An Efficient & Effective Way to Ensure Your Comfort

Firstly, if you want an efficient way to add to the comfort in your home, look no further than a ductless mini-split. Secondly, homeowners are getting to recognize the advantages of these highly efficient heating and air conditioning systems. For instance, they are comparable to central air systems but do not need air ducts to heat and cool your residence.

Ductless Mini-Split Benefits:

  • Design Flexibility - No Major Renovations Necessary
  • Zoned Control - Only Heat and Cool Rooms Where and When it is Needed
  • Energy Effcient - Save Money
  • Quicker to install - No Need for Ductwork

There are several advantages to choosing a Ductless Mini-Split system.

Design Flexibility

Traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning systems force cooled and heated air through ducts. However, ductless systems deliver air directly into different zones through individual air handlers. For instance, a system with one outdoor unit may have one or more indoor units. And yet, installation requires nothing more than mounting capabilities and access to electricity. Therefore, the hook-up between the outdoor and indoor units generally requires only a three-inch hole through a wall for the conduit. Above all, a ductless cooling and heating system offers home and business owners a cost-effective solution. For that reason, replacing inefficient window units, space heaters, and electric baseboard heaters is much more affordable.

Zoned Control

In addition, another of the advantages is the ability to zone temperatures. For example, larger systems can support up to four separate air handlers, and, as a result, each has its own thermostat. Thus, if you’re not using a room, and want to save energy, you can turn the air handler off at that location. Much the same way a zoning system for central HVAC equipment works, but more budget-friendly.

Save Money

Primarily, one of the biggest reasons why homeowners switch to ductless cooling and heating is cost savings. Therefore, if you currently have electric resistance heat or a window air conditioner, you could reduce your electric heating or cooling bill by 25-50%. In addition to saving money on utilities, you may also be eligible for tax credits or utility rebates.

Quicker to Install

Further, installing a forced-air system with ducts into an existing home can take several weeks. Subsequently, this usually disrupts daily activities in your home. On the other hand, ductless systems are far less invasive to install, so can be up and running in a shorter time.
