Ductless mini-splits continue to increase in popularity and are ideal for installing in homes with room additions or small apartments. Installing this type of system is an investment, which makes it necessary to understand the benefits it offers. Here are a few of the top benefits of ductless mini-splits for homes in Upper St. Clair, PA.
1. Increases Comfort
Ductless mini-splits are easier to install than standard air conditioners and are smaller, which means they don’t take up as much space. Many models come with an average of four indoor air handling units for four different rooms or zones. A thermostat is available for each section to ensure that residents can choose how cool or warm they want the temperature to be in that room.
2. Avoids Energy Loss
Standard air conditioners have a lot of ducts, which results in energy loss because of leaks developing in and around the ducts and cooled air seeping out. The lack of ducts on mini-splits prevents energy loss from occurring, especially in places like the attic. These systems also offer more flexibility with how you can install them to avoid having to tear down walls.
2. Indoor Air Quality Improves
When you need to install a ductless mini-split system, turn to our experienced technicians. A ductless mini-split system can result in better air quality because dirt and grime won’t settle in any of the parts, seeing as ducts aren’t present.
You can breathe easier and reduce the risk of respiratory issues. The lack of ducts also prevents leaks where allergens and dust can escape, which means keeping the air cleaner.
Ductless systems can improve your air quality and help you to save more on your electric bill each month.
