A ductless mini-split system is a type of heat pump that works without needing ducts that are essential for central heat and air. There are many reasons to consider this type of unit. Here’s what you need to know.
They’re Energy Efficient
Because a heat pump doesn’t burn fuel to heat and cool your home, it uses significantly less energy than traditional heating and cooling. By transferring the heat, it uses up to 60% less energy than central heating and cooling. This can save you a bundle on your monthly utility bills.
More Consistent Temperatures
Without ducts for the air to flow through as it circulates through your home, there is less energy loss than with other HVAC systems. Less air loss means the temperatures stay consistent, and your home remains comfortable.
Use for Zoning
With individual units in the different rooms and areas of your home, you can use a split system for zoning. Zoning means you can adjust the temperature for each unit to fit the needs of the area it supports.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
When air blows through a ducted system, it picks up some of the dust, mold, and other pollutants that can gather in those ducts. With a ductless system, you don’t have to worry about that. You’ll have a more efficient unit and cleaner air in your home.
If you’re thinking about new HVAC equipment, whether an upgrade, a new system for a new home, an add-on for a renovation, or even supplementing your existing unit, don’t overlook a ductless mini-split system. The team at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling can give you all of the information you need.
