If you want greater indoor comfort at a lower monthly price, a ductless mini-split heat pump will deliver. Whether you have newly added space to your home or an area that your current system isn’t keeping comfortable, this system keeps you cool during the hot Broussard summers and toasty warm during the chilly winters. Ductless HVAC doesn’t rely on ductwork, so forget cleaning, sealing or replacing your ducts. Here are five other reasons why a ductless system could be ideal for you:
Ductless mini-splits can be installed in one day, and the installation is quick and easy. Two small openings in the wall accommodate tubing that transports heated and cooled air. Indoor units are usually mounted on the walls or ceiling.
Indoor Comfort Without Energy Waste
Problematic ductwork can diminish indoor comfort and cause poor energy efficiency. Ducts can be plagued by leaks, cracks, poor sizing, debris, and contamination. Up to 30 percent of heated and cooled air is lost via flawed ductwork. With mini-split HVAC, air that would be lost is now used to heat and cool your home.
Customized Heating and Cooling
The outdoor unit of a ductless system can power multiple indoor units, if needed. Each indoor unit controls a different room or zone with its own thermostat. With home zoning, you can heat or cool only the rooms you use. That allows for great energy efficiency.
4. Fresher Indoor Air and Greater Indoor Comfort
Allergens, particulates, and microbes typically collect in ductwork. When your system cycles on, it blows contaminated air into your home. Ductless systems have multistage filtration capabilities that can remove up to 99.9 percent of pollutants from indoor air. Ductless technology also balances indoor humidity levels.
Advanced Inverter Technology
Advanced inverter technology means high-efficiency HVAC performance. The inverter continually monitors and adjusts fan speeds to ensure the greatest comfort at the lowest possible price.
