While there are many different types of air conditioning systems available today, you may be most familiar with the traditional two-part home air conditioners that blow cool air through the ducts in a home. However, if you have an older home that was built without ductwork, or if you’re adding a room onto your home, a ducted system may be difficult or impossible to install. Ductless cooling systems, often known as ductless mini splits, can cool or heat your entire home efficiently without the hassle of ductwork installation. If you’re looking for a high-performance ductless cooling solution, read on to learn about the many advantages of ductless mini splits.
Efficient Whole-House Cooling
Many homeowners without any ductwork may choose to install small room or window air conditioners throughout the house. But these are often too small to cool an entire room, and the noise may be unbearable for some homeowners. Window air conditioners are also inefficient, while ductless air conditioners may have a much higher SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), a measurement of a unit’s energy consumption.
Another benefit of ductless cooling is zone control. Zone control allows you to choose to adjust the temperature in a room or zone differently from other areas of the house. Because ductless cooling involves the installation of multiple indoor air handlers controlled by separate thermostats, your family members may choose to set the temperature to their own preferences in their own rooms.
Zone control also offers you the opportunity to save money on your energy bills. For example, if no one uses the upstairs rooms in the daytime, you can choose to raise the temperature or shut off the air upstairs only. The absence of ducts is another way you can save energy with ductless cooling. Often, cool air leaks from the ductwork of central air conditioning systems, costing homeowners extra to cool an unused space such as an attic or crawlspace. Ductless cooling eliminates the energy loss associated with ducts.
