Franklin, IN Ductless Mini Split Installation
When you have an older home that has certain rooms that are difficult to keep comfortable, it can be frustrating, not to mention wasteful. When you run your HVAC, but the desired space doesn’t get comfortable, that energy spent goes somewhere else, often outside your home through drafts. Many times, rooms that can’t get comfortable are because they lack ductwork, like finished attics, basements, bonus rooms, or sunrooms. When you need to heat or cool an area or room that doesn’t have ductwork, a ductless mini-split system is a perfect HVAC choice. These systems don’t need any ducts to fill rooms with heated or cooled air. Their simple design and convenience can make them a great choice for your home or property.

How a Ductless Mini-Split System Works
You’re used to heated or cooled air blowing into various rooms in your home through floor, wall, or ceiling vents. But with a ductless system, you don’t need all that ductwork to make a room or area warmer or cooler. Ductless mini-split systems are composed of an air handler or indoor unit connected to an outdoor unit. You can have the indoor unit put in a specific part of your home or a freestanding structure, like a shed. You can also have multiple indoor units installed. Usually, one outdoor unit can support between 5-8 indoor units. Indoor units connect to an outdoor unit with a compressor and refrigerant lines for air conditioning. You can have a heat pump as the outdoor unit, which provides both heating and cooling.
If you have multiple indoor units or zones set up, each one has separate controls. That means you can raise or lower the temperature in one zone, while a family member in another zone can adjust the temperature in that area. Ductless mini-split systems don’t require any ductwork, so they’re incredibly versatile. Cooled or heated air flows into each zone through the indoor unit rather than through ducts and vents. This kind of setup gives you and your family greater control over the temperature in different parts of your home.Schedule Service
Benefits of Having a Ductless Mini-Split System Installed
Our team at Thiele can install a ductless mini-split system in your home in no time. Once you have this system in place, you can look forward to these advantages.
Reduced Energy Bills
Leaks in ductwork can be an expensive waste of energy and difficult to find and repair. Since a ductless mini-split system has no ducts, you don’t have to worry about air leaks, which means less energy is wasted with a ductless system. Mini-splits also use less energy compared to a traditional furnace or central air conditioner. That means you can rely on them more for heating and cooling instead of your regular HVAC, which can bring your energy bills down.
No Ductwork Needed
There’s much less mess involved with installing a ductless mini-split system than there is with traditional HVAC installation when ductwork needs to be added. Mini-split systems are installed much quicker than traditional HVAC systems and are less invasive to install than adding new ductwork.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
If you have dusty ducts, that means you have dusty air blowing into your home anytime you run your AC or furnace. A ductless system providing heated or cooled air helps improve your indoor air quality.
Individualized Temperature Control
With a ductless mini-split system installed, everyone in your home can feel comfortable in any season. Someone who prefers more heat in winter can turn the temperature up in their zone. Another family member who loves to blast the AC in summer can do that in another zone. These systems make it easy to control the temperature in different areas of your home.Schedule Service
How Long Do Ductless Mini-Splits Last?
When you choose to install a ductless system in your home, you can expect it to last longer than a traditional HVAC system as well. The average lifespan of a ductless mini-split is 15-20, depending on usage and maintenance. A system that runs year-long in a common room won’t last as long as the mini-split in your sunroom that you only use in the summer.
Be sure to call Thiele whenever you notice that the operation of your mini-split is faltering. Good mini-split ownership means making repairs as you notice issues come up. Oftentimes, quick repairs can restore your system back to normal. Many ductless mini-splits have lights on them that indicate when they need filter changes or maintenance. Pay attention to these signs, or schedule your annual maintenance appointment with Thiele and we can inspect your mini-splits as well as your outdoor unit as part of our comprehensive maintenance appointment.Ductless Mini-Split Services
