Benefits of Ductless Mini-Split Systems
As we know, cooling system technologies have come a long way. While many people still think of “traditional” window style AC units as the norm, we’d be remiss if we didn’t inform you about the benefits of using a ductless mini-split system. Ductless mini-splits provide great cooling comfort as well as warmth during the cooler seasons.
Comprised of a small outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air handler, ductless mini-split systems work similar to central air systems but on a smaller, more defined scale. Ductless mini-split air conditioning has become the popular choice for homes and businesses where traditional cooling systems can’t be feasibly installed for financial or real estate reasons.
Part of the beauty of a ductless mini-split system is right in the name of the product itself – it’s ductless. A significant benefit of having a ductless system is that the conditioning units don’t require the expansive ductwork used in traditional central air configurations.
The mini-split is installed on the wall in the room of your choice, and, in some cases, multiple head units are dispersed throughout the home for increased comfort and efficiency.
Speaking of efficiency, ductless mini-split systems are up to 30% more efficient than central or window units, meaning they cool (or heat) your home faster and keep it that way.
Other benefits include:
The ability to cool or heat specific areas of your home at specific/variable times allows you to control costs and temperature. The savings can be substantial, and many homeowners are pleasantly surprised to see how much their utility bills drop once they’re no longer cooling an entire building all day.
Ductless mini-split systems are extremely quiet. They’re much quieter than central or window AC system options, which is imperative to some consumers who have had trouble getting to sleep listening to the rattles, hums, and rumbles of other AC products on the market.
A ductless system takes up a minimal amount of space, and since it’s installed on the wall, there’s nothing to trip over or brace in a window. It’s out of the way and, as mentioned, super quiet.
Ductless mini-split units can be used to cool and heat areas that are difficult to reach – such as certain spaces in older homes, offices, hospitals, hotels, and schools.
Better Air Quality & Smaller Footprint
Ductless mini-split systems help you and the environment breathe easier thanks to efficient filters that remove larger allergens and particles. These filters can also be cleaned and used repeatedly, generating less waste.
Sure, the price on the tag of a window AC unit is probably less on the surface, but consider that they’re far less dynamic (they can’t heat), and they’re easy to push in, granting access to trespassers.
Like any of our products at Suburban HVAC – the team is as important as the solution you choose. Ductless mini-split systems come in many different sizes relative to how they service an area, so you want a system that best fits the space you’re looking to condition.
Some contractors will sell you the biggest one they have, right out of the box. We take greater comfort in maximizing our customers’ comfort, so we want to outfit you with exactly what you need, keeping the environment and your wallet a little greener.
