Ductless mini-split AC systems are gaining a lot of popularity as of late, as more people search for flexible solutions for cooling their homes. Popular across Australia and parts of Europe for decades, these systems are just now trumping the standard central air unit in popularity among homeowners searching for a new cooling solution for their home.
The ductless mini-split aircon system offers unique flexibility and room-by-room climate control to keep your home cooler with less energy. Instead of one system working to cool the entire home, each room has a unit that is responsible for keeping it cool—saving energy and speeding up the cooling process. Still not sure that these systems are for you?
Take a minute to check out five features that you can’t overlook with these systems, and then reconsider your decision.
Mini-split air conditioners are the choice of anyone who wants a flexible cooling system. The ductless mini-split has air handlers that can be installed in any room that you want to cool and you can create the perfect temperature zones throughout your house, no matter what you desire. You can install as few or as many of these handlers in the rooms throughout your home, giving you the perfect custom cooling system.
Not only are you going to save energy because these systems offer more reliable cooling solutions. You’re also saving money and energy because you’re not dealing with the 30% of energy that’s lost in traditional ductwork during the cooling process. Over time, ductless systems use less energy and can help reduce your carbon footprint, too, making them a great choice.
If you’re still not sold here, consider the tax breaks and financial incentives available when you upgrade to an eco-friendlier cooling option like the mini-split system.
Even if you have never had a mini-split system, the installation is relatively quick and effortless. The handlers will be installed, the outdoor condenser will be installed, and then the conduit will run the electricity and airflow, as well as the refrigerant, from the outdoor unit to each air handler accordingly. Installation only takes a day or two in most cases, when done by an expert.
These systems work with patented inverter technology that allows the unit to only generate the exact amount of cooling needed. Unlike a central air system that could run for hours unnecessarily because it’s trying to keep up with the outside, this system shuts off regularly and helps maintain a more temperate balance throughout the home.
Regular filter changes and maintenance are simple on mini-split systems. As long as you change filters monthly and have the system inspected at least once a year, you should be able to enjoy years of use with your mini-split system. A central air unit may require additional maintenance and upkeep over the years, and they don’t last nearly as long as mini-splits, either.
If you’re willing to spend a little more upfront, these and many other benefits will be yours when you choose a ductless mini-split air conditioning system.
