There are many situations when compact, ductless mini split home comfort systems are the perfect choice to both cool and heat your home here in the Beaumont area. Mini splits work well anytime a duct system isn't part of your plan, whether you're building an addition, guest house or apartment on your property or you just want an A/C that keeps you cool using less energy. These compact units deliver conditioned air directly to different rooms or zones rather than routing it through a duct system.
These systems are also called multi-split or variable refrigerant flow (VRF) heat pumps.
Here are just a few advantages that you can count on with a ductless system:
- Save time and money upfront - There's no need for a duct system installation or an extension.
- Lower operating costs for long-term savings - A non-ducted mini split system can save you up to one-third on home heating and cooling, because you don't have the waste that can come when conditioned air circulates through ducts.
- Placement options - The indoor component of a ductless mini split is comparatively small and low profile. Conduits connecting indoor and outdoor components can extend beyond 100 feet for even more setup options.
- Configuration options - Several indoor units can work with a single compressor located outdoors.
- Zone control - With ductless systems, you can control the temperature of each room or zone as opposed to a single thermostat-controlled central system controlling the whole house as a same-temperature unit.
- Get both heating and cooling - This offers a single solution for dwellings that once depended on multiple window A/C units and electric heating.
- Better performance than window units - Mini split systems have a better conditioning capacity, operate more efficiently and run more quietly.
- Safety - There's no need to give up a window, block your view and possibly make your home an easy target with easy entry for thieves.
- Trusted technology - Ductless systems have been in use for more than 30 years worldwide.
