If you’re on the hunt for a new HVAC system, you may have encountered the term “mini split” several times throughout your research.
So, what is a mini split? A mini split is an efficient HVAC system that can provide both heat and air conditioning. It consists of an outdoor unit (called a compressor) and a single or multiple indoor units.
