Spring is the number one season for replacing air conditioning systems, since homeowners want to make sure their systems are ready for the hot months. If you’re in the market for a new air conditioning system this spring, you might want to consider installing a ductless system. Have a look at some of the ways you can benefit from having a ductless system installed in your home.
Ductless Mini Splits
A ductless mini split, as the name suggests, does not use ducts to distribute air throughout the house. Instead, it uses smaller air handlers that are all connected to an outdoor condenser unit. Up to four indoor air handlers can be connected to a single condenser unit. Each room that is to receive air conditioning has its own air handler installed in it. Each air handler has its own thermostat, allowing it to operate separately from the rest of the system. Since ductless systems are heat pumps, they have the ability to act as either heating or air conditioning systems.
Advantages of Using a Ductless Mini Split
A ductless mini split offers a lot of unique advantages over other, more traditional kinds of climate control systems. First and foremost, a ductless mini split is much more energy efficient than most air conditioners and heaters. Not having to rely on ducts prevents the ductless system from suffering from duct leaks. This may not seem like a big issue, but duct leaks are actually responsible for losses of up to 30% in the average central climate control system. Avoiding that issue goes a long way towards making your climate control more cost effective.
Ductless mini split systems also offer a much finer degree of control over your indoor climate than other systems. You can set the ideal temperature for each room in your home, rather than applying the same amount of output to the entire house and relying on one thermostat. This is an especially attractive advantage for people who live with others, since nobody likes to engage in “thermostat wars.” This also further increases the energy efficiency of the system, since each room has its own needs with regard to air conditioning. Central climate control systems often create hot and cold spots throughout the house, because they apply the same amount of output regardless of differences in insulation, sunlight exposure, etc. You don’t have to worry about that if you have a ductless system installed.
Finally, once winter comes around you’ll be glad to have a ductless system installed in your home. Ductless mini splits don’t need to burn fuel to generate heat, which makes them automatically more cost effective than most other home heating systems.
