A new addition is a great way to increase the square footage of your home and enhance its curb appeal. You and your family are sure to love the extra space, but how will you cool and heat your new addition?
Traditional ductwork systems can be costly and may not even be an option for your new space. However, you certainly have to make the space feel comfortable. Ductless mini splits can help you cool and heat these areas efficiently while freeing your home of ductwork.
What Are Ductless Mini Splits? How Do They Work?
Independently Mini splits are an alternative to traditional ductwork heating and cooling systems. A mini split consists of an indoor air-handling unit and outdoor condensing unit. These two parts are connected by copper tubing and a control wire. Ductless mini split systems work well with new additions to homes that have non-ducted heating systems.
Homeowners often choose to have them installed in areas where adding new ductwork is not an option. They’re also ideal for small-to-medium sized areas. Ductless mini splits eliminate cold and hot spots as they are zoned to operate independently. That means you and your family can spend a little less time squabbling over the thermostat.
Design Friendly Options
Most add-on systems lack flexibility when it comes to design. Mini splits, on the other hand, are perfect for the design-conscious homeowner. You’ll find models that stand on the floor, can be hung a wall or from the ceiling, or even mounted in various parts of the room.
Some homeowners worry about the visibility of mini splits. You’ll be glad to know that the latest models have a minimal footprint and are easy on the eyes. They’re much more appealing in appearance than traditional models and are operated by a remote control.
Stick to a System That’s Energy Efficient and Budget Friendly
Mini splits operate without ductworks, meaning you won’t have to deal with those costly leaks, cracks, and holes you find in ductwork systems. They simply do not lose air like their ductwork counterparts, making them incredibly energy efficient.
All that efficiency can add up to savings too. As you conserve air and operate your units with individual thermostats, you’ll see your electricity bill go down over time.
