The fall is a good season to consider putting in a new HVAC system for a house. It’s a quieter time for heating and air conditioning professionals once the summer heat fades, and that makes it easier to arrange a convenient time for an installation or replacement. If you think that your current AC just went through its final summer, then you should think about having the system replaced now.
But you don’t have to put in a standard split system air conditioner. You may want to consider a different option: a ductless mini split AC.
How a ductless mini split can benefit you
- It may be a better fit for your home: If you’ve had to make do with window air conditioners for cooling because your home doesn’t have any space for ductwork, than a ductless mini split is a great choice. You can have multiple air handlers throughout the house, each of which connects to a single outdoor unit. That means you have the efficiency and convenience of central cooling, but without the requirements of space-consuming ductwork.
- It can save you money: Ductless mini splits have smaller motor parts than standard split system air conditioners, and therefore they use less energy to run. They also don’t gain heat through the duct walls, which improves energy efficiency.
- It offers zone control: With a ductless AC, you don’t have to cool down every room in your home when you turn on the air conditioner. Each air handler of a ductless mini split can run independently of the others. This is another way that you’ll save money, and it helps create even cooling around your home.
- It improves indoor air quality: Are there people in your home who suffer from allergies and asthma? If so, a ductless mini split can make life much easier for them. Without ducts that collect dust and other airborne contaminants, ductless ACs blow out cleaner air.
