Benefits of Ductless Mini Split Heating Systems


Central air conditioning is a great option for a lot of homes and use cases, but it’s not for everyone. More often than ever, homeowners are looking to ductless mini split heating systems. We can help find you a DC mini split that does the trick.

Before you jump in with both feet, it’s important to know what you stand to gain if you’re making the switch from central AC. Let’s discuss the benefits you enjoy when you make the switch to ductless mini splits.

Complete Zone Control

You want your living room to cool off a bit, but you have no plans on going upstairs for the rest of the night. Why cool both? Why bother heating both at the same time?

That’s the entire point: with a ductless mini split, you don’t have to choose to heat or cool your entire home at once. Depending on how many mini splits you have hooked up, you can control one or more zones without impacting the entire house.

No Ductwork to Maintain

Ductwork can become a hassle to maintain throughout the lifespan of a traditional HVAC system. There’s duct cleaning to worry about, duct sealing, pests, and more issues that can pop up.

Not to mention that it’s expensive to maintain that ductwork. With a ductless mini split, you completely avoid a series of maintenance and repair bills that other people are stuck paying for with their older, inefficient systems.

You still have to maintain your mini split, but thankfully, a good amount of that maintenance can be done by you. It’s not like you can just tend to your own ductwork in traditional HVAC units.

Better Energy Efficiency

A central AC or heating system does a lot of work, and sometimes that work heats and cools rooms that you’re not even spending time in. That’s money down the drain.

Because you choose which rooms receive heating and cooling, there’s no waste. As long as humidity isn’t a concern in those rooms that aren’t receiving round-the-clock air conditioning, you’re just saving money by being selective.

Beyond that, mini splits also achieve a higher SEER rating, which defines their energy efficiency. You just have a more efficient system from top to bottom.

Much Easier to Maintain on Your Own (Mostly)

You can’t substitute professional maintenance when it comes to your ductless mini split, but you can handle a fair amount of tasks on your own in between maintenance calls.

Cleaning out the interior and switching out your air filters can both be achieved by the homeowner. You will still need a professional to help as a point of inspection, part replacement, and additional repairs.
