A ductless mini-split system is a great choice for a single-family home. It consists of indoor and outdoor units and provides a host of benefits for your home. Here are five reasons to install a ductless system in your Midland, TX, home:
Better Indoor Air Quality
With a ductless system, you won’t worry about calling a service technician for duct cleaning. The ducts of a traditional HVAC system allow for allergens and other particulates to build up and impact your indoor air quality. Since a mini-split doesn’t have ducts, it greatly improves your air quality with multiple filters.
Easy HVAC Zoning
A ductless mini-split allows for up to four separate heating and cooling zones in your home. They each have separate thermostats, which means you can choose not to cool a room you don’t use or keep one room cooler than the others.
It takes several days up to a few weeks to install ductwork for a traditional HVAC system. However, since a ductless AC system only requires a 3-inch hole for a conduit, a service technician can install one in far less time. As a result, you can enjoy comfort within hours.
Higher Energy Efficiency
A traditional ducted HVAC system is prone to leaky ductwork. As a result, unless you have your ducts sealed, your system can lose up to 30% of the energy it consumes. Since a ductless mini-split has no ductwork, you don’t lose that energy, which means you can enjoy greater energy efficiency.
Reduced Energy Bills
The best thing about better energy efficiency is that you use less energy to cool your home, resulting in lower energy bills. Now’s the time to take action to reduce your energy consumption and improve your indoor air quality.
