Why Install a Ductless Heating and Cooling System?

Advantages of a Ductless Mini Split System for Temperature-Controlled Air

Now is the time of year when people are concerned about their air conditioning. Summer is here, and the outside temperatures will not be going down any time soon. If a home has an older air conditioner nearing the end of its lifespan, then today is the day to consider new air conditioning installation in the form of ductless mini splits. Three of the most significant benefits of installing ductless mini splits are detailed in the following paragraphs.


Reason #1: Reduce Energy Bills


One of the biggest selling points for ductless mini splits is their energy efficiency. Energy bills typically go down significantly when ductless systems are installed. Several reasons for this are outlined below.

  • No Air Ducts: Air ducts can be a source of energy loss even if they work correctly and don’t have an air leak that causes even more energy loss. No such heating or cooling loss happens from these mini splits because there is no ductwork.
  • Temperature Zones: Mini-split systems connect to multiple indoor units. These units can be operated independently of each other so that temperatures can be adjusted to save energy in areas of the house that are used less frequently.

Reason #2: Ease of Installation


Another benefit of mini splits is the ease of installation because of the lack of ductwork. Besides being easier to install, they can also be quicker to install. This also means ductless systems can be used in older houses without ductwork and spaces too small to accommodate air ducts. A traditional HVAC cooling or heating installation would require duct installation, which can add to installation time.


Reason #3: Improved Indoor Air Quality and Personalized Comfort

Customizing temperatures in different parts of the home with ductless mini splits rather than setting one temperature for the whole house can improve comfort levels. Each room or zone can be controlled independently, allowing homeowners to adjust their personal comfort preferences as needed. In addition, by zoning and controlling temperatures in each space more precisely, energy bills can also be reduced.

In addition to comfort, ductless systems can also improve indoor air quality. Traditional central air HVAC systems use air ducts to move the air throughout the house, and these ducts can become dirty with pollutants like pollen, dust, mold, and other allergens. But with a ductless system, there are no air ducts, so fewer allergens or contaminants can get trapped. This means that the air quality and comfort are improved, and so is the health of those living in the home.
