Have you ever been in a room that just didn’t feel comfortable? Like the extra bedroom above the garage or a sunroom? Luckily, there’s a solution for such a problem – ductless mini splits. Ductless mini splits are HVAC systems that can be installed in individual rooms and provide you with temperature control and improved indoor air quality. Star Heating & Cooling has years of experience with ductless mini split installation and can offer the most cutting-edge models that Carrier has to offer!

Ductless mini split HVAC systems can help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Most models work the same way as a heat pump, transferring heat from one space to another. In cooling mode, this means that the mini-split will take the heat energy from the inside of your home, using refrigerant to absorb the heat, and transfer it to the air outside. In heating mode, the process is reversed, with the heat energy being transferred back to the inside of the home and through the indoor air handling unit.
Ductless mini splits provide homeowners with a ton of flexibility. You can rely on one outdoor unit to heat or cool a single room or multiple rooms. Each room that you want to heat or cool in your home has its own indoor air handling unit installed on the wall or ceiling. You don’t need to install new ducts or vents for a mini split system. And, since they don’t use blower motors or fans that contribute to dry air and circulation of airborne contaminants, indoor air quality is normally better in a home with ductless mini splits.
Given the flexibility and energy-efficiency benefits that come with ductless mini splits, all homeowners should give these devices some consideration when selecting their next HVAC system. However, here are a few examples of the types of homes that would benefit the most from ductless mini split installation:
Older homes that don’t have existing ductwork or have outdated ductwork would benefit greatly from a mini split system. You’ll avoid the expenses that come with installing new ductwork.
Sunrooms or working attic spaces can get hot and stuffy in the summer, and practically unusable in the winter. With a ductless system, these additions can be used throughout the year!
If you have a shed in your backyard that is too far away from your home to connect to the HVAC system, a ductless mini split unit can provide an easy temperature control solution.
Ductless mini split systems are significantly smaller than traditional central air and heating units, which can save precious square footage.
Perhaps the most popular feature of a ductless mini split system is its ability to create temperature zones. If you’re feeling cold, you can turn the temperature up in your own zone without disturbing or upsetting the rest of the household.
While a small mini split air conditioning unit is cheaper than a traditional central air or heating unit, there are a few factors that can increase the total cost of a ductless mini split system installation. Those include:
The good news is that ductless mini split installation is less invasive and therefore less expensive since there are no ducts or vents that need to be installed. However, the bigger the house, the more units will be needed to regulate the temperature, which will start to eat into your budget. The important thing to remember is that these systems use less energy than traditional systems, so you will likely see savings in the form of lower utility bills over time.
