Is A Multi-Zone Mini Split the Right Choice for Your Home?

A ductless mini-split heat pump is a terrific way to deliver effective air comfort to a single-zone that a central system can't reach. However, single-zone is not the only ductless solution available. Multi-zone mini-split systems allow one condenser to support two or more interior air handlers. This distributed network, still disconnected from ducts, can provide all the air comfort of a central system, but with a flexibility traditional installations can't match.

Multi-Zone Flexibility

Architects designed late 20th century American homes to accommodate large, central heating and air conditioning systems. Most houses feature ample space in the attic or crawlspace to run ductwork. For these buildings, central HVAC makes sense.

Of course, many generations constructed homes long before the advent of air conditioning. Older attics and crawlspaces lack the space to run bulky ductwork. Work-arounds and compromises can sometimes be made to install such equipment, but it never works as effectively as it would in a home designed for the technology.

Multi-zone ductless technology is the solution. A modern multi-zone system can be effectively deployed in a home with very little space. The conduit lines can run inside walls or on the outside of the house. Air handlers mount easily on walls, and cassettes take no space at all in a ceiling cavity.

Not only that, but the homeowner can customize the setup to compliment their habits. Are you a baker that needs more cooling in the kitchen? Ductless can do that. Do you want to keep the master bedroom warmer than the rest of the house? Ductless can do that. Would you like to extend air comfort to a detached garage or shop? A multi-zone can do that too.

Whatever your air comfort need, a multi-zone system is flexible enough to deliver.

    I am interested in your product. Our house was just flooded during hurricane Florence and all of our duct work and heat and AC were destroyed. I was told about this but had never heard of it before so I would like to have some more information if there is a website or someone I could call. Thank you.
