Is Ductless Air Conditioning Right For Me?
With energy costs being as high as they are these days, you do what you can to keep your energy use in check. But you should not have to sacrifice your comfort. There are systems that could help you save money in the long term. Ductless air conditioning is certainly one such option to consider. Ductless air conditioning in Denver, CO has grown more and more common recently.
How Does Going Ductless Save Money?
In a number of different ways, all adding up to a worthwhile initial investment. That’s what this type of system is, an investment. You’ll notice that new ductless mini split systems will generally set you back a bit more than a traditional air conditioner. The long-term energy savings that you’ll enjoy, though, can help to offset this initial cost.
No Leaky Ductwork.
This is one of the major benefits of using a ductless mini split system. A lot of homeowners fail to realize that their air ducts are leaking. That is a serious problem. As even “minor” leaks can lead to considerable energy waste. By eliminating the need for air ducts altogether, this type of system eliminates any such risk of air leaks.
Simple Zone Control.
You can certainly benefit from the use of zone control with your central air conditioner. Keep in mind, though, that this is an upgrade or retrofit that is integrated into the system. With a ductless mini-split, the zone control is just part of the design. Each individual blower is controlled independently of the others, meaning that you cool only those areas that you want to, as much as you want to.
Efficient Heating, Too.
Well, we may have saved the best for last here. Because ductless mini splits are heat pumps, you can actually heat your home very efficiently with the same equipment. Because existing heat is utilized in the heat transfer process, rather than the complete generation of new heat, heat pump technology is among the most efficient in the heating industry!
Advantages of Ductless Mini Split System Installations
Ductless mini splits offer a number of advantages beyond the typical heat pump system. Ductless systems are typically the only climate control systems in homes that use them since they can be used all year–round. This removes the need to store and spend more money on a separate system. Ductless systems are also quite a bit more energy efficient than standard heating systems because they don’t have to burn any fuel to generate heat.
Ductless systems also offer a much finer degree of control over a home’s indoor climate than centralized systems do. Typically, a central heater or air conditioner has one thermostat, and can either condition the entire house or none of it. This leads to hot and cold spots throughout the house. If there are multiple residents, it tends to make at least one of them uncomfortable at any given time.
Each unit used in a ductless system has its own thermostat, which allows you to set the ideal temperature for each area in the home. No more fighting over a single thermostat, and no more having to deal with wide temperature swings throughout the year.
