What Are Ductless Mini-Splits & How Do They Work?
With a conventional HVAC system, as much as 30% of the energy used for heating and cooling is wasted due to leaking or poorly insulated ductwork. Ductless mini split systems eliminate the air ducts, which not only makes them more efficient but also easier to install. And, unlike traditional air conditioning systems, many mini-split systems can provide both ductless heating and cooling, eliminating the need for a separate heating system. For many homes, especially existing ones that lack heating or cooling in one or more areas, ductless split systems are the perfect solution.
Benefits of Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioners for Your St. Louis Home
Ductless systems offer the latest advances in technology, such as variable speed compressors and air handlers, and they have many great features for St. Louis homeowners. Here are just a few:
- High energy efficiency: Ductless splits make excellent cooling systems, with SEER ratings that are as high 20, and those that also offer ductless heating are extremely efficient as well, with HSPF ratings that are typically higher than 8.0. By investing in a ductless system with greater efficiency, you will save money every month on your heating and cooling bills.
- Optional zoning: Many ductless systems are designed for one room, with a single air handler and condenser unit, but larger systems are available. These feature an upgraded condenser with several air handlers for multiple zones that each have independent temperature controls.
- Wall or ceiling mounts: Air handlers are available for either wall or ceiling installations, and they often feature remote controls that allow temperature adjustments from a distance.

Ductless Mini-Split Installations in the Greater St. Louis Area
Like a traditional cooling system, ductless AC systems feature a condenser unit and compressor that are housed outdoors. This is connected to individual air handlers through refrigerant and electrical lines. The installation process includes:
- Installing the condenser unit in a convenient outdoor location
- Mounting each air handler in a suitable indoor location
- Drilling a 3- to 4-inch hole through the wall or ceiling for refrigerant lines
- Connecting the refrigerant and electrical lines to the condenser and air handlers
Our team at Classic Aire Care can quickly and efficiently install your ductless system with minimal mess or disruption to your schedule. We offer both new installations and system replacements.
