Learn More About Mini-Split Systems
If you’re exploring an alternative to central A/C, a ductless mini-split is a fantastic choice! Unlike central A/C systems, ductless mini-splits do not require ductwork installation, making them ideal for room-by-room heating needs. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions about mini-split installations:
Do Ductless Mini-Splits Provide Heating and Cooling?
They do! Ductless mini-split systems deliver both heating and cooling capabilities to specific rooms in your home. Functioning as heat pump systems, they eliminate the need for ductwork typically associated with full-scale heat pump setups. One major advantage associated with ductless mini-splits is their suitability for renovations or new room additions. They enable individual control of each room, allowing for energy savings and cost reduction.
Can Installing a Ductless Mini-Split System Save You Money?
In the long run, yes! While ductless mini-split systems may have a higher upfront cost compared to standard A/C units, their long-term efficiency translates into significant heating and cooling savings.
How Long Does It Take to Install a Mini-Split System?
Typically, the installation of a ductless mini-split system takes approximately 1 to 2 days. It generally requires no more time than the installation of a standard A/C system and often takes less time overall. The process typically depends on the number of rooms where the exchanger needs to be installed.
