What are 3 Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split System?
When you’re a homeowner without a central air conditioner and are looking to beat the summer heat, you’ll do just about anything to get the job done. From turning on a series of fans to keeping a cold compress on your head, sometimes, it can feel like a struggle to stay comfortable.
Luckily, there is a great new way to turn your “sauna” into a walk-in-freezer — introducing the ductless mini-split system! Unlike a traditional central cooling system, this compact unit is quick to install and can perform a series of wonders — but how so?
1. No Major Renovations Required
Whether you live in an old, vintage home or one that cannot support ductwork, you may not be an ideal candidate for a standard central cooling system — but you will qualify for a ductless mini-split system!
Without the need for ductwork to be installed, this system requires no major renovations to function in your home; it only relies on an evaporator (indoor unit) and a condenser (outdoor unit) to get the job done. The best part? Typically, you can run up to four evaporators on one condenser — how convenient is that!
2. Help Cut Energy Loss
When you have a central cooling system installed in your home, there’s a chance that the unit could be prone to energy loss (i.e., if there’s an air leak in the ductwork). And when this happens, it can account for up to 30% of energy usage — which adds up during those blazing hot days in the summer.
Since there’s no need for ductwork with a ductless unit, there will be no chance of energy loss happening when you’re using this system — a win-win situation for any homeowner looking to stay cool while reaping the benefits of cutting back on energy costs!
3. Quiet When Running
If you’ve relied on the cooling power of a window unit air conditioner for many years, you know that the AC will make its presence known at all hours of the day. However, if you’re looking for something a tad quieter, we recommend a ductless mini-split system. When in use, it will barely make a peep — giving you a nice, quiet environment to relax and unwind in after spending a long day in the sun!
