Why use a Ductless mini split you ask?
Benefits of a Ductless MIni Split System
The benefit of mini splits are their small size and flexibility for heating and cooling individual rooms while being more energy efficient. Many models can have as many as four indoor air handling units connected to one outdoor unit. The number depends on how much heating or cooling is required for the building or each zone. Each of the zones will have its own thermostat, so you only need to condition that space when it is being used, saving energy and money. I would want to save money for a nice vacation, wouldn’t you?
1.Increases Home Values
Increase the value of your home with a ductless heating and cooling system. Ductless solutions are growing in popularity and homes with updated and efficient cooling and heating solutions are easier to sell and increase the value more than homes with old systems or no systems at all.
2.Can Also Heat to Individual Rooms
3.Breathe Happier with a Mini-Split – They Improve Indoor Air Quality
The indoor air quality can be lower than the quality of outdoor air. With traditional HVAC systems, air ducts must be professionally cleaned on a regular basis (which AIR4U can do for you) and even after cleaning, dust and allergens are left behind. Ductless mini splits on the other hand, offer multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens, and other particulates in the air. My son has asthma, so out of experience I prefer ductless mini splits. Plus, mini split units have washable filter you can clean and replace regularly.
These things are amazing on noise!!! Regular A/C units can be so loud sometimes especially the older ones. I couldn’t get a good night’s rest at night. However, with this new mini split, it has been as quiet as a gentle breeze!!!
Because they are designed without ducts, these mini split systems do not experience the degrees of energy loss that the duct work used in traditional A/C systems. Energy losses due to duct work in more traditional air conditioning systems account for over 30 percent of energy consumption during use, particularly if the ducts are in a room or area that is not being cooled. Most mini split users find that they are conserving on energy usage by keeping their AC running consistently during the hot, humid days and nights of the summer months and turning the temperature up or down as needed.
6.Advantages Over Window Units
c.More energy efficient
d.Add heating capability
e. Improved home security – They only require small holes in the walls of your home for connecting the outside compressor/condenser to your indoor air handling units, mini split AC installations offer better home security than air conditioning units installed in your windows or walls. Wall AC units are especially easy to take off from outdoors, enabling an intruder to enter your home or offices quietly, most likely unnoticed. Now this I didn’t know and freaks me out!!
Experienced thieves and burglars who are slender have trained themselves to push in window units, which allows them to contort their bodies (OMG), and squeeze through small spaces to gain unauthorized entrance to a home or commercial facility to remove valuable personal or company property. Providing better home or office security is certainly one of the important benefits of a mini split system.
7.Interior Design Flexibility
With a mini split AC system installation, you will have more interior design options available for your selection. These A/C units can be suspended from the ceiling or hung on a wall which gives you more flexibility on how to design and use your interior space. New units also now come in different cases which can look traditional or more modern.
Since mini splits do not require air ducts, they are very cost effective to install especially if remodeling older homes where more heating and cooling is required and adding additional ductwork is cost prohibitive.
