Ductless Mini SplitsTallahassee, FL
If you’re looking to heat/cool your home, but lack the necessary ductwork for a conventional central air system, WEC Heating & A/C Inc. has an affordable, convenient and elegant solution. Ductless, mini split systems make wonderful retrofit add-ons to homes lacking ductwork, as well as for room additions where extending or installing ductwork is not a viable option.
Like standard air-source heat pumps, mini split systems utilize two main components. An outdoor compressor/condenser is linked to an indoor air-handling unit through a conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing and a condensate drain. Hook up between the outdoor and indoor units requires a small three-inch hole through a wall, which makes them far easier to install than other types of space conditioning systems. The installation process for a ductless mini split system is quick, neat and requires far fewer materials than cutting holes in walls, floors and ceilings for standard HVAC installations.

A major advantage of a mini split system is the small size and flexibility for heating and cooling individual rooms. With central air, you’re forced to cool an entire home. Mini split systems provide room-by-room control. Many models offer the opportunity for up to four indoor air-handling units connected to a single outdoor unit, which allows you to heat/cool four individual rooms. Since each of the zones enjoys its own thermostat, you can choose to condition only when those rooms are occupied. This not only saves energy and money, but since not everyone is comfortable at the same temperature, independent control allows individuals to set their ideal climate.
Ductless Mini Split Are Energy Efficient
By having no ductwork, mini splits avoid the energy losses associated with the ductwork of forced air systems. Leakage from ductwork can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning. Because energy is transported through insulated lines, ductless mini split systems conserve 95%, keeping those utility costs low and comfort high. Ask the specialists from WEC Heating & A/C Inc. about our ENERGY STAR compliant units for even greater efficiency and savings.
With a mini split system you have far greater interior design flexibility. The indoor air handler can be installed just about anywhere. The trained technicians from WEC Heating & A/C Inc. have the experience and expertise to suspend the indoor unit from the ceiling, mount it flush into a drop ceiling or hang it on a wall. We’ll also set you up with a remote control to make it easier to turn the system on and off.
Mini-Splits are the Best Choice for Home Comfort
Mini split systems are also extremely quiet. The indoor air-handler operates between 21 and 30 decibels, which is about the equivalent of a whisper. The outdoor unit, at 60 decibels, is much quieter than a conventional air conditioning condenser, and since it can be located as far as 50 feet from the indoor unit, you can tuck it away in an inconspicuous place.
