Can Ductless Cooling Work for Your Home?
With the summer quickly approaching, many homeowners wonder if their cooling systems are up to par. The older the system, the more inefficient and difficult it is to keep the home comfortable – leading to increased energy costs. And while air conditioning installation can often help with many of these challenges, what if more flexibility is needed? For many homeowners, ductless cooling systems may be the perfect solution. In this post, HVAC contractors share three benefits of ductless mini split air conditioning systems that could help homeowners make the best choice for their homes.
1. They Cut Down on Energy Costs
While investing in any new AC unit will have an upfront cost, many don’t realize that outdated HVAC systems can cost homeowners even more over time in repair costs and rising energy bills. As such, one of the most significant benefits of a ductless mini-split system is its energy efficiency. Ductless mini splits provide considerable energy savings since they don’t require a lot of electricity to run. Not only do they work more efficiently thanks to modern technology, but they also have a fundamental advantage – they’re designed to work in limited spaces.
Unlike a conventional central air conditioner, responsible for cooling the entire home with air ducts (even the rooms where no one is), ductless mini-split systems are built on zones. They are installed in specific areas and run independently, helping homeowners reduce runtime without skimping comfort. Additionally, because no air ducts are running the expanse of the home, there is also no risk of air leaks or energy loss from the ductwork that causes more inefficiency and higher cooling costs.
2. They’re Easier to Install
Another benefit of ductless mini splits is that installation is easier than central AC. Installation is quick and easy, as installing or repairing existing ductwork isn’t necessary. The lack of air ducts makes ductless mini splits ideal for old homes without air ducts or homes with inadequate space for adding them.
The absence of air ducts also reduces some costs and mess associated with traditional AC systems, making this type of AC system convenient and efficient. These units offer an excellent solution for any home that needs efficient cooling without requiring large-scale renovations or duct installation.
3. They Provide Customized Comfort
As mentioned, ductless mini-split systems work in zones with several wall-mounted units in a home. This means homeowners have greater control over their home’s comfort. Every area can get a custom-tailored temperature because the indoor units run independently. Ductless mini-split systems are becoming increasingly popular in modern homes for their energy efficiency and convenience, but they can also provide better indoor air quality.
Each wall unit has an independent filter, removing impurities, allergens, and dust. Air ducts can also harbor allergens such as dust, dirt, and mold, which then get dispersed into the air when the central AC system is running. By eliminating these ducts, a ductless mini-split system helps ensure that a home’s air remains free of these contaminants.
