A Spotlight on the Lennox MLA Mini-Split Heat Pump

For decades, most American families have been using central air conditioning and heating. Everybody seems to like the idea of having heated or cooled air in every part of the home. But what if you’re looking to heat or cool just a room or two, and you don’t want to go through the grueling process of installing additional ductwork, or you don’t have any ductwork at all? In those cases, you might want to consider ductless systems, also known as mini-splits.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your innovative heating company in Vadnais Heights MN that offers a number of mini-split systems designed to heat or cool specific rooms.


A great alternative for ductless homes, a mini-split system can be mounted anywhere, eliminating the many problems associated with ducted systems. With a mini-split system, you can have better temperature control in specific rooms, while lowering your energy consumption in the process.

According to manufacturers, ductless systems can lower your heating and cooling costs by up to 50 percent. Having said that, the savings may differ based on several factors including square footage of the conditioned space and the efficiency rating of your existing HVAC equipment.

How it Works

Ductless systems can be used for both heating and cooling purposes. These systems consist of indoor and outdoor components. The condenser/compressor, which is installed outdoors, is responsible for applying pressure to the refrigerant, which is then dissipated through coils that are connected to the indoor unit. This indoor unit has three elements, which include air handlers, blowers, and the evaporator coil. Indoor air handling units are positioned in key areas throughout the home, which increases the system’s energy-efficiency.

Do You Need One?

If your home has a boiler and radiators but not ductwork, a mini-split system is a practical option for you. With a ductless set-up, you won’t have to install any ductwork, which can be both expensive and challenging to install.

In addition, if you have a large home with certain areas that are not frequently occupied such as libraries and guest rooms, a mini-split can also be a good choice for you.

Also, if your home suffers from issues such as hot and cold spots, a mini-split system can be a permanent solution.
