Mini-split AC systems have a lot in common with central HVAC units—the principal is the same, they are just shrunk down to a more manageable size. These compact units are affordable and easily customizable for any room. If you live in an apartment or a smaller house, a mini-split is a great choice for the amount of cooling power you are likely to need. Plus they offer heating as well, so they can provide comprehensive comfort year-round! However, it is extremely important if you are considering purchasing a mini-split system that you hire a technician who knows how to handle it, as they do have their own specific repair and maintenance needs.

Handling All of Your Mini-Split AC & Heating Services in Grand Rapids, MI
A lot of people assume that all mini-splits are “ductless” AC systems—aka that they do not require air ducts to operate. In fact, this is not true; there are several mini-split units that can be compatible with existing air ducts. However, ductless mini-splits are one of the most popular mini-split options, as they can easily be installed in apartments, smaller houses, and old homes with no ductwork. These systems have an indoor unit that distributes air and an outdoor heat pump, as opposed to central air systems, in which the indoor and outdoor units transfer air through your home through ducts and out of vents.
At Vander Hyde Services, we offer Grand Rapids ductless mini-split services and more, including:
- Mini-Split Installation & Repair
- Mini-Split Maintenance
- Mini-Split Inspections
- Mini-Split Refrigerant Refills
- Mini-Split Motor & Ran Replacement
- Mini-Split Coil Cleaning
- Mini-Split Filter Replacement
- Electric Component Service for Mini-Splits
Because a mini-split is basically a regular heat and AC unit in miniature, it has many of the same needs that a full-size air conditioner has. The key is to hire a technician that knows how to handle similar components in a smaller, more self-contained form. At Vander Hyde Services, we have been offering a wide variety of air conditioning installations and repairs since 1989, and can easily take care of all your mini-split needs.
Mini-Splits vs Space Heaters
If you want to focus heating on certain rooms of your house, you’ve probably either tried space heaters or considered purchasing one. And with both being popular choices for zoned heating, many people wonder, which one is best?
On a surface level, these two systems look the same, but they’re pretty different in terms of the experience you’ll receive using each. These are the main unique advantages a mini-split will provide:
Greater area of warmth - A mini-split will heat an entire room, so there is no huddling around the unit.
Energy efficiency - You can safely use a mini-split without being shocked by the resulting energy bill.
Safety - Space heaters are known safety hazards, causing thousands of house fires each year, while a mini split poses no more risk than any other HVAC system.
Cooling capabilities - You have the freedom to switch to AC whenever necessary.
