Mini-Splits Services in Colorado Springs
Mini-splits are year-round, dual-system heating and cooling systems that are ductless in nature. They are best used for individual rooms or spaces and are made of two main components. There is an outdoor unit that compresses and condenses a liquid refrigerant, which transfers heated or cooled air to the indoor unit, which evaporates the refrigerant and blows the adjusted air into the room, depending on the time of year. Mini-splits also have a conduit that houses power and communication cables, copper tubing, and a condensation drain line.
Mini-split systems are perfect for whole home or new constructions and also make for great retrofit additions to buildings with ductless heating systems such as hydronic, radiant panel, or space heated. They are considerably more efficient than window-mounted AC systems with none of the need for duct installation. And with no ducts, there is no productivity lost due to duct leakage, saving you money lost to inefficiency. Multiple indoor units can connect to a single outdoor unit, saving you even more money. Zoning is a breeze due to the individual nature of the system.
