Installing a ductless mini split in my kitchen

I recently invested into a ductless mini split system for my kitchen.

For many years, I was unhappy with the level of comfort in the kitchen.

Because of various remodeling projects and changes to the layout of the home, this area ended up with an insufficient number of supply and return vents. The area was consistently cold in the winter and overheated in the summer. Since it’s the room where my family spends the most amount of time, this was a big problem. I tried electric space heaters, a window air conditioner and box fans. These options failed to provide sufficient relief from the weather, took up a great deal of space and detracted from the decor. I wanted something compact, unobtrusive and permanently installed. I researched and discovered ductless heat pumps. This type of system installs in a single afternoon without causing any mess or damage. It consists of an outdoor compressor and indoor air handler that are linked by way of a slender conduit. Set up requires little more than a three-inch hole in an exterior wall and access to electricity. The outdoor compressor is not overly big and operates so quietly that I can’t tell if it’s running or not. The indoor air handler is lightweight, streamlined and mounted up high on the wall. It features an independent thermostat and allows adjustment of temperature, fan speed and even the direction of airflow. Inverter technology automatically adjusts the output of the ductless unit to match the demands of the room. It provides precisely the amount of heating or cooling required to maintain ideal indoor temperature. The system is wonderfully energy efficient, powerful and quiet. I am totally thrilled with it.
