Thinking about upgrading to a ductless mini-split system? This type of system has plenty of benefits, including the ability to save you a considerable amount of money. A ductless mini-split system is easy to install and provides both heating and cooling, meaning you’ll have one less system to worry about. Let’s take a closer look at the various ways a ductless mini-split system can save money in your Newnan, Georgia, home.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
A ductless mini-split system uses inverter technology to achieve optimal efficiency. The system’s variable refrigerant flow has a device that controls the speed of the motor. The device modulates the system to reduce start and stop cycles, meaning the system consumes less energy. This results in more efficient cooling, as well as a more comfortable indoor environment.
Reduced Air Loss
Ductless mini-split systems use simple technologies to deliver air via wall-mounted units. Some homes have one unit, while others have multiple units. Since these mini-split systems enable you to go ductless, they can increase heating and cooling efficiency by nearly 20 percent. This increase in efficiency stems from reducing air loss by eliminating the need for ductwork.
Zoned Heating and Cooling
Another way ductless mini-split systems save money is by helping you take advantage of zoned heating and cooling. Gone are the days of having to heat and cool your entire home. Instead, you can heat and cool parts of the home, according to your needs. Say, for example, no one lives on the second floor of your home except when the kids are visiting from college. With zoned heating and cooling, you can heat only the main floor of your home most of the year. This provides maximum energy savings and reduces heating and cooling expenses.
