While many homes in Indianapolis and beyond use traditional air conditioning and heating systems and are very happy with the results, there might be a better option for your home. Ductless mini split systems are capable of both heating and cooling your home without ductwork that is attached to traditional systems. While some homeowners elect to install a ductless air conditioning system to provide cooling only, ductless units can also provide heat during the winter if they are connected to a heat pump.
The professionals at Thiele Heating & Air Conditioning want to help keep your home safe and comfortable year-round. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of a ductless mini split system and whether it would be a good addition to your home.
Better Temperature Control
With the installation of a ductless heating and air conditioning system, you’ll no longer have arguments in your home surrounding the temperature on the thermostat. Instead, with a ductless mini split system, each room with an indoor air handling unit installed in it can be set to a different temperature. This allows everyone in your home to be comfortable by allowing them to set their own temperature settings in their rooms.
Increased Energy Efficiency
As great as a traditional HVAC system is, they often lose a significant amount of their airflow in the ductwork. This leads to higher energy consumption and bills as your system must stay on longer in order to meet the temperature set on the thermostat.
Ductless mini split systems don’t have any ductwork attached, allowing your home to be brought to temperature far more quickly and efficiently than traditional systems are often able to. You’ll immediately notice energy savings by installing a ductless system.
Minimal Maintenance Required
Traditional heating and cooling systems require frequent maintenance in order to keep both the system and the ductwork free of any minor issues. However, with ductless systems, just the system itself will occasionally need maintenance to ensure that the condenser coils are clean and the filters have been cleaned or replaced.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Traditional systems are no stranger to low air quality. Mold, dust, and other pollutants can often find their way into the ductwork, leading to poor air quality that can worsen allergy and asthma symptoms, among other issues.
Ductless systems completely resolve these issues by eliminating the ductwork that often causes poor air quality. As a result, your family will breathe healthier, cleaner air.
With indoor air handlers installed in different rooms throughout the home, it may initially seem like ductless mini splits can become very loud when many are operating at the same time. This isn’t true, as ductless systems are as quiet as a whisper when operating.
With traditional furnaces and central air conditioning systems, you might occasionally notice popping, banging, or rattling noises when your system is running. These noises are caused by ductwork that is expanding or contracting. Thanks to a lack of ductwork associated with ductless mini splits, these noises will also be completely eliminated.
