How Mini Splits Are A Home Climate Solution

If it’s time to install a new air conditioner in your home, a ductless mini split is a great option. It’s an investment in your comfort year-round, and offers a wide variety of benefits over a more traditional forced air cooling system.

Whether you want a ductless mini split or another AC option, our team can help you select the unit that is best for your family’s individual needs. 

Heating and Cooling

One of the greatest benefits of a ductless mini split system is that it offers both heating and cooling all in one system. You don’t have to have a separate air conditioner and heater because a ductless mini split operates on a heat pump system that switches between heating and cooling effortlessly. During the summer it removes heat from the air and blows it outside. During the winter, it transfers heat from the air outside into your home. 


Another benefit of a ductless air conditioner is that you can customize the heating and cooling options for your home. You install an individual mini air conditioner in each room or zone of your house. Bedrooms may each have their own mini split unit, while a larger zone, like a kitchen and dining room that are connected, will share a unit. If you ever add on or remodel your house, moving your mini split units around or adding a new one into the system is easy. You don’t have to overhaul your entire HVAC system because of a change.

Unparalleled Efficiency

Ductless mini split units are more expensive to install upfront compared to a more traditional air conditioning system. However, the energy efficiency makes up for this cost difference. You can easily save up to half on your monthly energy bills when you switch to a ductless mini split unit. The savings can add up over months and years to balance out the initial expense of investing in this higher-quality unit. In fact, you can actually save more over the life of your unit.

Potential Downsides

It’s important to see the big picture and also consider the negative factors that come along with a ductless mini split. After all, no system is perfect. We already mentioned that it has a higher upfront installation cost. But ductless mini split systems also require more maintenance. You have to clean out the air filters in each unit regularly, and maybe more frequently than once a month depending on your indoor air quality.

You also have to schedule biannual maintenance with our team of professionals, once for the unit as an AC and once for the unit as a heater. This really may not be more than you would otherwise schedule for a separate heater and air conditioner. You’re just investing in a single system instead of two separate ones.
