An efficient ductless or mini-split heating and air conditioning system can lower your power bills and help you save money on installation and maintenance. It also keeps your Mobile, Alabama, home comfortable. Here's some more information on how a ductless system can help you save money and energy.
Ductless systems have an outdoor condenser or compressor and one or more indoor air-handling units, similar to central heating and air conditioning systems. A small conduit connects the indoor and outdoor units instead of ductwork.
A ductless system only takes a day or two to install, compared to over a week for a central air conditioning system with ductwork. Ducts use valuable space in closets, attics, and basements, and some have to be custom made. The indoor and outdoor units of a ductless HVAC system can be up to 50 feet apart.
Not Much Maintenance
With a ductless system, you won't have to worry about cleaning ductwork, sealing leaks, or other duct maintenance. There also won't be any noises or strange smells coming from ductwork, and your home will have better overall indoor air quality. Your system will last longer with fewer breakdowns, too, because the indoor units won't have to move air as far as if you were using a central system.
In addition, ductless HVAC systems are much more efficient since they can't lose energy through leaky ductwork. Ductless systems with more than one indoor air handler often use zoning to assign different temperatures for different zones or areas in your home. That way, you can avoid conditioning empty rooms and persons in other areas will be able to choose the temperatures that make them feel most comfortable, without affecting temperatures in other zones.
