These systems are great for those who want flexible solutions when it comes to heating and air conditioning. Traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning force cooled and heated air through ducts, many times not very efficiently. Ductless sytems deliver air directly into different zones. They basically require a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that only require mounting capabilities and electricity. They are a cost effective way to replace window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. They can be installed in existing homes, new construction, condominiums and apartments. They can even work alongside homes that currently use ducted forced-air systems.
They can also save you money. Utility costs have skyrocketed in recent years. Ductless systems operate on less power, and since the heater or conditioned air is delivered directly into a room, there is no loss in efficiency. They also allow the creation of zones in a home so that you can control when and how each room is heated or cooled. Homeowners may be eligible for tax credits or utility rebates when they install this type of system as well.
These systems can also improve air quality. With traditional forced-air ducted systems, there can be dust and allergens that build up, even when cleaned on a regular basis. Ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce these allergens including dust, bacteria, and pollen.
Lastly, they are quick and easy to install. Depending on the number of indoor and outdoor units required, they can be installed and running in as little as a day. Mini split systems run on small pipes that require around a 3" hole. That means homeowners do not have to worry about costly construction costs around walls and ceilings when adding ducting.
