What is a Mini Split?

A mini split, also known as a ductless unit, is exactly what the name entails; it is the small version of a central AC/Heating unit without the air ducts that a large system requires. Unlike the split system (central air which requires a furnace, a condenser and coil) the mini split heat pump condenser (which produces heat and cool air) and an air handler(s) (the indoor unit that distributes the air throughout the room and/or house). The mini split is perfectly design to control temperature in individual rooms and controlled by a remote or through a phone app, if you have chosen the WIFI feature.
