If you live in a home without any air conditioning and heating ducts, you’ve probably found some other way to cool and heat the home. But if you primarily rely on window AC units and space heaters, you are wasting energy and making things difficult.
Space heaters are often unsafe and require a lot of energy. Window AC units are noisy, and they can cost a lot to run, especially if you use them throughout the house. Plus, they do not tend to last very long. For homeowners relying on these methods for home comfort, we typically recommend a reliable alternative: the ductless mini split.
What Ductless Looks Like
The setup of a ductless mini split is much like the setup of a conventional central air conditioner or heat pump, with the main difference inside of the house. You will need an outside unit that is installed next to the home. But the inside unit consists of one or more blower units on the wall rather than a central blower and evaporator unit. These units mount high up or suspend from the ceiling and blow air directly into your home.
How It Makes Home Comfort Easier
With a ductless mini split, the central thermostat on your wall is programmable and easy to understand. You have whole-house comfort at your fingertips, and you can also control the separate indoor unit with separate thermostats around the home.
You don’t have to worry so much about your system breaking down. Since ductless mini splits are sized just right for your home, they last well over a decade with proper maintenance. And the process used for heating and cooling is safe and effective.
How You Save
The energy reduction throughout your household may surprise you after you have a ductless mini split installed in your home. Energy efficiency requirements are the same as those required of conventional central heat pumps, which means your bills can drop whether or not you choose the highest efficiency model. And heat pumps are some of the most efficient heating systems out there, since they only move heat around rather than generating heat.
