Ductless Mini-Split Benefits
Our customers love ductless systems for many reasons.
Ductless mini-splits don’t need ducts, which is great news for your electric bill. Why? Duct heating and cooling systems leak as much as 20 to 30 percent of air, which can have your unit run on overtime to make up for that air.
With a ductless system, you don’t have to worry about leaks. That can save you upwards of 30 percent in energy costs.
The average ductless mini-split installation takes between four to eight hours over a day or two, depending on the number of rooms. This is significantly less time than it takes to put in ductwork, which often equates to about one to four days.
To install the ductless system, we’ll put in a small hole (approximately three to five inches) on the outside of your home, connect wires, put in brackets, and add on the actual mini-split. You have a lot of flexibility in your outdoor unit’s location. For instance, it can often be as far as 50 feet from the indoor unit.
Imagine how convenient it’d be to make your baby’s room a different temperature than your master bedroom, where you’re used to sleeping with the fan by your bed every night. A ductless mini-split is the answer.
Not only can you set up timers for when to start and turn off the unit, but you can also change the heating and cooling system in each room or zone. Normal HVAC units are controlled by one thermostat, so there’s not as much customization available.
With mini-splits, you can heat and cool by zones at your leisure. That means that if your daughter is away at college, you don’t have to run the heating and cooling in her room. Ductless systems are a convenient way to heat and cool your home, as well as stay in control of the temperature.
Why Ductless Systems Are Worth It
If you’re used to central heating and cooling, you might not want to make the change. However, ductless systems can save you significant time and money in the long run. No other HVAC setup offers control over your temperatures quite like ductless.
Between the energy savings, flexible installation, and affordable rates, you can’t go wrong with this system. If you’re looking to get a heating and cooling unit that will work for years and that you can customize at your leisure, ductless is it.
