If you are looking for an affordable, space-saving option for cooling and heating your home, you should consider a ductless mini split system. They are more efficient than window units and require far less maintenance than central air. SmartHouse Heating and Cooling is a certified HVAC contractor, and we want to share the benefits of ductless mini split systems with our customers. If you are sick of lifting heavy window units but don’t want to go through the hassle of installing ducts, this may be your solution.
Benefits of Ductless Mini Split Systems
- Flexibility. Traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning systems heat or cool your home by forcing air through your ducts. Ductless systems are ideal for heating or cooling specific rooms in your home. Each system has an outdoor unit, as well as one or more indoor units that require nothing more than a wall mount and access to electricity. Installation is simple and only requires a small 3-inch hole in your wall to connect to the outside component.
- Savings. Because utility costs have risen over the years, you want to be sure that you’re saving money where you can. When a home’s temperature depends on an insufficient system, monthly bills can quickly increase. Ductless systems operate on less power – they are smaller than forced air systems. Because temperature controlled air is delivered directly to a room, there is no loss in efficiency.
- Improved air quality. Ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration that can drastically improve your home air quality. Dust, pollen, bacteria, and other particulates can worsen asthma symptoms or cause other breathing related illnesses to pop up in your home. Ductless mini split systems do a great job of filtering these contaminates out.
- Reduced carbon footprint. Ductless mini split systems take advantage of advantages in chemistry to reduce their effects on the environment. They use a refrigerant which is known for its zero ozone depletion potential – R410A. Because of this, ductless systems have less of an impact on the environment.
Ductless mini split cooling and heating systems are energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and completely customizable. Call SmartHouse today to speak with one of our HVAC specialists, or to schedule installation.
