Seen but not heard: Mini-Splits’ secret power

Ductless mini-splits have been steadily gaining popularity as an efficient, effective and versatile heating and cooling solution for homes and businesses. Mini-splits are known as ductless mini-splits because they don’t require the ductwork a traditional system relies on to deliver conditioned air throughout a building. This is often viewed favorably as it allows them to be installed in virtually any building or space. They also leverage  heat pump technology, enabling them to provide both heating and cooling. However, there is more than meets the eye with mini-splits. These compact units have hidden strengths, such as their ability to filter air which can significantly improve indoor air quality, as well as their highly customizable zoning capabilities.

Ductless mini-splits are so quiet they are hard to hear when operating.

But one of their greatest strengths isn’t hidden—it’s unheard. Mini-splits operate so quietly that they often go unnoticed, which can be a significant advantage in both homes and offices. Typically, a quiet HVAC system goes unnoticed and maybe even underappreciated, but when a system is loud it can be unpleasant and distracting, potentially ruining a serene environment, which is essential for deep sleep, focus, and relaxation. Ductless mini-split systems provide peace of mind in many ways, but their silent operation is particularly valuable.
