Is a Ductless Mini Split System a good heating Alternative?
Newer homes and businesses in Seattle have another option when it comes to air cooling and heating system – ductless mini-split. This type of air conditioning unit saves you money. It is easier to install and an energy saver, too. Fischer Heating & Air Conditioning service technicians are fully trained to install and maintain ductless mini-splits.
You can see this type of air conditioning system installed high on the walls of restaurants, office buildings, and homes. The absence of ductwork makes it a very convenient unit. Moreover, there are several advantages that you can get from a ductless mini-split.
- Flexible solutions
Central air conditioning systems and heat pumps traditionally force heated and cooled air through installed ducts and provide general cooling or heating of the entire area. The ductless system delivers cool or hot air directly into identified or selected zones. The system looks the same, with an outdoor unit and a few indoor units. It only requires access to electricity and mounting frames or brackets. The system is more cost-efficient than electric baseboard heaters, space heaters, or window units.
- Money saver
Switching to ductless heating and cooling gives you savings. The system requires less power to operate and are smaller than traditional heating and cooling systems because the air is delivered directly into a room or space. This allows you to choose which rooms to heat or cool. Installing a ductless mini-split may also qualify you for utility rebates or tax credits. Local, state, and federal programs are available so businesses and homeowners can take advantage of the extra savings.
- Indoor air quality improvement
In some instances, the quality of outdoor air is higher than what you actually breathe indoors. This can be due to air ducts that are filled with dust, pollen, and debris. Even if it is cleaned, allergens and dust can be left behind. The multi-stage filtration of a ductless system reduces many particulates in the air, including allergens, pollen, bacteria, and dust.
- Easy and quick installation
For a very busy homeowner, the installation of a ductless mini-split will be quicker and less hassle. A traditional duct cooling and heating system can take weeks to install. Depending on the number of outdoor and indoor units to be set up, a ductless system can be installed within a day. The tubing that connects the outdoor and indoor units of the system only requires a three-inch hole, so there’s no need to rebuild ceilings and walls.
- Lower carbon footprint
Ductless mini-split systems are Energy Star-compliant so you are sure that it is energy and cost-efficient and helps to reduce the carbon released in the air. The system uses R410A, a refrigerant that has zero ozone depletion capacity. Throughout its lifecycle, it will have a lower environmental impact.
