Mini-split heating and cooling is the preferred HVAC method of the twenty-first century in Greater Cleveland and around the country. As opposed to traditional HVAC methods powered by an air conditioner or furnace that force air through a series of ducts, mini-split systems are entirely ductless.A mini-split system is a great solution for a home that is heated with a steam or hot water boiler.
Warm or cool air is instead delivered specifically to individual rooms or “zones” as needed via small wall-mounted units. As such, there are countless benefits to installing a dual heating and cooling mini-split system in your home or business:
- Energy efficiency. In this time of skyrocketing utility costs in Northeast Ohio, the most attractive thing about a ductless mini-split system is its significant cost-savings. Ductless systems operate on much less power than traditional forced-air systems, and allow homeowners to cool or heat only select occupied rooms rather than the whole home. Because of this, ductless mini-split systems adhere to the EPA’s strict Energy Star guidelines and result in a much smaller carbon footprint.
- Cost savings. Ductless mini-split HVAC allows for exceptional home comfort at minimal cost. In addition, homeowners who install a ductless mini-split systems may be eligible for government tax credits or utility rebates.
- Air quality. With traditional HVAC systems, it is easy for dust, mold, pet dander, and other airborne allergens to clog up air ducts, contaminate the air, and make you sick. In contrast, ductless mini-split HVAC offers multi-stage filtration that drastically reduces air contaminates. Moreover, there is no need to worry about inconvenient annual duct cleanings.
