Pros Of A Mini-Split System

A mini-split can be used to retrofit existing constructions. They also don’t require expensive duct work. They are much simpler to set up than traditional HVAC systems, and can produce more conditioned air. According to Tim De Stasio, president of Southern Comfort Consulting and Service of Greensboro, North Carolina, “ductwork loses heat, especially in attics, and here in the South our attics can get up to 150 degrees.” This is not to say installation is simple, however Another appealing factor about a mini-split is a lot of flexibility in sizing the system to your needs. It consists of one outdoor condenser as well as the individual-controlled indoor units that deliver air. At most, you will have two of them (or maybe four). These are connected via a refrigerant/drain line. The sizes of indoor units can vary depending upon the requirements. They’re usually mounted high up on walls and the equivalent size to a long duffelbag. A few indoor units are able to be recessed in a ceiling or mounted directly on the ground. While ceiling units look more discreet than the floor models, they can also be installed more easily. You can make an outdoor unit as small and compact as you like, however, the unit must support more indoor units. Smith explained that you can leave some extra space on your outdoor unit if you need to care for more rooms.

These mini-splits can also be programmed to control the temperature. Most models detect whether someone is there and adjust the temperature. You can then direct the air to your preferred direction. Wireless remotes and wall-mounted controls are standard features on most models. Most can be controlled from a smartphone or integrated in larger systems, such as Nest or Alexa.

We’ve tested a few standalone devices that act as thermostats for the individual rooms where the indoor units live.

Why Not Just Get A Window Unit Or Portable Ac?

A mini-split offers greater comfort than the less expensive options of treating one room with window ACs and portable ACs. For one, mini-splits are much quieter. With the system split between an indoor and outdoor unit, the only noise in the room is the fan needed to move air. This system does not produce that loud compressor hum you would expect from an outdoor unit. A majority of mini-split systems are equipped with variable-speed compressors. This is similar to whole-house system’s. De Stasio explained, “On a mild day, a mini-split will actually run on a slower speed than on a hot day and save you energy, where a window unit will just come on and off on and off.” He added that this constant cycling of the window unit “consume[s] a massive amount of energy.” He explained: “Think of it like trying to push a car from a dead stop to 5 mph versus pushing it as it’s already rolling forward. The one that uses the most energy is which. What one consumes more energy?

Due to the fact that it is constructed differently, a minisplit can be comparable in efficiency with window units. Smith of Mitsubishi Electric explained to us that the two parts of a minisplit are located within the AC housing. They are an evaporator as well as a condenser. “Those two parts of that system have been separated by a thin wall. That thin wall isn’t doing a great deal of heat energy out.” Smith from Mitsubishi Electric explained how a mini split disperses the air better than window units or portable ACs. Smith said, “When you try to blow cool water into a hot area, it will fall. A window unit can have a harder time driving the cool air around the room due to the location of its window.” The mini-split, which is usually mounted on the wall or in the ceiling, has the ability to distribute the air in a sweep motion, moving up and down or directed at a wall if needed.

A mini-split does not occupy any room’s electricity outlet and doesn’t affect the operation of your windows. A window AC completely blocks a good chunk of the window, obviously. Portable ACs can also occupy large portions of windows by making the window close to the vent hose hardware. This allows heat to escape outside.

The Cons of A Mini-Split Systems

It isn’t cheap to install mini-splits. De Stasio stated that a standard single-unit installation costs between $3,000 and $5,000. However, if your goal is to build a full-house system with several indoor units in addition to an outside unit it may become costly. One-zone Mitsubishi Electric systems were installed by a Los Angeles friend for $4,500. This included an indoor unit and a single outdoor unit. For his entire residence, a friend of mine in Hawaii purchased a Mitsubishi Electric system consisting of four indoor units. It cost just $17,000. It’s quite expensive, but still affordable. The best portables and window units range in price from $200-$700 each.

