Mini Split Installation in Denver & Surrounding Areas

As the name suggests, ductless mini splits function without requiring any ductwork. These systems transfer heat between the indoor and outdoor units using refrigerant, providing efficient and flexible conditioning solutions for individual rooms or zones.

Mini Splits for Heating & Cooling in Denver, CO

Here are the basic components of the system and how they work:

  • Indoor unit: The indoor unit, also known as the evaporator or air handler, is mounted on the wall or ceiling inside the room that you want to cool or heat. This unit features a coil and a fan. The primary role of the coil is to absorb heat from the indoor air during the cooling mode or add heat to the indoor air during the heating mode.

  • Outdoor unit: The outdoor unit, also called the condenser or compressor, is installed outside the building. It is connected to the indoor unit by a refrigerant line. The compressor along with the reverse valve controls the pressure and temperature of the air.

  • Cold climate heat pumps can extract heat from the air and keep you cozy even down to negative temperatures.  Modern heat pump technology is truly amazing!

  • Refrigerant circulation: The indoor and outdoor units are connected by a conduit that contains a power cable, a refrigerant line, a suction line, and a condensate drain. The refrigerant can easily change between liquid and gas states at low temperatures. It plays an integral role in absorbing and releasing heat.

  • Multizone systems expand their reach by employing a larger outdoor unit alongside multiple indoor units to condition more spaces in your property. Each indoor unit is connected to the outdoor unit through copper refrigerant lines, allowing centralized power from the outdoor unit to efficiently operate the entire system.

  • Heating and cooling process: In cooling mode, the refrigerant in the indoor unit’s coil evaporates, absorbing heat from the indoor air. The fan then blows the cooled air back into the room. In heating mode, the refrigerant, now in a gaseous state, travels through the refrigerant line to the outdoor unit. There, the compressor pressurizes the gas, raising its temperature. The refrigerant then absorbs heat from the outdoor air and releases it inside the building through the indoor unit’s coil.

Advantages of a Mini Split System

Homeowners stand to gain a lot by replacing their traditional HVAC systems with a mini-split system. Here are some of the benefits of a mini-split installation:

Inverter Technology

An inverter serves as an energy-saving technology that optimizes air conditioner performance by precisely regulating motor speed. In air conditioners equipped with inverter technology, temperature adjustments occur by modulating motor speed without the need for constant cycling ON and OFF. These inverters significantly reduce power loss compared to non-inverter air conditioners, resulting in energy savings of up to 30%

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Ductless mini-splits are highly energy-efficient because they don’t experience the energy losses associated with ductwork in traditional central HVAC systems. They allow for zone-specific heating and cooling, meaning you can control the temperature in individual rooms. The targeted approach helps avoid heating or cooling unused spaces.

Simple Installation

Ductless systems are a lot easier to install than traditional HVAC systems because they don’t require ductwork. Ultimately, it results in lower installation costs and less disruption to your home during installation. They are suitable for both new construction and retrofitting older buildings.

Improved Air Quality

Traditional ducted systems can accumulate dust, allergens, and other contaminants in the ductwork. Since ductless mini-splits don’t use ducts, they can contribute to better indoor air quality.

Quiet Operation

Mini-splits are known for their quiet operation. The noisier components, such as the compressor and fan, are located outside or in a designated mechanical room, minimizing indoor noise levels. Even when standing next to a compressor they are quiet and can be described as a light hum.

Zoning Capabilities

Ductless mini-splits offer the ability to create multiple zones with individual temperature controls. Zoning allows for greater customization and flexibility, letting occupants set different temperatures in different rooms or areas. This can also be applicable for house additions that don’t have ductwork, or for rental basements or rooms.
