Types Of Mini Split Systems

Mini split air conditioner and heating systems are categorized as a single or multi-zone. Single zone systems have an indoor unit and outdoor compressor that deliver warm or cool air to a single room. Multi-zone systems use one outdoor compressor and more than one indoor unit to heat and cool multiple rooms. These four types of mini splits can be set up for either single or multi-zone use.

Wall Mount

This is the most common type of system among mini splits. Wall mount mini split systems are generally installed high on a wall and can work in any type of room. Since wall mount systems are visible, this type comes in several style options, which make the indoor unit as inconspicuous as possible.

Ceiling Cassette

The indoor unit of a ceiling cassette system mounts — or inserts — into the ceiling, similar to a cassette tape into the tape deck. The surface of the unit is flush with the ceiling, which makes it a good choice for home and business owners who want to keep the unit out of sight. And because the air flow is coming from the ceiling, this design provides a wider range of air flow.

Floor Standing

Also called floor-mounted, these systems are indoor units installed along the baseboard in rooms. Because the indoor unit is always visible, most floor standing systems are designed with contemporary styling to help the unit blend into the surrounding room.

Ceiling Suspended

This type closely resembles a wall mount mini split system, but this option is mounted on the ceiling instead of the wall. Ceiling suspended mini split systems are another option for anyone with either limited wall space or those who want a discreet appearance.

When You Should Consider A Ductless System

Ductless mini split systems aren’t for every home or business but they are an option for many. Here are three reasons when you should consider a ductless system. If you are unsure whether a ductless system would be suitable for your home or business, call Spoor’s Heating & Air Conditioning. We’d be happy to help!

Converted Spaces

Homeowners looking for more living space may opt to convert an attic, garage, or porch into usable space rather than building an addition. Ductless mini splits solve the issue of adding or rerouting ductwork, and prevent the need for upgrading the current HVAC system to meet the new demand.

Replacing An Outdated HVAC System

There will come a time when the current HVAC system in your home or business is simply outdated. This could be from constant repairs that have met or exceeded the cost of replacing the system. Or, the current system is functional, but you want to save money and energy with a newer, more efficient HVAC system, such as a ductless mini split.

Older Buildings

Many older buildings can pose a challenge when installing or adding a conventional heating and cooling system. There may be a lack of space to install ductwork and all necessary components without a major renovation. Ductless systems let you create custom zoning to meet the heating and cooling needs of the building and its occupants.

Great company with fast response times! Our restaurants ac went out around 12pm and we open at 5! called a few heating and air companies and they were the first to get back to me. All of their employees were currently out on other jobs but the owner Jeff himself came out and fixed our miner problem by 3pm leaving us with a fresh dinning room for the busy night shift. highly recommend them!! family owned and operated!

-Christine Riley

We recently replaced a heating and air conditioning unit at our rental. Spoor's Heating and Air presented a very reasonable bid for the work with higher end equipment than what their competitors offered. They were extremely timely and professional, both when the old heater needed servicing, as well as installing the new system. The new system had some difficult placement issues and they did an excellent job strategizing the best installation solution. My husband used to install these types of systems (retired). He observed the work, and was extremely pleased with the end result. We highly recommend Spoor's Heating and Air.
