When it comes to air conditioners, you have a wide variety of options. But even across all of your different AC brands and types of air conditioners, they all work very similarly. One type of AC, a ductless mini split system, stands out from the rest.
Ductless air conditioning in Aztec, NM, offers unique benefits that set it apart from all the other air conditioners on the market. You can keep reading to learn more about why you might want to invest in a ductless air conditioner instead of a more traditional central forced air system.
1. Energy Savings
When you buy a more traditional forced air system, you can get highly rated air conditioners that boast excellent energy efficiency. But when it comes down to it, you are still losing some cooled air through the ductwork. All of the cool air that your air conditioner produces will not reach the walls of your home. Some of it will stay in the ductwork, and some of it will escape through tiny holes and breaks in the seals as your air conditioner ages. This isn’t always a problem with newer air conditioners, but the older your AC and ductwork are, the bigger the problem is.
When you invest in a ductless AC, 100% of the cold air that your unit produces reaches the room. This is because there is no ductwork involved. Cool air blows directly into your room without needing to be channeled through anything else. Because of this, you stand to save up to 50% on your monthly energy bills. The savings can add up very quickly over the life of your mini split system.
2. Temperature Control
When you have a forced air system, you can choose one temperature setting for your entire home. A ductless mini split system is the only type of air conditioner that allows you to use different settings for each zone or room of your house. As long as you keep doors closed and individual rooms well insulated, you can easily set temperatures so that some rooms are cooler and others are warmer all at the same time. This is a very unique feature that other air conditioners cannot accommodate.
When we install a forced air system, we do our best to create a ductwork layout that distributes air evenly through your home. We may even include extra air vents in larger rooms while having fewer air vents and smaller rooms. But that is nothing compared to the customization that is possible with a ductless mini split system.
You essentially have a complete air conditioner in every room or zone of your house. Each unit can be uniquely designed for that specific space, elevating the customization opportunities. If you add on to your house, you don’t have to overhaul your entire air conditioner. Simply install a new mini split unit in the new addition and connect it to your existing mini split system.
