Ductless mini-splits are becoming an increasingly popular choice for heating and cooling systems in homes across the country. But what are they, and why might they be right for you? In this blog post, we will discuss some of the pros of a ductless mini-split system. If you are considering installing one in your home, be sure to read on!
What is a Ductless Mini-Split?
A ductless mini-split is a heating and cooling system that operates without the use of a system of ductwork. It creates warm and cool air with the help of a heat pump and is made up of one indoor and one outdoor component.
Mini-splits are a great option for those looking to save big on their energy bills. Heat pumps transfer heat rather than generate it like a traditional air conditioning system, meaning that your ductless mini-split will use up to 60% less energy!
Ease of Installation
A ductless mini-split, as the name suggests, does not rely on ducts to carry air throughout your home. This makes their installation much easier, faster, and more affordable.
A mini-split works best as a climate control solution for individual rooms. Each room will have its own mini-split, allowing you to adjust the temperature by space. By zoning your heating and cooling needs, you avoid having to pay more to heat and cool those rooms you may not use as often.
Increased Air Quality
Ductwork allows dirt, dust, and other airborne contaminants to settle and combine with the air forced through them by a central air system. By eliminating ductwork, you take the contaminants out of the equation, resulting in better air quality for your home.
You won’t have to worry about turning the TV volume up or talking over a mini-split. They operate very quietly thanks to their smaller size!
