Ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems offer many advantages in both residential and commercial applications. As the name suggests, ductless mini splits deliver conditioned air without using ducts. Just like in a ducted system, an outdoor compressor connects to indoor air handling units. However, rather than an unwieldy system of ducts, the two components are connected by a conduit that carries refrigerant, wiring and condensate tubing. A small hole is drilled through the wall for the conduit to pass through. Installation is quick and easy.
Ductless systems are also called zoned systems because each air handler is individually controlled. In central systems, a thermostat controls temperature in several rooms. In ductless zoned AC systems, each room has its own temperature settings controlled by a remote device. Rooms that are hard to heat or cool can be more precisely controlled, delivering a higher degree of comfort.
Trane offers both single and multiple zone systems. Single zone units provide conditioned air in only one room. Multiple zone units use one compressor to operate up to four air handlers.
Ducted systems typically lose at least 30 percent of conditioned air. In contrast, ductless mini splits have no energy loss. When a room is not in use, the unit can be turned off. Unlike standard systems that run at full power, inverter technology uses energy in response to temperature changes. When more power is needed, the system powers up to provide more heating or cooling. When temperatures are mild, the system operates at lower speeds, using only enough energy to maintain a comfortable indoor environment.
