Because of their high-efficiency levels, reasonable prices and ease of installation, ductless systems are becoming a more popular choice among homeowners.

They can be used in different applications such as:

  • Areas Without Ductwork
  • Home Additions
  • Zoning
  • Home Conversions

If you are in the market for a new HVAC system, a ductless/mini-split surely meets your needs.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your friendly HVAC company in Ramsey MN that offers Lennox ductless systems, one of the best names in home comfort.

What is a Ductless System?

Also known as a mini-split, a ductless system is a heating and cooling solution that allows you to control the temperatures in individual rooms or spaces.

Mini-split systems have two main parts: an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit (evaporator). They can be installed easily, requiring only a three-inch hole through a wall for the conduit; which houses the power and communication cables, copper tubing, and a condensation drain line, linking the outdoor and indoor units.

Who Should Think About Installing Mini-Splits?

Not only are mini-splits a great solution for whole homes or new constructions, but they also make good retrofit add-ons to houses with heating systems that have no ducts, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters (wood, kerosene, propane). They can also be a wise choice for room additions where extending or installing distribution ductwork is impractical, and energy-efficient new homes that require only a small space conditioning system.

Benefits of Ductless Systems

Since mini-splits do not require ducts to move air, you will get rid of energy losses related to central forced air systems that use ductwork. This helps you save money on energy and do your part in helping the environment.

Most ductless mini-split systems are heat pumps, just like the Lennox MLA Mini-Split. This means they can both heat and cool your home, eliminating the need for a separate heater. 

Ductless systems use a refrigerant called R410A, which is known for its zero ozone exhaustion potential. A home with a ductless system installed has less impact on the environment throughout its life cycle.

In addition, certain ductless air conditioners and heat pumps are ENERGY STAR® rated which may qualify for federal and state tax incentives as well as local utility rebates.
