Mini-split heat pumps are gaining popularity with Allison Park homeowners. They offer perks that other HVAC systems do not. Here are five sound reasons to give ductless technology a closer look:
1. Superior Energy Efficiency
With SEER ratings of up to 30.5, mini-splits keep utility bills low. Variable speed compressors continually adjust output to precisely fulfill your comfort needs. No energy is wasted. Total energy savings with a mini-split installation could be anywhere from 20 to 50 percent.
2. No More Ductwork Hassles
You won’t need ducts with a mini-split system. Here’s what happens when you kiss ductwork goodbye:
- You won’t lose up to 30 percent of your heated and cooled air through leaky ducts.
- You won’t be paying for ductwork inspections, duct cleaning or ductwork leak sealing.
- Your ducts will no longer be a haven for mold, dander, dust mites, pollen, bacteria and viruses.
3. Cleaner Indoor Air
Ductless AC has state-of-the-art air filtration capability. With longer and slower running times, mini-splits can remove more toxins from indoor air. Treated air travels straight from the outdoor unit to the indoor units. It doesn’t pass through the ducts, so it can’t absorb contaminants and spread them around your house.
4. Custom Comfort Control
Mini-splits have up to eight indoor units. Each indoor unit governs temperatures in a particular room or zone. You can customize conditions in each zone according to your preferences. You can stop wasting money on heating and cooling rooms you don’t use.
5. Eco-Friendly Home Heating
Ductless mini-splits heat your home using warmth extracted from outdoor air. It’s a free energy source. Your only cost is the electricity used to move heat in and out.
