Ductless Mini-Split Heat and Air

Rustic cabin nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC. The cabin is a riff on the Appalachian culture and its architecture. Built as if it rose from the local woods, by local craftsmen with the tradition of seat-of-the-pants resourcefulness. The cabin echoes the Appalachian traditions of small is beautiful, and richness in simplicity. Cypress wall panelling with nickel groove. The Mitsubishi ductless mini-split provides heating and cooling to the entire cabin. Builder: River Birch Builders, Asheville, NC 828-777-3501 Photography: William Britten williambritten.com

    Ductless mini split heat pumps are great for homes or businesses looking to retrofit a non-ducted heating system. Non-ducted heating systems include heating systems such as hot water heating, baseboard heating.

    A ductless mini split heat pump is also great for rooms that cannot easily be connected to ducted systems, i.e. garage, guest house, warehouse, etc.

    Be sure to opt for an Energy Star certified unit for the largest savings and to enjoy the overall cost savings of an energy efficient unit.

Is the electric outlet behind the heating/cooling unit?

  • Walter Hanson

    Air source heat pumps (also called “ductless heat pumps” or “mini split heat pumps”) are the new standard in efficient home heat – whether you’re looking to supplement your home’s central heat or replace your system entirely, heat pumps are a better solution than ever. Plus, heat pumps offer cooling in the summer and leading-edge performance rates that keep your heating bill low.

    The indoor wall cassette is thermostatically controlled to provide you with both heating and cooling. When there is a call for heat, the heat pump will turn on the fan in the outdoor unit to begin the process of extracting heat from the air outside of your home.

  • MiniSplit Heat

    Mini-split systems have two main components -- an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit(s) (evaporator). They are easy to install usually requiring only a three-inch hole through a wall for the conduit; which houses the power and communication cables, copper tubing, and a condensation drain line, linking the outdoor and indoor units.
