Cold Weather Energy Savings — Make the Most of Your Ductless System With These Tips

Get the most out of your ductless HVAC system when the temperatures drop.

Are Mini Splits Really That Versatile? Read On

Versatility is the specific purpose for which ductless systems were designed by Mitsubishi Electric four decades ago. Find out they can work in many situations where other HVAC designs might not do.

Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems Work Well in Several Different Places

Where air ducts require design space and special considerations for project viability, ductless heating and cooling systems can accommodate practically any interior design plans (including historical Virginia homes), potentially increasing the amount of usable square footage for new home construction, additions and remodels.

Switching to a Ductless Heating and Cooling System? The 6-Step Process

This article will walk you through the six-step process of switching to ductless heating and cooling.

Ductless System Types and Mounting Options

Ductless systems offer home and business owners energy efficient heating and cooling solutions that optimize the comfort experience and help maintain healthful indoor air quality.

Ductless Systems - Clean, Quiet, Comfortable Heating and Cooling

While ductless systems for heating and cooling are now being widely accepted by American homeowners, the technology actually began long ago, as a response to U.S. air conditioners in a distant land. Until after World War II, Japan was a mostly non-air conditioned country. Influenced by the United States during the postwar era, however, the Japanese attempted to adopt American window air conditioners. However, these units quickly turned out to be impractical. Unlike this country, Japanese homes were spaced very close together and the bulky, 1950s technology didn’t fit well in these narrow confines. In addition, total square footage and individual rooms themselves were significantly smaller in Japanese homes. U.S. A/C units were so oversized for those dimensions that the units performed badly and wasted energy — a major drawback in a country where electricity costs were five times higher than here.

Can Ductless Systems Be Used as a Whole-House Heating and Cooling Solution?

Ductless mini-split systems, developed by Mitsubishi Electric during the 1970s, have long filled the bill of home and business owners in need of energy-efficient and versatile air conditioning solutions, providing supplemental heating and cooling for reconfigurations and new additions.

Can the Versatility of Ductless Heating and Cooling Work in Your Virginia Home?

Ductless heating and cooling was designed to condition rooms and areas in practically any building, whether it's inside a commercial building or conditioning rooms inside your Virginia home. If you are designing a new energy-efficient home, or if you need supplemental heating and cooling in specific areas of your existing home, learn how technologically-advanced Mitsubishi ductless systems can provide the most efficient and practical heating and cooling solution for your project.
