Planning HVAC updates for your home? You have many options for your heating and cooling needs, but there’s one choice not to overlook: a Daikin ductless mini split system!
Ductless equipment offers the comfort of a central HVAC system without the hassle and expense of ductwork installation or retrofits. But that’s just the beginning of their many benefits.
Below are three excellent reasons to look into a ductless mini split for your home.
Benefits of Ductless Mini Split Systems
1. Less Air Loss
HVAC systems that use ductwork to circulate air can lose 25% or more of your energy to ductwork leaks. While there are effective ways to seal up to 90% of leaks, like our Aeroseal services, installing a ductless mini split eliminates the risk of duct leaks. There can’t be any leakage if there aren’t any ducts, right?
2. Less Wasted Energy
Mini split systems use inverter-driven compressors. This means that when the unit is working to reach your desired comfort level, the mini split speeds up or slows down based on the energy it needs, rather than stopping and starting the whole system, as with a traditional HVAC unit. That helps waste less energy in your home, ultimately saving you money on utility bills over time.
3. Fewer Allergens
Ductwork can collect a lot of dust, debris, and other airborne pollutants that circulate throughout your home – especially if ducts are not properly maintained or professionally cleaned. This may exacerbate allergies and other respiratory problems. Because they do not circulate air with ducts, mini splits can help maintain healthier indoor air quality.
Ductless System Types
There are two kinds of ductless mini split heat pumps and air conditioners to choose from: single-zone and multi-zone.
Live in a small home or a separate garage apartment, or have a room that needs some extra air power? The single-zone ductless system is a great option for you. Both air conditioning and heating units are available that offer cost savings, a streamlined installation process without ductwork, and powerful production of hot or cool air to keep you comfortable.
Excellent for homes with several rooms, this option delivers the comfort of a central HVAC system with the energy-efficiency of a ductless system. Multi-zone ductless systems make it easy to connect just one outdoor unit to several indoor units, so your entire home gets the personalized comfort you’re looking for. Plus, the indoor units are available in a wide range of styles, from wall- and floor-mounted to concealed slim-duct and ceiling cassette options.
