The money-saving properties of ductless mini splits

At first, a ductless mini split AC/heat pump may seem more like a construction convenience and a method to improve indoor air quality than as a way to conserve energy. But there are two important ways that going ductless will lower your bills during the year:
  • Reduced energy loss: Air traveling through ducts loses energy along the way, no matter how well-sealed and maintained the ventilation system. Because ducts are placed in closed-off and stuffy areas of a home (between the walls, in the attic), heat will enter through the duct walls and raise the temperature of the area, making the air conditioning less efficient. (The reverse applies for a heat pump in heating mode: heat radiate out of the ducts.) The development of dust and dirt inside ductwork also causes air resistance that lowers system efficiency. Ductless systems give you cooling sent straight from blower units mounted on walls, providing you more efficient heating and cooling.
  • Zone control: Because ductless mini splits use individual blower units placed throughout a home, each with its own individual controls, you can shut off cooling to sections of the building that don’t need it. You no longer have to cool down the entire house when your central cooling comes on, only the rooms that are occupied. You will significantly reduce your cooling bills when you get rid of the need to wastefully condition empty rooms.
We also offer annual maintenance from trained technicians to make sure that your ductless system runs in the best condition and saves you money the way it should. Ductless mini split systems are not the ideal option for every home, so before you choose to have installation of ductless cooling in Ham Lake, MN, contact our specialists at Air Mechanical, Inc.
