The weather in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area can fluctuate drastically with the changing seasons, and even within the same day. With seesaw temperatures, it can be difficult to maintain a comfortable home. A ductless mini-split system allows you to have more control over comfort and even energy savings, no matter the season or weather patterns.
A ductless mini-split heating and cooling system includes one or more smaller units placed in various rooms throughout the home. These units don’t require ducts to move air; instead, they deliver targeted air conditioning for better control in each room. When you have hot or cold spots in your house, a ductless mini-split can make a big difference, since you can simply adjust the thermostat on a specific unit. By doing so, you avoid wasting energy air conditioning the whole house or unoccupied areas. This type of flexibility is especially appealing in large homes that are hard to heat and cool effectively.
Ductless mini-split systems are also more efficient than traditional HVAC systems. Since they don’t have ducts, the system won’t suffer the energy loss that occurs because of leaky ductwork. In fact, gaps or cracks in ducts can account for up to 30 percent of energy waste in a home. Another benefit is that you can use a mini-split system to supplement your existing HVAC system. You won’t have to worry about the expense and inconvenience of construction to extend the ductwork of a central air conditioning system. You can connect several indoor units to a single outdoor unit to deliver cool air to the rooms that need it most.
Lower Monthly Bills
Along with improved efficiency and a more comfortable atmosphere, a ductless mini-split system can help reduce your air conditioning bills. The targeted air conditioning and lack of ductwork result in savings that can help to offset the cost of ductless installations.
