Whether your current central HVAC system isn’t keeping your home comfortable or you’re looking for ways to reduce your energy usage, the answer could be a ductless mini-split system. Not sure if this is the right choice for you? Here are six reasons you should consider one for your home.
Now, what is a ductless mini-split air conditioning system?
A conditioning system that is designed to keep your home cool using a simple and innovative process. A condenser placed outside retracts air from outdoors; that air is channeled through piping, delivering the right amount of cold air to each room, rather than ducts that are expensive to install.
These units are mounted directly into the wall, then supply comfortable air from the outdoors. Typically, each unit comes with its own thermostat for you to customize temperatures in rooms throughout the house.
1. You Can Create Comfort Zones
Sick and tired of playing thermostat tug-of-war with other family members? Most of us have different preferences when it comes to ambient temperature. Some like it warmer, while others prefer it cooler. It’s impossible to make everyone happy with a conventional HVAC system, but with ductless mini-splits, you can create comfort zones so that everyone has their own happy place that’s just the right temperature all year long.
2. You Don’t Have to Heat or Cool Your Entire Home
There’s lots of unused space that you must heat or cool. That’s a waste of resources, energy, and money. Why should you cool the entire home if you’re only using one or two rooms? With a ductless mini-split system, you can get around that problem easily and only heat or cool the space that you’re using at the time.
3. There’s No Ductwork to Worry About
True to the name, ductless mini-split systems do not require air ducts to work. That makes them ideal for spaces where ductwork cannot be installed, would take up too much room, or would just be an eyesore. Plus, without ducts, you don’t have to worry about additional insulation, cleaning the ducts every year, and other hassles common to central HVAC systems.
4. They’re Super-Efficient
Ductless mini-splits are very efficient – far more so than most central heating and air systems. They achieve this through EnergyStar design, but also because they heat and cool much smaller spaces. That combination can help ensure that you stay comfortable all year long while simultaneously reducing your utility bills.
5. Cost Effective
The mere ability to adjust the temperature of each room individually makes mini-split air conditioning systems cost effective. Instead of cooling spaces unevenly, mini-split ductless systems only make use of energy as per requirement and keep each room at a comfortable cooling temperature for optimum effect and end up saving extra electricity costs. This also helps ensure that multiple temperature zones are controlled independently of one another.
6. Improvement in air quality and allergy control
Over time, ductwork widely collects allergens from its surroundings, and this ends up causing one of the major issues with central air conditioning systems, and that is the air quality of the room. The ductless mini-split systems are more efficient in that way, and the lines that supply air from the outdoor condenser stay clean with the help of a network of filters, which eventually provide fresh and allergen-free air throughout your home.
7. They Can Dehumidify Your Space
Humidity is terrible. It leaves you feeling sticky and uncomfortable, and can accelerate the growth of mold and mildew, too. Thankfully, a ductless mini-split system can actually help you combat humidity with a built-in dehumidifier. It’s never been easier to remove excess moisture from your living spaces, ensuring that you’re able to stay comfortable while reducing the chance that mold or mildew will gain a foothold.
8. They Fit into Any Home Layout
Finally, consider the fact that ductless mini-split systems are incredibly flexible. There’s an option for just about any room shape or size, whether you’re heating and cooling a downstairs living room or you’re trying to find a solution to an odd-shaped upstairs room.
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to consider a ductless mini-split system for your home. If you’re ready to experience the difference this technology can make in your life, we’ll be happy to discuss your options and give you a custom quote based on your needs.
