When comparing ductless systems to traditional central HVAC systems, the benefits are seen in your monthly energy bill. Central HVACs with ducts can cause an energy waste of 30% or more.
About Mini-Split Systems
The rooms ideal for a ductless AC are not connected to the rest of the home in a shared system. For instance, if you have recently added on a bedroom, home office, or sunroom, a mini-split system would give you the ability to cool that room quite effectively.
Rooms that might tend to have odors or smoke, like a garage or bonus room, would also be ideal because the scent would be self-contained. Large families that fight over the thermostat would love this option, too, because every bedroom would have its own designated AC unit.
Hire A Pro
If you do decide to go with the ductless AC, it is highly recommended that you hire a professional to install it. Choosing the right size system for the home is imperative – otherwise it will not cool correctly. Having a professional installation done gives you the peace of mind that comes with a product warranty and a guarantee from the contractor.
Ductless AC Maintenance And Repair
Just like any other cooling system, ductless air conditioners have filters that must be cleaned monthly. Consistent pet hair or smoke would indicate more frequent cleaning. As long as the filters are kept clean these systems are extremely effective and energy efficient. Repairs can be costly, so proper maintenance is key.
