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? Can I make my system more flexible? 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 deliver more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t require ductwork, they are generally 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 generate different comfort zones in your home. 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 customized to your home.
Mini-splits also offer positive returns 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 reduce your utility costs. With more control over the temperature in your home, you won’t waste energy heating or cooling spaces that don’t need it. Mini-splits can also help protect 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 start making your home comfortable.
A few of the more common reasons that people contemplate mini-split systems is if there is a room that is usually warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the house, or there are rooms that are typically unoccupied.
