A ductless mini-split system is an air conditioner, unlike any other system, because it does not require any ducts or added ductwork. If you have recently added on a room to your house, which does not yet have ducts, we recommend going with a ductless mini-split instead of adding on ductwork.
Here are four reasons to go ductless:
1. Ducts Can Waste Energy
Sometimes referred to as split systems, multi-split systems or split-ductless systems, ductless cooling offers home and business owners a cost-effective way to replace inefficient window units. Ductless systems operate on less power and they are smaller than traditional forced-air systems. Because the temperature-controlled air is delivered directly into a room there is no loss in efficiency.
2. They Improve Indoor Air Quality
Often, the quality of indoor air can be lower than the quality of outdoor air. Ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the air.
3. Duct Installation Is A Hassle
The fact is that duct installation is not a possibility for many homeowners. The construction of the house (or the historic nature of the building) can sometimes make duct installation difficult. Installing a ductless mini split involves installing an outdoor unit and indoor air handler(s).
4. Control Each Zone Individually
In order to cool an entire home, you need multiple air handlers throughout the house; and you can control each air handler individually since each device comes with its own thermostat. This allows each person in the house to be comfortable in whichever room they occupy. The air handler also allows the user to shut off the air in any unoccupied room and this will help you save on cooling costs.
Before temperatures start to rise outside, consider taking steps to keep all the rooms of your home or office building cooler. Contact Reese Services today to install new ductless mini split systems.
