Mini-Split Heating and Cooling Services for Every Home

Mini-Split Heating and Cooling in Sellersburg, IN

Mini-split units are an excellent choice for both cooling and heating systems. These ductless systems are highly efficient and can be installed in practically any size of home. In areas like Sellersburg, IN, combined heating and cooling mini-split systems provide an all-in-one solution to maximize comfort year-round.

The Best of Both Worlds

Traditional central air systems have always had one major advantage over mini-split AC systems: sharing many components between the home’s cooling and heating systems, with ductwork used to distribute cooled and heated air. However, Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling can provide your home with a reliable combined mini-split heating and cooling system.  By combining the two systems, you can save money on equipment, installation, maintenance, and operation. It also saves valuable space within your home. One of the only potential downsides of a mini-split system is that your HVAC technician must mount the interior unit(s) to a wall inside of your home. Thankfully, with combined heating and cooling, you need only one unit to achieve both climates throughout the home. You’ll also have an easier time controlling your home’s temperature year-round since you won’t have to learn the minor quirks of two different systems. Instead, you can just rely on the effective and intuitive controls of your ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems. 

Mini-Split Heating and Cooling Energy Savings

These systems are very efficient and can help you save money the whole year-round here in Sellersburg, IN. During the summer months, your mini-split will provide powerful cooling through a refrigerant cycle, where heat is carried outside your home and expelled outdoors. Refrigerant cycles are incredibly efficient, working the same way your fridge does, only throughout the entire home.  The real innovation doesn’t come on the AC side, though. It has to do with heating. Ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems feature innovative technology that will bring never before seen levels of heating efficiency. During the winter, your system reverses the refrigerant cycle and pumps in heat from the frigid outdoors. That is why they’re often called heat pumps. It might sound strange that you’re bringing in heat from outdoors even when it’s cold, but it isn’t so different from the AC putting out heat when it’s already warm outside. It’s like pumping water up from a well, except with warm air. It naturally falls back down, but with the system’s energy, it can be brought back up.  The reason that mini-splits are so great for heating is that the energy required to pump heat into your home is much less than generating the heat with electric baseboard heaters or other methods. Even factoring in the electricity used in the system’s fans, you can save up to 40 percent of your overall heating bills.

Installations in Any Home

At Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling, we can install ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems in almost any home, no matter the style or size. The big advantage is that there is no ductwork required, so houses that haven’t had central air systems in the past won’t require extensive duct installation work.  Rather than relying on ductwork to distribute heat throughout each room of the home, mini-splits divide your home into heating and cooling zones. Each zone will have a unit of its own to provide cooling and heating to that particular area. Some homes will only require one, while others will require several depending on the square footage and the number of floors. The fans within these systems provide effective distribution within each zone, bringing it to an even and consistent temperature. Because these systems can be installed on a unit-by-unit basis, they are an excellent choice for heating and cooling any home expansion, even where an existing central air system is in place already. The installation process is fast, safe, and very non-invasive. The refrigerant flows between the interior and exterior units through a conduit no more than three inches in diameter. The conduit runs through an outer wall of your home, and the interior unit is mounted to the wall. That’s all we’ll have to do to your home to install your new ductless mini-split system.  The exterior unit can be mounted to the wall when appropriate or sit on the ground as many central air conditioning systems do.
