Compared to traditional heating and cooling systems, mini-split systems have many advantages, some of which include their high efficiency and ease of installation. Most of these advantages come from the fact that mini-split systems are ductless, meaning you do not need to worry about the challenges that come with ductwork, such as high installation costs and energy loss. In traditional heating and cooling systems, 20-30% of energy is typically lost through ductwork.
Mini-split systems generally consist of several indoor units connected to an outdoor compressor. The indoor units are quiet and most new mini-split systems have enhanced abilities to filter the air from pollutants, mold, and allergens to keep your home healthy. Additionally, having multiple indoor units allows you to precisely adjust the temperature of individual rooms in your home. Many mini-split manufacturers even have apps that allow you to control and monitor your system from your phone anytime, anywhere.
Not to mention, mini-splits run electrically, as opposed to their oil-based counterparts. Therefore, mini-splits can be paired with solar systems to provide your home with an environmentally-friendly heating and cooling option.
