There are loads of benefits associated with ductless mini-splits heating and cooling systems relative to the traditional ducted HVAC systems, including:
Traditional HVAC systems operate to keep each area of the home at the same temperature. With mini-splits, you’re able to shut off the heating and cooling in spaces that are unoccupied. By selectively choosing which areas to manage, you’re able to significantly cut back on your energy usage. Furthermore, ducting in traditional HVAC systems is known to lose as much as 30% of its energy via dissipation. It pays to be more efficient because the less energy you use the less you’ll have to pay. You’ll notice the savings right away on your heating and cooling bills.
Greater Temperature Control
Ductless mini-splits increase your control over how you zone your temperatures within your home. Indoor air handlers can be controlled by one thermostat or multiple. If you decide to go with a system where each air handler has its own thermostat you can tailor specific temperature requirements within each zone.
Fewer and Less Costly Repairs
The simple engineering of ductless mini-splits makes them easy to install and repair. It’s a much more straightforward process to repair a multi-zone mini-split system relative to a system that sprawls through every area of your home.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Air ducts contain lots of dirt, debris, and allergens that make your family sick. With ductless mini splits, the air circulates within its zone and doesn’t spread through the air ducts like with a traditional HVAC system. Dust, debris, and germs can all be contained in a zone, and with better indoor air quality, you may notice that your house is cleaner, too.
