Mini-Split Air Conditioners
and Heat Pumps
Ductless, mini-split-system heat pumps (mini splits) make good retrofit add-ons to houses with "non-ducted" heating systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters (wood, kerosene, propane). They can also be a good choice for room additions where extending or installing distribution ductwork is not feasible, and very efficient new homes that require only a small space conditioning system.
Like standard air-source heat pumps, mini splits have two main components -- an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units.
Most Energy Efficient Mini-Split in North America!
What is a Mini-Split Heat Pump?
- A MSHP is an energy saving supplemental heating source
- Mini-splits use electricity to move heat from outdoor to indoor by the refrigeration process.
- Heats or cools on demand
- Ductless (less energy lost)
- Easy and inexpensive installation and maintenance
- Allows for zoning with multiple units
A Mini Split Heat Pump can help you…
- Go Green –Heat Pumps can reduce your carbon footprint because of their high degree of efficiency.
- Save Money–Heat Pumps can reduce the cost of heating/cooling your home year round by supplementing your current heat source.
- Save energy-Heat pumps transfer the heat energy in the outside air into your home.
Household Energy Use
An average of 82% of a household’s energy use in New England is space and water heating.
Ways Mainers Heat their Homes
Maine predominantly uses oil burning furnaces for heating.
The cost of oil shows no sign of declining.
Our dependency on oil is money that flees our state’s economy
