Benefits of Ductless Heating and Cooling

Are you looking for a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to cool and heat your home this spring? If so, you may want to consider a ductless mini split installation. This type of heating and cooling system consists of two main components. One is located outside, and the other is located on a nearby wall indoors. Together, these two components work to both heat and air condition specific rooms, or zones, in your home. Here’s how you can benefit from a ductless mini-split system:

  • Easy installation. Unlike central air that relies on extensive ductwork, a ductless mini-split system only requires a small hole in the exterior wall of your home. This houses the electric cables, condensation lines, and copper tubes that run between the condenser/compressor and the evaporators. This also means the installation costs are lower and there’s much less inconvenience to you and your family.
  • It offers flexibility. A mini-split system heats or cools the home according to zone. Each zone can be set to a different temperature depending on your preferences. For example, you can keep the living room at 65 degrees, the kitchen slightly lower at 62 degrees, and the bedrooms at 65 degrees. If you have guest rooms that you don’t use very often, you can set them to 60 degrees.
  • Cost efficiency. Because a ductless mini-split system allows you to heat the various zones in your home according to your preference, it consumes less energy. In addition, the absence of ducts — which add to the energy requirements of central air systems — helps lower energy consumption. At the end of the day, you’ll benefit from this reduced energy consumption with lower energy bills.
  • It’s environmentally friendly. By reducing your energy consumption, you’re also reducing your carbon footprint. Additionally, a ductless mini-split system uses an environmentally-friendly refrigerant, R410A. Unlike other types of refrigerants, this has zero ozone depletion and is much better for the environment.
  • Improved indoor air quality. While a central air system has an air filter at the HVAC itself, the air quality can diminish as the air is forced through the ducts and into the various rooms of the home. With a ductless mini-split system, each individual evaporator can be equipped with high-performance filters that filter dust, pollen, and other pollutants from the air. This can greatly improve the air you and your family breathe.
