Do I need to change my indoor coil?
The main advantages of mini splits are their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. Many models can have multiple indoor air handling units connected to one outdoor unit. The number depends on how much heating or cooling is required for the building or each zone. Each of the zones will have its own thermostat, so you only need to condition that space when it is occupied, saving energy and money. Ductless mini split systems are also often easier to install than other types of space conditioning systems. For example, the hook-up between the outdoor and indoor units generally requires a small hole through a wall for the line set. Also, Fujitsu can provide a variety of lengths of line sets.
Since mini splits have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air systems. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic.
Compared with other add-on systems, mini splits offer more flexibility in interior design options. The indoor air handlers can be suspended from a ceiling, mounted flush into a ceiling, or hung on a wall. Most indoor units have low profiles and usually come with sleek, high-tech-looking jackets. Many also offer a remote control to make it easier to turn the system on and off when it's positioned high on a wall or suspended from a ceiling. Contact Pro Services to get your in home evaluation.
