Choosing a ductless mini split HVAC system over a traditional ducted heating or cooling system has a lot of advantages. For example, ductless mini splits are far less invasive to install and are often more energy-efficient than ducted systems. However, one of the main downsides of ductless splits is that they aren’t as inconspicuous as their ducted counterparts. If you don’t want your HVAC system to stand out in your home, consider implementing these clever ways to hide a ductless mini split system.
Tuck It Into a Recessed Wall
One way to make a mini split system less noticeable in your home is to tuck it into a recessed wall. When installing a mini split into a recessed wall, the system will not jet out into your living space the same way it would if it was on a completely flat wall. As such, the mini split will not be as noticeable in your home.
Build a Bookcase, Entertainment Console, or Cabinet Around It
Another option for minimizing the appearance of a mini split in your space is to build a structure around it. For example, if you have a wall-mounted mini split, you could consider building a bookcase around it. If you have a floor-mounted mini split, perhaps building an entertainment console or cabinet around the system would work better. In any case, building a structure around your ductless split will help mask its appearance and allow it to blend into your space more seamlessly.
Hide It in the Ceiling
Installing your mini split in the ceiling is yet another clever way to hide a ductless mini split system. Mini split systems come in several different configurations—including ceiling cassette configurations. Ceiling mount mini split systems are one of the most unnoticeable options, as they are designed to be mounted as recessed into the ceiling. On such systems, only the decorative air exchange panel which does not protrude from the ceiling will be visible.
