Many homeowners who are searching for a more energy efficient system for their dwellings are turning to something called the mini split as an alternative to traditional HVAC systems. There are many advantages to using a ductless mini split. One major one is that they don’t require ductwork, so heating and cooling are immediate. And also since the air is not going through channels to get to you, air quality is increased. But there are also other advantages that you might not know of.
A mini split doesn’t rely on the same ductwork that traditional systems do. Therefore, there is no way for the ductwork to become caked with dirt and debris, which is common with the older heating and cooling systems. When the ductwork is compromised, that forces the HVAC system to work harder, and it puts more wear and tear on the units. It also increases the amount of energy that your system uses to push air and your annual heating and cooling costs. Also, when your ductwork becomes dirty, it decreases air quality and can lead to allergens making everyone miserable.
Although each home and system will be different, estimates are that using a mini split will help to save you as much as 50% over what you are currently paying. And since some units come with tax incentives and rebates, the upfront cost to replace your old system is not as much as you would expect for the ultimate savings you will enjoy!
If you are considering whether to use a traditional HVAC system or to install a mini split, it is an excellent idea to do an overall audit to see which system is best for you.
