In the world of heating and cooling, the choices can seem overwhelming. Whether you’re building a new home, renovating an existing one, or simply looking to upgrade your current HVAC system, the decision-making process can leave you feeling confused.

Indoor Comfort Team, your trusted HVAC professionals in St. Louis, Missouri, are here to shed light on a game-changing solution: the mini split system.


With over four decades of expertise dating back to 1979, Indoor Comfort Team has been at the forefront of delivering top-tier HVAC solutions to customers on both sides of the river in St. Louis. Our commitment to excellence and innovation has led us to explore the unparalleled benefits of mini split systems over traditional HVAC setups.

So, what exactly makes mini split systems stand out? Let’s dive into the top benefits!


  1. High Efficiency
    The biggest benefit of a mini split systems is that it is far more efficient than your traditional HVAC system. They contain some very sophisticated technology when it comes to the HVAC industry that utilizes inverter technology to convert high-voltage electricity into DC voltage. This allows them to run with very little energy.

    SEER ratings for mini-split systems show ratings over 30 for both the heating and cooling sides of the unit comparted to the average 13-21 SEER in a traditional unit.

    They also utilize variable-speed compressors vs the one or two speed compressors that most traditional units have. This allows them to run as much or as little as needed instead of switching on and off more like your traditional unit.

    The high efficiency of the unit and it only running when the space is occupied will definitely save you money on energy bills. Give us a call at (314)230-9542 to learn more about mini split systems and our great financing offers.


  1. Built-In ZoningAnother bonus of mini split systems is their built-in zoning. Since mini split systems can be installed in individual spaces or as a larger mini split system with multiple indoor units, you have the ability to heat or cool only specific areas.This allows for the precise control over your home’s comfort. If you have a room that never seems to be the right temperature, or rooms that are used more than others, this is an ideal solution to avoid having to heat or cool the entire house when you’re only using a smaller portion as you can control different temperature settings for each room.

    Mini split systems can also be used as a supplement to your traditional system for those rooms that with temperature control.


  1. Easier Installation
    Ductwork has several great benefits, but it can also be a major hassle. Cleaning, maintenance, and modifications can all rack up the cost and time.

    Some slab homes will lack ductwork entirely or don’t have room to have it installed. In these cases, a ductless mini split system is the best alternative.

    Another benefit of a mini split system is that installation does not require major construction work. Only a small hole is required to run the refrigerant piping and wiring between the outdoor and indoor units. This allows for installation how and where you want it, even when space is limited.

  1. Better Air QualityUnlike your traditional system that uses ductwork that can become dirty or clogged, a mini split system uses a small conduit to connect the indoor and outdoor units which eliminates the ductwork. This equals better air quality for your home because there is no chance of dust, allergens, or other debris accumulating inside the ducts and causing respiratory issues.Most mini split systems also have multi-stage filtration systems that will trap and remove harmful particles (such as dust, mold, and bacteria) from the air. This ensures that the air being circulated through your home is clean and healthy.

    If you or someone that lives in your home has allergy or respiratory problems, a ductless mini split system would be a great solution for indoor air quality.


  1. Quieter OperationQuieter operation is another big benefit of a mini split system vs. a traditional HVAC unit. Ductless mini split systems are much quieter than your traditional HVAC system.The indoor unit for a mini split are smaller and operate with much less noise. Never will you hear ductwork cracking, popping, or thumping as it contracts and expands throughout your house.

They are much smaller than your traditional HVAC systems.These units are idea for small homes, apartments, and even odd shaped spaces. You don’t need a separate dedicated room for your unit. You will save this space by mounting a mini split directly to the wall.


  1. Ease of MaintenanceThe last benefit of a mini split system that we’ll highlight today is their ease of maintenance.
