You’ve probably heard the phrase, "good things come in small packages." Are we right? Well, when it comes to the super-efficient ductless mini-split, this saying couldn’t be more accurate. In fact, for homeowners who don’t have traditional ductwork in their home, a ductless heating or cooling system can be a real solution to all their problems. Curious? Read on to learn more!
First things first. Let’s explain these amazing little systems and how they work. Ductless mini-splits are a popular way of both cooling—and heating—your home when you lack ductwork. They consist of two parts, an outdoor compressor, and an indoor air handler. The indoor handler is what you see inside and is typically mounted on the wall or ceiling. Their big advantage is that they can be independently placed in only the rooms you want to heat or cool, so you have total control over the temperature in different zones of your house. How cool is that?
Additional benefits of a ductless system include:
Homeowners who are not familiar with ductless systems, often have many questions. The biggest one being: Is a ductless system right for my home? Great question!
When customers call us with inquiries about the ductless mini-split, we often ask them a series of questions. For instance, do you have an older home where you only use a few rooms? Or do you work out of garage office or have a workshop tucked away in your basement? If so, then you may want to only heat or cool the rooms you use consistently, so you’re not wasting money and energy.
If this sounds about right, then the ductless system is your answer. You can easily conquer temperature challenges with the installation of a highly efficient ductless mini-split in the rooms you choose.
Even better, there are a variety of ductless systems, too. From ductless heat pumps to simple ductless air conditioners, you’re in charge of the system you need and the home comfort you choose.
