The hot and long days of summer can really test your home's air conditioning system. If this year's summer temperatures have caused you to discover that your AC system is lacking the ability to keep your home as cool as you would like, it's probably time to install a new system.
Many options exist for modern homeowners looking at cooling equipment for their homes. You should give careful consideration to a ductless mini-split system installation in the near future.
One of the major reasons homeowners love having a ductless mini-split system in their residences is the convenience that these systems offer. You can customize the temperature in each individual room independently, giving you the ability to conserve energy and create the most comfortable living space possible.
No additional air ducts must be installed when adding a ductless mini-split system, and you won't have to worry about investing in duct cleaning in the future either. Many ductless mini-split systems can be controlled with a remote or programmed to change temperatures at a certain time so that you can take the work out of cooling your home.
Another reason to consider a ductless mini-split system is the versatility of these systems. Today's mini-split units can do so much more than just cool your home. Each unit can come equipped with the ability to generate heat or to dehumidify the rooms in your home.
Moisture in the air can cause significant damage to furnishings and fixtures, and high humidity levels make it difficult for traditional cooling systems to function properly. Relying on your ductless mini-split system for heating, cooling, and dehumidification lets you regain total control over your home's interior.
The efficiency of a residential AC system matters. Efficiency affects not only the system's ability to keep your home cool but determines the amount of money you will pay in energy costs for cooling services. A ductless mini-split system can function far more efficiently than a traditional air conditioner. This efficiency boost comes as a result of the ductless design.
Experts estimate that up to 30% of the cooled air moving through your ducts is lost before being delivered into your home. This air loss requires your AC system to work harder to achieve a comfortable temperature. Since air isn't moving through potentially damaged or disconnected ducts in a mini-split system, you can feel the full force of the cool air these systems create.
