Replacing Your AC This Year? Consider Using a Ductless Mini Split System

No air conditioner is going to last forever. It is generally in your best interest to replace your air conditioning system before that system breaks down entirely, as this allows you to plan on when the work will be completed. After all, your ailing system is most likely to break down during the hottest time of the year, when it is working the hardest.

If your air conditioner has been struggling this summer, or if you are ready to replace it with a new system for efficiency and/or reliability’s sake, consider doing so with a ductless mini split system. Ductless mini splits have a lot to offer homeowners, and are only growing more popular. Read on and let us know if you are thinking about going ductless.

Efficiency, Versatility, And Comfort Are the Keys

Those 3 words can help you to understand the framework of just how a ductless mini split system in Loveland, CO can benefit you. One of the most common causes of subpar energy efficiency is energy loss via duct leaks. While this energy won’t be wasted entirely, as the conditioned air will wind up somewhere within your home, it does make it difficult for your AC to cool your living space evenly and effectively. As such, it will have to work harder than it should in order to do so.

The energy savings don’t stop with the elimination of ductwork from the home cooling equation, though. Because ductless mini splits use heat pump technology, you can actually use the very same system to heat your home than you do to cool it. The system will use existing heat from the air outside in the process, which allows you to heat your home with great energy efficiency.

Plus, you can live more comfortably even as you scale back on energy use. This is due to the fact that the multiple blowers are all controlled with independent thermostats. You can easily maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home, allowing you to both heat and cool your home more thoughtfully.
