Ductless, mini-split system heat pumps make good retrofit add-ons to homes with "non-ducted" heating systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters (wood, kerosene or propane). They can also be a good choice for room additions, where extending or installing distribution ductwork is not feasible.
The main advantages of mini-splits are their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. Many models can have as many as four indoor air handling units (for four zones or rooms) connected to one outdoor unit. The number depends on how much heating or cooling is required for the building or each zone (which in turn is affected by how well the building is insulated). Since each of the zones will have its own thermostat, you only need to condition that space when someone is there. This will save energy and money.
