If are taking the steps to get a new heating and cooling system, you likely have a lot of questions. Is there a way to get around installing additional ductwork? What if I want to incorporate zoning to my home? Can I make my system more flexible? If you’re wondering about any of these questions, a mini-split system may be the ideal product for your home comfort needs.
Mini-splits can deliver more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t require ductwork, they are generally easier to install. All you’ll need is an interior unit on an exterior wall and an outdoor condensing unit. For added flexibility, one outdoor unit can support up to five indoor units, depending upon the specific model. That means you can create different comfort zones throughout the house. Mini-splits are a wonderful solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while giving you the chance to create a heating and cooling system customized to your home.
Mini-splits also offer benefits for your home’s energy efficiency and security. According to Energy.gov, more than 30 percent of the energy you use heating and cooling your home comes from the temperature lost through your ducts. Because mini-split systems don’t utilize ducts, less energy is wasted during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can also positively affect your energy costs. With enhanced control over the temperature in your space, you won’t spend extra money heating or cooling areas that aren’t used. Mini-splits can also help shelter your home. Traditional wall and window units can leave your home more prone to break-ins or intruders. Mini-splits only require a three-inch hole through your wall to start making your home comfortable.
Several of the more common reasons that people consider mini-split systems is if there is a room that is habitually warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the house, or there are rooms that are normally unoccupied.
