Ductless mini-split system and multi-split HVAC system might sound like two different things, but they are actually names for the same type of system. The confusion comes in when we introduce single-head versus multi-head ductless systems. Single-head ductless systems are also a type of ductless system, but they work a little different from mini-split or multi-split head systems.

Let’s take a look at the differences between single-head ductless systems and multi-splits so you can choose the best HVAC system for your Dover, Delaware, home.

How Split Ductless Systems Work

Whether you have a single-split or multi-split system, both systems work differently than a central air system, something that you might be used to with traditional air conditioning systems. With a central air system, one system blows air through a network of ducts into your home. Split ductless systems use internal and external units, without ducts, to heat or cool your home. Because ductless systems don’t rely on a single system that may not reach every part of the house, homeowners can experience more efficient heating and cooling than with central air systems.

Pros and Cons of a Single-Split System

Single-head ductless systems use one ductless unit attached to an outdoor compressor. Because of this setup, single-split systems offer a better heating and cooling experience in the areas where the unit is placed. Single-split systems are also less expensive than multi-split systems. If you need to, you can also purchase several single-head systems to cover your entire home. That way, if one unit breaks, you will still have AC in other parts of your house.

The downside of a single-split system lies with its power. Because a single-split system doesn’t work for the entire home, you might have to spend more money to provide heating and cooling for everyone.

Pros and Cons of a Multi-Split System

Multi-split systems have the advantage of multiple indoor ductless units connected to one outdoor compressor. This arrangement is less costly than buying multiple single-split units. Because the units are attached to one compressor, less work is required to get your system up and running.

On the other hand, if your multi-split system goes down, all the units will be out of service.

For many people adding AC to a home, a ductless system is often the best choice. Depending on your needs, we can help you pick out either a single-head option or a multi-split system.
