If you’re in the market for a new heating and cooling system, you likely have a lot of questions. Is there a ductless solution that will work for my home? What if I want to integrate zoning to my home? Is there a flexible system? If you’re struggling with 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 involve ductwork, they are usually easier to install. All it requires is an interior unit on an exterior wall and an outdoor condensing unit. For extra 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 an ideal solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while giving you the chance to create a heating and cooling system tailored 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 use ducts, less energy is wasted during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can help your utility bill too. With more control over the temperature in your space, you won’t spend extra money heating or cooling areas that aren’t used. Mini-splits can also help guard your home. Traditional wall and window units can leave your home more prone to break-ins or intruders. Mini-splits only require a three-inch hole through your wall to get started on the path to home comfort.
Several of the more common reasons that people think about 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 space, or there are rooms that are normally unoccupied.
