If your home’s heating and cooling system needs upgrading, you likely have a lot of questions. Is there a ductless solution that will work for my home? What if I want to add zoning to my home? Are there more flexible options? If you’re wondering about any of these questions, a mini-split system may be the ideal product for your home comfort needs.
Mini-splits can offer more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t need ductwork, they are typically easier to install. All it takes is an interior unit on an exterior wall and an outdoor condensing unit. For additional flexibility, one outdoor unit can support up to five indoor units, depending upon the specific model. That means you can create different comfort zones within your space. Mini-splits are a wonderful solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while letting you create a heating and cooling system customized to your home.
Mini-splits also provide advantages for your home’s energy efficiency and security. According to Energy.gov, more than 30 percent of the energy you use heating and cooling your home comes from the temperature lost through your ducts. Because mini-split systems don’t require ducts, less energy is wasted during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can reduce your utility costs. With more control over the temperature in your house, you won’t waste energy heating or cooling spaces that don’t need it. Mini-splits can also help guard your home. Traditional wall and window units can leave your home more susceptible to break-ins or intruders. Mini-splits only require a three-inch hole through your wall to begin heating and cooling your home.
Some of the most common reasons that people contemplate mini-split systems is if there is a room that is typically warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the home, or there are rooms that are typically unoccupied.
