Wondering if mini-splits are better than central air? We can help determine what would make the most sense for your home or space.
Often times, for condos, smaller homes or specific areas or rooms, a ductless system offers you a great solution.
How does ductless work?
Traditional central A/C systems and heat pumps force cooled and heated air through ducts, ductless systems deliver air directly into specific zones with no ductwork. They consist of a smaller outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that require nothing more than mounting capabilities and access to electricity.
Does a ductless system save you money?
Yes! This is one of the biggest reasons homeowners switch to ductless heating and cooling systems. When a home is being heated or cooled with an inefficient system, utility bills soar. Ductless systems operate on less power, are smaller than traditional forced-air systems, and because the temperature-controlled air is delivered directly into a room, there is no loss in efficiency. There are multi-split systems which allow homeowners to create zones in their home as well. This option means you no longer have to heat or cool unoccupied rooms.
Is it hard to install a mini-split?
No! Ductless systems are far less invasive to install and, depending upon the number of units required, can be up and running in as little as a day. They also run on small pipes so they only require a 3 inch hole which means you save on rebuilding walls or ceilings around ductwork.
Is a ductless heating and cooling system better for the environment?
Yes! Since the size of a ductless system is smaller and has zoning capabilities this allows for greater energy efficiency. This efficiency not only helps to reduce your carbon footprint, it also lowers your energy bills. Ductless systems use a refrigerant called R410A. This particular refrigerant has zero ozone depletion potential. This means your carbon footprint is much smaller for the lifecycle of this system.
Ductless systems reduce dust, bacteria, pollen and other allergens. They lower your carbon footprint while providing you with precise comfort. If you are interested in a ductless mini-split, contact us today!
