Advantages of Installing a Ductless Mini Split System

The early fall is one of the best times to arrange for a new HVAC installation in your home, whether a heating or air conditioning system. Not only is there a pleasant break in the weather so you won’t have to worry about staying comfortable while the installation work is getting done, but experienced technicians like ours have an easier time finding a place on their schedules to do the job during this season.

Reasons to Consider a Ductless Mini Split System

carrier-ductless-mini-splitThere are many options available to you for a new comfort system. Ductless mini splits are one of the more popular choices today because they offer a number of special advantages for homes:

  • Heating and cooling: Most ductless mini splits are types of heat pumps, which means they provide both cooling and heating. A well-installed ductless system will offer a home powerful air conditioning during the summer heat and energy-efficient heating during the shorter winters.
  • Flexibility: Because ductless systems operate via wall-mounted air handlers that send conditioned air directly into the living spaces, they have no need for a complex ventilation system that runs through walls and attic areas. This makes them suited for many different types of homes and situations: new house construction, add-on rooms, and older houses without space for ducts.
  • Energy savings: Ductless mini splits can help reduce energy costs around the year. They operate using smaller motors than traditional ACs and heat pumps and don’t lose or gain any heat through ducts that can end up reducing their energy efficiency.
  • Zone control: Each of the air handlers of a ductless mini split system can be operated on its own, independent of the other units. This allows for zone heating and cooling, so that conditioned air is only sent to the rooms that have need of it. This is another way a ductless system can save you energy, and it also helps with a more even distribution of heating and cooling.
