While ducted systems are currently the mainstream choice for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, they aren’t the only option. Ductless mini split systems also provide an excellent way to control the temperature of your space while increasing ventilation. Mini split systems refer to heating and cooling systems that can control the temperature of an individual room or space. It doesn’t need to connect to a central system and use ducts to control the temperature of an entire home.
Although they don’t utilize ducts, mini split systems work similarly to most temperature control systems. They compress and expand refrigerant to pull heat and moisture from the air. Then, they either dump the cool air inside or outside of the home depending on the desired temperature. However, their lack of ducts eliminates many of the disadvantages associated with ducted systems. To learn more about the benefits that ductless systems have to offer, consider these compelling reasons to switch to a mini split system.
Easy and affordable installation
The process of installing a mini split system is far easier and faster than the process of installing a traditional, ducted system. Rather than taking several weeks, professionals can install mini splits in as little as a single day. This easy installation is because mini split installation is far less invasive, as installers don’t need to weave ducts throughout a home’s walls and ceilings. All mini split system installation requires is a small three-inch hole in the wall. As such, they are far less expensive to install than traditional systems. So, you’ll finally be able to afford to control the temperature in rooms that weren’t initially in your home’s ductwork.
Determining the layout of a ducted temperature control system is often very limiting. The ductwork determines where vents release air, and you can only have a single cabinmate for your system. When utilizing a mini split system, however, a professional can install it in a wide range of customized configurations to suit your heating and cooling needs. You can also invest in floor-mounted, ceiling-mounted, or wall-mounted mini splits for optimal placement.
Takes up less space
Unlike most temperature control systems, mini split systems are small and unobtrusive. As such, they don’t detract from the overall appearance of your home in the way that their bulky counterparts often do. The small size of mini split systems is especially beneficial for areas with limited space and every square inch counts.
Saves money on your energy bill
Mini split systems allow you to independently control the temperature of specific spaces, so heating and cooling efforts are more efficient. As such, the system doesn’t have to pull or push air throughout ducts to get to different areas of your home. Instead, the temperature-controlled air goes directly into the room it is heating or cooling, which requires far less energy. Because the system expends less energy, you’ll save money on your energy bill every month. As such, the installation of the system pays for itself over time.
Better for the environment
The fact that mini splits typically use far less energy than traditional HVAC systems doesn’t just help reduce your energy bill, it also benefits the environment. Since you utilize less energy, you can decrease your carbon footprint without having to suffer through uncomfortably hot or cold living conditions. In addition, mini split systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines and use a refrigerant called R410A. Unlike the coolants used by many traditional temperature control systems, it doesn’t contribute to ozone depletion.
Many people who live in or have spent time in a home that utilizes a ducted HVAC system are familiar with the noise pollution they emit. Pushing and pulling air throughout a large system of ducts to heat your entire home is often very loud. The noise of the powerful system kicking on and off causes disturbances and the sounds of air whistling through the ducts can be particularly irritating. Fortunately, there is a solution to such annoyances. Mini split systems help cut back on noise pollution in your home as they release air directly into the room it is heating or cooling. As such, they are much quieter than traditional HVAC systems. So quiet, in fact, that you may forget they are even there.
Increased air quality
Many people spend the majority of their days indoors. If you fall under the homebody category, it is important to have good air quality in your home. Unfortunately, air pollutants such as cleaning products, dust, pollen, mold, and pet dander can reduce air quality. Poor air quality can lead to several health issues, such as aggravated cardiovascular and respiratory illness as well as nose, eye, and throat irritation. A great way to improve indoor air quality and reduce your risk of developing harmful side effects is to properly ventilate your home using a mini split system. Unlike central HVAC systems, mini split systems have nowhere for such irritants to hide. There is no way for irritants to accumulate in the ductwork and spread throughout your home.
Custom temperature control
Depending on their location in your home, some rooms are just naturally colder or hotter than others. For example, maybe your kitchen is always way too warm, but your bedroom is freezing. Or maybe you like it to be cooler while you sleep but others in your home like it to be toasty warm. If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of an unevenly heated home, mini split systems are the solution you’ve been searching for. Mini split systems allow you to independently control the temperature in individual rooms so that everyone can be as comfortable as possible.
