Single-Zone Mini Split Installation in Keene, NH
How Do Single-Zone Mini Splits Work?
A single-zone mini-split system is a type of ductless heating and cooling unit that is ideal for regulating the temperature in a specific area or room within a building. This system consists of an outdoor compressor unit and an indoor air handling unit, connected by a conduit carrying power and refrigerant lines. The mini-split system operates by transferring heat between the indoor and outdoor units. In the cooling mode, it absorbs heat from the indoor air and moves it outdoors, while in the heating mode, it performs the opposite action. This system's ability to control the temperature in individual zones results in improved energy efficiency and comfort.

What Are the Benefits of a Single-Zone System?
Unlike a regular mini-split system that controls the temperature of multiple zones or rooms within a building, a single-zone mini-split system focuses on one specific area or room. This key difference allows the single-zone system to provide precise temperature control in its designated area, which may lead to more energy efficiency and cost savings.
Benefits of a single-zone mini-split system include:
- Precision temperature control: Each unit controls the temperature in a specific room, offering more precise temperature regulation.
- High energy efficiency: Because it cools or heats only one area, it often uses less energy compared to cooling or heating an entire building.
- Near silent operation: Single-zone mini-splits are known for their quiet operation, causing minimal noise disturbance.
- Easy installation: As they don't require ductwork, these systems can be easily installed in any room without major renovations.
- Cost savings: They can lead to significant savings on utility bills due to their more efficient operation. In some cases, they may even qualify for energy efficiency tax credits or rebates.

Can I Install a Single-Zone System on My Own?
Unlike traditional HVAC systems, single-zone mini splits are compact with minimal moving parts, making it an accessible installation project for any homeowner. However, a professional installer will ensure that the system is installed correctly, optimizing its performance and lifespan. A poorly installed system can lead to inefficiencies, frequent breakdowns, and may even void the manufacturer's warranty.
What temperature should I set my thermostat at?
There are many opinions on what temperature to set your thermostat to. Remember, comfort always trumps energy savings. If using a hyper-heat system, we suggest you “set it and forget it.” It makes no sense to roll back your thermostat to save energy use when you are at work for the day only to return home and make your HVAC system work harder (using more energy) to get you comfortable. In fact, it uses more energy and wears on the system components quicker. You didn’t unplug your refrigerator when you went to work in the morning so why would you unplug your HVAC system to try to save energy?
How much does new HVAC equipment cost?
Equipment installation pricing can vary, depending on what brand and efficiency of equipment you want to look at. With a little information from you we can typically provide a good budget estimate digitally so you can determine direction. We can provide a wide range of pricing for you. In this day and age we encourage you to always add the word “installed” to your internet cost search. The old adage “You get what you pay for” applies. Be wary of contractors that show up with vans that don’t clearly identify who they are or have State required license numbers indicated. The best way to get a definitive price is to have one of our specialists come to the house and discuss all of your options.
What kind of filter should I use, and when should I change it?
It depends on the type of HVAC system you have. Usually 1” Pleated Media MERV 8 filters work best, however you must be sure the HVAC system has enough static pressure available to support the pressure loss for the air filter you utilize. Follow the manufacturers guidelines regarding air filter choice and change frequency.
