The Mini Split Difference

Mini splits work for NH & MA homeowners.

Kearney HVAC can help you upgrade!



Mini split heat pumps are rising in popularity as a heating and cooling solution for North Shore, Massachusetts and Seacoast, New Hampshire homes. These versatile and efficient systems offer a number of benefits. 

How Do Mini Splits Work

Mini splits are made up of three essential components: an interior air handler, an exterior compressor unit, and the refrigerant line that connects the two. Mini splits work by moving heat in or out of your home. In the winter months, these impressive systems can find trace amounts of heat outdoors, even in sub-zero temperatures, and transfer that heat into your home.

In the summer months when you want to cool your home, Mitsubishi electric mini splits work in the opposite way by finding heat inside your home, and moving it outside, leaving you with a comfortable living environment. Even better, these systems have a dehumidify setting that can help alleviate high humidity in your home for total comfort year-round.

Top 3 Benefits of Mini Splits 

Curious if mini splits are worth it for your home? Ductless mini split heat pumps offer a number of benefits, including:

1. Impressive versatility

Mini splits provide both heating and cooling. For this reason, some homeowners believe that a mini split is better than AC! With a mini split heat pump, you only need to maintain one system for heating and cooling — plus, multiple indoor air handlers can be combined to bring this versatility to the entire home!

2. Enjoy a Safer Home

Traditional heating systems like furnaces bring low risks of carbon monoxide leaks or fuel leaks that can keep you up at night. Mitsubishi electric heat pumps work differently from traditional heating and cooling systems because they don’t rely on traditional fuel sources or combustion to condition the air in your home! As their name implies, they operate solely on electricity.

3. Enjoy Better Indoor Air Quality

When you upgrade your home to mini split heating and cooling, you can enjoy cleaner air year-round thanks to each mini split’s built-in air filtration. This is great news for allergy or asthma sufferers, as your air will have fewer particulates and less dust, meaning you can breathe easy. Plus, if you’re upgrading from a traditional HVAC that relies on ductwork, you can leave dusty ducts behind for good. 

Added Versatility: Mini Splits Benefit Your Whole Home Or Just One Room

With ductless mini splits, you have the flexibility to choose the best HVAC solution for your home, your family, and your budget.

Mitsubishi electric mini splits make excellent options to either replace your old heating system entirely, or supplement your existing heating system. To upgrade your heating and cooling throughout your home, Kearney HVAC can help you install air handlers throughout your home to create zoned heating and cooling. This way, everybody can customize their comfort preferences in their bedrooms, living spaces, and more, and you can keep your heating and cooling costs low.

Mini splits can also benefit trouble spots like sunrooms, garages, even workspaces like She Sheds to supplement your traditional Heating system. Extend the time when you can enjoy your 3-season porch without having to turn up the heat ridiculously high and make the rest of your home uncomfortable. With mini splits, the possibilities are endless.
