Ductless Mini Split Installation
Mini split ACs contain the latest in advanced technology that makes them ideal to install in places where traditional HVAC systems do not perform well (think hot or cold spots in your home, most often upstairs or downstairs) or when there is no existing ductwork. Running ductwork to new areas is often time intensive and costly. Ductless mini-split units are much more efficient than their standard heating and air counterparts and can reach all the way up to 28 SEER+ efficiency, meaning they are less expensive to operate. Mini-split heat pumps have been rapidly rising in popularity in the Cincinnati area in the past few years. Quality Comfort is proud to be an LG Excellence Air Conditioning Contractor and install the LG brand of mini split air conditioning/heat pump units as well as the Mitsubishi brand of heating and cooling products.
Most often mini split AC’s are ductless. They can be single zone (one indoor unit matching up or one outdoor unit), or multi-zone with 2 – 8 indoor units fed from a single outdoor unit.
Because they can be effectively zoned, and because there is no typical ductwork, according to the US Department of Energy ductless systems can be 30% more efficient for both heating and air conditioning. In the past, it was thought that heat pumps were not effective when outdoor temperatures got colder, but that is no longer the case. New mini-split heat pumps have models that can heat efficiently with outdoor temperatures as low as -14°F.
Particularly in renovations or new construction, mini-split ac/heat pumps are much simpler and less expensive to install because they only require a 3” line run between the outdoor and indoor units.
They also offer:
- Cleaner healthier indoor air with plasma air purifying technology
- Better air circulation with computer-controlled louvers and fan speeds
- Custom temperature control with remote controls for each indoor unit, and powerful App-based features to let you interact with your LG mini-split heat pump from anywhere through your Apple and Android mobile device
What’s more, in recent years several choices have been developed for indoor units to fit into any space in the home without being obtrusive. Now you can choose between traditional high-wall outlets, or mini-air handlers, recessed ceiling units, low-wall units or even different color options. Newer models can even blend into the décor of the home by doubling as a picture frame.
