Daikin Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems
Do you have a room that is too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer – one in which finding the right temperature is always an issue? Have you renovated a room or added on a living space that currently does not have ductwork to provide heat or cooling?
We can help you achieve room-to-room comfort as well as maximize energy savings with a Daikin ductless mini split system.
What is a ductless mini split Heat pump? What are mini split installations like?
Ductless mini-split systems (aka mini split heat pumps) contain two main parts: an indoor air-handling unit and an outdoor compressor/condenser.
There is rarely any need to rebuild or repair walls when installing a ductless mini split system. With a traditional ducted system, ducting has to be routed along the walls or inside them. Depending on the size and complexity of the project, adding on to a current ducted system could take several days or weeks to complete.
In contrast, most ductless mini splits can be installed in a day. The indoor component of the mini split unit is mounted high on a wall. Then, the outdoor unit and refrigerant tubing, a power cable, suction tubing, and a condensate drain line all connect to the indoor unit through a 3” hole in your wall.
You can have a single indoor system or a multi-zone system connected to the same outdoor unit (up to six). Each indoor unit is independently controlled, allowing you to adjust the temperature with the touch of a button.
Advantages of a mini split system
- Mini split installation is quick
- A separate thermostat allows for flexibility in controlling room temperature
- Doubles as both and air conditioner and heating system
- Lower operating costs that will save money and energy
- No ductwork required
- Longer lifespan
Daikin single and multi-zone systems offer SEER options up to 26.1 and state-of-the-art inverter technology that reduces energy consumption – typically up to 30% or more than ducted systems. Select Daikin ductless systems come with an intelligent infrared eye sensor that senses movement in the room. If you leave the room for more than 20 min, the system automatically shifts into an energy-savings mode.
Why install a ductless heating and cooling system?
Mini split heat pumps provide heating and cooling to your living spaces without having to add on to your home’s existing ductwork, saving money and messy installations. A ductless mini split operates independently of your central air system and does not require air ducts to provide heating and cooling.
In addition, mini splits are great at solving comfort problems. In living spaces that are difficult to heat and cool, a ductless air conditioner and heater will help balance the temperature in your home.
If you are looking to heat or cool certain rooms, ductless systems are flexible enough to meet your needs. They also can help everyone stay comfortable if you have family members who have different preferences when it comes to temperature.
What types of homes benefit the most from mini splits?
Homes with no pre-existing ductwork: Older homes often have no ductwork at all making it difficult to route ductwork.
Homes with rooms that are hard to heat or cool: Rooms that are located at the end of a duct run or cut-off from the main part of the house often have a hard time maintaining a comfortable temperature.
Family members with different temperature preferences: Instead of battling over the thermostat, ductless systems allow different rooms to be different temperatures.
Homes with additions or renovated spaces: Sunrooms, rooms over garages, game rooms, home theater rooms, and more are notoriously difficult to heat or keep cool. All are great spaces for a mini split.
