Ductless Mini-Split Systems: The Energy-Efficient Solution for Your Home

Ductless mini-splits, a type of heat pump system, offer incredible savings on energy consumption, convenience, comfort, and even air quality benefits. Whether you already have a mini-split system you would like to maintain or want one installed, you will want a team on your side that you can count on to do it all correctly.

You want to work with Tanous Heating and Cooling for your ductless split system needs in the Hoboken area. We can help you choose, install, maintain, and repair these systems, so they’re always running efficiently, providing exceptional heating and cooling no matter the season.

What is a Ductless Mini-Split System?

A ductless mini-split system, also known as a ductless mini-split heat pump, is a heating and cooling system comprising two main components: an outdoor compressor-condenser unit and an indoor air handler. The indoor air handler is usually mounted flush to the wall, and depending on your system, the outdoor compressor unit can power up to eight air-handling units throughout your home. Each indoor unit has its thermostat, allowing you to adjust the temperature from room to room, and you can customize its use to suit your indoor air needs and energy costs.

Benefits of Ductless Mini-Split Systems

  • Energy Efficiency: For many homeowners, the primary reason they choose a ductless mini-split system is its energy efficiency. Ductless systems allow you to adjust the temperature from room to room or turn selectively used units only when you're in the room. This flexibility can significantly reduce your utility bills since your system consumes less energy around the clock.
  • Temperature Control: Ductless systems allow you to control the temperature in each room precisely. If you need your bedroom set to precisely 67 degrees and you don't want to cool the entire house to that temperature, a ductless mini-split can do that. It also cools quickly, lowering to the ideal temperature in as little as 5 minutes.
  • Noise Reduction: Another reason ductless systems are ideal for your home, especially your bedroom, is their quietness. Traditional air conditioning systems are loud and distracting. Concentrating or sleeping in a room when an air conditioner is on can be difficult. Ductless mini-split units run quietly because most of their operating parts are on the exterior of your home.

Are There Any Disadvantages to Ductless Mini-Split Systems?

  • Upfront Costs: While ductless units are easier to install than traditional HVAC systems, the initial costs are generally high. Installing a ductless mini-split system in your home could cost thousands of dollars. However, during a consultation with our Tanous Heating and Cooling technicians, we can help you evaluate your energy use and budget limits to decide if installing a ductless system is a good investment. We offer financing and money-saving options to help you get the air conditioning and heating system that fits your needs.
  • Regular Maintenance: No matter what type of HVAC system you have, it is vital to maintain regular service and cleaning. Ductless mini-split air conditioners require even more special attention because of their unique design. The fans inside the ductless system cannot handle any build-up of debris or dust. To ensure the system is working optimally, you must wash the filter at least once a month. If you smoke or have pets that shed, you may need to clean the filter more often. It is also vital to have seasonal tune-ups. One of our Tanous Heating and Cooling technicians will evaluate the ductless unit, checking all the electrical and mechanical components and ensuring that everything performs at the top.
  • Aesthetics: Though aesthetics may not be a primary concern for the installation, ductless mini-split systems have a classic look, usually white or beige. They may not blend with specific interior decors, so you should consider that if aesthetics are important to you. You cannot cover the units, so you cannot hide them behind curtains or architectural elements.

Ductless Mini-Split Installation and Repair

At Tanous Heating and Cooling, we offer a wide range of heating, air conditioning, and ventilation services, including installation, regular maintenance, repair, and replacement. We understand that every homeowner's needs are unique, so we provide personalized recommendations to help you choose the best ductless system for your home.

  • Maintenance and Seasonal Tune-Ups: Regular maintenance not only keeps your ductless system running smoothly; it also saves hundreds, even thousands of dollars in breakdown and repair costs, as well as help to maintain the warranties on the system.
  • Repairs: Breakdowns happen, and our Tanous Heating and Cooling experts are ready to offer the best solutions to repair and restore your system. We will assess and diagnose your system's problems and use our training and expertise to get your system back in working order.
  • Replacement and New Installation: If repair is impossible, our Tanous Heating and Cooling team can help you upgrade to a new system, such as a Mini-Split heat pump.

While ductless mini-splits are marketed as do-it-yourself-friendly, installing your ductless system yourself could void the manufacturer's warranty. It's best to leave the job to professionals like us at Tanous Heating and Cooling, who have the experience and knowledge to install the system safely and correctly.

Tanous handled a full HVAC system replacement at my home in Hoboken. The owner personally came out to do the initial assessment and had a quote over to me in under 24 hours. The work started less... than a week later. The crew was on time, worked efficiently, kept me posted throughout, and worked carefully to avoid making a mess. Everything about their service is top notch and professional. Not to mention the quote was significantly less expensive than the other two quotes I received while shopping around.read more

I recommend TANOUS for all your Heating and Air Conditioning needs. The Owner Mike and his team are hands on and work with you every step of the way to get any project you need done efficiently and... resolved in the best way possible. I had a major project to do involving a roof top commercial AC unit replacement on a busy Main Street, which called for a street closure and crane. All the companies I reached out to refused to even take on the job due to its complexity, but Mike took it on and exceeded my expectations. He even quoted me less than some of the companies that refused the job at the end. I've now used TANOUS in projects both Residential & Commercial and could not be happier. Great Company and Great Service... Thanksread more
