Residents who are considering upgrading to a new HVAC system will want to explore all the perks that come from choosing a mini-split system. These systems are not new, but they’re growing in popularity in the U.S. for several different reasons. They’re efficient, work great in nontraditional spaces (garages, sunrooms, etc.), and they offer impressive savings for Massachusetts residents who choose a system that cashes in on the rebate incentives.
Let’s take a look at the biggest perks of these systems.
The small size of these systems is one feature many people love. They can be installed in almost any size room and give you the option to create various zones throughout your house without installing huge appliances or cooling units. Since they don’t take up a lot of space, they’ll blend in and probably won’t even be noticed by most.
These systems are also very flexible. You can install them to create a unique cooling layout in your home, choose your zones for different comfort levels, and so forth. These systems are quick and easy to install so they can really be used just about everywhere for heating and cooling. Plus, when they’re cooling, these systems are also removing excess humidity from the air.
Ductless Heating and Cooling
The benefit of ductless heating and cooling is another popular one. Without ducts, you don’t have to worry about duct cleaning or any potential germs or contaminants building up in the ducts. You’ll also use less energy because you’re not attempting to move the air throughout the entire house, so the system will be more efficient, too.
Mass Save Rebates
And of course, we can’t forget the huge Mass Save rebates that are being offered right now on several different HVAC systems, including mini-split heat pumps and others. These rebates are giving thousands of dollars back to residents of the state when they upgrade to a new energy-saving mini-split system that qualifies for the rebate program.
This program offers rebates for the installation of specific heat pumps and/or mini-split systems, so be sure to talk to your contractor when choosing the right system for your home. Most contractors will even take care of the rebate paperwork for you, saving you a lot of hassle.
The Bottom Line
Mini-split systems offer tons of perks. They even have smart features and can be scaled to the needs of any size home. They’re versatile and efficient, and give you the chance to create a temperate home in every room, no matter how many rooms you have. The only real drawback is that you have the units on the wall, but they’re hardly a bother once you start reaping all the benefits.
You should talk to your installer to learn more about all of the benefits that come from upgrading to a mini-split system. They will also be the ones to help you through the rebate process, ensuring that you get every dime that’s owed to you for installing your new energy-efficient heat pump or mini-split cooling system.
