7 Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split System

April 26th, 2024


Are you looking for a way to cool your new addition, converted garage, or living space?

There’s a chance you’ve heard of mini-splits, and for good reason!

Ductless mini splits, sometimes referred to as heat pumps, are becoming increasingly popular in home climate control because of their energy efficiency, temperature control, flexibility, and more.

Let’s dive into what makes mini-splits a reliable choice for adding high-quality comfort to your home:

7 Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split System

  1. Flexible zoning. Depending on the mini-split AC system, you can have up to 8 separate zones connected to one outside unit. With more flexibility in zoning, you have more control over individual thermostats for heating and cooling each room, including turning zones on and off as desired.

  2. Easy installation. Mini-split installation is easy and less invasive. In most cases, the only drilling necessary is a small hole in the wall to connect the indoor and outdoor units.

  3. Energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness. According to the Department of Energy, “Duct losses account for more than 30% of energy consumption”. Because mini-splits are ductless, there are no ducts to potentially leak air! With less energy consumption and higher energy efficiency, mini-splits are a cost-effective option for heating and cooling your home.

  4. Improved indoor air quality. Mini-split systems have built-in air filters that reduce exposure to indoor air pollutants such as dirt, dust, pet dander, and contaminants, improving air quality and the comfort of your home.

  5. More layout options. From ceiling to floor configurations, you have more placement options for your indoor air units based on the layout you prefer.

  6. Noise reduction. Mini-splits are designed to be ultra-quiet, so you experience minimal noise from your HVAC system.

  7. Suitable for additions and renovations. With easy installation, flexible zoning, and placement options, mini-splits are ideal for new additions like converted garages or sunrooms.

A mini-split system is a cost-effective, energy-efficient, and versatile option capable of cooling and heating a home on those in-between days, when it’s too cool to be comfortable, but you’re not ready to turn on your main oil or propane heating system.
