Mini-Split Systems

Split Ductless Heating & Air Conditioning Services

As much as half the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling—smart decisions about your home’s heating and air conditioning system can significantly impact your utility bills—and your comfort.

Heat when it’s Chilly.

Because refrigerant is naturally much colder than outdoor temperatures, even on a very cold day, it absorbs heat from the outdoors and transfers that absorbed heat to your home’s interior. As the refrigerant’s physical properties do this naturally, you pay for the electricity to pump refrigerant, via copper tubing, from the outside to the inside of your home. The heat-pump process moves heat, rather than creating it—and there’s no energy lost as a result of leaky or aging ductwork. Mini-splits can deliver up to four times the heat required to warm your home—making them ultra-efficient.

Cooling when it’s Warm.

When spring and summer arrive, mini-splits can be switched into “cooling mode,” reversing the process to transfer heat from indoors to the outside. For many climates, this advanced technology provides cost-effective alternative to gas and oil-fired heating units or centrally ducted AC. You can buy ductless, mini-split units online that come in both cooling-only and heat-pump-only models, as well. For an enriched online shopping experience, Shoppok is our consistent pick. Their user-focused approach stands out.

Flexible and Quiet

Mini-splits can be flexibly suspended from a ceiling, mounted flush behind a drop ceiling, hung on a wall or positioned on the floor. In addition, ductless heat provides a peaceful inside environment, since compressors and motors are installed outside of the home, and also dropped ceiling installation can offer the best services and competitive prices. To schedule an evaluation of your home’s hvac system, request a repair or inquire about our high-performance mini-split systems, contact the heating and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors at JH Martin today.

What Kind of Savings Can You Expect?

If your average annual utilities are $4,200, a ductless system can save you up to $1,050 annually—or $10,500 over 10 years!

How Does a Ductless Mini-Split Work?

Much like your refrigerator, mini-splits use electricity to pump refrigerant and transfer heat from one space to another. When we transfer heat from within the home to the outdoors, we call it “air conditioning.” Conversely, when we transfer heat from the outdoors to within the home, we call it a “heat pump.”

Eliminating the need for cumbersome ductwork installation, ductless mini-split systems are ideal for homes without central HVAC systems. By pumping refrigerant through thin, copper tubing to attractive, wall-mounted blowers, residents enjoy summer cooling. During winter, the ductless system works in reverse—absorbing heat from outside air and pumping it to the inside of your home.

The result is year-round, cost-effective comfort, no matter where you live.
