If you have a living space that either isn’t connected to a full split system, or is in a home or building without ductwork in Portland, we have great news for you! With a ductless mini split air conditioning and heating system, you can experience the same quiet, efficient comfort of a split system without the need for ductwork!
Ductless systems are also called ‘mini-splits’ because like their big brothers, they locate part of the equipment outside, and the other part inside. If you are familiar with normal split system design, you know the air conditioner (or heat pump) is located outside the home, and the furnace and evaporator coil (or fan coil) is located inside the home. Ductless mini split systems in Portland are no different, except the indoor fan coil is very small, and able to be mounted on the wall, floor or even recessed in the ceiling.
Ductless systems can also provide comfort to multiple rooms with a process called ‘twinning’. This simply means more than one indoor air handler is powered from a single outdoor unit. Ductless twinning provides room by room control for perfect comfort management, and more efficient heating and air conditioning.
Heat pumps are typically not designed to provide heat in extreme cold. That job is usually done better by a gas furnace or radiant system. However, some ductless heat pumps feature technology like the Mitsubishi H2i which allows them to provide heat even in sub zero temperatures! This makes a ductless installation a true year round solution for any living space not connected to a traditional split system.
