Ductless Mini-Split System | Air Conditioning Installation
If your home already has a duct system installed, a ductless mini-split system may not be the optimal HVAC system for your home. However, those who have a new addition, are planning to build a new home or live in a small apartment or an older home that lacks ducts, the ductless mini-split system may provide the heating and air conditioning that you need and want for year round comfort and efficiency. Cypress Heating and Air Conditioning’s professionals can provide the heating and air conditioning installation of a mini-split system for you.
A ductless mini-split system is a heat pump system. It has the same heat pump benefits of energy efficiency, reliability and comfort. Mini-splits contain two main components, the indoor air handling unit and the outdoor condensing unit.
A ductless air conditioning system is more energy efficient than a central system. According to the EPA, you can save approximately 30% on energy costs by installing an Energy Star certified ductless system. The mini-split is an energy efficient system, partially due to the fact that there are no ducts to cool down or heat up with the resulting energy loss through ducts. The ductless mini-split heat pump is more energy efficient than conventional heat pumps, one reason for their growing popularity in heating and air conditioning installation.
Energy Star Rated
Energy Star ductless mini-split heat pumps are available. Rebates are determined by the federal, state and local governments and availability varies from year to year. The purchase of an Energy Star qualified model will save you money by reducing your energy usage. When rebates are available, you can save even more money on your investment in energy efficient heating and air conditioning installation for your home.
Easy to Operate
The mini-split system can provide custom temperature control for each room containing an air handler. You don’t have to heat or cool unused rooms, and this will be reflected in significant savings on energy costs. A remote control enables you to adjust the temperature.
Indoor Air Quality
The ductwork in forced air systems can be a source of indoor air pollution by dispersing contaminants throughout the home. The interior components of a ductless mini-split systems on the other hand, uses advanced filtration to purify the air leaving the air handling unit in each zone. Some models can claim up to 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and other pollutants can be eliminated from the air moving through the unit providing improved air quality.
To install a traditional forced air system in a new construction, older homes, or other locations lacking heating and cooling, requires a duct system installation with holes to cut in walls, floors or ceilings. A mini-split system only requires a three-inch hole in an exterior wall to connect the indoor and outdoor components. The mini-split requires less materials and labor for heating and air conditioning installation, reducing installation cost.
Mini-splits require minimal maintenance, only requiring a filter change, and periodic maintenance from your heating and air conditioning technician to maintain performance and provide an extended service life.
The compact size of a ductless system makes them ideal for small spaces or individual rooms. A variety of interior design options are possible. The indoor air handlers are sleek and trim, and can be installed on the wall or in the ceiling.
Ductless systems operate quieter than other options. An important factor when HVAC must be located near bedrooms, and one appreciated by your neighbors.
If you have rooms that tend to be colder or hotter than other rooms, a ductless system can provide the solution for a consistent temperature. When using a ductless system for zoned heating and cooling, you have control over the temperature of each zone. This feature can result in money saved on the cost of energy.
Proper installation is essential for system efficiency and performance, and this isn’t only for ductless mini-splits but applicable for all heating and air conditioning installation. Use a qualified HVAC contractor to provide installation in order to avoid the problems associated with an improperly sized or poorly installed system.
With accurate sizing and installation, ductless mini-split heat pumps can provide greater comfort, cleaner air, enhanced efficiency, the intended performance and a quieter home environment.
