What are some benefits and advantages of ductless mini splits?
While there are numerous benefits to the ductless mini split system, there are four benefits that stand out from the rest.This includes:
- Easy zoning
- Small unit size
- Easy installation
- Energy savings
Because the system allows for indoor units to be placed in several rooms throughout the home, it is easier to zone airflow to keep the whole house comfortably cool. Also, because the indoor units are so small, they can be installed virtually anywhere, even in the ceiling.
How much can you save with these units?
Energy savings vary from home to home, so there is no exact number to assign to savings with this unit. However, it is estimated that 30% of cooled air is lost in the duct system. However, removing this duct system and delivering cooled air directly, you can assume that your air conditioning portion of your energy bill will be reduced by at least 30%.

What are some common problems experienced with this unit?
Just as with all large home appliances, the ductless mini split AC system comes with its own set of problems. The most common problems associated with the system include:
- Remote control failure
As with any air conditioner, the coils that cool the air can sometimes cause the unit to freeze. Alternatively, the unit can break down from overheating. This is usually caused by debris entering the system.
The remote control is an extra piece of technology that sometimes just stops working. There is a reset button on the remote for these occasions, but sometimes it is a little bit more complicated than that.
What are some easy ways you can maintain your unit for maximum efficiency?
Maximum efficiency is reached in a ductless mini split system by keeping it clean, away from debris, and close to a run-off system for condensation. Cleanliness is really the most important thing you can do to prevent it from overheating. You can even turn off the outdoor unit and spray it with a garden hose.
