms that are not in use, saving you money on energy bills.

  1. Easy Installation

The installation process for mini split ductless heating and cooling systems is straightforward and does not require extensive construction work. Unlike traditional HVAC systems that require ductwork installation, mini split ductless systems only require a small conduit to connect the indoor and outdoor units. This means that you can have the system installed quickly and with minimal disruption to your home.

  1. Versatility

Mini split ductless heating and cooling systems are versatile and can be used in a variety of settings, including homes, offices, and commercial buildings. They are also suitable for areas where traditional HVAC systems are not feasible, such as historic homes or buildings with limited space for ductwork installation.

Thoroughly impressed and so glad we went with Glendale Heating & Air — professional, capable, and efficient with the best customer experience so far. (Will update post install) I have been working with Debra to coordinate our furnace update (30+ yrs old Lennox originally installed by Glendale and running great!) and heat pump install… as well as additional air return, air quality monitor and custom filtering solution. She has been extremely responsive, professional and efficient with my time, needs and budget. All other on-site quotes I got took 2-3 hours of my time with a pressure to commit to a $17-30k purchase and disastrous follow-ups (even from “A” rated companies)… while Debra was knowledge, provided great advice, was in and out in under 30 minutes and emailed me a detailed estimate the next day! I just wish all businesses could be so professional, personable, efficient and cost effective as Glendale! It’s the professional & hustle service I learned in my youth in construction with my father, still do today, and appreciate from others.

Glendale Heating was just great! Our 50+ year-old gas furnace finally bit the dust and left us with no heat in January. Glendale responded quickly with a reasonable estimate. No up-selling, no issues. A replacement furnace needed. Luckily the weather cooperated and space heaters kept us comfortable until the installation team came. They were very efficient, making their way through our messy, unfinished basement in our 100+ year old house. They arrived at 9am and our new furnace was up and running at 4pm when they left. It's been about a month ago now and everything works perfectly. I just can't say enough good things about Glendale Heating. Fair price. Pleasant, happy, professional installers doing great work.

Seamless service from office to estimate to furnace installation. Staff was courteous, knowledgeable and professional.
We purchased our home in Kent back in 2019 and really wanted to have AC installed after the large heat waves that hit Washington the last few summers. We got 3 quotes and Glendale was priced right in the middle of their competitors and seemed very knowledgeable when giving the quote. They were also the company listed on my furnace, and that has been running like a champ for 23 years so figure they do good work! And since they were already doing the AC, I asked them to replace the furnace anyways just since it was getting old and they were already here. I was not disappointed. Riley and Ray did great clean work on the two day job. They communicated every step of the way and asked questions on my preferences. They were by the books, pulling needed permits, etc to do the job right. I highly recommend Glendale heating!
