Are you thinking about installing a ductless mini split system in your home? Mini splits have become increasingly popular in recent years among homeowners due to the many benefits that they offer. Here are some of the many benefits of ductless mini splits to know about and to consider if you’re looking to install a new HVAC system in your home: Benefits of Ductless Mini Splits
The most obvious benefit of ductless mini splits is that they eliminate the need for complex and expensive ductwork that is required for traditional HVAC systems. This allows for permanent space heating and cooling systems to be installed in homes that were built before ductwork installation became commonplace. This also allows for better energy-saving solutions when it comes to cooling and heating your home as well.
Another benefit of mini splits is that they are more energy-efficient than traditional HVAC systems. The reason is because ductless mini split systems don’t have the same levels of energy loss that central HVAC systems do since they are designed without ducts. The energy savings that come with ductless systems is immense considering that as much as 30% of the air that is cooled or heated by your HVAC system is lost due to leaky air ducts. Most homeowners find that simply cooling or heating the areas of their homes that are in use via ductless systems and adjusting the temperature during the day and night saves them a lot of energy and money.
Air conditioners and heat pumps are less effective when it comes to cooling and heating than ductless systems. The main reason for this is that you’re only targeting one area or zone in your home at a time rather than trying to heat/cool your entire house at the same time. Moreover, mini splits allow you to heat and cool various areas of your home to different temperatures, which takes into account the preferences you have for how warm or cool you want a space to be. This allows you to make sure that the areas of your home that you want to have be warm/cool are at the desired temperatures, and energy isn’t needlessly wasted on other areas of your home that don’t need to be temperature-controlled as much.
Lastly, another huge advantage of installing a ductless system in your home is that you are able to adjust the temperature of each zone individually with a remote control and/or thermostat for each specific zone in your home. This is perfect for families who have different preferences when it comes to which areas they want to have be warmer or cooler, allowing everyone to be happy, and for the various areas of your home to be the temperatures they’re supposed to be.
