A ductless mini-split HVAC system includes several indoor air handling units and an outdoor compressor or condenser. They’re connected by a small conduit, so you don’t need ductwork. The indoor air handlers heat or cool the air that’s in the different rooms or zones of your St. Louis, Missouri, home. As a result, you don’t have to use energy to move air through ducts. A ductless mini-split system can lower your utility bills, run quietly, and make you and your family more comfortable.
Ductless Systems Lower Utility Bills
Mini-split systems cost more than most conventional systems, but they pay for themselves over time through energy savings. You’ll never have to repair energy-wasting leaks in ductwork, and you can use zoning to avoid heating or cooling unoccupied rooms. Just use a separate thermostat for each indoor unit, and control them all with a central programmable thermostat.
Ductless Systems Operate Quietly
Leaks or debris in ductwork can cause whistling or banging sounds, and you might even hear squeaking or scurrying if pests have infested your ducts. After installing a mini-split system, a professional will either remove your ductwork or seal all your air registers. That way, you won’t have to worry about noisy leaks, debris or pests.
What’s more, mini-split systems are quieter because the indoor units don’t always work at the same time. Since they don’t use as much power, you can use a smaller and quieter outdoor unit as well.
Ductless Systems Improve Comfort
Ductwork can spread contaminants like dust, dirt and pet dander through your home, especially if you forget to change your air filter or have a leak. A ductless system will improve your indoor air quality, preventing allergy symptoms, headaches and other health problems like asthma.
