How Ductless Mini-splits Work
Mini-split heat pumps do their magic by moving heat in and out of your house. Ductless mini-splits consist of two units: the interior air handler unit and the exterior heat pump. These two units are connected by small diameter tubing and don’t require bulky expensive ductwork. In the summer, the interior air handler draws in hot air and sends it outside where the heat pump removes the heat from the coolant before returning it inside to cool. In the winter, the mini-split heat pump reverses the process and provides cozy heated air inside.
