Mini Splits for Heating
Looking for a flexible and energy efficient way to heat your Phoenix home?

Turn your central heating and cooling off and just run your mini split to heat only the room you’re in!
Why Upgrade to Ducted or Ductless Mini Split Heat Pumps?
With so many HVAC options to choose from, there are plenty of reasons why more and more Arizona homeowners are replacing their AC units and furnaces with mini split heat pump systems.
1. Mini splits save money
Mini splits are a type of heat pump, and heat pumps work by transferring heat from one location to another, instead of creating it. This is a very energy efficient process, which is why homes with mini splits have significantly lower energy costs than those using more traditional HVAC systems.
Heat pumps are especially efficient in our Arizona climate, as our mild winters help keep your mini split operating at a higher rate of efficiency while in heating mode.
2. Mini splits can both heat and cool your home
Many mini splits have both heating and cooling settings, allowing you to benefit from energy saving home comfort year-round. That mini split you bought to keep your Phoenix home warm in the winter can be just as useful to keep you cool in the middle of summer.
3. Many mini splits don’t require ductwork to operate
Mini splits come in both ductless and ducted models. Ducted mini splits, like traditional split heat pump systems, have an outdoor unit and an indoor air handler which connects to your home’s central duct system. Ductless mini splits work by installing the air handler unit directly in the room or area of your home you’re looking to warm or cool, which is controlled by either a remote control or a WiFi enabled thermostat.
With ductless heat pumps, one of the benefits is that you don’t have to worry about energy waste or indoor air quality issues that can result from leaky ducts. And the indoor air handlers come in a variety of shapes and models to help you find the perfect look for your home’s interior design, including:
- High wall cassettes
- Ceiling cassettes
- Floor mounted units
- Recessed ceiling cassettes
4. Mini splits can be used for zoned heating and cooling
Mini split systems can have multiple indoor air handlers connected to the same outdoor unit, and because each air handler has it’s own comfort settings, many Arizona homeowners use mini splits to separate their home into different comfort “zones” with their own temperature settings.
That way, if you like your bedroom to be a little warmer at night during the winter, but don’t want to waste energy (and money) keeping your kitchen at the same temperature, you have that option! Zoned heating and cooling gives you more control over the comfort of your home, and can save money as well.
5. Mini splits can keep your garage or addition warm in the winter
Mini splits aren’t just used to replace existing ducted heating and cooling systems. Many homeowners install single mini split units in rooms or areas without duct access, like garages, Arizona rooms or glass sunrooms, or even new single room additions, so you can stay warm while using that room in the winter.
6. Great Manufacture Warranties on Mitsubishi Mini Splits
Another benefit is the long warranties on Mitsubishi Mini Splits that are installed by a Mitsubishi Ductless Pro dealer like Ideal Energy! Rest easy knowing that if the unforeseeable happens with your Mitsubishi mini split, your compressor and parts are covered for 12 years if installed by Ideal Energy!
