There are many reasons why you should look into a ductless mini-split in Lebanon, TN. It’s ideal for cooling one room or many, and it works just as well as an alternative to central heating because you can hook up eight air handlers to one compressor. Below, we’ll give the main benefits of buying a ductless mini-split.
Energy-Efficient and Durable
While a mini-split only cools or heats one room or area, it does so efficiently with no air lost to the outdoors. By contrast, a furnace or ducted heat pump will lose some of its air through holes and cracks in the vents. Combine this efficiency with the directional airflow feature, and you’ll save money on cooling and heating costs while always staying comfortable.
You’ll also save in the long run because mini-splits incur less wear and tear over the years and require fewer repairs. Compared to a ducted heat pump, which can last 15 to 20 years if well-maintained, a mini-split can go for 20 years and longer.
Nothing wears out a heating system’s motor more than the start-up. With variable-speed technology, though, you can avoid frequent cycling and, with it, frequent start-ups. A variable-speed system like a mini-split will slow down and reduce its blowing capacity when it reaches the set point, running quietly in the background until the temperature drops again.
With central heating, sometimes your family members can’t agree on an ideal temperature. Mini-splits, though, can cool or heat each room according to the occupant’s preference. Besides that, you can turn off the air handler in a room once it’s unoccupied, leading to more energy savings.
