What Is a Mini Split?
A Mini Split is a type of ductless heating and cooling systems allowing you to control the temperature in individual rooms or spaces. Mini split heat pumps can therefore both cool and heat your home.
However, unlike furnaces or AC units, each mini-split unit can be set to your desired temperature. You don’t have to be stuck with only being able to turn it on or off.
Another key distinction between mini-splits and traditional heating or cooling systems is that they’re ductless. Instead of ductwork, each indoor mini-split unit uses a few smaller lines run to it.
Since a mini split AC doesn’t have to condition the air in your entire home, they are also more efficient. When put in heating mode, they can be anywhere from 2-4 times more efficient than a traditional furnace or boiler.

How Does a Mini-Split Work?
In cooling mode, your mini-split units will move heat from inside your home to the outside, similar to an AC unit. The key difference is that mini-splits don’t blow air from a single “air handler” that moves through ducts. Mini-splits will blow air from 6 separate air handlers, allowing for zone control. So while they function similarly, mini-splits blow cool air from a different point than your typical AC unit.

Benefits of Mini-Splits
The most noticeable benefit for homeowners is the money they saved on energy bills after installing mini-splits. Sure, the initial installation can be expensive, but after some, you’ll notice a smaller bill and a more comfortable indoor environment.
Another key benefit of mini-splits is the ability to target zones in your home. If not every room or space in your home needs heating or cooling, you can simply not install a unit in that zone. This isn’t possible with a traditional heating or cooling system, which distributes conditioned air throughout your home and tends to lose energy to the ducts.

Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
