If you’re choosing heating and cooling equipment for your home, the two main options are a central air or a ductless mini-split system. While some like the seamless look of central models, mini-splits are designed to maximize comfort and save money. Here are a few of their financial benefits.
Why You Should Get a Ductless Mini-Split System
1. Efficient Technology
Mini-split systems use heat pump technology to control the air temperature in your home, so you won’t have to buy a separate furnace and air conditioner. Manipulating the pressure inside the coils allows the same unit to move heat into or out of the house—the refrigerant inside the coils gives off heat when compressed, then absorbs heat when decompressed.
2. Heating & Cooling Zones
A central air system heats or cools the entire home simultaneously, including vacant rooms. However, a ductless mini-split regulates one or two connected areas. Installing multiple units throughout the house will let you adjust the temperature only in the spaces you’re using, conserving energy and lowering your utility bills.
3. Zero Air Loss Through Ducts
A central air system relies on a network of ducts to distribute cold air. However, the air leaks from the ducts or loses some of its chill or heat as it travels, and you may run the unit longer to reach your desired temperature.
On the other hand, mini-split systems distribute conditioned air straight into the room. These models have better heating and cooling efficiency because they directly put the air where it’s needed, using less energy and lowering your bills further.
