Ductless mini-splits are quickly becoming a popular HVAC option for both residential and commercial spaces. A ductless mini-split provides many benefits, but you may not realize what you’re missing out on. Here are five reasons you need a ductless mini-split.
1. They’re Easy to Install
As ductless systems don’t have ducts, they’re far easier for a technician to install. They only need a 3-inch hole in a wall for a conduit. This makes your new HVAC system less intrusive in your walls and ceiling.
2. Greater Energy Efficiency
EnergyStar states that ducted HVAC systems lose between 25% and 40% of the energy they use to cool your home. Since a mini-split has no ducts, it doesn’t experience the energy loss that a traditional HVAC system does, which increases its energy efficiency. This can cut overall energy costs.
3. Improves Indoor Air Quality
When indoor air quality is often two to five times worse than the air outside, it only makes sense to take steps to keep your air clean. The ducts of a traditional HVAC system need regular cleaning to reduce the level of pollen, dust, allergens and other particulates in your home’s air.
4. Lowers Energy Bills
One of the biggest reasons people love mini-splits is the cost savings they experience. Since mini-splits provide the same level of comfort more efficiently with less power, this reduces your energy bill.
Another great thing about ductless mini-splits is that you can separate your home into zones. You can have your bedroom at a different temperature than your living room for different comfort needs. Each zone has a separate thermostat, which makes it easy to control.
