Customize Your Home’s Cooling with a Mini-Split System

Lennox Mini Split System - outdoor and mounted ductless mini split AC
It can be extremely frustrating when your air conditioner just can’t ever seem to cool or heat your entire house. It might be a stubborn room, or a section of your home, that refuses to be anything but uncomfortably hot or so cold your teeth chatter.

While you might think you need to overhaul your HVAC system, there might be a better, more earth-friendly solution: a ductless mini-split system. These innovative, compact systems don’t take up much space, but are exceptionally good at cooling or heating specific rooms—and don’t require air ducts like normal HVAC.

Get in touch with our staff today to get a free estimate or second opinion. We’re happy to help you schedule an appointment too! Give us a call at 618-416-0111 to start the process.

What Is a Mini-Split?

You may have heard of a mini-split system before. Also known as a multi-split system or split-ductless system, these smaller models are different from traditional heating and cooling equipment. They work by using the difference in temperature between the air inside your home and the air outside your home.

A mini-split system is a type of heating and cooling system that doesn't require traditional air ducts. It consists of two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. These two units are connected by a conduit that runs through a hole in your wall. There are mini-split AC systems that cool your home, and mini-splits that also provide heat.

What Are the Pros and Cons of Mini-Splits?

There are several advantages of installing mini-splits, but they may not be right for every home.


  • Energy efficiency: Mini-splits are generally more energy-efficient than traditional HVAC systems because they avoid the energy loss associated with ductwork.
  • Easy installation: Since mini-splits don't require ductwork, they're typically easier and less invasive to install than traditional systems. Home Heating & Cooling also provides concealed mini-split installation, which is a way to hide the indoor unit from view.
  • Quiet and easy operation: Mini-splits tend to operate more quietly than traditional HVAC units, contributing to a more peaceful home environment. Wireless remote options are available for easy control.
  • Space saving: The compact size of mini-split systems makes them a good choice for small homes or rooms where space is limited.
  • Flexibility: Each unit can be controlled independently, allowing for precise temperature control in individual rooms or zones. They can be an excellent solution for additions, outbuildings or other spaces where extending existing ductwork isn't practical.


  • Up-front cost: Mini-splits can be more expensive to purchase and install up front compared to some traditional HVAC systems. However, Home Heating & Cooling is committed to working within your budget and also offers discounts for seniors, first responders and members of the military.
  • Aesthetics: Some people may find the indoor units of mini-split systems less visually appealing than other heating and cooling options.
  • Electricity: Mini-split systems run on electricity so they will affect your power bill. However, they are extremely efficient and waste very little power.
  • Not for all homes: Sometimes mini-splits aren’t an effective solution for a home. Home Heating & Cooling will assess whether they’ll work in your home and provide you with an honest opinion about whether mini-splits are a worthwhile investment for you.
  • Professional installation: While the installation of mini-splits is generally less invasive, it still requires professional expertise you get from the experts at Home Heating & Cooling. Do-it-yourself installation is not recommended.
