4 Spots for a Ductless Mini Split
A ductless mini-split, or heat pump, is a great cooling and heating option for many homeowners. This unit provides an efficient and powerful way to manage your home comfort. While they don’t fit in every situation, they can make a great addition to the right home.
Ductless mini-splits allow you to cool your home in the summer and warm it in the winter. Instead of using a single unit with a duct system to distribute air, the unit releases warm or cool air at a single location.
Here are some of the most popular locations in your home to put a ductless mini-split.
A garage is a great place to put a mini-split, especially if you like to work in there or are storing items that need to be climate controlled. Also, if you have a detached garage, you won’t be able to connect your central air system, if you have one, to the detached structure.
2. Home Extension
When you add or extend a room in your home, you’ll need to decide how you will keep it comfortable. You can either add ductwork and connect the extension to your existing central air system, or you can install a ductless mini-split. This is much easier than extending ductwork, as a technician will only need to drill a small hole through the wall to connect the indoor and outdoor units.
Whether or not your basement is finished, you probably spend some time in there either organizing, working, or just hanging out. A ductless mini-split is a great addition to your basement because you can choose to only flip it on when the room is being occupied.
A shed is another great place to use a ductless mini-split. Many people perform outdoor work with the help of a shed, and many have even created a shed dedicated to crafting, building, and other hobbies. If you spend a lot of time in your shed and need temperature control, a ductless mini-split is the perfect option!
