Why should I consider a Ductless Mini-Split System?

When it comes to choosing a new HVAC system to keep your house comfortable throughout the year, you want to be sure you’re making the right decision. A ductless mini-split air conditioning system offers many benefits and advantages over other types of AC units. Consider the following when deciding what unit you will choose for your home.

The 5 Biggest Advantages of a Ductless Mini-Split

family-footer1. Highly Energy Efficient

A ductless system’s most immediate advantage over ducted systems is energy savings. Imperfections in an air duct system can allow air to escape and waste energy. A ductless system can save you up to 30% in energy costs that would have been lost in ducts.

2. Enhanced Comfort With Zoning

If you’re familiar with the concept of zoned AC then you know this is a big benefit for conditioning the rooms that need it most. Each room that houses a ductless system will have its own thermostat so that it can be tweaked separate from the rest of the house, allowing you to customize your home’s comfort to perfectly suit your needs.

3. Easier Installation

Ductless mini-splits allow for much easier installation thanks to the low profile of the indoor unit and it’s requiring only a 3-inch wall hole for the outside unit conduit. The outdoor compressor can support up to four indoor units and can be installed up to 50 feet from the indoor units as well, making placement of multiple units a breeze.

4.   Accommodates Interior Designs

Unlike a window unit or ducted indoor system, a mini-split’s indoor component is easily able to fit into any interior style, with most being about 7 inches deep and coming with modern jackets to blend into any room. You can even get decorative covers for your ductless units if you want to further enhance your interior design.

5.  Safer Than Traditional Systems

Standard AC units that have large pipes and ducts going through your outside walls, along with window mounted units, can allow unwanted access to your home from the outside. Given the ductless design and small profile of a mini-split, such access simply isn’t possible.
