How Do Ductless Mini Split Heat Pumps Work?

A ductless mini-split heat pump is extremely efficient. They consist of two main components: an outside compressor/condenser unit and an indoor air handling unit.

The indoor unit/units are connected to walls in rooms or “zones” in your home that you want air conditioning. Because no ductwork is involved in a ductless mini-split system, these indoor units are connected to the outside condenser via a refrigerant line.

Typically, homes have multiple indoor air handling units that are connected to the outdoor unit. Each indoor unit can be controlled separately from the others, so family members can choose the temperature they prefer in their own room. This is different from traditional central indoor air units.

Benefits of Ductless Mini Split Systems

Easy Installation

Since no ductwork or air distribution system is needed with a ductless system, there are few places where these systems cannot be installed.

Easy Maintenance

Many indoor units have washable filters and require only periodical cleaning. Outdoor units are designed for easy access for your contractor for those routine maintenance calls.

Quiet Operation

Indoor units are typically quiet enough for libraries, classrooms, boardrooms, and the most sensitive room in the house, the bedroom. Outdoor units are generally quiet enough to be installed under a window or near a patio, so sleeping or entertaining guests is not disrupted.

Simple Control

They can be controlled by a thermostat or by an infrared remote control, like a TV remote.

Design

Indoor units blend well into interior spaces, and you don’t have to sacrifice a window with window-type air conditioning units.

Common Ductless Mini Split Repairs

Ductless mini-split systems are extremely reliable and efficient, but like all HVAC equipment, they do tend to wear down over time. When this occurs, you need quality repair services from the NATE-certified heating and cooling experts at Rusk. Here are a few signs to look out for that indicate your ductless mini-split system may be in need of repairs.

High Electricity Bills

Have you noticed a sudden spike in your electricity bill? This could potentially indicate several issues with your ductless mini-split heat pump, including a clogged air filter, failing equipment or short cycling. If your ductless mini-split system is more than 12 years old and needs frequent repairs, you might be better off replacing the system.

Grinding Noises

Ductless mini-splits are relatively quiet, so if you notice a grinding noise, call a heating and cooling pro to come out and inspect the unit.

Lack of Cooling

A lack of cooling from your ductless mini-split unit could indicate a clogged or dirty air filter or even a refrigerant leak. There’s a higher chance of refrigerant loss in ductless mini-split systems because they typically have multiple refrigerant lines running to the indoor air handlers. A refrigerant recharge should only be performed by a qualified HVAC repair technician.

Broken Air Handler

If you’re not receiving conditioned air in only one room or zone in your home but the others are fine, you may have a broken air handler, which will need to be repaired or replaced by a quality ductless mini split repair technician.

Leaking Behind the Air Handlers

The job of the condensate drain is to remove water and moisture from the air handler so water doesn’t leak inside your home. If a line starts to leak, it can serious water damage to your walls, which can ultimately cause the air handler to break away from the wall. Contact an HVAC technician immediately for repair services if you notice any moisture or water on the walls near the air handler.
