This session explores both ductless and ducted mini splits, with a focus on the latter. Performance and operation for cooling and heating is discussed, with a focus on cold climate heat pump operation. Case studies on basic installations for older homes and on inverter-driven ducted mini-split systems are shared, highlighting the impact they have on low load, high-performance homes.
As a result of this recorded session, you will be able to:
Discuss real world examples of a ducted heating and cooling system.
Describe how inverter technology has opened up more applications for residential construction.
Explain why duct design is important for proper flow and operation.
Describe how these system could work on low load, high performance homes.
Who should watch?
Builders, remodelers, HVAC contractors, HVAC system designers, code officials, architects, home design professionals, building performance professionals, energy auditors, students, educators, apprentices and anyone with knowledge and interest in ductless and ducted mini splits.

Mike has been involved in the HVAC and energy industry since 1981 and has been involved as a service manager working with all aspects of mini splits at a wholesale house since 1997. He has designed, installed, commissioned and trained on many ducted heat pump mini split systems. Mike worked for Shelter Supply and currently for Dakota Supply Group in training, field site assistance, technical support and building/mechanical system design/diagnostics. Mike is comfortable with talking about the “System Approach” which is how the components of the HVAC system, the structure of the house, and the homeowner interact together.
