Raleigh Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless Mini Split System Operation
Like a traditional central forced air system, ductless mini splits can effectively both heat and cool your home. If you do not have room for bulky ductwork, though, ductless systems have a clear advantage. While central heating and cooling systems rely on ductwork to distribute conditioned air throughout your home, ductless mini splits feature indoor units, usually wall mounted, that provide heating and cooling directly. There is no need for ductwork or air registers at all.
Ductless mini splits, like central air systems, have an outdoor unit containing the system’s compressor. Unlike central air systems, though, ductless mini splits use only a conduit to connect the indoor and outdoor components of the system. This conduit contains refrigerant tubing and a power cable, requiring only a small, 3 inch hole to be drilled in the wall for installation.
Why Go Ductless?
In addition to easy, unobtrusive installation, ductless mini split systems are small and easy to use. Their design lends itself to zoning, helping to further boost energy efficiency in your home. Most models can have up to four air handlers connected to the outdoor unit, allowing for easy, room–by–room heating and cooling. Each indoor unit is controlled by its own thermostat, meaning that each room or temperature zone can be individually controlled.
While zoning capability may help increase energy efficiency, the real benefit of ductless mini split systems lies simply in its lack of ductwork. Duct systems are not only obtrusive and difficult to install. The energy loss associated with them can account for nearly 30% of space conditioning energy losses. That’s a pretty good incentive to eliminate ducts from your home comfort system. Add to that the fact that the indoor air handlers can be installed in a variety of ways and locations and you are left with a heating and cooling option well worth your consideration.
Ideal Application for a Ductless Mini Split
Ductless mini-splits are a terrific solution for homes and businesses where installing ducts is too costly. The combination of an air handler inside and a condenser outside is a reliable choice for many people. Single zone A/C units come in sizes of 9,000 to 36,000 BTUH total capacity and from 13 SEER all the way to 26 SEER! The indoor units can be installed on any outside wall and a small hole will be needed to connect the two components

Jeff designed a great Mitsubishi Mini Split for my new Music Room. Julio and Marlon did a great job on the initial pre-plumb, and Julio and Jake returned to finish the install. I did have one minor glitch, and Jeff sent Barry out to take care of that. Great equipme...
Have had nothing but positive experience working with R&S. Brittany is the front end of the company and does a great job representing company. friendly, pleasant and helpful. Provides accurate information and follows up as she says.
I had R and S come out to my house for the second time in the last couple of years to fix an issue with our heating system, and they were able to show up quickly and promptly and fix the issue the same day. The folks I have dealt with at R and S have all been very friendly and helpful in explaining the two issues with our heater thus far. We've had very good experiences and would definitely recommend to other homeowners.
I would recommend R & S Mechanical at any time for those who are looking for professionalism and ability to make a major job look like it's a minor one. I contacted R & S as one of 5 suppliers and service companies to install a new unit in my house. Even though price was a factor, but I was also looking to work with an organization that would be honest and caring. I did find such values with R & S. They were the only one out of the five who actually called to follow up on their offer and ensure that everything was well explained and clear. Absolutely great guys and they made sure to keep the place clean after they left. I definitely made the right choice.
I have dealt with R&S since I moved to Raleigh four years ago and they have taken consistently good care of my HVAC units. They are prompt, professional, courteous and definitely pick up after themselves. They even call me to schedule regular maintenance that comes with my service contract instead of me having to remember. I can get an appointment very quickly if something breaks on me and they always arrive early. I'm overall very satisfied.
I have always been pleased with their service. They are quick to respond, even on weekends. I would definitely recommend them.
Our overall experience with R&S has been exceptional. We have been homeowners for over 30 years and have never had better service, concern and respect as we have received from R&S. Highly recommend.

Our AC system failed on a Friday afternoon at our Daughter's condo. Shortly after our call, Randy and Mike came to our condo, diagnosed the unit and loaned us portable cooling units over the weekend. They installed a new system and got us up and running the following Tuesday. Their prices and service were great! Very responsive, very straight forward, no hard sell unlike the big companies. Highly recommended - excellent service!
