A ductless mini split system is an infinitely smarter choice than traditional HVAC. However, you should still research to find the best mini split for your home’s needs. How do you do that? Here are some features to look out for.
If you saw our post on the cost of a ductless mini split system, you’ll recall these aren’t the cheapest heating and cooling units you can buy. A warranty makes your investment worthwhile, as it protects against workmanship defects.
A warranty of seven to 10 years is average and suffices, but anything over that is great if you can get it.
A ductless mini split technician will take care of most of the heavy lifting regarding regular maintenance duties, but you’ll still have to do some of it yourself.
For example, you should keep the exterior of the compressor clean and replace air filters from time to time.

It’s our duty to prioritize sustainable living and do our part to keep our ailing planet around for future generations.
You’ve made some significant lifestyle changes to create a greener home, and the next change on your to-do list is revamping your heating and cooling system. You recognize you have outdated HVAC that drags down your utility bills, so you’ve begun exploring alternatives.
You’re interested in switching over to a ductless mini split system. However, you’re unsure how eco-friendly these heating and cooling units are.
A ductless mini split is a great tool for a more sustainable home. Let’s examine the ways that mini splits are better for our planet.
Don’t Need as Many Raw Materials
A central air conditioner or furnace needs many vents or ducts. It’s expensive to procure these materials, but did you ever think of how the parts are made? They’re often imported, traveling by boat or plane to reach the manufacturing plant.

Mini split technology continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible, and customers benefit. Let’s review some of the latest innovations in ductless tech.
Compatibility with Wi-Fi
Admittedly, Wi-Fi is far from the new kid on the block, but mini splits have now caught up with most household tech in that they’re Wi-Fi-ready.
More mini splits are manufactured with Wi-Fi remotes. This internet-friendly remote enables you to set the temperature of your mini split even if you’re not in the same room.
Imagine knowing your bedroom will be hot because it’s early summer and you haven’t run the AC all day. You can turn it on in advance so the room is nice and chilly by the time you get upstairs to get changed after a long day of work.
Or, picture that it’s a cold winter day, and you want a toasty nook to settle down in and read a good book. You can use the mini split’s Wi-Fi remote to configure the temperature before you enter

A ductless mini split is arguably the most energy-efficient cooling solution on the market, far more so than window air conditioners and even central cooling units. You’re interested in purchasing a mini split, but what types of mini split ACs can you choose from?
This succinct post will take you through your options so you can select one to provide the most optimal cooling in your home.
Ceiling Cassette Mini Split
A mini split’s indoor unit is considerably smaller than a window air conditioner. However, some customers want an indoor unit that’s as unobstructive as possible. We always recommend ceiling cassette mini splits to them.
These mini splits install higher on the wall near the ceiling (hence the name). They’re a less obvious solution that looks great in a bedroom, an office, a living room, or an entertainment room.
You can enjoy greater cooling without a bulky unit taking up space.

You’ve spent months weighing your options and have decided a ductless mini split system is the right solution for you. You’ve even selected several brands you like.
As you’re on the cusp of a life-changing decision (in the best way possible), we put together this checklist so you can make a purchase you’re pleased with.
Here’s how to choose a mini split.
The first consideration is zones. A zone does not necessarily constitute the rooms in a building but is instead the parts of your home or commercial building that get colder or hotter than other spaces.
These zones can include above-ground and below-ground rooms like a basement or attic, a drafty room with old windows, or an upstairs bedroom that lacks ventilation.
The more square footage, the greater the number of zones in many cases. Single-zone units cover only one zone, but if you need a multi-zone mini split, you can select between three and eight zones.

A ductless mini split is an investment, and while it should last longer than traditional HVAC units, you still must maintain it and treat it with care. Part of that involves embracing inverter technology.

The coolant or refrigerant can then travel
