Ductless mini-split air conditioners have an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air handlers. They’re connected by a small conduit for refrigerant instead of ductwork. They can lower your home’s utility bills and increase the value of your home in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Ductless mini-splits offer energy savings, require minimal maintenance, and provide excellent indoor air quality.
They Offer Amazing Energy Savings
With a ductless system, you won’t have to use power to push conditioned air through ductwork that leaks. If you have more than one indoor air handler, you can adjust the temperatures in different areas or zones separately. This zoning keeps you from having to cool or heat unoccupied rooms. It also lets family members choose the setting they prefer for their bedroom without making others uncomfortable.
They Are Easy to Install and Maintain
Installing a conventional air conditioner takes about a week. Conversely, a professional can install a ductless mini-split one or two days. If your home already has ductwork, you can close your air registers to prevent pests. You’ll never have to pay for duct cleaning, sealing or repairs.
You also won’t need space for ductwork in a new home, so you can have a higher ceiling. And since you can place indoor units on walls or ceilings, you won’t need space in a basement or closet for your air handler.
They Provide Excellent Indoor Air Quality
Every ductless indoor air handler has its own air filter, so pollutants like dust, dirt, pollen, or pet dander in one room can’t travel easily to other areas. You can also catch more particles before they spread. Contaminants often accumulate in ductwork, blocking air flow and reducing your indoor air quality.
