You may have resorted to a few creative solutions while trying to keep everyone in your home comfortable all year long, like wearing layers of clothing in one area of the house while cranking up the heat or AC in another. Or perhaps you have plenty of warm air downstairs, but it’s teeth-chattering cold in the bedrooms upstairs.

Before you give your current furnace or central air system the heave-ho or employ even more unique tricks, consider this practical solution – a ductless mini-spit system professionally installed by Zach’s.

What Is a Ductless Mini-Split?

Unlike a traditional HVAC system, a mini-split system can cool and heat a house without the need for ductwork. It consists of one or more combined outdoor compressors and condensers, which feed each indoor air-handling unit with a conduit that operates much like a heat pump. Operated by remote-control and whisper quiet, each indoor unit can be installed in any room where you want individualized temperature control. They can be wall-mounted in rooms where ductwork installation is challenging or simply not possible or in an area where central heating or cooling already exists for an added boost of comfort.

Single-Zone Mini Split System

As the name implies, a single zone system includes a condenser that connects to a single indoor air-handling unit. This is a convenient and affordable option for those who need year-round comfort one room or area of a home, like room addition or converted garage.

Multi-Zone Mini-Split System

Multi-zone systems can handle up to 5 wall-mounted air distribution units and can often cost less than traditional whole-house central air systems to install. Plus, our customers find them a convenient and cost-effective solutions for rooms needing individualized controlled comfort.

Benefits of Mini-Split Systems

Ductless mini-split systems have gained popularity over the years for a multitude of reasons, such as:

• They operate 20 – 6o percent more efficiently than traditional HVAC units. What’s more, they require fewer components to install, resulting in greater ease of installation and system maintenance.
• With easier installation and fewer materials, ductless mini-splits cost up to 50 percent less than traditional central air systems.
• Ductless systems are unobtrusive and offer whisper-quiet operation at the touch of a button.
• If you opt for a whole-house ductless system, you’ll have no air ducts to keep check on, clean, repair, or replace.
