Why are ductless mini-splits rising in popularity with homeowners? The reasons are endless! For starters, ductless systems provide many advantages over the traditional “forced-air”, central AC system that uses ductwork. With a ductless AC system, you can create fully customized temperate “zones” throughout your home!
What does that mean? Well, let’s say Grandma wants her room at 75°, but the kids want the living room at 69°. No more fighting! Grandma can set her zone to the temperature of her choice, and the kids can enjoy the same convenience. There are other applications here, like being able to keep the certain areas of your home cooler while you’re in them, and others slightly higher when you aren’t – saving you from having to spend the energy cost to cool the whole home just to be comfortable in one room. It doesn’t get better than that!
Additionally, Mini Split AC units use variable-speed compressors. This fancy technology allows the ductless system to continually adjust to keep the house at a consistent temperature. Instead of having to constantly switch on and off like a traditional air conditioner, these systems can operate up to 30% more efficiently than a window AC unit.
