A ductless HVAC system, also called a mini-split, has one or more indoor units that connect to an outdoor unit via a small conduit for refrigerant. There are several reasons you might consider installing a ductless system in your Henderson, Nevada, home.
They Offer Energy Savings
Ductless systems are more efficient than conventional HVAC systems because they don’t have to push conditioned air through expansive ductwork. Also, you won’t have to worry about leaks, gaps or blockages in your ducts that could waste energy.
Most ductless heaters and air conditioners pay for themselves over time through energy savings. They can even increase the value of your home.
They Enhance Comfort
By using multiple indoor air handlers, ductless systems let you maintain different temperature settings in different zones of your home. This lets everyone in your home choose a temperature that’s most comfortable for their bedrooms or the rooms in which they spend the most time.
This greater control eliminates temperature arguments as well as heating or cooling unoccupied rooms. Because contaminants can’t spread through ducts, you’ll also enjoy better indoor air quality and avoid bad smells migrating from room to room.
They Are Easy to Maintain
Since there’s no need to design and install a duct system, installing a ductless HVAC system is faster and less costly than a conventional system. The indoor units hang on walls or ceilings without taking up valuable closet space. They’re available in many colors, sizes and styles.
If you already have ductwork, your installer will seal your air registers to keep pests or contaminants from getting into the unused space. You can even remove your ducts during a home renovation for higher ceilings.
