Home and business owners are turning to ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems for greater control over comfort and energy savings. These systems are the perfect solution for applications where installing ductwork is not possible, due to space or even financial constraints.
What is a ductless mini-split?
Ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems are split systems which utilize no ductwork. An outdoor heat pump unit is connected to one or more individual air handling units, strategically placed throughout the home or building. Each air handler supplies the zone with heating or cooling, and can be independently controlled to adjust comfort in a single zone only without affecting conditions throughout the building.
Why go ductless?
Ductless mini-splits are quite versatile – they can be used in a number of applications, and offer distinct advantages. Ductless heating and cooling systems are often chosen to replace inefficient, aged systems, such as baseboard heating and window A/C units, especially when there is no existing ductwork. These systems are ideal for single family homes, multifamily housing, offices, and other applications which demand individualized temperature control.
Compared to forced air heating and cooling systems, ductless mini-splits consume less energy – this generates notable energy savings throughout the year. With the power to zone heating and cooling, energy use can further be controlled, cutting energy waste and lowering utility bills.
With a multi-zone ductless mini-split heating and cooling system, occupants can control temperatures in a single zone without affecting the rest of the home or building. In a household or workplace where everyone has differing temperature preferences, ductless heating and cooling can create comfort and peace for all. They’re great for homes and buildings where certain areas don’t require the same level of heating and cooling as others, such as unused workspaces and living rooms versus bedrooms.
The energy savings, accessibility, and superior comfort control make ductless mini-split HVAC systems a smart choice for many home and business owners. Working with a qualified HVAC contractor to install your new system will ensure you gain the maximum benefits from your new ductless HVAC system.
