Advantages of Ductless Mini-Split Systems

In recent years, ductless cooling and heating systems, also known as ductless mini-split systems, have become much more widely known and popular among users. Whether you’re looking for an affordable alternative to a central air system, or simply something that can easily control the temperature within a single room of your home, the Outer Banks Heating & Cooling team strongly recommends considering the advantages of ductless systems.

They’re easy to install. Because there is no ductwork necessary, ductless systems are much easier to install than standard central air systems. The quick installation process typically allows for same-day operation, helping to get you and your loved ones comfortable within your home as soon as possible.

They’re cost-effective. Ductless systems use 25-50% less energy than alternative heating and cooling systems, which translates to lower energy bills! Not only will you reap the benefits of lower energy costs, but also since the installation process is quicker and easier, the initial startup costs may be less than that associated with central air systems requiring extensive ductwork.

They’re good for IAQ. Your home’s indoor air quality can be a huge factor that affects your health. No matter the season, the air within your home can become trapped and polluted due to reduced airflow, causing you to be continually exposed to contaminants. Ductless systems offer optional allergen filtration to help reduce the number of germs, bacteria, and viruses in your home’s air to promote improved indoor air quality year-round.

Whether you’re looking for warmth in the winter or coolness in the summer, a single heated room or a fully heated house, a ductless mini-split system may be just what you need to keep you comfortable year-round.
