Ductless HVAC, also known as a mini-split system, is a great choice for residential heating and cooling. You may have heard about this type of HVAC system and wish to learn more before installing one in your Florence, KY, home. Here are five benefits of ductless mini-splits to consider.
1. Convenient Additional HVAC Coverage
Ductless mini-split systems can address multiple situations where you need more air conditioning and heating in your home:
- Existing rooms just don’t seem to get cool enough in the summer or warm enough in the winter
- You’ve added to your home and your current HVAC system isn’t large enough to cool or heat it
- Converted garages, attics or basements are perfect for a ductless mini-split
2. Better Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality probably has you concerned, especially with the ductwork that typical HVAC systems have. HVAC ductwork requires regular professional cleaning to remove dust, pollen and other debris that impact your health and the efficiency of your HVAC system. With a ductless mini-split, there’s no ductwork that requires maintenance.
3. Energy Efficiency
Did you know that HVAC ductwork typically loses 30% of the air that flows through it? That’s a lot of extra energy consumption that you can avoid by switching to ductless mini-splits. According to EnergyStar, a ductless mini-split heat pump uses 60% less energy than electricity-based heating systems.
4. Ease of Installation
Adding a ductless mini-split system is far easier than installing an HVAC system with ductwork. With a mini-split system, you don’t have to repair walls or the ceiling after dealing with the lengthy, disruptive installation time.
5. Saving Money Every Month
Since ductless mini-splits are energy efficient, you save each month on your utility bill. A mini-split system operates on less power and delivers the air directly into a room, so you don’t lose any of it.