You also have to commit to a location with the indoor units, and there’s no moving them around, like with window air conditioners or portable ACs. The pipes should be buried behind the unit and run through the wall. Depending on how the wall is constructed, this may cause the unit to be off-center on the wall, which you may not want. We spoke with one mini-split owner who said that it was a mistake. One mini-split owner we spoke to said that the unit was too close to his bedroom’s sidewall. This is because the coupling couldn’t be accessed without the unit being placed where it should be. You get a rectangle-shaped unit, or as the owner said, “a huge stupid plastic giant lunchbox thing” on your wall. LG is one of these manufacturers. An alternative is to install the units in recessing holes in your ceiling. The installation of a ceiling will require more work and be more expensive.

Even in extremely cold temperatures, mini-splits might not work well. Mitsubishi Electric says that its best systems will operate at 100% up to 23 degrees Celsius outside. It can even work at 75 percent in negative 13. This is something you should consider when setting up your system.

A related (more avoidable) downside is winding up with a system that feels undersized for your needs, even in less extreme weather, which happened to our LA friend. For safety reasons, an installer may suggest a larger outside unit. It can provide the ability to service multiple indoor units. However, the cost can add up quickly and it may be tempting to use the smallest equipment. It could lead to system failure if it is too weak. According to her, the temperature must reach 90 degrees in order for the unit to feel comfortable. “And then it takes me all day to keep it cool.” For the 230-volt service of our 5-zone unit, our friend in Hawaii needed a dedicated 40A breaker. The installation crew employed an electrician subcontractor to save money.

The Ultimate Mini Split Buyer’S Guide

How to Choose the Perfect Mini Split. Installing a mini split in your home can be one of the most rewarding decisions that you will ever make.

These devices are discreet, quiet and most importantly, efficient in controlling the temperature of any house. This article will help you select the most effective strategy for your home. We also provide all the links you need to get the necessary equipment.

What exactly is a Mini Split, and how can it help you?

Because of their unique split design, the ductless mini Split system has been a popular choice for comfort solutions in many HVAC installations all over the world.

These mini splits consist of an outdoor unit combined with one or more indoor devices. They are ideal for any type of application because they have a ductless design that allows them to be compact and flexible.

A mini-split can be used in areas that have been under-served or in garages. Mini Splits will work in historic homes, even if there is no ductwork.

A mini split unit can produce sound levels as quiet as a whisper, even with low sound ratings at as low 19 dB. This means your mini split will not only be unobtrusive, but you may even forget it’s running at all.

Mini splits increase energy efficiency and save money. They combine multiple energy-saving technologies so that your home is always comfortable. Condensers driven by inverter technology reduce waste and deliver the exact amount of heat or cool needed to maintain your home’s comfort. This helps minimize energy consumption.

Compared to conventional central-air equipment, mini splits use advanced control algorithms, intelligently-designed heat exchangers, and inverter-driven compressors to save you 30% or more on energy bills and achieve incredible efficiency ratings over 28 SEER.

Inverter-technology mini splits are much more efficient and keep temperatures more constant than traditional HVAC systems.

Negatives

Their primary drawback is the high price. They cost from about $1,500 up to $2,000 for a ton (2,000 Btu an hour) of cooling power. The cost is approximately 30% higher than central systems without ductwork and could be double that of windows units with comparable capacity.

It is important that the indoor units are correctly measured and that they be placed in the most suitable location. Oversized or incorrectly located air-handlers often result in short-cycling, which wastes energy and does not provide proper temperature or humidity control. A system that is too large can also be more costly to purchase and maintain.

The indoor portion of the system may be too obtrusive for some people. They are more discreet than an air conditioner for windows, but they don’t have the same look as a central unit. Condensate must be removed from the outside unit.

However, it has been shown that mini-split installation can also have serious “leaks” as long line sets on the outside of the house can pick up heat in the summer and lose heat in the winter. It can cause significantly higher energy costs than one would have expected, despite the fact that the system is rated at a high efficiency. Sep 28, 2016,
