Every day, more homeowners switch to split-system HVAC setups, also known as ductless mini-splits. These systems are particularly popular with people who care about the environment. Learn more about their unique benefits below.
What Are Split-System HVACs?
A central air HVAC system distributes cooled or heated air through a series of ducts. A ductless mini-split system, on the other hand, consists of a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. You can also add a heat pump for the cooler months.
The indoor units can be installed in a variety of areas throughout your home, including ceilings and walls. You can use a remote to control units in hard-to-reach places.
During the warmer months, the outdoor unit sends refrigerant through lines that connect to the indoor units. During the colder months, a heat pump transfers heat from outside to the indoor units.
How Are They Eco-Friendly?
In a central air system, cooled or heated air can leak out of the ducts as it travels through your home. These leaks force the system to use more energy to keep your home comfortable.
A ductless system eliminates this problem, as each indoor unit directly delivers the cooled or heated air to each area of your home. It also saves energy by letting you choose specific rooms to cool or heat, so nothing is wasted on unoccupied rooms.
Because the system is so energy-efficient, it tends to last much longer than central air. This longevity allows you to reduce your waste output, which further helps the environment.
