Can A Ductless Mini Split Handle the Wyoming Winter?

Monday, September 11th, 2023

If you’re considering investing in a ductless mini split, you may be wondering if these systems can keep up with the extremely cold conditions we see here in Wyoming. The short answer is, yes. A ductless mini split can handle heating your home. If you have any concerns about the level of heating provided, there are some ways that we can help.

You can keep reading to learn more about ductless mini splits in Campbell County, WY. We can offer you an in-home assessment and review how a ductless mini split would be set up in your home and how it would operate. We can also offer feedback about heating with the systems so you understand how they work.

How Does a Ductless Mini Split Work?

A ductless mini split unit uses a heat pump system for heating and cooling your home. This means that it cycles refrigerant in one direction when you have your air conditioner set on cooling and removes heat from your home. When you set your ductless mini split to heating, the refrigerant reverses directions and begins to bring heat into your home instead. 

A ductless mini split is completely unique from any other type of air conditioner or heater. In addition to the way it operates, a ductless mini split also has multiple small units that are stationed around your home and connect to one single central outdoor unit. You can set individual temperatures for each room or zone of your home where a mini split is installed. 

Heating Benefits

Other heater options rely on combustion-based heating or heating elements. With combustion, the gas furnace uses an open flame to create hot air to blow into your home, which poses a small risk of fire or gas leaks. Even electrical heating elements are less safe than a heat pump.

The extreme temperatures created by these elements to warm the air pose similar fire hazards. A heat pump doesn’t have the same risk factors. With a heat pump, heat is transferred instead of created so you don’t have the worry as much about the system overheating or causing a fire. 

Plus, heat pumps are more efficient at creating heat. Heaters that use combustion or heating elements use up a lot of energy in those processes. Transferring heat through the refrigerant lines of a heat pump uses less energy, so your energy costs may be lower. Plus, the reduced demand on the system eliminates some strain. This can extend the life of your heat pump since it doesn’t have to work as hard to produce results.

Heating Downsides

Of course, like everything else, a heat pump does have some negatives. When it is extremely cold outside, especially for a long period of time, a heat pump may not be able to keep up with warming your home as efficiently as you want it to.

If you find that this is a problem for your family, you can give us a call and we can install a small add-on furnace that can provide backup heating to complement your heat pump. It’s a service that we complete for many homeowners in the area.
