Save Energy and Money

As much as 30% of the energy used for heating and cooling is lost in your air ducts, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Since mini split heat pumps are part of a ductless heating and cooling system, less energy is lost. Not only does this improve the energy efficiency of your home, but it also helps reduce your heating and cooling expenses.

Free Up Floor Space

Ductless heat pumps take up less space than other types of heating systems because they can be mounted to walls. Not only does this free up valuable floor space, but it also gives you more freedom with your interior design. As time goes by, you won’t even notice your ductless mini split. In other words, a ductless heating and cooling system is able to control the temperature of a room or home addition without drawing attention to itself. Most mini split heat pump systems are so quiet that you don’t even realize they’re on.

Create Temperature Zones

Is there someone in your family who is always turning up or down the thermostat? A lot of family squabbles could be prevented by installing a ductless split system. Once ductless HVAC is installed, you and your family will be able to customize the temperature for each room in your house. If you already have a furnace, you may want to consider just installing ductless mini splits in bedrooms or a recent home addition.

Being able to create temperature zones in your home can also help you save money in the long run. For example, many people turn down the thermostats in their rooms for while they sleep. You may also not need to set as high a temperature for rooms in your home that are well insulated against the winter chill.

Heat and Cool Home Additions

Have you recently built an addition to your home? If so, you may want to consider the advantages of ductless heating and cooling. When a homeowner adds a new room to their home, it can be difficult or impossible to connect it to the existing heating and cooling system. Keep in mind that a mini split heat pump is able to both heat and cool your home year-round.
